Bottom freezer refrigerators are an extremely popular fridge freezer style. They offer a number of benefits that other types of refrigeration appliances do not.
This article explores some of the advantages of bottom freezer fridge freezers.
The primary benefit of one of these refrigerators is that they do not require a whole lot of floor space. Many modern refrigerator designs – such as the side-by-side and French door refrigerator freezers – are rather wide, and do not easily fit into small kitchens.
A bottom freezer fridge will usually be narrower than these types of appliances, which makes them better able to be installed into narrow openings against your kitchen wall. Now of course there are other fridges that have a similar width to these units – top mount freezer refrigerators for one – so there must be other additional benefits that explain the popularity of the bottom mounted units.
What bottom mount freezer refrigerators offer that top mount units do not is convenience. Since the refrigerator compartment is elevated in these appliances, it is a lot easier to access the contents of your fridge in a bottom mounted freezer fridge device. Considering that most users will need entry to the refrigerator considerably more often than they do the freezer, this can be a significant advantage.
On a related note, in this type of refrigerator the location of the crispers are a lot more convenient also. When a fridge is resting on the ground, the bottom couple of shelves – which is where the vegetable crispers are normally found – are very low and difficult to get to. When the fridge rests on top of the freezer unit however, the fresh produce stored in the crisper is a lot easier to access and thus a lot more likely to be eaten.
There is an extensive selection of Maytag bottom freezer refrigerators available; but odds are all your favorite brand have offerings also. Amana refrigerators, Fisher Paykel fridges, Whirlpool, the Korean firms LG and Samgung, GE, Bosch and KitchenAid are just some of the brands are available in bottom freezer styles.
