Sub-Zero ICBBI42SD/S/TH Integrated Side by Side Fridge Freezer, Stainless Steel

Product information

Please note: This product is not available in our shops for viewing.

With its solid stainless steel doors, tubular handles and unmistakable louvered grill, the Sub-Zero ICBBI42SD/S/TH is a show-stopping side-by-side refrigeration centrepiece produced for the most demanding of kitchens. Featuring an ice and water dispenser through the refrigerator door, this built-in fridge freezer also boasts a cavernous 683L interior that allows you to store all your fresh and frozen food in a single unit, with a place for everything, and everything in its place. Sub-Zero’s dual refrigeration system keeps fresh food fresher and preserves frozen food for longer, minimising waste and maximising flavour.

Incorporating technology developed by NASA, Sub-Zero’s microbiological air purification system refreshes and ‘scrubs’ the air in the fridge section every 20 minutes, removing any bacteria, mould and viruses in the process. It’s so efficient, it even removes food odours and the ethylene gas naturally emitted by some foods (such as apples) that causes over-ripening and hastens spoilage and waste.

The unique high humidity, low temperature zone remains two degrees cooler than the air elsewhere - effectively a fridge within a fridge. It creates the perfect conditions for storage of certain foods, particularly helping salad and vegetables stay fresher and crisper for longer. Two additional drawers are on hand, as well as 5 door shelves, 3 of which are adjustable.

The adjustable cantilever glass shelves (there are 3 plus 1 fixed shelf) have a protective rim that prevents leaks and spills saturating the whole refrigerator, keeping cleaning to a minimum.

In the freezer section, there are 3 roll-out drawers, 2 adjustable wire shelves and 5 adjustable door shelves. And let’s not forget the ice maker - an integral water filtration system even removes suspended particles, chemical pollutants, viruses and bacteria from the ice. The ice maker makes between 2.2 and 3.2kg of ice a day, and there’s an option to increase production to maximum for a 24-hour period - useful if you wish to stockpile cubes in advance of a social gathering.

There’s bright interior lighting throughout, including the storage drawer area, and operating your Sub-Zero fridge freezer is a breeze thanks to the illuminated touch control panel.

Rated A for energy, the ICBBI42SD/S/TH’s heavy gauge steel doors are magnetically sealed to keep the cold air in and the warm air out. Microprocessors keep the temperature within one degree of its thermostat setting. In fact, the system is so smart, it even adjusts the defrost cycle to match your usage patterns.

Finish also available in flush fit.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Status Symbol The ICBBI42SD/S/TH is the ultimate status symbol for your kitchen. It has some great features. The dual refrigeration system maintains optimal conditions by using a separate compressor for both fridge and freezer. There is no transference of air between the two cavities which means moisture or aromas will not pass between them. As mentioned in the main product description, the air purification system is based on NASA technology, there are not many appliances available that can boast about that. It has a whopping 453 litre capacity in the fridge and 230 litre capacity in the freezer. Sub-Zero are an American based, family run company with 60 years of experience under their belts and they certainly know a thing or two about refrigeration. 18 September 2011
