An extra freezer in your home can offer you a wealth of convenience. It lets you buy more food in bulk and actually have a place to store it without overstuffing your fridge and freezer in your kitchen. But a separate freezer is also a big investment that requires you to consider a few details. When it comes to freezer shopping, here’s what you should keep it mind.
Freezer Shopping 101
Where Is It Going to Go?
The amount of space you have available for your freezer will determine the type of model you can get.
- If you only have an a small amount of space, you may be limited to an upright model. These also usually offer more organization options.
- If you have a bit more space to spare, you could get a chest unit that holds more food.
How Many People Are in the House?
If you have more people to feed, you’ll end up keeping more food in your freezer. And since a fuller freezer stays colder than a freezer that’s only have full, your unit will function better.
What Kind of Defrost System Do You Want?
Different models have different defrost systems — some are frost-free, while others need to be defrosted manually. While frost-free units may be more convenient, manual-defrost units may be cheaper.
What’s Your Budget?
If you want to add more bells and whistles to your freezer, your price tag may go up a bit. These can include things like:
- Interior lights
- Adjustable shelves and baskets
