Refrigerator Repair | The Benefits of a Bottom Freezer

Refrigerator Repair | Buying your first refrigerator can be both fun and confusing. There are so many different types, features and finishes to choose from that shopping around becomes more of a chore than a recreation. It’s very easy to lose sight of the end goal, which is ultimately to buy a feature-packed refrigerator that looks great.

But what about door orientation?

You may think that a refrigerator’s door orientation is just a matter of looks, but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

The way a refrigerator is designed on the inside determines how the doors are orientated on the outside. For the sake of providing you with the most information, we’ve decided to cover each door orientation separately. So in this blog, we will explain the benefits of a bottom freezer, in particular, a bottom freezer drawer.

You can stock more food in it

There’s no mistaking it. You can store a lot more in a bottom freezer than a top freezer. Top freezers lack the depth that you’d get from a bottom freezer. They also lack drawers. With a top freezer, visual ease is the main goal, so there’s not much in the way of storage contraptions. You just have to stack your foods as best as you can to make them easier to grab and see. Bottom freezers however, have deep bins or drawers to help you organize your goods. They’re also bigger so you can fit more.

It’s in line with our primal nature

Thousands of years ago we had to bury food in the snow to freeze it; and as we evolved, bending down to grab frozen food became the norm. Somewhere along the way, we decided that reaching up for frozen food was more convenient — but there was one slight problem. The fresh food was placed below eye level, so we got used to grabbing frozen processed foods instead of healthier unprocessed foods. This of course lead to many of the health issues we suffer from today– which were virtually unheard of 100 years ago. Bottom freezers encourage you to grab healthier fresh foods and to reach for frozen foods sparingly.

You get a bigger refrigerator

In addition to having a large bottom freezer, you’ll gain more real estate up top. There are two basic refrigerator styles with bottom freezers: French door refrigerators and 2-door refrigerators. The French-door refrigerator offers over-sized shelves, wide deli drawers and gallon door bins. This style is best for people with large families, people who store baked goods like cakes and roasts, or for foodies who like a cinematic display of their goods. A 2-door refrigerator is best for families who eat more fresh foods than frozen ones, but need large freezers to stock up on bargain buys. – Appliance Connection
