SUMMIT's collection of no-frost counter depth refrigerator-freezers provides an attractive and user-friendly answer to small kitchen spaces.

Made for us in Europe, the FFBF181ESIM is a bottom freezer refrigerator with a unique 24" W x 25 1/4" D footprint and generous 12.8 cu.ft. capacity. It comes in a platinum cabinet finish with stainless steel doors and designer handles. The exterior digital control panel lets you manage the refrigerator and freezer temperature without opening the door, a helpful function for saving energy and not exposing the interior to warmer room temperature. The control panel includes an audible and visual high temperature and open door alarm to help protect stored contents, as well as a child safety lock to prevent anyone from accidentally changing the settings.

Inside, the FFBF181ESIM features a fully frost-free freezer compartment and an automatic defrost refrigerator section. The refrigerator section includes adjustable spill-proof glass shelves, as well as a scalloped shelf ideal for storing wine and other bottled beverages. The door features adjustable racks to accommodate a variety of sizes. This unit includes a "ZeroZone" deli drawer ideal for storing meats and cheeses at slightly colder temperatures than the rest of the refrigerator compartment. The large crisper drawer features humidity control for optimum storage of fruits and vegetables. A removable "multibox" with a silicone lid and air-tight seal is included to help store small food items that might have particularly strong odors. The control panel includes a "refrigerator boost" option to reach colder temperatures when loading groceries or first starting the unit up. This unit is equipped with adaptive intelligent technology that utilizes innovative sensors to automatically adjust to your habits. By recording common times of the door being opened and closed or patterns of when you load your groceries, the unit learns to anticipate this action and self-adjusts the temperature to handle these changes.

The lower frost-free freezer compartment is equipped with two slide-out drawers with plastic fronts to better protect stored items from ambient air when the door is opened. A "freezer boost" function on the control panel helps the unit to reach its coldest temperature faster and a factory installed icemaker keeps a steady supply of ice cubes on hand.

With its unique footprint and attractive style, the FFBF181ESIM brings a luxury look to kitchens with space limitations. For added luxury, this unit can be ordered with a stainless steel panel installed on the left or right cabinet wall (option PNLLH or PNLRH).

NOTE: This unit replaces the FFBF181SSIM.
