Product Details

Sub-Zero 48" Stainless Steel Built-In Side-By-Side Refrigerator - BI-48S/S/PH

Side-by-side Model BI-48S provides the highest refrigerator and freezer capacity in a single Built-In unit. Sub-Zero dual refrigeration along with new air purification and water filtration systems guard the freshness of your food and water like nothing before. Framed, overlay/flush inset and stainless steel models are available. A new flush inset installation option allows the unit to sit flush with surrounding cabinetry.

Key Features:

  • Air purification system
  • Water filtration system
  • Dual refrigeration system
  • Professional series handles
  • Flip-up grille for easy access to condenser
  • Evenly-distributed bright interior lighting
  • Door shelves are adjustable in one-inch increments
  • Crisper and deli drawers form a special low-temperature zone
  • Informational freshness cards inside unit
  • Max ice feature to increase rate of ice production for a 24-hour period
  • Exceeds tough Department of Energy standards

Features:

  • NEW! LED LIGHTING FOR BRIGHTER INTERIOR
    See all your fresh foods more clearly and easily. LED lighting is also more energy-efficient – designed to last the life of your refrigerator.
  • AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEM FIGHTS SPOILAGE, ODORS
    Many fresh foods emit ethylene gas, a natural compound that hastens spoilage. Sub-Zero's built-in refrigerators come with an anti-microbial air purification system (based on technology developed by NASA) that scrubs the air of ethylene, as well as mold, viruses and bacteria, every 20 minutes.
  • MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL GUARANTEES PEAK PERFORMANCE
    The state-of-the-art microprocessor preserves your food by adjusting to your individual climate and schedule. It continuously monitors each section of your Sub-Zero for pinpoint climate control, so foods are kept at their ideal temperature, varying by only one degree of your set point. Also lets you finesse your lighting and cooling fan, tells you if your door is ajar, and defrosts when it's most convenient for you.
  • HELPFUL FRESHNESS CARDS
    Different foods require different storage procedures. That's why, inside each refrigerator, you'll find "freshness cards" that provide easy-to-follow tips for ensuring maximum food preservation.
  • EXCEPTIONAL 24/7 CUSTOMER SUPPORT
    Whether you're shopping for appliances or have questions about those you already own, the Sub-Zero and Wolf Customer Care team has a reputation for service that's as exceptional as its products. They're based in Madison, Wisconsin, just footsteps from the factory, and are standing by to provide expert, friendly, problem-solving support.
  • AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER WITH "MAX ICE" FEATURE
    Provides crescent-shaped ice cubes and includes a "max ice" feature capable of increasing ice production by an average of 30 percent for a 24-hour period – just the boost you need for parties and holidays.
  • DUAL REFRIGERATION KEEPS FOOD FRESHER
    This technology pioneered by Sub-Zero features two separate cooling systems. Fresh food stays fresher in the cool, moist air of the refrigerator, while frigid, dry air prevents frost and freezer burn in the freezer – optimum preservation conditions for each type of food.
  • LOW-TEMPERATURE/HIGH-HUMIDITY STORAGE ZONES
    Crispers and deli drawers are strategically located near the evaporator to maintain temperatures a few degrees cooler than the rest of the unit. Drawers are sealed to lock in humidity and ensure freshness.
  • WATER-FILTRATION SYSTEM
    Designed to reduce contaminants and chlorine taste and odors when filtering water for ice, this low-maintenance system uses a filter built to last 1 year or 750 gallons. Replacement is fast and easy.
  • RIGOROUSLY TESTED TO ENSURE DEPENDABILITY
    Every component of every single Sub-Zero unit is tested in its U.S. manufacturing facilities before assembly, then every completed product is factory-tested for up to 24 hours before shipping. In its labs, components are subjected to electric jolts, violent vibrations and 350⁰ temperature swings, and tested to stand up to at least 20 years of heavy use.
  • MAGNETIC DOOR SEAL SYSTEM LOCKS IN COLD AIR
    One-piece construction, extra-heavy insulation and magnetic gaskets around every door lock in cold air. Seals are so secure that even after power outages of multiple days, owners report no thawing of their frozen foods!
  • ADJUSTABLE SHELVES FOR MAXIMUM CONVENIENCE
    Food comes in all shapes and sizes, and the interior design of Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezers accommodates that diversity. Main shelves, door shelves, even dividers in drawers adjust to allow the most convenient configuration possible.
