A counter depth refrigerator does not protrude from the cabinets. It is more aesthetically pleasing because you won't see the sides. It is also a benefit to have a shallower refrigerator in a galley kitchen or with an island design. There will be more room between the refrigerator and the island itself.
For this article, we will focus on the non-professional shallow depth products. Professional refrigerators are taller at 84", have the compressors on the top and have the "restaurant" or commercial look and price.
Integrated refrigerators fit totally inside the standard cabinet, so they are seamless and indistinguishable from the cabinet itself. Only the doors protrude on the pro and regular counter depth.

5 Best Counter Depth Refrigerators
Pricing updated for Black Friday Holiday 2015
$999 after rebates: Frigidaire suffers from an identity crisis, but is actually one of the most reliable brands sold at Yale. I really like this refrigerator especially with the rebates. This side by side is 23 cubic foot with an ice and water dispenser and the stainless is finger proof. You could package this with other stainless appliances for less than $2,999.
$1,249 after rebates: You buy a refrigerator based on the cabinet openings. 80% of the refrigerator openings are 30 or 33 inch, yet 90% of the counter depth products are 36 inch width. I like the Samsung, because it is the best counter depth french door refrigerator at 33 inches wide. Read this post about 33 inch counter depth refrigerators.
$1,799 after rebates: The Frigidaire Gallery is 23 cubic foot or three cubic feet bigger than the Jenn-Air refrigerator and has an external ice and water dispenser.
$2,149 (after rebates): Jenn-Air was the first upscale counter depth French door on the market about 10 years ago at $2,600. It is still a decent refrigerator with an interior icemaker. This refrigerator is also part of our best selling package. This model now has LED lights and concealed hinges.
$2,339 (after rebates): I like the style, plus it is even more aggressively priced when purchased in a package.
One (very) small word of caution: You do sacrifice between 3-5 cubic footage and pay $200-500 more for a counter depth refrigerator.
However, counter depth refrigerators are perhaps one of the best products to affordably design into a high-end kitchen. If you have any questions, please call us at 617-825-9253
