Contemporary European Design In Harmony with Nature 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. 

In Harmony with Nature

Blomberg understands living well also means living intelligently and responsibly. It’s a distinction that earned us the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellece award in 2020 for a second year in a row. Featuring innovative technology that safeguards your food and ensures maximum freshness, our ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators also conserve energy, save money, and help protect the planet. The ultimate in eco-friendly engineering, Blomberg refrigerators are built with 99.9% lead-free materials, 100% free from ozone-depleting greenhouse gases, and manufactured with 85% recyclable components.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could love my refrigerator Have had this Refrigerator for 2 years. Had to have the water dispenser repaired day one as it never worked. Then 1 year into ownership had to have the compressor replaced as it was very loud. Now the compressor is making the same level of noise again a year later. Today the ice maker makes ice then melts the ice and into one big block. I want to love this appliance however these problems are not normal in a 2 year old refrigerator. I have a 26 year old Amana (Whirlpool) in the basement as a backup and it never has been repaired! Blomberg please make this right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Refrigerator! I have had this refrigerator for approximately one month and am very pleased with it. The interior has plenty of space for storing food. Stored items are easy to see and access. Fresh fruit and vegetables stay fresh -- much longer than in my old refrigerator. The adjustable shelves are a breeze to remove and clean (one of the reasons I liked this brand/model over others). The ice maker works great and creates small size cubes that are the ideal size for using in my sports bottles. The temperature controls work perfectly and the controls are conveniently located and easy to use. The exterior is very sleek looking and the stainless steel finish is easy to clean. I really like the bottom drawer freezer. I find it much more convenient to have the freezer at the bottom. The freezer drawer is roomy and it freezes food quickly. The refrigerator stands in a tight space (there is a wall on one side of it), but I am still able to open all the interior drawers when the doors are open perpendicular to the floor -- a feature not found in other brands/models. The only negative about this refrigerator is that there is not room in the door to hold an entire carton of eggs. An egg tray is provided that will fit if you don't mind storing them that way. Overall I am delighted with this refrigerator and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed Our family of four has had this refrigerator for over a year. Good size, nice layout. It has been problem free. No complaints. It was hard to find reviews when we were researching it. We don't have water line hooked up to it so can't comment on that feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from streamline I have had the fridge for a month and am getting used to the design, making it more efficient for the way we use it. The reason I bought it was the streamline looks and German engineering. I love the way the finish is on the outside really easy to keep clean just wipe. I think that the odor suppressor works and the ion A few changes you could consider making: - it's quite noisy; my 25 year old fridge was quiter - the water dispenser could be make slightly larger so filling your glass is quicker - could have a bit less room in the freezer and more room in the fridge. We have lots of vegetables/fruit and I need to use the cheese/meat section for that as well the egg tray does not fit into the door compartments very well it should maximize the space - add another shelf on the door to hold more items - the door handles could protrude

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fridge Works; Ice Maker Not so much Ice maker leaks into the freezer which causes serious ice buildup to the point half the freezer is useless. I had to turn off the ice maker to prevent further issues or potential damage. I wouldn't recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I bought this refrigerator 3 weeks ago. I wanted a refrigerator with filtered water and an ice maker. I wanted the ice maker in the freezer not the refrigerator. This ice maker makes a lot of ice. The ice cubes are small which I like. The Ice bin is a closed in drawer in the freezer which is great. The refrigerator is very quiet. This model is smaller than my old refrigerator yet it seems like I can put more in it. I love the pull out pantry drawer. It holds so much food. My fruits and vegetables stay fresh longer due to the blue light technology. The filtered water dispenser in the refrigerator is great. The water is cold and fits any size glass or bottle. I fill my 12 cup electric peculator every morning with no problems. I spent several weeks reading reviews of every refrigerator and going to many retail stores to check them all out. In the end I decided on this brand and model. I made the right choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The risk wasn't a risk after all We thought we were taking a risk by buying a less-familiar brand (to us), but a few days in and still 9 months later we cannot be happier with our Blomberg fridge. We like the layout, how quietly it runs, how easily the exterior cleans, and that there's no branding on the front. What surprised us the most, however, is how well designed it is; closing the exterior doors ensures all the interior drawers (if ajar, not if pulled all the way out) get closed too. As noted in other reviews, yes, it ran a little loud when we plugged it in for the first time (oh no!), but it quieted right down when filled and close to temperature (whew!!). The ice maker makes many little cubes quickly, so we turn it on as needed (you'll hear the ice drop) and we keep if off most of the time (silence). The water dispenser - the Achilles heel of every fridge that has one - has given no problems so far. Last, it rolls easily on its little wheels even when full, so it's easy to pull it out and get behind it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great if it all worked Bought the fridge beginning of June, store says still can't get parts to fix it. Louder than any fridge have, repair man said due to the type of compressor they use. Main control board had to be replaced and ice maker did not work, leaked water all over freezer and floor. Repair man replaced ice maker, still did not worked leaked all over freezer and floor again. Told us he can't get right parts for this because it is a Bloomberg and no body has them. Three months later we are still fighting with store to return the fridge to get one that works. They continue to tell us parts needed will be in, just on back order for another month. No, just take it back. Can't imagine if it was something more than the simple ice maker that needed to be fixed. We would be waiting for over 3 months to get anything fixed, no way take it back! Lesson learned, don't buy any brand that can not be easily serviced with access to parts. Something will always break. Just hope it doesn't get delivered broken, then you have a fight to return it. Definitely, don't let them continue to try and fix it. Force them to take it back right away!!! Or you will be like us 4 months with a new fridge that doesn't work still fighting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor ice maker The ice maker always makes too much ice which then freezes into one large chunk. We have to chip away at it to get pieces of ice-now it is not working at all! Very frustrating and the user manual doesn’t provide much direction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How do I shut off the ice maker feature My husband and I purchased Blomberg refrigerator, gas stove, microwave and dishwasher. We are in love with these appliances. They are beautiful to look at, work exceptionally well and clean up beautifully. We read every review of practically every stove and refrigerator on the market and are truly satisfied with these products. The counter depth refrigerator ....although looks amazing!! My only frustration is I cannot figure out how to shut off the ice maker. I have read the booklet but cannot see where the button is located. Also, we never received the griddle with our purchase and if available would love to purchase. If anyone one can advise on these 2 subjects, I would so appreciate it. One last thing, the stainless Steele finish on all the appliances is so easy to keep clean!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Products do not last. Purchased this refrigerator January 2017 -- within 6 months the ice maker would fall into the ice bucket. Now Sept 2019 the ice maker no longer works. The products needs repairs too often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek looking We have had this fridge for almost two months. We wanted a counter depth fridge, for us there is enough room (inside) although we did remove one of the shelves for taller items, eg. boxed wine. Had to learn to how to organize the shelves. Positives - water dispenser on inside of fridge leaving outside sleek. Great ice maker Drawers in freezer Shelves on door, deep Negatives - water only dispenses one cold glass of water, second glass is warm. This is my biggest negative. You are not sure of the temperature of the fridge as it does not change. only shows what you set the temperature at Shelves on door do not accommodate a dozen eggs. The egg holders, hold 6 eggs each, are nice that were included but you can not put them beside each other. I have had to put them on two different shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! We bought this model this winter. It has been such a joy using it. It is easy to organise our groceries and sauces/spices etc. We love the built in ice maker and water filter that are inside so the outside is minimalist with clean lines. The only wish would be that the ice drawer was a little more narrow which would give a little extra room for the top drawer of the freezer. We highly recommend this refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great refrigerator We purchased this model fridge BRFD2230SS back in 2016. It still looks brand new and functions as such too. It was one of the first off the production line. I never purchase new models of anything, but something told me this was a company I could count on. I emailed the company because some of the reviews I had read were not flattering, and within a day I received an email back with a response that put my fears to ease. Not only did we go with this fridge, we also purchased a Blomberg dishwasher, which has also exceeded our expectations. The dishwasher, as well as the fridge, is built to EU standards so energy efficiency is superior to any product not built to those standards. All of this made Blomberg a company I wanted to do business with. If I have the need, I would definitely buy their products again. Blomberg should be on your short list for kitchen appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs This Bloomberg refrigerator was purchased to replace a defective another full size brand name fridge. The Bloomberg fridge, despite its smaller serviceable area, does provide all the space we require as the shelving is better designed. The only minor issue is trying to figure out how to change the temperatures in the freezer section / main storage area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent product but needs better customer service I have had this fridge for 2 years and already had to replace the entire ice maker which cost me $200 for the part. Trying to get a replacement water filter in the u.s is impossible. Dealer couldn’t get one and not sold in stores. Had to pay $75 online which is $25 more than any other filter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well designed interior The interior is very well designed and the double ice makers can't be beat. The water line to the water dispenser freezes up at least once a month and can take a week to thaw out set at 38 degrees or would give this product a better overall review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too loud!!! This fridge is so loud when the compressor is running (which is often) we can't be in 3 rooms on the downstairs floor when the compressor is running. It's literally a nightmare, we're on the 3rd fridge and they have all been the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst appliance I've ever owned I purchased this fridge just over 3 years ago. When it arrived it began leaking water onto our floors because the ice maker was faulty. This was repaired under warranty but was still inconvenient and took the technician a few retun trips to rectify. Early last year the water dispenser became stuck open. Every time the doors were opened the water would begin to flow everywhere. The fridge was just out of warranty. I was directed to a company recommended technician. The tech had to return 5 times trying different repairs and finally replaced the dispenser all together. The dispenser has completely stopped working now only a few months after being changed. This fridge was supposed to keep vegetables fresh for longer due to it's ion fresh technology. I have not noticed a difference. I believe this to be a gimic. The shelves are strange too. It is hard to find a spot to stand bottles up. Also, this refrigerator runs almost all the time and is very loud. There is a constant buzz that varies in pitch. People in our house often notice and ask "what is that sound", embarrassing. I would never recommend this product. An expensive fridge like this should last longer than 3 years. Do not buy!
