GE Upright Freezer FUF17DLRWW

GE Upright Freezer FUF17DLRWW

The best upright freezer

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. It does not have a reversible door.

Buying Options

$803* from Appliances Connection

*At the time of publishing, the price was $764.

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. In addition to a power-on indicator light, leveling legs (to balance it on uneven floors), a safety lock, and a bunch of storage baskets, this model 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, the GE can also 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.

The Frigidaire FFFU16F2VW Upright Freezer is similar to our top pick, 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.
