Perlick is a company is mainly known for its commercial refrigeration. Its products can be found in almost every upscale bar and probably over half the stadiums in America. They aren’t known for making pretty fridges – they are known for making ones that simply work and work well. A few years back they decided to enter the residential under-counter refrigeration market, and while their products may not be the flashiest in their class – they are some of the most well-built machines out there.
They offer over 4 different sizes and countless configurations. They offer 15″, 24″, 48″, and 72″ units, all with stainless steel interiors and hidden evaporators. Of note, they offer two units that I haven’t seen elsewhere: 15″ wide refrigerator drawers and a full size freezer with a martini rail.
The Perlick HP24BS is their 24″ beverage center. This unit features an electronic display, two heavy duty wine roll-outs, and one regular roll-out shelf. They are fully adjustable and more can be added after the fact. The units are fully integrated (meaning they don’t stick out past the surrounding cabinetry) with zero-clearance hinges. The Perlick Beverage Center is also the only unit on the market to feature a convertible door design, allowing it to be changed from stainless steel to wood overlay at any time.
The Perlick HP24BS also comes with an excellent warranty. 2 years on the complete unit, 4 on the sealed refrigeration system. Overall, an excellent unit, and while the price is a bit high, (around $2,800 USD) we still believe it is fair. It easily competes in quality with the Viking’s and the Sub-Zero’s. It only lacks charisma.
Pros: Very well-built, stainless steel interior, american-made, true commercial quality for the home.
Cons: A lot of exposed screws around the door, price is high for a relatively new brand.
