Product Details

Sub-Zero 42 Inch Built-In Refrigerator with French Doors - BI-42UFD/S/TH

Enjoy the sophisticated look of a built-in counter-depth fridge without sacrificing storage capacity by upgrading to the BI-42UFD/S by Sub-Zero. With 25 cubic feet of storage capacity, this 42 inch built-in refrigerator offers more space for your groceries than any other counter-depth French door models. Ready to be mounted flush with the surrounding cabinets, the fridge blends into its surroundings perfectly. Custom cabinetry panels allow the BI-42UFD/S Sub-Zero 42" refrigerator to disappear completely. Or, if you'd prefer to highlight the stylish wide bodied fridge, stainless steel panels provide a timeless look that match almost any kitchen design. Inside this 42 inch built-in refrigerator, specially designed 40w bulbs evenly distribute light throughout its fresh and frozen sections, showing off the efficient design of the interior.

The generous storage capacity and gorgeous appearance of the BI-42UFD/S Sub-Zero 42" refrigerator are matched by an impressive number of features used to keep your food and drinks fresh longer. Separate cooling systems manage the fresh and frozen sections of the fridge, preventing air from traveling between the two. This design allows the 42 inch built-in refrigerator to fight freezer burn by keeping the humidity levels low in the frozen section while moist, cool air keeps fresh food fresh longer. To extend the life of your these foods even longer, the produce crispers and deli drawer are located near the evaporator of this 42" refrigerator, providing them with slightly cooler temperatures than the rest of the fridge. Furthermore, an anti-microbial air-purification system removes airborne contaminants from the BI-42UFD/S by Sub-Zero, using technology originally designed by NASA. Mold, viruses, bacteria, and ethylene gas, which accelerates over-ripening, are all filtered from the air inside this 42 inch built-in refrigerator every 20 minutes. By extending the same level of attention to its water filter, the fridge restricts chemical pollutants such as chlorine from contaminating its ice, requiring a new filter only once a year. Let the BI-42UFD/S Sub-Zero 42" refrigerator keep your food fresh longer while it blends into your existing kitchen aesthetic.


  • Dual refrigeration
    Each built-in combination unit comes with separate cooling systems for the refrigerator and freezer. Fresh food stays fresher in cool, moist air on one side, while frigid, dry air prevents frost and freezer burn on the other — providing optimum preservation conditions for each type of food.
  • Maximum capacity in a 42" built-in French door model
    For those moments when storage space is at a premium, the Sub-Zero 42" over-and-under with French door provides nearly 25 cubic feet of combined refrigerator and freezer capacity. That's more usable space than any built-in French door model, with a refrigerator that's 12% roomier than a Sub-Zero 42" side-by-side model, too.
  • Excellent design flexibility
    Sub-Zero's built-in refrigeration models can be outfitted with stainless-steel panels or custom cabinetry panels, and may be installed flush with surrounding cabinetry for a more integrated look. Handle and grille styles are also customizable.
  • Air purification system
    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.
  • Water filtration system
    This low-maintenance system reduces suspended particles and chemical pollutants and filters out chlorine taste and odors in water used for ice production. The filter lasts for 1 year or 750 gallons, and replacement is fast and easy.
  • Bright interior lighting
    Evenly distributed interior lighting — powered by specially designed 40-watt appliance bulbs in the refrigerator and freezer — illuminates food on shelves and in storage drawers when unit doors are open.
  • 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 freshness.
  • Informational freshness cards
    Different foods require different storage procedures. That's why, located inside each built-in refrigerator unit, specially designed freshness cards provide easy-to-follow tips for ensuring maximum food preservation.
  • Ice making features
    An automatic icemaker provides crescent-shaped ice cubes and includes a "max ice" feature capable of increasing purified ice production by up to 40 percent for a 24-hour period.
  • Six adjustable refrigerator shelves
    The 42" over-and-under with French door is the only Sub-Zero with refrigerator shelving that is split into two columns for maxium flexibility. Line up two half-shelves to form a full-width shelf, or stagger their positions to customize storage for tall or short items.
  • Nano-coated spill-proof shelving
    A microthin layer of coating applied to the sides of each modular shelf prevents spills from spreading — making cleanup a breeze.
  • Full-width deli compartment
    A soft-close deli drawer that spans the width of the refrigerator's interior provides ample room for packages and trays of meats, cheeses and more. Plastic dividers can be arranged for extra organization, or removed altogether.
