For some reason, I am super picky about particular things, as we all are I suppose. When searching for my new refrigerator, I found it very difficult to find one that did NOT have a water dispenser in the door, that was NOT counter depth (I had the room to go deep), was a side by side and had handles that at were at least close to my other GE Cafe appliance handles. This proved to be a very difficult task!
Because evidently I thrive on difficult, 'you can't get that', tasks…I was determined to figure something out!
This Whirlpool side by side had almost everything I liked, including the price of under $1000. Unfortunately it did not have the fancy hardware I was looking for. But that didn't stop me!
Someone mentioned that Jenn-Air owned Whirlpool. I liked Jenn-Air's Pro style handles. They were pretty.
I decided to totally take over Gerritt's Appliance one afternoon and after making friends with the manager, sweet talked him into letting me try swapping out a few handles to see if they would fit.
To my, and the managers surprise, the pretty Jenn-Air hardware I liked fit beautifully onto the Whirlpool model! For an extra $200, I was getting the fridge I wanted!
Now it was onto my next task:)
