Freezer Overview


Different Types of Amana Freezers and their Key Features

Upright Freezers

Upright freezers from Amana are known for their durability, style, and elegance. They come packed with practical features and allow for easier access to stored items.

When it comes to food storage and convenience, upright freezers are the better buys because the vertical storage allows for easy access and better organization. Upright freezers do have one drawback, however, and that is the lesser efficiency in energy savings due to the amount of cold air that gets out when the door is opened.

Chest freezers

Chest freezers from Amana come with their handy organization baskets so that you can arrange the contents inside. Removable baskets also help you open up more space when needed. The main drawback to chest freezers is that food items that were stored tend to get lost in the cavernous spaces, especially if you have a large freezer.

The chest freezers from this brand have extra large baskets for larger items and smaller ones for items that tend to get lost easily. Chest freezers are also cheaper and tend to handle temperature outages better, so they can keep food items safer for longer even during power blackouts.

Amana chest freezers come in various capacities and dimensions, so whether you are looking for a small chest freezer for your apartment or a large one for your food service business, you can find the right chest freezer unit from Amana.

Popular Amana Models and Main Features


A popular product from Amana is the AFU1567A, a 15 cu. ft. deep freeze freezer, which has the 5 Stor-Mor shelves, 3 wire removable cabinet shelves, a commercial rated power cord, and interior light. It also sports the fast freeze setting.

The Amana AFU1567A is Energy-star qualified, has a frost-free defrost system, a contoured door, a power indicator light, energy-efficient foam insulation, and 2 front leveling legs. It has the smooth rust- and impact-resistant liner and a tight seal door gasket.

You keep food stored safely with the AFU1567A's adjustable temperature control, which allows you to keep food at the ideal temperature.


The AQF1613TEW is an 15.8 cu. ft. upright freezer with three wire removable shelves and five door shelving. It also sports the fast freeze feature, the Energy star qualification, 2 front leveling legs, a smooth rust- and impact-resistant liner, and a tight seal door gasket and an adjustable temperature control. There is a contoured reversible door and a stylish texture steel cabinet.


Another upright freezer from Amana is the AQF2013TEW, a large freezer with 20.1 cu.ft capacity, complete with a textured door, wire shelves, fixed door shelves, fast freeze settings, and lower wire storage baskets. It also sports front leveling legs and an upfront adjustable temperature control.

It does lack several convenience features, such as the power on light and energy-efficient foam insulation. The multiple shelving allow for more leeway in shelving and organization options. The tight seal door gaskets keep the cold air sealed in for better temperature regulation and also help in conserving energy. The textured steel cabinet adds to the elegance and style of the unit.
