Shallowest side-by-side CT refrigerator advice please!

Posted by culina (My Page) on

After lurking this forum in the context of a full kitchen overhaul / redesign, I'm looking for some advice re: appliances, specifically, a refrigerator.

I'm looking for a black, side-by-side (not French door), counter-depth refrigerator as shallow as possible. It seems that the KitchenAid KSC24C8EYB is my best bet.

My head is spinning after all the research, Consumer Reports, etc etc, and I'm wondering if there might be some options I'm overlooking!

My max width is 36", needs to be side-by-side, ice/water a plus, black is a must.

Thank you in advance!

That KA is 28 15/16" deep without handles.

Frigidaire FFSC2323LE is 26 7/8" without handles.

That is 2 1/16" difference.

Deeageaux -- thank you so much for your reply! I'm going to take a closer look at the Frigidaire vs the KA -- apparently, with handle, there's a .5 inch difference, so there must be something interesting going on with the handles!

I've really enjoyed reading your expertise + wisdom here, and am grateful for your time. I specifically enjoyed your discussion re: Viking refrigerators and manufacturing in another post.

I was at once led to believe that Viking purchased the original Amana factories (my mom has an Amana that's about 15 years old, and isn't even the same sport as the current models), and it was great to read about the Whirlpool factories.

The reason I brought up Viking is that it's how I got to the KA: I had the opportunity to buy a discontinued Viking side by side (Viking Professional Stainless Steel 36" Model: VCSF136DSS), but I was assured that the KA was identical to this Viking except for the door...
