36" Scholtes double-drawer fridge?

Why_not_meAugust 18, 2013

Just trying to find out about the 36" Scholtes double-drawer under-counter fridge I noticed on A J Madison's website.

Looks great, and would work well for us dimension-wise, and for our lifestyle, and we're building a new kitchen, and space isn't an issue (for once!), and I'm not really thrilled by standard big fridges, to be honest. So, as far as I'm concerned, it's got a lot going for it (and the $ point is much better than other under-counter drawer fridges).

The other Scholtes appliances look pretty neat, too, but it's the fridge I'm particularly interested in.

I did find an article about their N American launch, if anyone's interested:

And a charming video which makes their wall-oven look utterly divine (of course!):

Who owns Scholtes, I wonder?

Here is a link that might be useful: Scholtes 36

Someone has to be the guinea pig. But, the thing with new to your market brands is, if you've got a lot of money, you can afford to be an early adopter. If it fails, you easily just buy something else. If you are trying to do a budget project, it never pays to choose anything but standard sized and branded equipment that's been on the market long enough to have the kinks in production and distribution worked out. You don't have enough capital to be able to so casually replace it if it turns out you get a lemon and can't get any manufacturer's support or repair.

You just have to decide how risk averse you are for your expenditure here.
