The smallest units available are 5.1 cubic feet, either the Kenmore White 5.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer(2950) or the Kenmore White 5.1 cu. ft. Chest Freezer (1950).
- If budget is no object and you are feeling spendy, go all out with the Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 16.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (4473). This unit is also listed as a Top Pick.
- On the opposite end of the spectrum, the cheapest unit is going to be the Kenmore White 6.9 cu. ft. Chest Freezer (1970). As of this writing, on sale for only $164.49, it is a smaller unit but in many cases this is all the storage space you will really need and its gotten good reviews for size.
- This one relates to the first consideration point of capacity in the sense that youll need to figure how much space you have for the unit. In some cases this could dictate which unit to purchase.
