Sub-Zero & Wolf: Hand-crafted and designed to last 

Sub- Zero & Wolf is a third-generation, family-run business, founded in 1945 in Wisconsin, USA, by Westye Bakke. Bakke pioneered new, safer standards of freezing, achieving consistent, below-zero temperatures for the very first time. His mission to build the best refrigeration system possible was a resounding success, and Sub-Zero & Wolf has gone on to become an esteemed badge of quality associated with some of the world’s finest homes.

In 2000, Sub-Zero’s co-brand ‘Wolf’ launched its first cooking appliances, after purchasing the residential arm of a 70-year-old US commercial cooking company and redesigning the product range from the ground up. Fourteen years later came the ‘New Generation’ range: The biggest product roll-out in the company’s history; including coffee machines, convection steam ovens, and a new series of integrated wine storage and refrigeration. More recently, outdoor products such as outdoor BBQs, burner modules, warming drawers and undercounter refrigeration have also been added to the collection, opening up a world of epicurious possibilities. These iconic stainless steel, grille-topped and red-knob appliances have become the go-to for professional chefs and home cooks alike.

The values and ethos that Sub-Zero & Wolf was built on over 70 years ago still stand: the very best materials, the best design and technology, and the best possible service. Today, sustainability is at the forefront of every decision made: over 75% of the stainless steel and up to 50% of the plastic used in its refrigerators comes from recycled materials. At the end of 2022 another large project was completed, with over 250KW of solar panels on the roof of its UK headquarters, continuing to strengthen the brand’s environmental and sustainability vision. 

Build quality, manufacturing, performance and longevity of all products are all paramount. Sub-Zero & Wolf appliances are all hand-built and designed to last for decades. The brand continues its pursuit of bringing best-in-class appliances, beautiful designs, and memorable moments to luxury homes, yachts and private jets around the world.
