Gaggenau Vario refrigerators 400 series –

These built-in appliances ooze sophistication and reach the highest standards for design and functionality.

 

One of the best things about the 400 series is its modularity. There are fridge freezers, separate fridges and freezers, and wine climate cabinets, which can be configured in any way you choose.

 

The appliances have beautiful stainless-steel cladding fronts. Or they can be hidden behind your kitchen furniture for a fully integrated look. Whichever option you choose, you can have a handle or a handless push-to-open door – ideal if you’ve got handless kitchen doors and drawer fronts.

 

The interiors are just as impressive. They’re finished in stainless steel with solid anthracite aluminium elements, highlighted with warm white glare-free LED lights. The drawers in the fridges and freezers are placed at the same height. And the shelves and door racks can be aligned, too – making a side-by-side fridge and freezer installation look sleek and clean.

 

There are plenty of hi-tech features too. Such as cushioned door closing, dynamic cold air distribution, open door and malfunction alarm, a fast-cooling function and more.

Liebherr ICBc 5182 Peak BioFresh Integrated Fridge-Freezer –

Store fresh groceries like the pros and make food last longer with the Liebherr fridge-freezer. This smart appliance has separate BioFresh compartments for different food types, so you can store them in the best conditions for freshness.

 

For example, the HydroBreeze compartment blows a cold mist over fruit and veg every 90 minutes to make it last longer. They’re also kept airtight, and at the ideal temperature so salads stay crunchy and strawberries soft, just as they should be.

 

There are also separate compartments for fish and seafood and meat and dairy. Each with its own optimum temperature setting for freshness.

 

There are a whole host of other high-tech features too. Ambient lighting, soft-closing door and compartment drawers. A PowerCooling system to distribute the cold evenly. SuperSilent operation and a SuperFrost function to keep the freezer temperature constant when you place unfrozen food in it.

 

And all this technology is hidden behind your kitchen doors for a seamless, integrated look.

Siemens StudioLine iQ500 Integrated Fridge-Freezer –

Like the Liebherr fridge-freezer above, this is another integrated appliance packed with high-tech functions for the pros.

 

The hyperFresh function lets you adjust the humidity in the fruit and veg drawer to the optimum level to preserve flavour, vitamins, and nutrients for longer. NoFrost technology prevents frost from forming, so you’ll never need to defrost the freezer again. And for convenience, the glass shelves slide out without tilting when you add or remove food. So, you’ll easily see what food you’ve got and reduce wastage.

 

Other features include an always-secure automatic soft-closing door, a bottle rack, Wi-Fi connectivity to a smartphone app and bigBox storage in the freezer for large items.

Fisher & Paykel Integrated French Door Fridge-Freezer –

If you love American-style fridge freezers but don’t like the gap you need to leave on either side for the doors to open, this product is for you. The doors have been cleverly designed, so there’s no gap needed. Instead, the appliance seamlessly integrates to fit flush with your cabinets, making it ideal for sleek contemporary kitchens.

 

You can fully integrate this fridge-freezer with your kitchen cabinets. Or purchase stainless-steel door panels and handles (shown in the image) separately. A built-in water dispenser is available if you choose the second option.

 

It’s got plenty of high-tech and practical features too. Like ActiveSmart™ technology that maintains the ideal temperature to keep food fresh for longer. Flexible shelving and removable bins for easy storage. And an ice maker in a dedicated freezer bin that can be boosted when you need extra ice or removed to free up space.

Sub-Zero & Wolf Under Counter Refrigerator –

If you’re looking for something slightly different for your kitchen, consider a kitchen under counter fridge. With this model, you can choose stainless-steel door panels, as shown. Or, for an integrated look, have custom panels to match your kitchen door fronts.

 

If an organised kitchen is your thing, this refrigerator delivers. Two large drawers with adjustable and removable dividers allow you to separate different food types, all conveniently illuminated by LED lights.

 

Finally, we can’t forget the technical features. This fridge has smart-touch technology that lets you control the temperature from 1° to 7° to keep food fresh for longer. The drawers are also soft closing for smooth operation.
