Latest Trends: The Under Counter Freezer
Under counter freezers and under counter fridge freezers
Remember the old freezers? They were certainly useful for long-term storage of meats, vegetables, and other foods, but they weren’t at all attractive. Some were chest types and others were uprights, and they were available in any color you wanted, as long as you wanted white. They were often stuck in a basement or utility room because they didn’t exactly enhance the looks of the kitchen, and besides, they took up lots of valuable kitchen space. When you needed something from the freezer, you’d have to make the trip to the freezer to fetch it. Thankfully, modern homeowners can have the best of both worlds – a freezer that’s very functional and one with good looks. Both are possible with the under counter freezer.
What’s an under counter freezer?
An under the counter freezer is a freezer that fits into your kitchen cabinets, under the counter top, much like a built-in dishwasher. They’re real space-savers because they don’t need rear ventilation space like older models.
Under counter freezers generally come in widths of 15, 24, 30, or 48 inches, but even larger models are available. Some of the under counter freezers are in the form of slide-out drawers, which are extremely convenient for reaching items at the very rear of the unit.
An under counter refrigerator freezer is also available. An under counter fridge freezer provides both refrigerator space and freezer space, and some are equipped with ice makers. The undercounter refrigerator freezer is often used in addition to an upright refrigerator without taking up extra floor space in the kitchen because they’re built into the cabinetry.
An under the counter freezer or under counter refrigerator freezer is great for kids in the house. Even small children will be able to reach snacks and beverages. They’re also useful for storing sale items. You can buy in bulk, divide the meat or produce, and store them in your extra storage space.
Under counter freezers are modern appliances with the latest energy-saving technology. They have superb insulation, and most use a standard 110 volts instead of the 220 volts required by older models.
Also, some models of under counter freezers can serve as stand-alone units. These appliances are fitted with small wheels, so the freezer can be rolled anywhere easily.
Also unlike the traditional freezers of old, these new undercounter freezers and under counter fridge freezers come in a variety of colors and finishes to match your existing appliances. If you have a fully integrated kitchen, you can opt for an integrated under the counter freezer that has a door panel that’s made to match your cabinetry.
Why you should consider an under counter freezer
Under counter freezers are amazingly functional. With one of these installed, you’ll have all the items you need at your fingertips instead of having to make a trip to another part of the house to get what you need when preparing a meal. They’re especially useful when entertaining, too, and they provide extra space for all those leftovers that you don’t want to throw out. You’ll probably find that these useful appliances will help you save money in the long run!
