We are in the beginning stages of planning the refit
of the galley
. One of the things I hate about the galley
is our refrigeration
. We currently have a plate style (which gave up the ghost) in the reefer box. I want something more accessible, even if its a bit smaller as I have a really hard time climbing up on the counter, wedging myself through the tiny lid and rummaging into the 3 foot depths. I'd like to use the current
way in the back reefer box for shelf stable storage
and put in a more accessible drawer refrigerator
Ideally, I'd like a drawer style refrigerator
. I know I am giving up a bit of storage
space in exchange for accessibility. This is not a problem. What is a problem is that there aren't a whole lot of drawer style options out there. I'm keen to use a drawer style so we don't have all the cold air tumbling out when we open the door.
I'm interested to know if anyone has installed either the Waeco/AdlerBarbour Drawer Ref. (we'd install 2) or the Vitrigo Double Drawer? How difficult was the installation
? How well are they operating for you? How much heat are they throwing off? How well are they maintaining their temperatures? Actual power usage vs. what is claimed Etc.
Really looking forward to hearing experiences as we try to decide if this upgrade is worth the hassle and expense. The Vitrigo is almost $1000 more than 2 of the Waeco units and I'm trying to decide if the extra little bit of space you get with the Vitrigo and power savings is worth it or if I'm just paying extra for the shiny bits.
