Appliance pulls (also called Refrigerator Handles, Sub Zero Pulls or Oversize Handles) have become more popular as kitchens and kitchen cabinets have become larger. The recognizes style leader in this style of cabinet hardware is Hickory Hardware Belwith. Appliance pulls are not only installed on your refrigerator but are also often used on dishwasher panels, for large pantry doors or on that large pots and pan drawer. Appliance pulls look particularly good on larger cabinet drawers and doors.
Appliance pulls are often sold as part of a family of cabinet hardware for an entire kichen. This allows you to have a complete and continuous design in your entire kitchen. For example, the American Diner family has a complete suite of cabinet knobs (1" and 1-3/8"), handles (3", 96 mm and 128mm) and the matching appliance pulls (8", 12" and 18"). This is also true of the Hickory Hardware Savoy family, the Williamsburg family of designs and Hickory’s Studio Collection.
Appliance pulls are installed in the same manner as cabinet knobs and pulls. An 8-32 (or larger) machine screw in inserted through a hole in the refrigerator panel or cabinet drawer and is simply tightened up with a washer. Just make sure you measure twice and drill only once. And remember, the key dimension is the distance between the screw holes, not the overall length of the appliance pull.
