Keeping It Cool: Liebherr’s 5-Zone Refrigerator

Oenophiles take note: Liebherr's versatile five-zone refrigerator combines a fridge, a freezer, and a wine storage unit in one appliance.

I've always envied kitchens with wine refrigerators, but since I have no kitchen remodel in my immediate future, I've resigned myself to life without that luxury. Then I discovered the Liebherr SBS 246 Series Refrigerator: a 48-inch refrigerator with five cooling zones (freezer, two-zone wine cabinet, and two-zone refrigeration). Better yet, the appliance consists of two 24-inch units that can be installed side-by-side or in two separate areas of the kitchen.

Above: The Liebherr five-zone refrigerators are available with a custom finish (Liebherr SBS 24I6) or in stainless steel (Liebherr SBS 246). The stainless model is priced at $8,640. Refer to the Liebherr Dealer Locator for dealer information.

Above: The refrigerator and freezer drawers and the glass shelves can be adjusted to accommodate oversized items.

Above: The two-zone wine cabinet with glass door features solid, untreated beachwood shelves on telescopic rails.

Above: The Liebherr SBS 246 refrigerator offers scratch resistant GlassLine shelving and transparent drawers.
