Company’s high-end refrigeration products continue with the Model 601RG

Madison, WI (February 8, 2002) — No longer will consumers have to stand in front of an open refrigerator door letting cool air out, trying to decide what to prepare. Sub-Zero Freezer Company, the leading manufacturer of residential refrigeration and wine storage units known for its forefront product design, today unveiled its Model 601RG, a custom refrigerator with a commercial-looking glass door that lets owners see inside.

For those who keep less-than-neat refrigerator shelves, the Sub-Zero glass door offers a variety of interior lighting options to complement the kitchen. The glass door Sub-Zero affirms the company’s commitment to developing innovative products to meet the changing needs of cooks.

"The glass door refrigerator is an advance in both design and technology," said Jim Bakke, president and chief executive officer for Sub-Zero and Wolf. "Our products are for passionate cooks, and we believe that, for passionate cooks, food is art. With the glass door, we’re showcasing art in the 21st-century kitchen."

The contemporary glass door design is scheduled to hit retail showrooms during second quarter 2002 and offers 19.9 cubic feet of storage—more interior space to compensate for no on-door shelving. The subdued interior light can be set to glow softly with the door shut, adding a warm effect to a kitchen. When the door is opened, the interior light switches to full illumination. The unit will be equipped with the standard features of Sub-Zero’s 600 Series, including the Stainless Steel finish and additional options of overlay or framed. The 600 Series also provides homeowners with exceptional food preservation. Electronic controls offer more accurate, precise temperature adjustment, maintaining the temperature to plus or minus one degree of the homeowner’s choice. An adaptive defrost helps save energy by continuously adapting to usage patterns and climate needs. Dual refrigeration provides for two separate, self-controlled cooling systems. Built by hand with the Sub-Zero refrigeration system at its heart, the 601RG unit meets stringent energy requirements and uses less energy than a 60-watt light bulb.
