Freezer Overview


Different Types of Kenmore Freezers and their Key Features

Kenmore offers freezer and refrigerator combos but for this article we shall focus on stand alone freezers from this brand. Kenmore produces chest and upright freezers in various colors, features and capacities.

Chest Freezers

Chest freezers are considered to be more ENERGY EFFICIENT than their upright counterparts, are somewhat less expensive and make excellent secondary freezers. Because of the design chest freezers also ENDURE POWER OUTAGES better compared to upright models.

Chest freezers do come with their own problems and drawbacks. For one, most chest freezers are NOT WELL-LIT and it is easy to lose contents especially if the freezer is really big. Chest freezers are often the best options for those who like to do their shopping for the two or three weeks' worth of supply and have someplace to store the perishable food items in. Chest freezers are also good for those who need to have large storage spaces for meat products.

Upright Freezers

Upright freezers are EASIER TO ORGANIZE compared to chest freezers. Food items are seen at eye level and you have the option for more organization. The interiors of upright freezers are lighted so they are more expensive. They are also LESS ENERGY EFFICIENT compared to chest types because opening of the doors allows more warm air to displace cold air.

Both types come with FROST FREE FEATURES or one that needs MANUAL DEFROSTING. The advantage with frost free units is that you are not required to thaw it out and drain it. However, it can be MORE PRICEY and more expensive to run.
