For over sixty years, Liebherr has been engineering quality products. The newest addition to their refrigeration line-up, aptly named “Monolith”, is likely to take their refrigeration division to the next level.
With dimensions that mirror almost every other built-in / integrated product on the market today, Liebherr Appliances finally releases a refrigerator that sits 84 inches high. This is important – as it also opens up a wider market for the product as now you can purchase not only for a new Kitchen build out, but also purchase as a replacement to an existing built-in / integrated refrigerator.
Monolith Integrated Refrigerator Columns
The new Monolith refrigerator columns are both energy efficient and designed to preserve the life of your food. The “smart” technology used in this unit will allow you to control it from your smartphone or tablet, so you can bump up the cooling power even while you’re at the grocery store.
All Monolith refrigerators and freezers meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® rating requirements, as does the entire Liebherr North American line of refrigeration. Liebherr is also partners in the ActiveGreen® Initiative – the goal of which is to build sustainable products, with energy efficiency and longevity as key.
Because Liebherr only uses R600a refrigerant, their one of the few refrigeration companies that can claim to be HCFC and CFC-Free. Without a doubt, R600a refrigerant is the future of refrigeration and cooling, and Liebherr has been on this train longer than anyone else.

Biofresh – Still Fresher Than Ever
In 1996, Liebherr first introduced BioFresh. At the time, no one was really focusing on the actual science behind “food preservation”.
The idea is simple enough: you create different “climate-zones” within the refrigerator. For instance, you can have one drawer as a high humidity drawer for your Fruits and Vegetables which need a cold, wet atmosphere to preserve well. And then you can another drawer with low humidity for your meats and cheeses.
The new Monolith refrigerators now add a third option with “Bio-Fresh Plus” which takes things one step further, offering a drawer capable of just above freezing temperatures, perfect for seafood and shellfish. And all of this is able to be controlled from your smart phone or tablet, as well as the control panel within the refrigerator itself.
Infinity Spring Water Dispenser
Filtered water. Everyone wants it, everyone needs it. No longer will you need to buy those 2.5 gallon jugs of Zephyrhills for your refrigerator. The Infinity Spring water dispenser takes zero space from refrigeration. Built into the cavity of the unit, you simply push your glass against the metal plate and the dispenser spout tilts out and activates.
Because the spout is built into the side of the cavity, you can fit any size glass or pitcher under the spout.
