Pro 48 from Sub-Zero - A Unique Kitchen Appliance


There are so many copycats in the kitchen appliance business that it's often hard to tell one product from another or recognize one brand from another. But when it comes to the Pro 48 Refrigerator/Freezer from Sub-Zero there is just nothing like it. Nothing else looks like the Pro 48, and nothing performs like it.

First let's review a few of the unique design features of this product. It's probably the most eye-catching refrigerator out there if only for its sheer size. The bold professional look of the refrigerator doesn't seek to hide either. It stands out proudly and screams heavy duty. Large towel bar handles coordinate with Sub-Zero's sister Wolf range brand to give a family appearance. The Pro 48 can be ordered with a glass window in the refrigerator door or with a solid stainless steel refrigerator door. From the sturdy 4″ legs at the bottom to the industrial appearance of the top grill vent, this unit has a top to bottom Professional look that will wow your guests every time they enter the kitchen.

The design team at Sub-Zero didn't stop with looks alone, however. The glass on the door is triple pane and UV resistant. The upper grill flips up for easy access. The Pro 48 refrigerator can be built-in or, with an accessory kit, can be used in a freestanding application. There is an external temperature display with easy to read digital readouts so you don't have to open the unit and let all that cold air out just to check the temperature. The door hinges are precision-built, so that they close automatically.

Equally important to the features you can see are the ones you can't see that make it a Sub-Zero. It comes with Sub-Zero's famous dual refrigeration system with two compressors, and for the Pro 48 unit Sub-Zero has added an exclusive three evaporators to keep food fresher longer. The refrigerator itself has not only a stainless steel exterior, but also a stainless steel interior. Also inside is an advanced microprocessor and touch control panel. There is ceiling lighting in both upper cabinets, and LED side lighting in the refrigerator. Glass shelves are adjustable and spill proof. Slide-out stainless steel bins fit neatly under refrigerator glass shelves. The crisper drawer is touch-and-glide with a tight sealing clear cover. Interior drawer dividers can be used in either refrigerator drawer.

With all these included features it is hard to imagine that there would be any available accessories, but there are a few optional items you might consider. We mentioned the accessory panels for a freestaning application. In addtion, you can order a stainless steel side panel, stainless steel front and side kickplates, slide-out stainless steel refrigerator bins, refrigerator drawer dividers, a replacement water filter, and a 90 degree door stop.

As you might expect the Sub-Zero Pro 48 meets stringent Department of Energy requirements, is UL approved for sale in both the U.S. and Canada, and is Star-K Kosher certified as Sabbath and holiday compliant. Other included features are an automatic icemaker, a water filter, and an outstanding two, five, and 12 year warranty (some exlcusions apply – see warranty for details).
