Frigidaire Freezers

A solid and reliable name in freezers

Frigidaire is and always has been one of the innovators in the refrigeration industry. Frigidaire was originally known as The Guardian Refrigerator Company, and changed its name to the Frigidaire Corporation in 1919. Frigidaire is the largest manufacturer of residential freezers and was one of the first companies to sell a self-defrosting chest freezer.

In 1979, Frigidaire was acquired by White Consolidated Industries, which also owned Westinghouse appliances. Since 1994, it has been a unit of Electrolux. Brands now operated by Frigidaire include Kelvinator, White-Westinghouse, Tappan and Gibson.

Frigidaire also manufactures freezers for Kenmore and GE, which is why you may see similarities between the brands.

Frigidaire has an extensive array of affordable freezers and refrigerator freezers available.

Upright freezers

There are 13 upright models to choose from, from 8.7 to 20.6 cubic feet in size. Frost-free and manual defrost options are also available. Other features that may be available include:

  • adjustable temperature control
  • extreme freeze (allows you to freeze food quickly to seal in freshness and flavor)
  • door ajar alarm
  • interior light
  • power-on light
  • interior shelves
  • baskets and basket dividers
  • door bins
  • defrost drain (in manual defrost models)
  • security lock
  • ice maker

Twelve of the 13 upright freezer models come only in white, with only one available in stainless steel. Prices range between $350 and $1050 (manufacturer's suggested retail price).

Chest freezers

Because chest freezers are more utilitarian in nature, there aren't as many features or variations. Frigidaire offers 8 models that range between 5 and 25 cubic feet in size. The majority of the models are manual defrost, with only one model being frost-free. Other features that may be available include:

  • adjustable temperature control
  • power-on light
  • interior light
  • storage baskets and basket dividers
  • security lock
  • temperature alarm system

Because chest freezers are more utilitarian in nature, the only color available is white. Prices range between $230 and $800 (manufacturer's suggested retail price).

Frigidaire also offers a limited one-year warranty on all their new models.

Frigidaire is a brand that's well-known and trusted by the general public. Its history of innovation has stuck with the brand incredibly well, and user reviews are favorable.
