The typical refrigerator and freezer combined unit in most households is an upright model with doors that open outward. The design is usually one of two; either the refrigerator door is on the bottom and the freezer is on the top, or the refrigerator door is on one side and the freezer on the other. It is possible to find other designs; for instance, the French Door design has double doors for the refrigerator on top and a freezer drawer is on the bottom.Many homeowners consider purchasing a standalone freezer as an alternative to investing in a refrigerator with a larger freezer compartment. Bulkier food items can be stored there, leaving the refrigerator’s freezer section available for frozen dinners and other convenience foods.Buying foods in bulk has always been considered a good way to save money, but storing all that excess food can be problematic. One appliance designed to address the problem of long-term storage of frozen foods is called a chest freezer. This is a free-standing kitchen appliance that features a significant amount of space for frozen food storage.
