Top 5 Best Upright and Chest Freezers for Extra Food Storage

It's critical to have extra food storage space when you need it. Most of the time we use our refrigerator to store short-term fresh foods and beverages. Our refrigerators get packed on a weekly basis, yet our freezers hold a carton of ice cream, some frozen convenience foods, and some ice cubes.

There are times when we feel the need to stock up on more food items than usual. Given recent developments with the COVID-19 outbreak, Americans across the country are stocking up on food, working from home, spending time with family, and avoiding contact with the outside world.

It's convenient to have an extra freezer handy. Whether you regularly experience inclement weather, or if you just like to host around the holidays, extra space is always convenient.

Chest Freezer vs. Upright Freezer
There are many types of freezers out there, upright freezers and chest freezers are the most common. The type of freezer you buy will come down to how much floor space you have. If you have a small space, consider an upright model. You will likely want to buy the biggest freezer you can with the most cubic feet of space.

    Freezer Space
    You want to make sure you have enough freezer space. Not only enough space for the appliance to fit, you also should make sure you can easily open the door. Just an extra cubic foot or two of space could make a big difference. You should also consider storage features like storage baskets, door shelves, and interior lighting. This way you can easily access the items in your extra freezer.
  • Appliances use energy. Minimize your electric bill by purchasing an energy star freezer. Energy star appliances are also better for the environment.
  • Auto Defrost vs. Manual Defrost
    There are two types of freezers, auto defrost and manual defrost. Auto defrost freezers automatically melt any ice build up that collects on the sides of the freezer.

    Manual defrost freezers use less energy and are usually less expensive. However, with a manual defrost freezer, you will want to thaw and drain any ice build up at least once per year.
