Before we get started with the problems of integrated refrigerators, please understand they are a great way to enhance the look of your kitchen, because it fits seamless to your cabinets and can accept panels.

It’s a great way to make your kitchen unique from the traditional suite of stainless appliances.

In this video you will learn the three main reasons you should never buy an integrated refrigerator. Then we will show you how to make a larger counter-depth refrigerator look integrated for less money. We will also discuss why in some instances you should absolutely buy an integrated refrigerator. In the end you will know if this is the right type of refrigeration for you.

There are several reasons to consider buying an integrated refrigerator and in some instances it’s the only option to achieve that neater, seamless look. You also get flexibility to place hem anywhere rather than buying the single unit

In the most common 36-inch size, you do lose 5-10% capacity from an already shallow counter depth.

In the larger 42 and 48 sizes, you will pay way more for columns than the one larger counter depth pro with similar cubic footage.

Just think about how you use your refrigerator. You do have options to incorporate a larger unit in your kitchen plan while still making it look good aesthetically.

I really appreciate that you tell us the truth — the good, the bad and the ugly.

Gee. I thought counter depth (as compared to standard depth) was an irredeemably stupid idea.

How does this argument apply to Jenn-Air's 42" integrated french door unit? We're in the process of building our kitchen out around that unit, because it was far cheaper than separate columns, with good width for storage, while achieving the clean aesthetic we're going for

I'm looking to buy a panel refrigerator for my new house I'm building. I've narrowed down my decision to the Frigidaire Professional 32" column all fridge and all freezer combo and the Electrolux 19cu in all fridge and all freezer columns (EI33AF80WS and EI33AR80WS) . My question is that I'm having trouble finding information on the Electrolux regarding quality and reliability so I can compare it to the Frigidaire. Which has better reliability according to your data and service calls in the past and which option would you recommend?
