freezerless refrigerator

Don’t waste precious space with a freezer. If you have more fresh foods to keep cold, consider a freezerless refrigerator.

I have done a big grocery run and then tried to put a week’s worth of groceries for my family of five in the fridge but didn’t have enough room to keep it refrigerated. Have you ever had this problem? I know in the summer when my garden is producing adding my normal groceries on top of the fresh producte doesn’t usually leave me with a lot of spare room. Currently, I have a side-by-side refrigerator, and I have wondered if I really need to have a freezer as a part of my refrigerator. There is now a refrigerator that is exactly that— a freezerless refrigerator.

Just like the name implies, this is a refrigerator that does not have a freezer area. This is ideal for people and families who like to have a lot of fresh food and don’t mind having a chest freezer for what they need to freeze. Some people don’t need to freeze anything at all. They won’t need to have a chest freezer.

Benefits of a freezerless refrigerator

The great thing about having a freezerless refrigerator is all the room that you get. There is no space wasted on doors and walls between the refrigerated and freezer sections. The entire space is used for fresh food, and you have plenty of room to fit it all in. If you have a garden, frequent the farmer’s market, or enjoy buying in bulk, this refrigerator would be perfect to help you have enough room.

Many of the models are energy efficient, making it cheaper to have a freezerless refrigerator and a chest freezer than to have a two regular refrigerators. This is important to consider as energy bills can get quite expensive.

Downside of a freezerless refrigerator

Since there is no freezer section there is no ice dispenser. For some this is a necessity and might be the decision maker on whether or not to get this. Also, the price is a factor when you add in that you need a separate upright or chest freezer if you want to be able to have frozen items at your home.


Freezerless Refrigerators cost between $650-$3000, and you also need to take into consideration that you will might a chest freezer, too. Chest freezers cost between $100-$600, so that will add into the overall price.

Final Decision

This may be for you if the need for the extra refrigeration is there and you find a good deal. Otherwise you will probably be just as content with a side-by-side or French door refrigerator. It just depends on how your family eats. If you have a freezerless refrigerator we would love for you to come back and review your refrigerator at
