Ikea fridges range from 27" to 32" depth.

Search for "counter depth refrigerators". I should note that counter depth fridges only really come in french door or side-by side door designs. Top or bottom mount fridges with counter depth are really rare. I've only seen 1 or 2.

I read the May is the month you want to buy a fridge as May is when all the new models come in (which is separate from other appliances), but I haven't seen a single sale so far. :(

If its not an outside wall, consider removing studs behind refrigerator to give you an extra 4" depth. Cheaper than as special fridge and more fridge volume possible. I have done it.

DavidWatson - We have space restrictions - particularly re height. The only stainless steel fridge we were able to find is the Frigidaire - smudge proof stainless steel (and we needed stainless steel). It is an 18 cubic feet unit - 29 5/8 wide, 26 5/8 deep and 65 3/8 high (which is how high we were able to go to leave the minimum required room for air flow). I do realize that the width is 5/8 deeper than you posted. We have cupboards above the unit which we cannot cut. Originally a company was supposed to make a shorter unit to accommodate those in our situation but instead cupboards were made shorter to no doubt make people replace their cupboards!

The list price is $1,349.00.

By the way, if you have issues the entry level Miele Dishwasher also requires a little less space than 24 inches - which we did not have. We had a repairman from our previous Dishwasher company out here and he agreed that there was no way that a 24 inch unit would fit. It has been 2 years but the entry level Miele just slid in - we had it installed.

We did have the kitchen professionally installed 18 years ago - but factors such as the fridge, dishwasher (next will be the oven/cooktop - the depth will be a major issue and one we cannot overcome) were not considered by the designer - little did we know - but now we do.

Could try GE. Have one such (fridge only) unit in our house (inherited ~ 15(?) y.o. model). single door, 33" width and low height. Sorely tempted to replace with a full depth even if it will stick out an additonal 6". Counter-depth fridges are major PITA. 33" is also a width that limits your options.
