Thin refrigerator

Hugh's picture

Does anyone know of appliance centers that might have a narrow depth refrigerator?

Subzero makes one but I think it is thousands of dollars. I would ideally like the normal heigth but would love to find one that is closer to 20 inch depth. Normal width is okay, it is really the depth I am concerned about

Any ideas?

In general, I think you'll find the ones designed for counter depth will be more expensive. I would say google 'counter depth refrigerator'

Even counter depth fridges

Even counter depth fridges are still 26"-27" deep (with door). Some of the small 3-4 cf refrigerators will be that shallow, but they are only 3 ft high. Maybe some sort of a refrigerator specially designed for people with disabilities would be out there, but a quick check on Google didn't show any of those anywhere near 20" and full height. Good Luck. You could always bolt a bunch of mini fridges together.

Check out the GE Profile

Check out the GE Profile ones. They're counter-depth. My parents had one for a few years and made the mistake of getting one that was side-by-side. It's become the garage refridgerator (it still mystifies me why one needs two refridgerators when it's 2 people living there) because it didn't hold anything.

They're still pricey but nowhere near Subzero I believe. When I become rich and famous that's the fridge I'm getting...of course I'll never see it because my cook will be preparing meals for me...

I am always impressed with

I am always impressed with the help and answers I receive on here.

And wow, you even checked google for me.

The only ones I found were some from Denmark that seem to have problems with the better business bureau, are expensive and freezer is not frost free.

I will check the GE Profile series, good idea.

Thanks

When we moved in & found out

When we moved in & found out that a normal fridge wouldn't fit (which of course we did the hard way, by ordering a normal fridge & having the guys come & deliver it & realize our doorways were too narrow), we ended up getting a Frigidaire counter depth model from Lowe's. They had to special order it & it was about a grand more than a normal fridge of the same cubic footage, but we need cold food, so what are you going to do?

Anyway, the ones they can special order from Lowe's are all here. Might be a good frame of reference at least for comparison shopping.

Actually, these prices aren't too bad for a 'top of the line' though I didn't bother to see what tax, tags and delivery would bring the total to.

We bought a fancy french door fridge summer before last...MSRP was something like $2200 because of the bells and whistles. We got ours for $1200 or so plus tax tags and delivery by going to the sears scratch and dent up in franklin mills mall. The scratches, on the side, are all hidden by the counter and wall surrounding the beastie.

I forgot to add, if you want

I forgot to add, if you want 'new', check out the appliance store at the corner of Richmond and Allegheny. They likely won't have a floor model, but they've beaten the big box prices on everything except the scratch and dent fridge and on the fancy Maytag front-loader washers...they used to beat the prices on the fancy front loaders until Maytag threatened to pull their license to sell Maytag for not charging the premium other stores charge.

Anyway, if you're going to do shopping around, check out this place.

Sears outlet at Franklin

Sears outlet at Franklin mills has good prices.
If in a hurry.
Try Sears on line, they often have internet sales.
Caveat .... the sears delivery, unless it recently improved, was not super.

Kindness .... pass it on.

Hugh -- just bought a fridge

Hugh -- just bought a fridge from whirlpool that was 30" deep...thats the thinnest I could find. The consider ones at 30" or below a "built in" look and as a result the prices jump. I paid 1700 for mine and that was with a %40 discount -- I think it retails for around 2600.

Good luck finding a fridge that is both thin and affordable.

Hey, I actually went to the Richmond and Allegeheny store for a new Washer and Dryer and then went to the new appliance store in the Mall, Frankford Applicance and Bedding, and I was quoted over $100.00 less on the same brands with three year warranty contract with Whirlpool.

They ar in the old Dinkin Donuts space at The Port Richmond Plaza.

I do not know the name of the store, but there is a new place on Chestnut St, around 10th - 13th that has many different types.

Home Depot and Lowe's does too.

I think you might just as

I think you might just as well make a special order for such appliances. Not everybody wants a thin refrigerator so the manufacturers don't make a special product line for this kind of products. Neverhteless this is possible through special orders. You could try it at Sears.
