Brief History of KitchenAid Refrigerators.

KitchenAid is an American home appliance brand, and it is one of the subsidiaries of the Whirlpool Corporation. The KitchenAid brand was started in 1919 to build stand mixers but expanded to the manufacturing of refrigerators later in 1986. After acquiring Chambers Corporation of Oxford, MS to enable the introduction of a line of ovens and stovetops — KitchenAid adds its first refrigerators —leading to the brand’s first full line of major home appliances; since this time, they have become a reputable brand in the refrigerator industry.

 

The decision to purchase a refrigerator is not a simple one- If done right, you’ll enjoy its rewards, and if done wrongly, you’ll have to live with its consequences; every day. This decision-making process can be tedious because there are many models, brands, designs, and varying qualities in the market. You can go for an open box Kitchenaid refrigerator if that suits your purpose and you can also choose something else if you consider it the best for you. To assist your decision-making process, we have prepared a checklist of factors to consider to make the right refrigerator purchase. 

 

Hence, whether you can afford to spend under $600 for a basic model, or over $3,000 for a door-in-door fridge with many options, there’s a refrigerator out there calling your name. You just have to research before clicking that “buy” button. Hence, these factors are to be considered before buying a refrigerator and not after you must have bought the refrigerator.

Make necessary measurements

When it comes to getting a fridge that serves your purpose satisfactorily, you just have to take a measurement of everything- the fridge itself; to ascertain its size, the path through which you’ll get to the location it’ll live and finally measurement of that location where it’ll live. 

 

The failure to take into consideration any of these necessary measurements can indeed carry grievous consequences- Just imagine you get home with your new refrigerator for the first time, and you cannot even get through the main door; wouldn’t that be frustrating; it’ll be more frustrating even, to realize that the refrigerator itself cannot fit into the designated spot; if you have to make an impromptu reconstruction just to fit your refrigerator, then there is a problem!

 

Design/Style

Modern refrigerators are categorized into several styles. You can tell one differently from the other simply by the kind of door attached to it. Not that there aren’t other distinguishing factors, but that is the apparent one. The various refrigerator styles include; the Top freezer, Bottom freezer, the Side by Side and the French door;

 

Top Freezer: This category has existed a long time, and as the title implies, the freezer is situated above the refrigerator compartment. These refrigerators may look old school but are highly efficient. Apart from their efficiency, they are also quite affordable and easy to use-Most them do not have any complicated operating system or technology. Some of the best of this design include; the Insignia NS-RTM18WH7 and Samsung RT18M6215SG.

 

Bottom Freezer: There aren’t too many of these on the market, but if you find one you like, they’re cheaper than French door models, with some of the same advantages.

 

Side-by-Side: Just like the name suggests, the refrigerator and freezer on this are right next to each other on the side. When we speak of the easiest refrigerator, we just have to pick this one because it keeps both fridge and freezer compartments very well within arm’s reach. Apart from this, a side-by-side has just enough room for nearly all of your produce; If you like to keep large frozen pizzas, pans of lasagna, or similar wide foods, be sure the freezer side has room.

 

French Door: French doors are rather recent and stylish. Like the others, you can easily tell it apart by its door positions. has two doors for the refrigerator compartment and a freezer drawer on the bottom. They’re quite stylish and expensive. There are a few common variants of the three-door French door look, including the four-door version that has an additional pull-drawer, and a quad-door version. 

 

Columns: Columns are relatively new in the fridge scene, and they have been making waves since they came around. It is a major trend for people who are just constructing a kitchen space and those who are carrying out major renovations in their kitchen. Column refrigerators are built into walls and kitchen cabinets, hence allowing you to customize your kitchen space however you please. Columns refrigerators also afford the benefit of versatility as they are great for storing wine, allowing for a precise temperature and humidity and this is even more fascinating as temperature and humidity are now your exclusive reserve. Judging by all the attractive benefits you get from a column refrigerator, you can tell that they’re relatively more expensive than other refrigerators on the list.

Budget

This may seem cliche, but it is true to an extent that the quality you get from a product is significantly relative to the amount of money you are willing to throw at it. That said; if, for example, you want a French Door refrigerator equipped with modern technology features, you just have to be ready to pay the price because they do not come cheap.

Storage

The size of your kitchen and your family’s eating habits will determine how many cubic feet of storage your refrigerator needs. While the footprint of the fridge (i.e. the exterior width and depth) may be restricted due to your kitchen design, there are fridges that make great use of space and those that don’t. In-door ice dispensers, for example, are convenient, but they take up room that might otherwise hold more groceries. For further item accommodation, some fridges also have flex-shelves customizable to purpose.

Finish

Another consideration to make when you choose is the particular finish or outward look of the refrigerator in question. This is good aesthetic beauty as well as durability. To a significant extent, the ease or otherwise of cleaning your refrigerator also depends on its finish- Stainless steel materials are quite easy to clean.You can conveniently wipe its stainless steel body with baking soda; When the stainless steel finish is black, it harbors more dirt and it is way easier to clean.

 

Stainless: Stainless steel has a clean, metallic look, and from this look, you can tell it is durable. More importantly, many of today’s stainless refrigerators are smudge-proof, so you won’t spend hours polishing off fingerprints.

 

Black stainless steel: The up-and-coming finish, each brand has its own take on it, making it hard to mix brands. Black stainless resists fingerprints, making it easier to maintain. Although magnets will stick to most black stainless finishes, they can scratch easily, so think twice about using them.
