European Counter-Depth Bottom-Freeer
SUMMIT's collection of frost-free refrigerator-freezers provides an attractive and user-friendly answer to small kitchen spaces.

Made for us in Europe, the FFBF181SSIM is a bottom freezer refrigerator with a unique 24" footprint and generous 12.5 cu. ft. capacity. It comes in a platinum cabinet finish with user-reversible stainless steel doors and designer handles. Separate digital thermostats for the refrigerator and freezer section are conveniently located at the top of the refrigerator, with a digital temperature readout for easy monitoring. A child lock feature allows you to protect the appliance from accidental setting changes. This unit is equipped with handy warning alarms for open door, high temperature, and power failure.

Inside, the FFBF181SSIM features a fully frost-free freezer compartment and an automatic defrost refrigerator section. Spill-proof glass shelves offer flexible storage with easy cleaning convenience. They include a scalloped wine rack ideal for keeping bottles in place. Multiple door racks and a large crisper drawer offer additional storage options. An intensive cooling option allows you to quickly cool items, an ideal function for loading groceries. The bottom freezer includes a factory installed icemaker and a pull-out drawer with plastic front, ideal for keeping your frozen items protected from the ambient temperature when the door is opened.

With its unique footprint and attractive style, the FFBF181SSIM brings a luxury look to kitchens with space limitations.
