They're like those celebrity couples you never really imagined going solo: The reliable old kitchen freezer has split from the refrigerator and is now available on its own. And remodeling homeowners are snapping up different models in trend-setting numbers.
Sure, there are still plenty of side by side and top-mount freezer units available. But the "all freezer," available from companies as varied as Sub-Zero, Viking, Danby, Frigidaire and GE is popping up everywhere in undercounter, drawer and giant upright units.
If you've been bitten by the all freezer bug, take the benefits and shortfalls into consideration before choosing one for a remodel, says Justin Breckle, branch manager for Roth Concept Center in St. Louis.
