Daewoo frig at Costco.com

rima_waFebruary 12, 2013

We are likely replacing our frig this week, and I'm curious if anyone knows anything about Daewoo frigs. The only counter depth frig I saw on costco.com was by Daewoo, and I have never heard of that make.

Thanks

Chinese through and through. Used to be prison slave labor. Not sure about that anymore. And they just bought Fischer Paykel to try to legitimize themselves. I had a friend that worked at HD when they gave them a trial run. 8 out of 10 of the fridges that they sold came back. That was 7-8 years ago. It's possible they might have improved, but it would have to be a LONG way up for me to ever consider them.

Haier is the Chinese company that purchased Fisher(English not German spelling) & Paykel.

Daewoo is a South Korean conglomerate. They make SxS fridges for Bosch in Mexico for the American market.

Don't know about that particular fridge at Costco.com

Thanks for info. I also thought they were S Korean, but knew nothing about them appliance-wise. Seems as though they make cars.

If it turns out we need to replace our frig, I doubt we will try this one.

Daewoo no longer makes cars - they went bankrupt and General Motors bought what was left of their automotive assets; old Korean Daewoo factories now make Chevys.
