Two specialists, one extraordinary kitchen.

SUB ZERO, the specialist in refrigeration, has pioneered the art and science of food preservation since 1945. From the moment a fig is picked, a clock begins to tick. For its flavour is never better, brighter, or sweeter than when it is perfectly ripe. Prolonging that freshness—that fleeting peak taste and texture—is the single-minded mission of Sub-Zero.

WOLF, the specialist in cooking, offers a professional kitchen pedigree, the service of a family-owned and -operated company, and the pioneering products built and tested to last for over 20 years of predictably delicious dishes. Friends gathered around a table. Family recipes, lovingly served. And dishes, passed with pride - each one a seared, succulent, or slow-roasted masterpiece - to create those moments worth savouring for.

Live graciously, live freshly, live colourfully, live adventurously, live gratefully, live respectfully, live richly, live joyfully, live deliciously, live adventurously – from SUB ZERO & WOLF New Zealand.
