Let me begin this post by thanking you for your stand-alone freezer recommendations. From you I learned that an upright, frost-free freezer is the way to go. And that there is no such thing as a “too-big” freezer. Would you like to see what was delivered to me just this morning?
You’re looking at General Electric’s 21.3 cubic feet frost-free upright. It was the largest freezer our budget would permit. We purchased the freezer in mid-July from an appliance store in Albany, NY. Since no freezers were in stock anywhere at that time, we waited 6 weeks for delivery.
Of course, before the freezer was delivered, we had to decide where, exactly, to put the thing. In our Victorian basement? No — it’s too creepy down there. The garage? We don’t have a garage. The pantry? Bingo! I carefully measured the room to make sure that the 19th-century cabinetry doors there would open fully once the freezer was in place. Still, one element was missing from the room: an electrical outlet! Our electrician installed this critical component on Friday — one day before the freezer arrived.
Again, thank you for steering me in the right freezer-buying direction. I look forward to stocking the appliance. Also, I can’t wait to develop lots of “Freezer Dinner” recipes, which, of course, I will happily share with you! xKevin
