The Best Upright Freezer for Jars

If you prepare food in bulk, you may heavily rely on your freezer. I try to reduce my use of Ziploc bags and prefer to store most food in glass jars, even in the freezer.

After having a chest freezer for years (and not knowing what I had in the bottom of it!), I spent weeks researching upright freezers to find the best functionality for the price. I wanted the ease of organization from the upright style, which the chest freezer lacked.

Finally, I decided on the Frigidaire Upright Freezer from Lowe's, which had one distinct feature that the others didn't have.

Can you guess what it is?

My jars fit perfectly in the door shelves!

This freezer has extra deep door shelves, allowing both my Weck and Le Parfait jars (which are greater in diameter than mason jars) to fit. I can easily get five 1/2 L Weck jars across each shelf. The 1 liter jars also fit. I often store beans, single-serve soups, ketchup, barbeque sauce and pizza sauce in the door of this freezer.

Other Freezer Features

I also like the basket drawers for better organization. This is where I store butter, shredded cheese and frozen fruit. The shelves allow me to easily spot frozen foods in glass containers, and the top shelf is tall enough to store homemade bone broths in 1 L Weck Cylindrical jars.

If you mostly freeze food in glass containers, this freezer is very jar-friendly! And as a side note: Lowe's will honor a price adjustment within 30 days if the freezer goes on sale after you purchase it. Yay for extra savings!

Jar Tips

Some of my favorite jars for freezing fit perfetly in this upright freezer: Weck 1/2 L, Weck 3/4 L and Weck 1 L Cylindrical.
