More Shallow Depth Ideas

Shallow depth refrigerators are desirable in a kitchen, because the sides do not protrude. Thus the kitchen looks more linear and more attractive. SubZero pioneered the pro niche in the 60s and 70s, and were followed by GE Monogram, KitchenAid and Thermador. Later, Amana decided to manufacture the regular shallow depth product and were followed(and beaten up by) GE Profile, KitchenAid and JennAir.

Now there are a number of alternatives from an endless number of companies. Unfortunately they tend to be somewhat expensive starting at $1600 as well as only fitting a 36 inch or over cabinet.



Fisher-Paykel and Blomberg manufacture smaller widths, and are decent alternatives to traditional shallow depth products.

    Steve, I was in your store about three weeks ago looking at wine fridges. On your blog you showed a few different ones and I wanted to take a look at them in person. First off, I was extremely disappointed with the service. I stopped and asked someone (Jeff or John maybe?) where they were located and got a finger point with "over there." There was no offer to help or actually try to sell the product. The only reason I am writing is because I still have not found the wine fridge and wanted to know if the 5 under counter fridges you had on display were the only ones available? I thought I saw a few free standing ones on your website.

  2. First, I apologize for the lack of effort. This is not the norm for our company, and is not tolerated by the management of this company

    We just built a display, which houses 24 different undercounter refrigerators, beverage centers and wine coolers...You should definitely find a suitable product

    Thank you again for your feedback
