  1. Aloha! We live in Southern California. We have a white, 1957 O’Keeffe & Merritt 2-oven, 2-broiler, 4-burner, griddle-in-the-middle stove that is the centerpiece of our kitchen. She is a chrome 50′s beauty! We need to replace our refrigerator — and want something with a 50′s look but all of the modern conveniences. Our current refrigerator is 36-inches wide, 30-inches deep, and 68-inches tall. Measuring out from the back wall, it extends 10.5-inches past the face of the cabinet it is located next to. If our refrigerator’s handles were on the left side, it wouldn’t have to extend past the cabinets and our kitchen would look bigger. What kind of retro, 50s-style white refrigerators do you have? Please advise.

    • I just purchase big chill frig and 6 burner stove. Well purchased in Nov it is now May and have not got stove yet they said 8 week del. the frig came in but it will not freeze repair man been out 3 times they say they are going to replace frig. Nothing but trouble with this company. If I had to buy again would not go with big chill. The drawers also want to fall out of the fridge.

  2. I’ve heard the Big Chills are really good refrigerators and I agree the Elmira is the best looking. The Smeg’s and Gorenje would make a great option for an apartment or just a couple. They are too small for a family unless used as a second refrigerator for storing beverages and overflow.

  3. in the last picture with the green fridge… what is the brand of the water dispenser next to the fridge? I NEED IT. i’m in love with it and have been looking everywhere for a product like that. please please email me and let me know

  4. The big chill is pretty but I have had nothing but trouble with big chill appliances, if u but these u better plan for many days off work. I have had to take off work about 7 times to meet delivery people ( wrong stove, damaged stove, and repair men for the frig) waiting for good frig to be delivered, if you purchase big chill I hope u have better luck than me. Once they have your money they gotcha nothing to do but wait. I have been waiting since Nov for a stove still do not know when it will ship to me. Go with another brand. Even if u have to go with the GE retro model and paint it

  5. I loved the Smeg, but read nothing but awful user reviews. I also love the Gorenje, but haven’t found if they are available to be sold in the states yet. Does anyone know?
