    Very good. Prompt. Efficient Accommodating. Perfect installation. Everything worked fine when they left. Recommend they turn on the water and the ice maker before they leave to be sure they are operating properly. Had to figure out to turn them on myself.

        Comments about Sub-Zero 48" Built-In Side-By-Side Classic Stainless Steel Refrigerator:

        This is the third Subzero purchase I have made. This one is quieter and the interior has many improvements. There is a chime to notify you if you have left the door open by mistake (or a child did). It now has an interior filter which is changed every 6 months. The best improvement I believe was the grill above the unit lifts open now for cleaning. No more struggling trying to get the spring to let go while you hurt your neck! It is an expensive product but the only one I have purchased over the years.

          Love the purified water chiller inside the refrigerator. Happy we did not get the outside dispenser which reduces two door shelves by 6 inches each.
          Easy to organize and keep food feasible with the see through drawers.

              This unit replaced a 22 year old 532 series that needed repairs on the refrigerator section. The four man delivery / installation team (led by Bart)was very professional. They took all the necessary steps to protect the front stoop and all of the quarry tile flooring. We couldn't be more pleased with the entire process.

              Comments about Sub-Zero 48" Built-In Side-By-Side Classic Stainless Steel Refrigerator:

              This was a replacement for a 19yr old SZ 48". While people do complain the repair costs are expensive for SZ it's no different than owning a BMW/Mercedes. Repair costs are in-line with the price of the item. I have been overall impressed with the build quality, customer service, and freshness of the items kept within. Further, the new model SZ has the industry best water filtration and air purification.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Service was on-time. They resolved an issue with the water line as well; length of the line was too short. The SZ water unit did not turn on promptly; SZ was willing to come out and review the system that day to ensure everything was working fine. We later learned the unit needs to have a live water supply for 45min before it will start dispensing.

                Bought the side by side stainless steel doors and love the contemporary look to our beautiful kitchen. The temperature in refrigerator is consistent and the freezer is a hard freeze. I love the see through drawers on both sides and now I can see everything. The glass shelving is easy for cleaning and the door has a lot of storage shelves . It is so quiet that you do not think it is on. We have the model with the ice and water dispenser inside the refrigerator side. It is easy to use. I love this new addition to our kitchen.
