The term counter-depth though widely used amongst retailers, can be misleading because the actual measurement can vary somewhat from the standard counter depth of 25". Especially in a large kitchen, it's not unusual to find bottom cabinets that are much deeper than the standard 24" depth and the counter will protrude further, usually by an inch.

So counter-depth can be deeper than the average, ranging from 25" to 30". Hence the importance of taking careful, precise measurements of the allowable space, when shopping for appliances. Do not assume that all counter-depth refrigerators are the same size; they can vary in depth by several inches.

When it comes to compact, under-counter refrigerators, coolers and freezers, these are usually cabinet-depth and though these can vary from the standard, most will be 24" so that they will be flush with the cabinetry once installed, much the same as a built-in dishwasher.

And since most freestanding wine coolers are counter-depth, that leaves a counter-depth versus standard depth decision mostly applicable to freestanding refrigerators, freezers and beverage coolers.

Most upright freezers are standard depth, but freezers that are designed to be custom installed as a companion to a refrigerator are often counter depth for a more integrated style. Since pros and cons will be similar for these appliances, this article will focus more on refrigerators.

Is a counter-depth refrigerator best for you? The idea when choosing a counter-depth refrigerator, is to have a more streamlined look - that in itself is very pleasing to the eye. This design style is available with all types of refrigerators - all refrigerator, bottom or top freezer, side-by-side and French door models.

Though the counter-depth design is a very popular choice and since this is a long term appliance investment, you'll want to consider the benefits as well as the constraints, to this refrigerator model. Also note that the door of a counter-depth fridge will protrude slightly from the edge of the counter and the same goes for the handle, so depth may not include these in the measurements.
