Maytag Upright Freezers Are Chock-full Of Benefits

Maytag upright freezers, manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation, are a great addition to any kitchen because each is chock-full of benefits that you wouldn’t expect to find on a single freezer model…

A large capacity that provides plenty of room for your favorite frozen treats…

Frost-free defrost systems, Energy Star qualification, reversible-swing door, fast freeze setting, a durable textured steel cabinet and front leveling legs.

As well as the features you’ve come to expect from a standard upright freezer model: adjustable temperature control, removable wire shelves, deep door shelves, and a smaller footprint than a chest freezer.

Here is what you can expect from each of the Maytag freezer uprights.

Freezer Capacity

The Maytag upright freezers come in 2 capacities: 15.8 cu. ft. (MQF1656TEW) and 20.1 cu. ft. (MQF2056TEW).

The Maytag upright 15.8 cu. ft. offers a range of storage options that include:

  • 3 wire shelves that facilitate food organization but can be completely removed to make room for tall or oddly shaped items
  • 5 fixed full-width door bins that are handy for storing small items that would be nearly impossible to locate on the wire shelves
  • 1 freezer floor shelf with a built-in storage gate.

The Maytag upright 20.1 cu. ft. goes one better on each of the above scores:

  • 4 wire shelves that are a great tool for food organization. Moreover, their height can be adjusted to cater for taller bottles and containers
  • 6 fixed full-width door bins provide even more storage room for the tiny items that would otherwise lie buried at the back of one of the wire shelves.

While they are probably not a good choice for anyone looking for a compact upright, these Maytag freezers are excellent for a family with medium and large freezing needs.

Frost Free Defrost System

Both the 15.8 cu. ft. and 20.1 cu. ft. upright freezers from Maytag are frost free.
In other words, these freezers have a fan that periodically blows warm air to melt any ice build ups.

That way, you don’t have to worry about emptying the contents of your freezer and then enduring the tedium of manually defrosting it.

Fast Freeze

Both the Maytag uprights come with a fast freeze feature. This allows you to freezer large amounts of food quickly.

As such, it’s great for locking the juices in newly loaded food items, keeping them fresher longer.

Energy Efficiency

Both the Maytag upright freezers are Energy Star qualified so neither will be an energy colossus…

This is because they consume appreciably less electricity than other identically sized upright freezers.

Consumption of less energy doesn’t just help to lower electric bills and save you money in the process, it also helps to protect the world’s fragile environment.

Interior Lighting

The Maytag upright 15.8 Cu. Ft. and Maytag upright 20.1 Cu. Ft. freezers come with bright, 40-watt interior lighting.

This makes it easy to play detective with tiny food packets that are intent on playing an ill-timed game of hide and seek with you.

Sturdy Construction

Both the 15.8 and 20.1 Cu. Ft. Maytag upright freezers have textured steel cabinets and doors, virtually assuring you of many years of reliable service.

The liners in both models are rust- and impact-resistant. This means that the freezers won’t buckle under the weight of frozen food.

So with their sizable capacities, you can load them with your favorite food with abandon.

Manufacturer’s Warranty

Understandably, warranty information weighs heavily in high-cost, big-ticket purchases such as freezers...

Well, in the case of the Maytag freezer uprights, the manufacturers undertake to remedy, within a year of purchase, defective parts and workmanship that existed when the appliance was purchased. So be sure to keep your receipt.

For the warranty to hold though, the upright freezer has to be used for single-family household use so using any of these freezers for commercial uses voids the warranty.

Where to Buy Maytag Upright Freezers

To Recap...

Medium to large capacities, handy food organization tools that include wire shelves and deep door shelves, adjustable temperature control...

Frost-free configuration, energy efficiency, bright interior lighting, upfront controls, and a reversible swing door.

These features are all encapsulated in durable textured steel cabinets.
