Going shopping for a new you have one with freezer on bottom? Like it or hate it?

I keep seeing them everywhere, to me it seems harder to get too....but maybe I just dont understand the benefits.

Tell me what you think.

  • If you have ANY back issues whatsoever..pass on the bottom freezer...OR if you don't want to have any back issues

  • May I suggest if you have a Sears near by to go to the scratch and dent sale, they have awesome fridges for very cheap because of one or two unnoticeable dents or scratches, it is really worth looking into.

  • oh yes I ALWAYS hit the scratch and dent before going inside....I have found some very nice things there for hundreds of dollars

    chocolat...see thats my thinking....bending over for EVERYTHING I want out of the freezer.....seems like hairs and such would easily drop inside as well....bending over it so often...

  • I wouldnt get one with a freezer in the bottom. I can only imagine how much my son would be in the freezer himself pulling mess out!!! UGG! Not for my family!

  • I like it and my friend has one and she loves it. BONUS: You don't have to worry about frozen item falling out and hitting your feet if you get one.

  • My son is 2 and he doesnt get into it. Too heavy for him to open.

  • I would love to have a freezer on the bottom, we use it so much less and it would move the fridge area higher, which is what we use so much more.

  • I wish ours had a freezer on the bottom! A good friend and my grammy both have them, and it is so much easier getting things in and out of the fridge!

  • We bought a new fridge a few months ago and chose to go with a side-by-side, which we LOVE. We opted to go that route instead of the freezer on bottom because we use the freezer all the time (I'm not much of a cook, ahem, so lots of frozen stuff for us) and none of us liked the idea of constantly bending over to get stuff. So I guess it's probably just more of a personal preference as to which design is more convenient for your family.

  • We have a side by side but when we do need to get one it's going to be a freezer on the top I am not going to be bending over to get into the freezer
