There's quite a lot of storage options available in the KitchenAid's fridge. Four adjustable half-width shelves, a fixed full-width shelf under those, two large vegetable drawers and a full-width temperature controlled drawer gives consumers plenty of options to house their food just the way they want to. The combination of LED lighting, a recessed water filter, and an on-the-door ice maker means there's fewer spatial obstructions than usual. In total, this KitchenAid offers a sizable 11.53 cubic feet of fridge storage.
Keeping the ice maker on the door means there's more shelf space in the fridge proper...but conversely, there's less room on the door. Two small fixed shelves located under the ice maker offer some extra storage, perfect for things like condiments or salad dressings.
The right fridge door has four shelves, the top three of which are adjustable. It doesn't have a designated dairy bin, but if anything, that makes the available storage somewhat more flexible.
The freezer in the KitchenAid is split up into six distinct compartments. There are two wide pull-out drawers on the top, and a large bucket on the bottom attached to the door. This bucket is split up by a plastic divider, creating a separate left and right section (the divider itself also allows you to store things inside of it).
The front of the door hold a surreptitious little storage cavity called the In-Door Pizza Storage; if you place a frozen pizza on its side, it can stand up in this little compartment, allowing you to keep other items in the drawers and bins; it can easily fit two or three full-sized pizzas at a time. In total, all these storage options amount to 4.91 cubic feet of usable freezer space.
Below are the manufacturers own figures for capacity, and our own measurements for usable capacity. The manufacturers figures do not take account of the shelves, drawers and other removable features, but our measurements do account for the space these take up.
