Never Underestimate the Versatility of an Undercounter Refrigerator


If the words “undercounter refrigerator” still conjure an image of the little unit you had in college, it’s time to learn about Sub-Zero’s Designer Undercounter Refrigeration. Think of it as “anywhere refrigeration,” offering a diverse collection of beautiful, luxurious ways to place a refrigerator, freezer, icemaker or wine storage anywhere in your home or office.

Add comfort and convenience to your master suite. Create a stunning cocktail bar – ice included – in the family room. Place wine storage in your office or study. Design a beverage center in your pantry. Complete your outdoor kitchen with cool drinks and fresh foods ready to serve poolside. Anywhere there’s a counter, Sub-Zero has a luxurious food or beverage preservation option to tuck under it.

Sub-Zero offers an undercounter refrigerator engineered for outdoor use.  

Sub-Zero Undercounter Refrigerators Offer So Much More Than Refrigeration

Select gleaming stainless or a custom panel-ready unit that allows you to make your refrigeration blend into the environment. Sub-Zero now has undercounter solutions in 15″, 24”, 30” and 36” widths that offer refrigerator only, freezer only or a combination (yes, you can really get both in this small space). There’s even a 24”undercounter refrigerator/freezer with an icemaker!

With so many Sub-Zero options, it’s hard to believe a designer would select an undercounter unit as their favorite appliance, but Joe Najmy of NuKitchens shared his choice in a recent interview, “It’s hard to choose just one favorite, but I would say that I really like the Sub-Zero Undercounter Ice Maker.” In fact, the Sub-Zero 15” Ice Maker produces up to 50 pounds of octagonal-shaped ice per day. It comes in sleek stainless steel or in a cabinet panel-ready design so it can disappear into the kitchen, pantry or wet bar landscape to be used only when needed. According to Najmy, who is an avid entertainer in his own home, “The Sub-Zero Ice Maker is great for parties, family gatherings or anywhere you want to share a nice cold drink any time of year.”

 Tuck Sub-Zero Undercounter Wine Storage Into Any Niche

Once you wrap your head around the possibilities of placing refrigeration in any room in your home, you realize that tucking wine storage in a bar, pantry or walk-in closet could be the perfect way to keep a 42-bottle collection at perfect temperature and humidity. In this small space, you can store reds and whites in separate temperature zones within one degree of setpoint. UV-resistant glass shields wine from harmful light and soft-on LED lighting fully illuminates the interior when the door is open. This wine storage unit is also Wi-Fi-enabled to allow remote control of independent zone temperatures and provide important door-ajar notifications all from your mobile device.
