French door counter depth fridge comparo. KA vs Elux
Hello there. First post here and hoping to glean some opinions regarding counter depth fridges. We have KA pro-handled appliances (rangetop, DW, double oven) throughout our new kitchen but have yet to select a counter depth fridge.
We only have 24" cabinets around the cutout and are hoping to achieve a flush built in look with the fridge. In hindsight we should have had the builder space out the cabinets a couple inches from the back wall to allow us some extra leeway...
In any event, I think we've narrowed down the choices to two contenders based on the pro-handle look and shallow depth.
The ElectroLux ICON E23BC68JPS seems to have a slightly more updated interior with LED lighting. The handles are slightly more substantial as well. There doesn't seem to be too much movement on the $3,200 price though.
The KitchenAid KFCP22EXMP looks very similar but the french doors didn't quite close as nicely IMO and the interior could stand to be more modern. The pricing is better (down around $2,800) and would increase our rebate by another $200 since we have all the other KA appliances already ordered.
FWIW, the spec sheet says the Elux is an additional 1" shallower which would help it sit more flush with the cabinets. Is there anything to choose between the two or is one preferred over another? I've googled the models fairly extensively but still haven't made a decision either way.
If there is another brand or model we should be considering instead I'm happy to investigate other options. We don't even mind spending more so long as it's a french door, no ice though door, pro-handled, and preferably as close to 24" cabinet depth as possible (without doors).
Thanks so much for any and all assistance!
