Cabinet depth refrigerators fit into standard 24 inch deep cabinets with only the doors protruding. A regular counter depth has the custom look of other built in refrigerator at a fraction of the price.

Both are the cornerstone of decent yet affordable packages.

Jenn-Air

Jenn-Air has emerged from the doldrums of the Maytag aquisition with a 300 million investment from new parent Whirlpool. It has been repositioned from affordable to luxury with the emphasis on cooking. Their French door refrigerator is the most popular product due to aggressive rebates.

Jenn-Air has two different sizes and three models to choose from, a 70" and 72" tall. The 70 inch is available with and without an external dispenser and has Euro or Pro style handles as options or a custom overlay to accept your own cabinets and handles.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

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.
