Refrigerator Panels $1700?

Posted by portconway (My Page) on

We are working on our kitchen design and have already purchased our appliances. They are paid for, but not delivered yet. We chose a paneled refrigerator by Thermador. I learned today from the cabinet maker that my panels for my refrigerator are going to run $1781 (3 panel doors for french door frig with freezer on bottom.) The panels are almost as expensive as the frige!

I was told it was because the Thermador Doors and made to be fully integrated which is a more complex refrigerator door. Is this true or just an excuse for being gouged? Anyone with experience on fully integrated paneled refrigerator doors?

You are not being gouged ,

and Thermador Freedom French door fridges cost $7000 !

Each of those panels are going to take 40 min to an hour EACH to install on the fridge too.

We have a Thermador single door paneled fridge. I can't access the information right now, but might be able to later today (the cost of the panels themselves). I will tell you that the doors are quite complicated to install, and it took our very good contractor at least a half-day to get them done. Still glad we did it - they look great!

RE: Refrigerator Panels $1700?

We installed a SubZero in our previous home in early 2008. We paid $1000 for all of the panels (we had a 736 series, so 1 large 36" panel for the refrigerator and 2 smaller, rectangular shaped panels for the 2 freezer sections). It was a spec house we bought, so the local custom cabinet company that builder used made the panels to match (the cabinets were dark stain - no special glaze, etc.). This house was on the gulf coast of AL and the cabinet company was from Gulfport, MS - I'm sure prices would probably be different in other parts of the country. The $1000 did not include installation - we paid someone else install.
