Best vertical freezer: review, specs, models and reviews
Most urban housewives stand alonefreezer without the need. Today's home appliances market can offer a full-fledged refrigerator with a vertical freezer, that is a universal solution, that is called two in one.
Such specific equipment is bought asrule, people who are engaged in the procurement of own products (garden, kitchen garden) or buying for future use. That is, we ourselves grow, prepare, freeze and store, or, for example, once a month we go to some wholesale warehouse, buy and save for further preservation.
Also, many are asking themselves whichthe freezer is better - vertical or horizontal? Here it is necessary to take into account several factors. If you have a separate pantry, where you can place this kind of equipment for long-term storage of products, then the horizontal variant is quite appropriate. Those who are constrained in square meters, and therefore a rather large "chest" will occupy the lion's share of the kitchen, it is better to stop on the vertical type, besides it is more universal in terms of design, and is perceived as a regular refrigerator.
In addition, you need to consider the type of productsstorage. For loose and meat, the first type of equipment is better, and for fragile and finicky - the second. Which freezer (vertical or horizontal) will be the optimal solution, depends on you and your needs, but the first option is in great demand and is considered a universal option.
The explanatory equipment of such a plan is not producedonly foreign, but also domestic manufacturers. The most popular models of the premium class are the German brand Liebherr. Despite the high price, the company's products enjoy an enviable popularity. Here we have the reliability of cameras, quality, excellent after-sales service and an abundance of useful functions. Among the latter one can note the presence of a cold preservation system, self-diagnostics, almost total control over the temperature inside the camera and other useful "chips". Most owners leave only positive feedback about the products of Liebherr. Yes, the technique of the brand is expensive, but it serves faithfully for a very long time.
Also in this segment the brand"Bosch." In the models of this company the most modern technologies are used. Many freezers (household, vertical, horizontal) brand have in their kit antibacterial protection, which for a good half of users is a critical moment during the purchase. Some owners in their reviews complain about an extremely rare, but too expensive repair, which is caused by the problem with the availability of spare parts. But the whole picture inspires optimism, especially if we look at the problems of the middle and lower price level.
In the middle class, the venerable "Samsung""Zanussi" and "Indesit". The range of these brands is very popular and filled all the shelves of domestic stores of home appliances. Of course, the products of these companies have problems with quality, functionality and others, but ubiquitous service centers will easily solve any problem, and at more than an affordable price. The equipment for these companies respond in different ways: there are also angry comments, but there are also exceptional positive responses, and about the same line.
Also it is possible to note and little-known Chinesemanufacturers, which almost do not reach the level of these three tycoons, but year after year the situation is clearly changing for the better (for the Middle Kingdom) side. So, for example, the freezer (vertical) Leran FSF 092 W made a lot of noise, ahead of analogues from Samsung and Zanussi not only in sales, but also in terms of quality. So sometimes it makes sense to look at the Chinese models.
Among domestic manufacturers it can be notedBiryusa, Saratov, Pozis and Belorussian Atlant. For example, the freezer "Biryusa" (vertical) for many has become an indispensable (and inexpensive) option for cottages or any other suburban housing. Products of domestic manufacturers are reliable enough, and repair does not fly into a lot of money, as in the case of venerable brands. Vertical freezer "Atlant" is very often found in medium and small stores, also due to ubiquitous and non-directional maintenance.
