The Best Upright Freezers | Reviews by Wirecutter

There’s little difference in performance among freezers, and they’re all generally reliable, so just about any model you get will be fine. But if you want to be able to find things easily, get an upright freezer instead of a chest model.

Among upright models, we like the GE FUF17DLRWW because, with its 17.3 cubic feet of space, it offers the best balance of features at the optimal size—along with some extras that you won’t find in similarly priced models.

Our pick

This garage-ready, frost-free freezer includes all of the most important features, plus a few extra perks, for less money than most comparably sized freezers. But it does not have a reversible door.

Like most upright freezers, the GE Upright Freezer FUF17DLRWW has a frost-free cooling system, which means you’ll never need to defrost it yourself. This model has a power-on indicator light, leveling legs (to balance it on uneven floors), a safety lock, and a bunch of storage baskets.

This 17.3-cubic-foot GE also has nice bonus features, like glass shelves, external temperature controls, and a temperature alarm (which alerts you if the door has been left open).

Unlike many of its competitors, this model can be placed in the garage, in temperatures ranging from zero to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. This freezer does not have a reversible door, however, so if you need a model that opens from the right, you should consider our runner-up pick.


This Frigidaire is a little smaller than our top pick, with all of the critical features you’d expect. And it has a reversible door.

The Frigidaire FFFU16F2VW Upright Freezer is similar to our top pick, but with a smaller capacity (15½ cubic feet). It still has all of the most important features—including a frost-free cooling system, a power-on indicator light, a temperature alarm, leveling legs, and plenty of storage shelves.

The Frigidaire doesn’t have external temperature controls or glass shelving, but it does have a reversible door, which makes placement more flexible.
