The Disappearing Refrigerator

Sub-Zero Integrated Refrigerators and Freezers


Integrated Refrigeration

Let’s begin by setting the record straight on built-in refrigerators with cabinet panels, versus fully integrated refrigerators with cabinet panels that are flush with adjacent cabinets. The Sub-Zero brand pioneered built-in refrigerators decades ago, and continues to be a leader in this appliance category.

They have long had cabinet panel options for their refrigerators, but not what we now call “fully-integrated”. In fact, Sub-Zero typically exposed their trademark grills on top of the refrigerator where the compressor compartment was located. They still make these refrigerators, and they are very popular. However, today’s fully-integrated refrigerators with custom flush-fitting matching cabinet panels, are indistinguishable from the adjacent cabinets. They’re often referred to as invisible or disappearing refrigerators.

A few years ago, Sub-Zero Wolf embarked on a major re-design of their entire appliance offering. This update included a complete launch of integrated refrigerators, freezers, and wine storage units, accompanied by undercounter refrigerator and freezer drawers, as well as undercounter beverage and wine storage units.

Pair it with its partner, the Sub-Zero Integrated 24” All Freezer Column, and you’ll have flavorful food on hand no matter how large your family or how often you entertain.

Rest assured it will stay fresher longer, thanks to the IC-24R’s advanced food preservation features. NASA-inspired air purification scrubs the air of ethylene gas that hastens food spoilage, and also reduces odors by removing bacteria, mold and viruses. A magnetic door seal system locks in cold, while a state-of-the-art micro-processor precisely controls temperatures. Crisper and deli drawers form a lower-temperature zone ideal for produce and meat. As with all our integrated models, it can be fitted with stainless steel panels or custom cabinetry panels to virtually disappear into your décor.
