If this doesn’t make you want to buy a Liebherr humidor

Warners’ Stellian brought in a custom cigar roller for an event we hosted last week, and the cigars were a hit.

Many of us had never smoked a freshly rolled cigar, nor watched the process, so it was certainly a treat.

Our Liebherr humidor XS200 wasn’t for sale (photo left), as this was a trade association event, but it was such a hit, we actually sold some right there. While it doesn’t come with a custom cigar roller, the Liebherr humidor is the perfect addition to any cigar aficionado’s collection.

Haven’t heard of the Liebherr humidor? Read my previous post.

Short refrigerators that are long on style

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.

You say,

But, that’s awesome, because then I can accommodate dozens of barely used condiment bottles more fresh fruits and veggies! 

Perhaps.

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.

Frigidaire’s new French-door refrigerator

It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s taken until now for Frigidaire to make a French-door refrigerator, which I learned about yesterday in training (aka Warners’ Stellian University, no joke – that’s what we call it).

FGHN2844LF - $1,799.95
FGHB2869LF - $2,499 (or $2,199 for Pearl or Ebony)

They’re pretty big, measuring standard depth, 36 inches across and a capacity of 28 cubic feet. We’ll be getting counter-depth models in the winter, if you’re holding your breath till then.

Both models have gliding shelves, a full-width drawer big enough for a sheet cake or — if you’re like me — 35 beverage cans and another can dispenser on the door to boot.

The sticker price on the FGHN2844LF is $1,799, but you can also score a $100 Warners’ Stellian rebate through Aug. 1.

For about $400, the FGHB2869 (in smooth white or black — pearl/ebony) you move up to an ice and water dispenser, slick showcase LED lighting, in-unit air filtration (i.e. no icky smell or ice taste) and a really sweet wine/2-liter/can caddy holder thing.

For another $300, the FGHB2869LF moves you up to stainless steel pictured above right.

Also — and this is totally aesthetic, I-want-you-to-envy-my-fridge feature — I had a slight oh-ah moment over the IQ-touch control panel on the inside of the left door, just like the Electrolux models.

Temperature controls that beg to be touched -- nice.
