If you are shopping for a freezer, you will find that there are a number of different sizes, styles, and models. If you are looking for a freezer that will not take up a lot of space, and will let you organize and find your frozen foods easily, you should consider getting a small upright freezer. Although it's possible for fridge freezers to be built in, the space requirements are enormous. With a smaller model of upright you can easily create a smooth, built in look for your kitchen. Built in models can be installed under the counter top with cabinets around to provide the optimal space and organization. The advantage to having a small upright freezer is that they can be placed in a smaller amount of floor space than it.
With upright freezers, it is easier to keep food organized and always within view, instead of losing items in the bottom of a chest freezer. Although it will allow more cold air to escape if it is opened repeatedly, under most home use they are about as economical to operate as a chest freezer. If you factor in the minimization of food waste because of being able to find and view the frozen foods easier, it is often the best choice you can make for a home freezer.
