Counter depth fridge that can be installed w/o gaps

OaklandGal | Dec 1, 201912:43 PM     13

I am researching counter depth stainless side by side (not French doors) refrigerators for a friend who’s house burned down in the California fires last year. She wants the look of built in but prefers to splurge on the gas range, rather than over priced fridge. I’m trying to figure out which side/side models might have the right hinges so the fridge can be wrapped in cabinetry without those annoying gaps that ALWAYS seem to happen come installation time, even though the marketing photos show the fridge looking snug and tight in every pic. I under the fridge will stick out from the door on, but the ugly plastic sides will be completely hidden in cabinetry.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I’ve noticed a few kitchenaids look like they might do the trick but it’s so hard to sort through all the ads disguised as reviews these days. I miss google before all the ads took over, circa 2002. Thank you in advance and keep in mind, she wants side by side, not French doors.
