ST. LOUIS, May 9, 2016—True Refrigeration®—the leading choice of top chefs, luxury hotels, and discriminating homeowners for more than 70 years—unveils the latest addition to its True Residential® refrigeration line, The True 48, capable of preserving vast quantities of fresh produce. Everything about The True 48’s design feels solid, well thought-out and of the highest quality. From its exclusive stainless steel bins with soft-close action to its dramatic ramp-up interior lighting designed to showcase—not just reveal—its contents, this product is designed to impress. 

“Home chefs are using fresher, quality ingredients, meaning an increased demand for more cold storage space to accommodate the fresh food lifestyle, which True supports,” said True Director of Sales and Marketing Steve Proctor. “True embraced this trend by increasing the cubic footage of The True 42’s refrigerator section, providing designers and consumers with a 48-inch option that complements The True 42 and provides more space to store fresh and organic foods.” 

The True 48 features 20.7 cubic feet of refrigeration space and 8.7 cubic feet of freezer storage, for a total capacity of nearly 30 cubic feet. Its industry exclusive 304 stainless steel interior and exterior ensures a hygienic, antibacterial and easy-to-clean surface. Dual compressors and evaporators prevent odor and moisture transfer between the refrigerator and freezer, ensuring proper air flow, temperature control and maximum performance. 

The refrigerator features four steel-encapsulated, adjustable glass shelves above three all-stainless steel bins—each featuring soft-close action—and ergonomically designed tubular handles that are comfortably sized. The industrial-grade door hinges are beautifully crafted and rated for extreme tolerance, having passed True’s rigorous one million door openings test. The doors themselves offer an impressive 120-degree stay-open feature and, though easy to open, feel substantial and shut with a quietly satisfying soft-close action.
