Excerpt: I recently purchased the Electrolux and it's "Awesome!" Aside from the crisper door needing repair the refrigerator is perfect. The convenience of the ice/water dispenser is like living in luxury, no need to hassle with ice cube trays, the shelves slide out and everything is easily accessible, "how genius," not to mention the controlled temperature within certain parts of the frig. It's perfection in the kitchen, absolute, awesome, perfection!
Excerpt: Happy with counterdepth side by side except the ice dispenser had to be replaced after 3 mos of use. There was a technician bulletin for the electronic control panel. Also there was an led light in the fridge that never worked since setup, only to find there is a short in that wiring the technician told us can't be fixed. Haven't spoke to Electrolux on this yet. I do really like the fridge, just wish the bugs were worked out.
Excerpt: Well, I was in the market for a refrigerator that would work in my galley-style kitchen. After remodeling, I realized that the current fridge I had was too deep and stuck far out beyond the cabinets. After looking for several months at super expensive units that would fit in the space the way I wanted, and learning that there are multiple variations of "counter-depth" I found this refrigerator. It was an open-box unit, but not used.
Excerpt: Our previous refrigerator had constant ice maker problems and the freezer drawer felt like it was never closed all the way and I felt like food got lost in there. With this frig we haven't had any problems. I can actually see what's in the freezer and we never run out of ice. Would like more bins on the door on the refrigerator side towards the bottom even if it meant that the drawers were cut back - otherwise it is designed wonderfully for a counter depth.
Not a standout counter-depth, even among slim pickings

Conclusion: Since they're niche products, counter-depth fridges tend to be more expensive than their standard-depth brethren. At just over $2,000 on sale, the EI23CS35KS is one of the lower-priced models available. Still, we'd want to be fully aware of this fridge's flaws before making a purchase.
Excerpt: Many problems with cheap plastic clips that hold drawers onto sliding rails. Every time the drawer is closed the clip detaches and the drawer comes off the track. Very cumbersome to remove the drawers for cleaning. They took a simple design and over-complicated it and made frustrating to operate. Also..it is ridiculous that a 1/3 of the refrigerator door is dedicated to soda can storage.
Excerpt: I feel like the serviceman will be a regular visitor to my house. The fridge is attractive, but I have had multiple service calls to try to fix the icemaker. Also, one of the drawers repeatedly comes undone because of the cheap plastic clip that holds it to the sliding rail. The water dispenser tube is located too far forward so that using a narrow glass means you may have water missing the glass.
