What Type of Refrigerator is Right for You?

Long gone are the days when a refrigerator was a just a big white box in your kitchen that kept milk and eggs from spoiling. Today’s models are designed to cater to different aesthetics, space constraints, even eating habits. Before shopping for a new refrigerator, consider the pros and cons of the following popular varieties. And remember to think about the space you have in your kitchen, price and ease of use for your family.

Freezer-on-top or top mount
The most common model available, freezer-on-top refrigerators have a wide selection of styles, sizes, colors and interior features, such as temperature-controlled crispers and filtered water dispensers. The freezer is at eye-level, which makes access to frozen foods easiest and produce stored in crispers most cumbersome. Freezer-on-top models tend to be roomier than other types and sport wider shelves in both the refrigerator and freezer compartments.

Pros: less expensive, high storage capacity, wide shelves
Cons: hard-to-reach bottom shelves and crispers, less stylish than newer types of refrigerators
Width: 23 inches to 36 inches
Depth: 27 inches to 33 inches
Height: 60 inches to 69 inches

With their two adjacent compartments, side-by-side refrigerators are all about easy access to both fresh and frozen foods. In some models, the refrigerator and freezer compartments can be narrower than those in freezer on top or bottom-mount refrigerators, making it tough to store bulkier items like a gallon of milk or a take-out pizza box. Some brands come with adjustable bins and shelves and amenities like in-door ice makers that can free up interior space.

Pros: easiest access to both fresh and frozen foods
Cons: requires space on either side to accommodate both doors, narrow compartments and shelves
Width: 31 inches to 36 inches
Depth: 28 inches to 34 inches
Height: 66 inches to 69 inches

Freezer-on-bottom or bottom mount
Because freezer-on-bottom refrigerators aren’t as common as other models, there will be fewer styles and options to choose from. But expect these refrigerators to grow in popularity. They put fresh food at eye-level, and less used frozen items where it’s harder to reach. And with the freezer underneath the fridge, it needs less energy to keep food frozen and cooling is more consistent and even throughout the compartment.

Pros: energy efficient, fresh food at eye-level
Cons: fewer options to choose from, many models don’t come with in-door ice and water
Width: 33 inches
Depth: 32 inches to 35 inches
Height 66 inches to 69 inches

French door
A relatively newcomer on the refrigerator front, French doors have been cropping up on home and garden television shows. Featuring two adjacent refrigerator doors on top and a pullout freezer compartment below, these super stylish fridges combine the best of the side-by-side and bottom mount models.

Pros: stylish, energy efficient, high organizational capacity
Cons: expensive, can be difficult to find in narrow widths
Width: 30 inches to 35 inches
Depth: 29 inches to 33 inches
Height: 68 inches

Scratch and Dent Appliances

If you’re looking for Kitchen Appliance Packages and you’re on a tight budget, here are some ideas to consider.

Most of the Scratch and Dent Appliances can be found at stores that call themselves “Outlets” or “Warehouse Stores”.  Many of your major brand name appliances have their own S&D stores.  They are sometimes called Clearance Stores and they are away from the regular store.

Of course you can look at some of the “used” shops in your area, and you might meet your need just fine there.  Sometimes the Pawn shops in your town will buy up good used appliance and you may find that some of them will be damaged with a scratch or dent. Another place to look is in the phonebook for companies that have “distributor” as part of their name.  We’ve seen some in our area that have damaged appliances for sale.

Most people can dab a little paint and do a little sanding, which should be sufficient for the usual damage that you’ll find. If you’re comfortable with that, this is good for you because you will be able to fix small damages and still get large discounts for the units.  You can usually find a real good deal at these stores and there is usually nothing wrong with the mechanical part of the appliance.  You normally find just the outside damaged and that will only be a little bit.  Usually the scratch is only in the paint and not down into the metal or plastic.  When it is extra deep, you might be able to get some “auto body” filler and spread it thin over the scratch.  Then using a block with some “wet” sandpaper, “block sand” the area until it is super smooth and then re-paint it to make it look like new.  The easy ones will just take a little dab of enamel paint from an appliance store and you won’t even have to sand them or anything.

We’re just talking about Scratch and Dent Appliances now so don’t forget there are mechanical parts below or inside that outer shell.  You need to look the outside all over to find the places that you can fix.  After you’ve done that don’t forget the other things that you should check also.

That’s right the moving parts.  The mechanical parts.  The things that make it work.  Most all of these sales are “AS IS” “NO RETURN” policies that will leave you with useless appliance if you can’t fix it.

So make sure you check the following:

Are all of the components included or installed?  This means that you need to do your homework before you go to know what is normally included.  Make sure you have a salesperson or manager with you and ask them where all the parts, adapters and connections are for the unit.

If you don’t have a truck or trailer make sure you negotiate the delivery of the unit into the price.  Most of the appliances that you want are going to be big and heavy and will sometimes take not only a truck but a lift gate on the back of the truck as well as a professional cart or dolly to move the unit from the driveway to your steps, up your steps to the door then through the house and in some cases down another set of steps to the basement to where you want the washer or drier or freezer or disposal unit.  Even if you have to pay an extra $50.00 it may be cheaper than the damage it could cause your own body.

Finding places to go to look at Scratch and Dent Appliances is a good job for a rainy Saturday.  You’ll get a feel for price and condition and who you feel comfortable dealing with.  After you get a list of 6 or 8 places you find acceptable, check around with friends and family and even other appliance stores.  Ask about the companies on the list and see if they are reputable.  After you get your list down to 3 or 4 that you can deal with go in and ask for the best price.  Remember these companies usually buy in bulk, at least small quantities and that means that they have a good margin to work with.  Always ask if they will let the appliance go out the door for $XX.xx, and make it about 2/3′s the asking price.  It’s always good to ask.

Now get out there and have some fun.  Make a deal!
