Contemporary European Design Duo Cycle Cooling Blue Light Technology


Contemporary European Design

Blomberg refrigerators harmonize refined design sensibilities with the demand for functional excellence. Thoughtful decisions may include a streamlined counter-depth design for the clean sight lines you covet, reversible doors for ultimate flexibility, plus a luxurious stainless steel finish that resists fingerprints and makes cleaning effortless. Boldly beautiful Euro-style handles combine sophistication and strength to complement both your aesthetics and your active life. Inside, theatrical LED lighting brilliantly illuminates every corner while conserving energy. Prominent digital display puts complete control within easy reach. 

Duo Cycle Cooling

Ingenious Blomberg refrigerators are equipped with advanced multi-cycle, no-frost, silent cooling technology. Independently zoned and controlled cooling systems maintain even air temperature and humidity in separate freezer and fresh-food compartments, delivering enhanced food preservation and maximum energy efficiency. No air transfer between compartments means food in the freezer section freezes faster, items in the refrigerator stay fresher longer, and odors don’t circulate.

Blue Light Technology

Exclusive Blomberg Blue Light Technology represents a breakthrough in keeping fruits and vegetables fresh and juicy long after they’re picked. Continuous blue light rays illuminate the crisper and allow the natural process of photosynthesis to continue, prolonging storage life and preserving natural flavors, colors, textures, and nutrients.

Ion Fresh

This exceptional Blomberg technology simulates a natural process to bring pure freshness to your kitchen. By producing negative ions inside the refrigerator, Ion Fresh captures and neutralizes airborne bacteria, odor-causing microbes, and ethylene gas, extending the life of fresh fruits and vegetables and keeping circulated air clean and fresh smelling.

Digital Display

Blomberg refrigerators feature bright, accessible digital displays that simplify programming and put you in control of performance.

Sabbath Mode

This convenient feature makes it simple to observe the rules of the Jewish Sabbath. Just set the special mode in advance and the lights inside the refrigerator and freezer compartments will not turn on when the door is opened.

Automatic Ice Machine

Whether you are getting ready for a big party or just keeping up with your busy family life, there is never a need to rush out and buy ice. The Blomberg turbo-charged, automatic icemaker can produce up to 11 pounds of crystal-clear ice per day.

Large Freezer Drawer

Generously sized freezer storage drawers perfectly fit the Blomberg lifestyle. The large-capacity main compartment offers plenty of accessible room, while the sliding bin gives you the flexibility to store smaller items within easy reach.

Large Pantry Drawer

An ingenious addition to the modern refrigerator, this full-width shallow drawer is ideal for storing cold cuts, cheeses, and small packages that can easily get pushed to the back of the shelves and out of sight. It is also a handy solution for storing drink boxes and snacks where the kids can help themselves.

Height-adjustable Cantilever Shelves

Blomberg believes refrigerators should be adaptable as well as beautiful. Our expansive glass shelves are cantilevered at the back so you can use every inch of space for storage. Plus, with a simple motion they can be manually adjusted up or down 3 inches to accommodate anything from the holiday turkey to a towering layer cake.

Interior Filtered Water Dispenser

To preserve the integrity of Blomberg’s contemporary European design, the water dispenser is on the inside of the refrigerator door instead of the outside. Enjoy all the convenience and great taste of chilled, filtered water at the touch of a button, plus the elegance and clean, sleek lines that blend so beautifully with your kitchen décor.

Interior Theater Lighting

Blomberg ventures beyond the conventional with theatrical LED lighting on the top and side walls that perfectly illuminates the interior and contents of your refrigerator, yet conserves energy.

36" Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Finicky My condo building was delivered brand new in 2015. Each unit (~62) included the Blomberg refrigerator. Ive heard from many of my colleagues that 75% of the ice makers have stopped working. Under warranty, the technician was unable to fix the issue after several time-consuming fact, after one "attempted fix", the entire unit stopped working. After much frustration, many phone calls, I was able to get an entirely new fridge (was without a fridge for a month). For the price tag, the build quality is extremely shoddy. BUYER BEWARE. The sheer volume of people in my building experiencing issues is very concerning and telling of the products quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this fridge We purchased this fridge less than 2 years ago expecting a quiet, German piece of top notch engineering. However, the first one was delivered and 1) was very noisy 2) ice machine didn’t work. We had a repair person out 3 times & then Blomberg finally replaced w/ new fridge. It worked fine for a few months ( still not as quiet as I hoped) and wouldn’t you know it, the compressor is so loud now we can hear it in our bedroom, ice machine never turns off. This model has never worked for us & now we’re looking at over $600 labor just to get it where it should have been all along. It is NOT quiet & has been a complete pain in the rear. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this Blomberg fridge. Don’t be tempted by the sleek design #lemon

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy! We have owned this refrigerator for 2 years. I had to have the freezer drawer cable replaced within the first year. It broke and I was unable to open the drawer. Within 2 years I had to replace the ice maker since that also broke and would dump water into the ice drawer. The refrigerator compressor is extremely loud especially when the second stage kicks in as explained by the repairman. We've actually had guests comment about it when visiting. The temperature also does not stay consistent in in the refrigerator - some of the deli meats and vegetables end up partially frozen. I would never buy this product again and do not recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance, quality, features, looks and value! Bought Blomberg's 30" Pro-Style Gas Range and 36" Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator 7 months ago from Monark Appliances (Santa Clara, CA) and installed them 1 month ago following a total kitchen remodel. Bought these sight-unseen based on features, specs and reviews, and are so happy we did. Easy install. Units are gorgeous, and rival any of their top-tier counterparts at 1/2 - 1/3 the price. 3rd party thermometers in fridge, freezer and oven confirm operating temp in units = spot-on. Fridge is whisper quiet, and love the fact that we now have filtered ice water and ice cubes dispensed INSIDE the fridge, without unsightly exterior dispensers. Gas range is a flame thrower for wok-based concoctions, a simmerer for sauces, and everything in between. Both HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (and I NEVER post online recommendations).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product Our Washington, DC condo building was delivered in 2015. Each unit includes the Blomberg refrigerator. That is 66 devices. 75% of the ice makers have stopped working. Now some owners are finding the fridges are just conking out altogether. No service provider in the area to even fix the ice makers! I would not recommend this product at all. 66 homeowners can't be wrong!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok as a fridge but really noisy Continuous noise except when defrosting. Compressor noise and internal fan noise is really loud, constant, and irritating. I submitted these comments previously online to Blomberg, no reply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge We’ve had the refrigerator for about 6 months now. Overall we really like it. The shelves and storage are nicely laid out, it looks nice and we like having the water dispenser inside the fridge. The ice maker in the freezer is also great and produces a lot of ice. One note- the fridge was very loud the first day we installed it (compressor running at high speed) but once it came up to temperature it quieted down a ton. The only one negative is I wish the flow rate from the water dispenser was higher/faster.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible refrigerator I do not write reviews but had to on this one. This refrigerator is horrible. Very loud, ice maker does not make enough ice, had the ice maker replaced twice, motherboard replaced once and arm in ice maker always gets stuck. Now the freezer door gets stuck on occasion and I mean stuck where you have to wedge your hand in the side and pull as hard as you can to open. Service tech said it's a bad design and I need to get replacement brackets. Oh, and they told me the parts come from Germany and still not in yet. Thank goodness for the xtended warranty we actually purchased this about a year ago. Definitely do not buy.
