Which Bummer of a Fridge -- Electrolux, or Bosch?
Trying to figure out which fridge to buy for a pre-existing 36x25x70 cabinet opening, and I've narrowed it down to two models which both seem to be nightmares for lots of folks -- the Electrolux Icon Professional side-by-side and the Bosch 800 Series side-by-side.
Because of the layout of our house, the refrigerator is pretty much staring you in the face when you open the front door, so aesthetics are a major factor -- major enough that I'm willing to spend too much for a somewhat-iffy but pretty machine. My criteria are as follows:
Close fit in the cabinet opening
Side-by-side (I had an LG french-door style and hated it)
Integrated water/ice in the door (non-negotiable, per husband)
Clean, industrial look with straight lines -- no curves
Stainless or stainless-look
So of these two choices, which is less likely to cause me grief? And are there any other options in the $2-$4k range?
