Any kitchen designers/ fridge experts about? Is there such a thing as a double under counter fridge?

I will probably end up getting two fridges.
But what I want in an ideal world is a double width larder fridge that fits under the worktop, not a fridge-freezer as we have a chest freezer in the garage. I don't want a tall fridge, but something wide that would hold as much as a tall larder fridge, but under the counter.
I think this will be an unanswered post as I don't think it exists, but here's trying just in case anyone knows of such a thing!

the only ones I can find are fridge freezers or drinks chiillers like these

found one! double under counter fridge

you need to check though, actually not 100% sure it has 2 doors!

Ooh thanks for looking! Popmum I thought I had it sorted with that baumatic but other sites seem to imply it is actually a fridge freezer

give the company in my link a call - biasco - they are specialists in integrated appliances so may know of another one or can tell you for sure yes or no. The picture does look, on reflection, like a fridge/freezer though....sorry!

I have seen them in a couple stores in the last year (sorry, it's been a bit so I don't remember what ones), so they do exist. Best of luck!

Really Triggles? A sighting!

They do these sort of fridges in the catering industry, they are called larder fridges i think, if you could find a catering equipment hire place i'm sure they would be able to help, they are usually stainless steel so i'm not sure if this would be of any interest?

I've got a sneaking suspicion Ikea might do them...but don't quote me.

I know I saw one in a local store about 8 months ago when we were went to buy our own fridge/freezer, as DH and I actually talked about getting it, but then decided against it. It was one of those home stores that has home furnishings and appliances. I can't think of the name of the store, but I'll ask DH if he remembers or if he can remember where else we've seen them.

we went for two separate under counter fridges (for the same sort of reasons as you) - we have
on larder one and one with an ice box in - but we rarely use the icebox.

Thanks everyone for helping - I've seen the commercial chiller type things but am after a mutant version of the usual domestic fridge. Throckenholt I'm pleased to hear you went for two fridges and that it's not a mad idea! Did you ever actually come across any double ones while you were deciding?

You can buy 2 abd have the doors opening on opposite sides to give the look of one HTH I had a really lovely steel liebherr undercounter fridge where 2 would have looked great
