Both with a fully expandable freezer drawer for the full view.

  • Stainless Steel Interior
  • Helps prevent bacteria growth and keeps the refrigerator naturally hygienic, just like in a professional kitchen.
  • Cool Door System
  • A cold air channel behind the door racks ensures that food items on these racks are stored at the same temperature as in the refrigerator compartment.
  • Motorized Glass Shelf
  • A push of a button moves the motorized shelf to the desired height, even when fully loaded, thus making reorganizing the refrigerator comparment easy and time-efficient.
  • New Lighting System
  • Upper halogen spotlights and two halogen light pillars fully illuminate the interior.
  • Multi-Flow Air System
  • A continuous flow of air running along the interior back wall provides an even distribution of air and ensures equal temperature levels on all shelves.
  • Doors Open to a 115-Degree Angle
  • Allowing to completely pull out all drawers for easy access to stored items.
  • Individual Compressors and Evaporators
  • Each column features an evaporator and compressor.
  • The individual columns operate independently, without air exchange, preventing odor transfer.
  • The independent operation creates perfect temperatures - the refrigerator is not cooled by the freezer air - and maintains perfect humidity levels to keep vegetables and fruit crisp and fresh longer.
  • Gaggenau-Exclusive Heavy Load Door Hinge
  • Holds up to 220 lbs. of door weight.
  • Heavy door panels are easy to install with the unique door installation technique.
  • Aluminum Door Bins
  • These adjustable bins offer plenty of storage space and have a variety of uses.
  • They are made of solid, anodised aluminum, which is particulary hygienic and easy to clean, as well as preventing odor transfer from food.
  • Electronic Temperature Control
  • With more precise temperature control, food can be stored longer.
  • The keypad with digital temperature display is used for all settings, including special functions.
  • Fast Freezing
  • This maximum power setting reduces the extent to which already frozen items warm up when unfrozen items are added to the compartment.
  • What's more, fast freezing has a beneficial effect on the durability and quality of the frozen food after thawing.
  • The cell structures of frozen foods are not destroyed, and taste and freshness are preserved.
  • The appliance automatically returns to normal operation.
  • Fast Cooling
  • Similar in function and effect to the fast freezing system.
  • Automatic quick-chilling gives maximum chilling power, thus helping to prevent warming of items already stored when new items are placed in the refrigerator.
  • The appliance automatically returns to normal operation.
  • Storage Time After a Malfunction
  • The time in which the temperature in a fully loaded freezer compartment takes to rise to 61°F.
  • When the compartments are not fully loaded, shorter times apply
  • Vacation Mode for Refrigerators
  • This energy-saving program is for when food needs to remain safely refrigerated and frozen while you are away for long periods.
  • At this setting, defrosting is less fequent than normal, which saves both energy and costs.
