    We're renovating our kitchen and need to get a new refrigerator. Needless to say I have sticker shock ... $2500 to be specific.

    My wife wants to buy one that has the freezer on the bottom. I like side-by-side.
    Which way is the market trending on this?
    What about you? Have you bought a refrigerator recently?

    Side by side freezer will let out a lot of cccold freezer air when door is open. Definitely the bottom drawer freezer.

    Last one I bought was about $350.
    Did the prices really go up like that, or did you get one of those new fangled ones with a flat screen monitor that tells you calorie count and orders food for you when the stock goes low? :eek:

    The cheap ones I saw were in the $700 - $800 range. Small and old fashioned.
    Circa 2012 models start at $2000 and head north. There is good news... I'll be earning lots of airline miles or hotel points. ;)
