Refrigerators and freezers are very personal choices. Some chefs use their freezers a lot but Bernstein chose her Viking refrigerator with a bottom freezer because "I need more fridge, I don't freeze much besides sorbets and doughs I make." Ponzek, who has three children, has solved her refrigerator needs by having a Sub-Zero side-by-side in the kitchen and a smaller refrigerator outside of the kitchen where she stores extra half-gallons of milk and juice, along with wine and other extras until they're needed. She says the second fridge is "great for chilling drinks for parties when the main one is full of desserts."
