Stock Up and Store Food in a 48-Inch Sub-Zero Refrigerator

When you have a large kitchen and plenty of people coming in and out of it, it's a good idea to always have food ready to serve. Having everything nicely organized can make it easy for everyone to find what they are looking for. The new and used 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerators available on eBay have ample storage space in addition to other helpful built-in features.

What are the choices in terms of layout?

A refrigerator that measures 48 inches across is quite wide. Most of these have the side-by-side layout, with freezers on the left-hand side and refrigerators on the right-hand side. Some models, like the PRO 48 with Glass Door fridge, have more than just two sections. On the left-hand side, there is a door that opens to a freezer along with two smaller freezer compartments below. On the right-hand side, there is a glass door that lets you see inside the cooler as well as two fridge drawers located below.

What are some features that help preserve food?

You may be able to find appliances with built-in:

  • Air purification systems: When your air is purified, odors, airborne particles, and ethylene gas that some foods emit can be removed from the interior environment.
  • Crispers and deli drawers: Individual drawers can be tightly controlled in terms of temperature and humidity. This is important for proper refrigeration because vegetables may last longer in higher humidity, fruits may stay fresher in low humidity, and meats can stay fresher in low temperatures.
  • Water filtration systems: Running your water through filtration before you drink it can potentially improve taste and remove odor. These benefits can also be seen with your ice maker.
  • Dual refrigeration systems: With dual refrigeration, your fridge and freezer will be run by different coolers. This allows each section to better maintain its own temperature and humidity.
What are other ways in which these fridges are user-friendly?

Consider getting a model with built-in LED interior lighting on the ceiling and sides so that you can clearly see no matter what time of day or night it is. You might also benefit from having easy-slide bins and flexible shelving so that you can accommodate large items.
