Features and Benefits in Detail
Excellent design flexibility

Sub-Zero's built-in refrigeration models can be outfitted with stainless-steel panels or custom cabinetry panels, and may be installed flush with surrounding cabinetry for a more integrated look. Handle and grille styles are also customizable. For full details on installation and design options, see the Sub-Zero Design Guide.

Air purification system

Many fresh foods emit ethylene gas, a natural compound that hastens spoilage. Sub-Zero's built-in refrigerators come with an anti-microbial air-purification system (based on technology developed by NASA) that scrubs the air of ethylene, as well as mold, viruses and bacteria every 20 minutes.

Bright interior lighting

Evenly distributed interior lighting — powered by specially designed 40-watt appliance bulbs in the refrigerator and freezer — illuminates food on shelves and in storage drawers when unit doors are open.

Spill-proof glass shelves

Framed glass shelves contain small spills, resulting in a cleaner, more inviting interior

Low-temperature/high-humidity storage zones

Crispers and deli drawers are strategically located near the evaporator to maintain temperatures a few degrees cooler than the rest of the unit. Drawers are sealed to lock in humidity and freshness.

Informational freshness cards

Different foods require different storage procedures. That's why, located inside each built-in refrigerator unit, specially designed freshness cards provide easy-to-follow tips for ensuring maximum food preservation.

All-refrigerator storage

Freestanding all-refrigerator models contain an electronic microprocessor that continuously monitors the entire unit to ensure a proper food storage environment. They also come with adjustable glass shelves and storage drawers equipped with dividers.
