Small Freezers for Small Spaces

You might be wondering, “What is a Compact Freezer?

These are roomy, small freezers that allow you additional frozen storage space. Meat freezers, medical freezers, separate uprights are all in this category. Here are some of the more common versions:

  1. 1. Upright Freezer
    An Upright freezer looks like a skinny refrigerator. They can range from 1.5 to 4.5 cubic feet in storage. Some of the more popular brands of Upright Freezers are: Edge Star, Avanti, Danby, Haier, Kenmore, Summit and Supentown.

  2. Chest Freezer
    A Chest Freezer looks just like those you’ve seen in many gas stations and household garages. But to be a true “chest freezer” they usually range from 3.6 to 14.8 cubic feet in storage capacity. There are a number of larger Chest Freezer models (up to 24 cubic feet) but anything larger than 15 cubic feet wouldn’t fall into the compact category. Some brands to consider in this category are: Avanti, Danby, Frigidaire and Summit.

  3. Medical Freezers
    Medical Freezers are typically used for laboratory purposes where keeping certain items at a specific temperature is essential. These freezers are often much more expensive than your typical freezer units because they have to keep their contents well below freezing. (To essentially stop or slow down any breakdown processes or microbial activity). If this is a category you need to consider, the Summit brand is popular with many consumers in this field.

  4. 12 volt Portable Freezers
    12 volt portable freezers come in ranges of 43 to 86 quart capacities. They are perfect for chilling or freezing while on-the-go as they can be powered through a lighter in your car (as well as a regular household plug.) Two manufacturers to consider are Edge Star and Koolatron.
