A fast fill refrigerator is a refrigerator that is designed by Whirlpool or KitchenAid to dispense water at twice the speed of a traditional refrigerator. A fast fill refrigerator contains a high-flow water valve and increased dispenser area.
Fast fill refrigerators are typically designed as side-by-side refrigerators with the filter in the base grille. The filter reduces chlorine taste, lead and mercury in the water, and it should be changed every six months. The water filter is typically a one-touch removable filter that releases and is replaced with minimal effort. Fast fill refrigerators commonly have an indicator light to alert owners when it is time to replace the filter.
