The Lengthy-Awaited Wolf Subzero Fridge and Freezer Are In!

After a protracted 15 months, all the subzero wolf kitchen home equipment we ordered are lastly in place! The ready sport has been painful, and I’m not able to say it was value it… But it surely’s good to lastly have the kitchen we dreamed of.

In anticipation of a full kitchen reveal coming quickly, immediately is all in regards to the freezer and fridge we’ve been anxiously ready for. As a result of Chris is all the time cooking up a storm, having each a full-sized freezer and fridge on both aspect of the vary was a key component within the kitchen design. Stoffer deliberate for each to be cupboard paneled, together with the dishwashers and fridge drawers, and each piece was measured and ordered accordingly. For this reason we couldn’t simply pivot and order new home equipment with delay after delay. This kitchen was made with Subzero Wolf home equipment in thoughts, and the one selection we had was to follow some endurance and sit tight.

We knew it could be months out earlier than they’d arrive, however had we identified they’d get delayed previous a yr… we might have chosen different home equipment with extra promising lead occasions. Simply one of many many issues that may derail a renovation.

As good as it’s to have our new home equipment all in place, maybe the most important aid is lastly shifting out the massive eye-sore fridge/freezer that’s been blocking all of the pure window mild since December 2021!

You may see it lurking within the background of this pic, nevertheless it’s formally gone! The second the brand new house owners hauled it away, I audibly gasped in any respect the newfound mild within the kitchen.

Okay, okay, let’s get into the main points!

Cupboard Colour & {Hardware}

The Cupboard colour is Stoffer Home Cabinetry Bromley Taupe, as is the remainder of the kitchen. They actually outdid themselves with these attractive panels (I’ll get into it extra beneath). The cabinet pulls (additionally from Stoffer) on these infants are freaking substantial. Not solely are they gorgeous, however they’re an ideal dimension for gripping and pulling open such a large-scale door.

Subzero Wolf 36-in Panel-Prepared Fridge & Freezer

We went with the 36-in wide panel-ready classic refrigerator and freezer. Initially when the freezer first arrived a few months in the past, I used to be freaking out! The freezer was loads shorter than the build-out area for it, and I assumed, “Oh no! We ordered the unsuitable one.” Seems Jean Stoffer is a genius and designed the panel to be taller than the precise freezer and fridge. The home equipment are 84-in tall, and the entrance panels lengthen to 95-in. The dimensions of our 10-ft ceilings would have made the fridge and freezer look tremendous brief and squatty, however with the taller panels, the kitchen is elongated. It’s an phantasm and a chunk of artwork. Jean actually is aware of what she’s doing.

*A 6-ft Julia for scale.

I did get some questions asking why we wouldn’t use that open area for storage. We’re not likely brief on storage on this kitchen! I’m advantageous with the empty area remaining unused.

Regardless of the lengthy wait, we’re actually happy with the fridge freezer! They each mild up brilliantly, so you’ll be able to see completely all the pieces you’ve readily available, even with the 24-in depth.

The freezer has:

  • 4 cabinets (3 adjustable, 1 stationary)
  • 3 storage drawers
  • 5 adjustable door storage bins

After all, it’s additionally outfitted with an computerized ice maker, however we even have the pebble ice maker over by the drink station.

The fridge has:

  • 5 cabinets (4 adjustable, 1 stationary)
  • 4 crisper drawers with detachable dividers
  • 5 door bins (3 adjustable, 2 stationary)
  • an air purification system!

After all, the weekend it arrived, Chris and I spent a while organizing all the contents. We took to the container retailer to get a bunch of clear containers to retailer all of the produce and meals in!

Organizing The Fridge

Rubbermaid Containers | Lazy Susan | Containers | Produce Bin | Drawers | Egg Holder | Produce Keepers

Chris cooks with largely contemporary substances, so the fridge largely shops contemporary herbs, produce, and meats. Oh, and plenty of condiments and sauces! Right here’s how we organized all the pieces from prime to backside, left to proper.

Up on the highest shelf, we hold leftovers saved in our Rubbermaid containers and a turn table of jarred issues like pickles. We’re huge pickle lovers.

Then we’ve received containers of herbs, ginger, lemongrass, and tiny peppers. Simply any sort of taste components that Chris makes use of whereas cooking.

On the subsequent shelf, now we have much more produce! Recent limes and lemons, berry baskets, carrots, and celery.

Then there are containers of prepped fruits and veggies prepared for snacking; mini cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, grapes, mango, and pineapple! We discovered these egg trays on Amazon, excellent for stacking. My favourite half is that they roll ahead while you seize one from the entrance.

The deli drawer holds cheeses, yogurts, and naturally, deli meats.

The crisper drawer has three of those detachable dividers that got here with the fridge. In a single, now we have apples, and the opposite two retailer leafy greens like lettuce, spinach, and cabbage.

Final however not least, the underside drawer has the identical detachable dividers, and in it, we hold all of our meats plus a bin of bread since we don’t eat very a lot bread.

Oh, and the doorways maintain Chris’s favourite sauces, condiments, butter, and many others.

The rationale we don’t hold milk saved within the fridge is due to these fridge drawers now we have over by the beverage station. Every little thing that we use to make smoothies like milk, nut milk, coconut water, and juice, is stored right here.

Each time I stroll previous, I can’t assist however open up the fridge, and never as a result of I’m on the lookout for one thing to eat, however as a result of it’s like sweet to my eyes. Now I understand how Taylor Swift felt dancing within the fridge mild.

After all, it didn’t take me lengthy in any respect to fill the area the place the fridge was…
