[ #24977 ]

This morning our fridge has decided it no longer wishes to keep things cold. Not so bad for me as I drink my coffee black, but Heather is suffering without her morning coffee.

So we've called our realtor to ask if she can measure the size of the fridge space in the new house, and later today we'll be out shopping for a new fridge. Bah!

I'm torn between a shiny stainless steel one (looks great, costs a lot) and a plain white one (does the job, costs less). We'll probably go for white because the house we're moving into isn't our dream home, and the kitchen is just average - a stainless steel fridge would probably look overkill in it.

  • When we moved into our new house, the woman who built the place was a KitchenAide fanatic. It seemed only fitting to buy a nice KA stainless side by side. :-)

    How about a fridge with the tv/internet screen so you can post to use.perl while you cook? :-)
    • Well we bought a side by side, but there was no way I was spending $5000 (CAD) to get the fridge with the TV!

      A whole afternoon wasted on that though :-/
  • You wouldn't believe the fingerprints that will show up.
    • Actually we've bought the stainless one. The fingerprints I can deal with because we don't have kids :-)

      I've had S/S appliances before and they're easy to clean if you remember one rule: You MUST dry it with a dry paper towel after cleaning it or the streaks will look worse than the dirt did.
