It was bound to happen. For years the trend in appliances has been the high-tech look. Everything sleeker and more polished in the pursuit of the perfect 21st century kitchen. And now, the backlash. Big Chill Fridge of Boulder, Colorado, bucks the trend by manufacturing the distinctive 50's style retro refrigerators you remember seeing at grandma's house. Don't be fooled by the vintage look, though—these fridges are thoroughly modern with all of the functionality and dependability of modern models. They are made in America and come in a range of colors. The fridge retails for $2700 at most appliance dealers and can be ordered directly from the manufacturer at 877.842.3269. They also offer a line of vintage-style ovens that retail for between $3695 and $3995.
I am so glad to see industry in America, however, I think this refrigerator may have an extremely limited market appeal. Not everyone wants to go back in time. It also looks huge! Kitchen space is frequently sacrificed for space in other rooms in the house.
