What Are The Best Counter Depth Refrigerators? (Ratings/Reviews)

The most well read blog post was written in April 2011 and was titled The 5 Best Counter Depth Refrigerators. I wanted to revisit this topic and see if the products and prices were similar.

First, counter depth refrigerators do not protrude from the base cabinet except for the door, so you do not see the sides, which is a much better aesthetic. In fact, counter depth refrigerators are probably the best place to spend money for a nicer looking kitchen.

Some Examples

Counter depth differs from professional counter depth, which are taller and have the compressor on the top. Integrated refrigerators fit totally within the cabinet. Both options are way more expensive than a regular counter depth refrigerator.

  • Samsung RF197ACRS, $1399 - Samsung dominates the 33 inch width category. Their nearest competitor is hundreds more, so they win by default. Most kitchens plan a 36 inch cabinet with 33 inch being a distant third, so check before you buy. Read The Best 33 inch Counter Depth Refrigerators.

  • Frigidaire FGHC2342LF, $1339 after rebate - You are looking at the least expensive counter depth refrigerator (hence its popularity). Unfortunately, French doors sell 15-1 compared to side by sides, but this is a viable option for less money.

  • Bosch B22CS30SNS, $2139 - It's amazing that Bosch will not market a French door counter depth until 2014. Buy this refrigerator if you are looking for a kitchen package. At different times of the year, they will offer 25% rebates (like now), and the rest of their products are very competitive. Read about Bosch Stainless Steel Packages.

  • Frigidaire FPHC2398LF, $1979 after rebates - Frigidaire Gallery is number 2 on our list with decent features for the price.

  • Jenn-Air JFC2089WEM, $1669 - This product really owns this niche for a variety of reasons. It is stylish, with good features like an interior dispenser and icemaker. It is also part of the best package sold under $5,000. See the best selling kitchen packages.
