The GE model fits, but what are my other options? Subzero?
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

Any 42" model will fit, they come with trim kits. Is there a brand you are partial to, Subzero?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
we like the Subzero with the "window" door
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

The 42" does not come with a window option, only the 30" & 36" models, see link below.

There is a 48" window model but it would be too big, see below.

What are your thoughts on ELECTROLUX?
Expert:  Kelly replied 4 months ago.

I would stay away from Electrolux. If I had to choose, it would be a Kitchen Aid or a Sub Z. Viking is just a Kitchen Aid branded Viking.

Thanks Kelly -- I might as well spend the extra grand and get the SubZ......Thanks for your help!

I would agree, you can't get any nicer! And it is a long time to live with something you don't absolutely love!
