Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Perfect fit - completes renovation

Have had this unit for just over 1 week and we are very happy with it. We miss not having an egg and a butter dish holder. Very bright lighting so very useful in finding items on the back of the shelves.

6/16/2018

A wall restricted the size and style of refrigerator that would fit in our space. We were concerned this would be too small however the interior is well designed and can fit much more than expected. The freezer however is as expected - quite small but is not a problem for us since we have a chest freezer.

Top door has to be pushed shut otherwise it doesnt seal and the ice tray over fills so all the ice cube come out in one big chunk. Should be better quality for the price.

We love our new fridge

8/6/2017

We carefully chose our appliances for our kitchen remodel and kind of struggled with the size of the fridge. We thought we needed a bigger unit but have discovered that this 30 beauty if plenty big enough for us. I am so happy we did not get the larger model. We love the alarm feature which sounds when the door is left open. We love the Slate color and appreciate that the refrigerator is always free of finger prints
