Which Bottom Freezer Refrigerators Are Worth Bending Over Backwards For?

This is because they conveniently place refrigeration space—which is more frequently used than the freezer space—at the top of the appliance where it is easier to reach.

But there is another reason why this refrigerator category is much loved by consumers...

As such, they are able to hold more frozen food, enabling you to buy in bulk, save money and time by reducing your trips to the store.
