Upright freezers are a great way to add additional freezer space to your home without having to purchase a larger refrigerator freezer combo unit for your kitchen. And since they come in a range of different sizes, they can even be used in spaces that don’t have a freezer to begin with, like an office or dorm room. Undercounter units can be used in kitchens or placed out of the way in a utility room or garage. These models are usually large enough to keep basic items on hand while compact units only have enough space for the essentials. If you know you’ll need a lot of extra freezer space, consider getting at least an 8 cubic foot unit. Customers like this style of freezer as it is the most like the typical refrigerator in design and generally features adjustable shelving. This type of freezer is a good choice if you know you’ll need regular access to the items stored inside the freezer and you would like to avoid digging through a chest freezer.
