Anyone have experience with Sub-zero freezer drawers?? Sign In/Join 
posted
We are currently buying a vacation home that has a sub-zero fridge and in the island two freezer drawers. Unfortunately they are not fitted for an ice maker...so no ice maker and it seems a pain to put ice trays into the drawers?? Guess we have to take up space with bags of ice. How have others handle this situation??? TIA

I am not sure I understand what you are saying.
I have a large built-in Sub Zero refrigerator but in another corner of the kitchen I also have a built-in Sub Zero freezer, but it comes with an ice maker.
Is there no way you can make room to add the ice maker -- is that what you are saying?
Or can you make one of the two drawers into an ice maker?
Sounds strange to me. Why would Sub Zero ever make a freezer without such an important part as an ice maker?
Doesn't make sense.
PS. At the very least, I'd opt for ice trays rather than bags of ice that would take up much more space.

After researching there are two models (600BFI) one with ice maker one without (600BF), this one is "without" and it can't be added. I was just hoping someone would have a suggestion as to how they make it work. Seems odd they would choose to not install the one with ice maker??

I think I would go to the expense of swapping out one of the drawers for one with an ice-maker. You can also get small countertop icemakers that are very efficient- I had never seen one until I recently visited a friend who had one for use on her pier.

I agree with pkpk. I would also swap one of the drawers for the ice maker rather than get a different make.
Sub Zero is top-of-the-line efficient.
I wouldn't mess around.
