Our more…experienced…customers like to bemoan how “they” don’t make em like they used to (often in refers to refrigerators; see example of how they used to make them).
Unfortunately, pretty much everyone copes with the sorrow of planned obsolescence these days so that statement is pretty obvious.
No, they don’t make them like they used to. But they also don’t make refrigerators as tall as they used to.
But, that’s awesome, because then I can accommodate
dozens of barely used condiment bottles more fresh fruits and veggies!
But older homes with kitchens designed around now outmoded appliance dimensions can’t fit today’s 68-, 69- and 70(plus)-inch refrigerators.
Thankfully, top-freezer refrigerators come in a variety of sizes and tend to be shorter. But if you’re looking for more upscale form and function, you should check out a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator.
The Australian appliance-maker sells short bottom-freezer refrigerators in stainless steel…even with a water dispenser on the front! These short refrigerators also come in white.
Fisher & Paykel is pretty much our go-to brand for refrigerators under 68 inches.
