Let's say you’ve decided to buy a freezer Ibis month — during the traditional weeks for bargains in this major appliance. You’ve studied the cold-blooded appraisal iii yesterday’s column of how and how much you must use the freezer in order for it to be a money-saver for you. tint no matter. Tilt* many conveniences of tilt' freezer, not the possibilities of saving money, are the prime factors to you. Here, therefore, are the basic points to ponder when you are considering this purchase Decide in advance whether an upright or chest model t^ best for you. The chest type requires more floor space, and it is lese convenient because much unloading and rearranging are required to get food in and out on a proper rotation plan designed to eliminate spoilage. However, this type gives you extra counter space on which to work, accumulates less frost, maintains more even temperatures for longer storage times, and uses about half as much electricity as an uprighi freezer Advantages: Of Upright The upright takes less floor space and is easier to defrost, hut >may cost $10 to $30 more than a chest-tvpe freezer Decide also what size freezer is adequate and appropriate for your family. Today’s freezers come with capacities ranging from three to 31 cubic feet, but the most popular models have 12 to 17 cubic feet of storage space The general rule is you’ll want three to four cubic feet for each member of your family and five or six per person if you have a vegetable garden and thus do a lot of home freezing or if you shop only every IO days or every two weeks. Be sure to have adequate space for — and a sturdy floor under — your freezer When full, this appliance can weigh as much as half a ton. Set a budget for your freezer. This year. price tags range from about $175 for a no-frills 12 cubic foot freezer to $251) to $270 for a IO to 17 cubic foot model, and $300 lo $400 for a luxury 17 to IR cubic foot, frost-free model. Decide On Extras Decide which extras you reallv want and need Frost-free (self-defrosting) freezers are considerably more convenient Purchase Given than models you must defrost yourself But you'll pay $50 lo $1)0 more for this feature A selfdefrosting freezer also costs substantially more to operate than a standard upright model, and nearly three times as much as a manual defrost chest Similarly, a “flash defroster” feature may cut defrosting time to 15 minute's lait you’ll pay $30 or sd extra for this saving of time. Among tin' other extras which you can get — at a price — when you buy a freezer today are An interior light, a special fast-freezing compartment; a warning signal showing a dangerous temperature rise or power cutoff, special baskets. trays and racks for storage, a built-in door lock Investigate Warranty Find out — before you buy a freezer — whether there is a warrants and exact Iv what it covers Does it cover lust repairs for the freezer? Or also, your losses in food spoilage if and wiic'ii the freezer breaks down ’ And who will honer the warranty ? Take special care lo investigate' tin' reliability of the' dealer before you buy — for if and w hen a freezer breaks down. ii must he repaired within 24 hours if you are to avoid losing your entire investment in its contents Your dealer will be of critical importance at that time. Be on guard against a major trap associated with buying and owning a home freezer: The dishonest “freezer food plan" under which, when you buy a freezer, you also sign up for regular purchases of bargain-priced foods to put iii it The savings on the food, high-pressure salesmen say. will pay for* the freezer itself. In effect, you’ll get the freezer “free.” Obligated To Pay But if you commit yourself to such a deal and it turns out to be a enme-on. you well may discover that you are obligated to pay a grossly inflated price for the' freezer as well as grossly expensive finance c harge's on the1 installment loan you ns(' to make the purchase'. Tile freezer may he much larger and more expensive* to operate than your family really needs. The seller may fail to deliver the promised fold on the promised timetable or may substitute inferior foods or whatever The guarantee may turn out to ht> worthless Beware signing up for any food freezer plan until you check out the contract, prices, guarantee's, etc., with utmost care.
