The 16.6-cubic-foot Frigidaire FFFH17F2QW upright freezer does its job extremely well, drawing top scores for temperature control and energy efficiency. Users are impressed by how tightly the door seals, and say this model's upright design and adjustable shelves help you quickly find whatever you're looking for, despite the freezer's generous size. The frost-free operation, a bright interior LED light, and a lock that automatically pops the key out (so you can't accidentally leave it in the lock) are all favorite features.
The 13.8-cubic-foot Frigidaire FFFU14F2QW compact upright freezer fits through most doorways easily, although it's loud enough that users prefer to keep it in the garage or basement. It more than makes up for the noise with its solid, reliable performance, and still provides enough space to freeze half a cow and half a pig, or stockpile bulk sale purchases. Features include a lock that automatically ejects the key, adjustable shelving, and bright LED lighting on the interior.
With 10.6 cubic feet of storage space, the GE FCM11PHWW chest freezer suits small and midsize families; one family used it to storage a full side of beef and a year's worth of garden produce. Users are thrilled with its whisper-quiet operation, reliable temperature control and "just right" size, and they say it's great at keeping everything frozen during power outages. Favorite features include three lift-out sliding baskets, a power-on light, and recessed handles on either side of the door.
The GE FCM7SKWW strikes a great balance between space and value, with 7 cubic feet of storage, whisper-quiet operation, and top expert scores for its efficiency. Users like the interior lighting, locking lid, and three sliding baskets that also lift out to help you organize smaller items in the freezer. There's also a defrost drain and a power-on light so you can see the freezer is receiving power, and this model receives very good scores for its performance during power outages.
At 5 cubic feet, the GE FCM5SKWW chest freezer is big enough to supplement an in-fridge freezer or stock up on sale goods, but small enough that you can still reach down to the bottom and easily find whatever it is you're looking for. The temperature control, defrost drain and power-on indicator are located front and center, where they're easy to get at; operation is dependable and whisper-quiet, making this a great choice for dorm rooms or small apartments.
If you only need a little extra fridge and freezer space, the 1.1-cubic-foot Edgestar Convertible Refrigerator/Freezer can fill either role. Users love it for specialized, occasional use where a bigger freezer (or fridge) would be overkill: For example, freezing breastmilk, chilling meat by the barbecue, freezing ice for a party, or as an under-desk appliance. This tiny fridge/freezer easily hits and maintains zero degrees, and comes with a built-in lock to keep out nosey roommates or office buddies.Buy for $170.99
