Best Counter-Depth FridgesBy Reviewed.com Staff
There are plenty of ways to give your kitchen a more upscale look, but one of the simplest is to buy a fridge that sits flush with your cabinetry and countertops. Counter-depth fridges are a particularly great fit in small-yet-upscale apartments and condos. Think San Francisco and Manhattan, where space is at a premium.
You'll have to be willing to sacrifice a little storage in exchange for those good looks, but for the right buyer, it's a relatively painless tradeoff. And on the plus side, a counter-depth unit opens up more floor space, so you won't be bumping into things when you're prepping dinner or hosting a party.
Here are our picks for the best counter-depth fridges on the market today. To find out more about a particular model, just click through to read the full review.

The Samsung RF23J9011SR is part of a growing number of four-door fridges. This one features a freezer compartment that converts to a fridge if you need extra space for chilling wine or fresh food, so it's perfect for folks who like to entertain. We also like the counter depth design. Despite a shallower depth, the RF23J9011SR still fits 23 cu. ft. of fresh and frozen food—and does a great job preserving it over time.
The Liebherr CS1360 is a high-end compact fridge. Based on a European design, it's only 24 inches wide and holds 13 cu. ft. of food—a design that's sometimes called "apartment size." If you're away from home a lot, you'll appreciate that it preserves both fresh produce and frozen foods better and for longer than nearly any other fridge. For living large in a small space, you can't do much better than this Liebherr.

The Haier HRF15N3AGS is an unusual fridge. With four doors, a stainless-look finish, a 28-inch width, and counter depth design, it's a perfect fit for upscale apartments. But with sale prices dipping below $800, it's also one of the most affordable multi-door fridges we've ever tested. It cools and freezes well, and Haier's recent purchase of GE Appliances means you can find the HRF15N3AGS at most major retailers.

The KitchenAid KRFC704F proves that fridges don't have to be boring. This counter depth model is pricey, but has bold design accents like wood trim, soft-close drawers, herb bins, and an optional black stainless finish. A pull-out drawer wide enough for cold cut platters plus dual icemakers make it a great party guest. It also features pantry-style slide-away shelves for easy storage of tall items, like wine bottles.
