Let's see, I have a post on 24 inch counter depth refrigerators, 30 inch, 33 inch and probably 30 posts of the most popular 36 inch size. That leaves the two largest 42 and 48 inch.

First, ovens, dishwashers and refrigerators are manufactured to fit within a cabinet. The most common cabinets are 30 inch and 36 inch, but 42 and 48 are specified in larger kitchens. In a counter depth application, there are far more options for this category especially with the introduction of integrated columns.

Below are some different options:

Sub-Zero 648PRO

  • Jenn-Air JPK42SNXWSF: The largest french door in the industry at 42 inch, the JF is available in an integrated and stainless steel model.
  • Thermador T24IR800SP: Columns are available in 24 inch and 18 inch for a reason; in order to fit within a 42 and/or a 48 inch space. Place the refrigerator on the left and freezer on the right to be totally different. Integrated columns are manufactured by Miele, Gaggenau, Thermador and Bosch. Sub-Zero manufacturers columns as well, but only in the 27 and 36 inch sizes.
  • Viking VCSB548SS: This is a classic profile of a typical 42 or 48 inch refriegartor and is available in Sub-Zero, Thermador, KitchenAid, Liehberr and JennAir. 42 inch is way roomier than the more popular 36 inch size in a side by side.
  • Sub-Zero 648PRO: The 648 Pro emulates a restaurant refrigerator, only uses way less energy. Impressive looking.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
