The Maytag MXF34X16DW is an upright freezer with a compact design that maximizes internal space. It has five full-length door shelves with plenty of space for storing your favorite frozen food that you want easy access to. The bottom shelf has a built-in storage gate to hold food like turkey, ham and other large items in place so they don’t slide out when you open the door. It has three shelves that are adjustable so you can configure your freezer space in a way that works best for you.
This is 15.7-cubic-foot freestanding freezer with a reversible door. This is an uncommon feature for most products in our upright freezer reviews. It is also more compact than many of the other freezers. This gives it a lot more flexibility when it comes to placing it in your available space. You can orient the door to open to the left or the right, according to the layout of your kitchen, garage or basement.
This Maytag freezer has nice temperature control features such a frost-free design and a fast freeze option. The frost-free design automatically adjusts the temperature when it senses there is a build-up of ice so you don’t have to worry about taking the food out and defrosting it yourself. The fast freeze option drops the freezer to its lowest temperature for up to 24 hours to freeze foods like ice cream more thoroughly. The temperature controls are on the inside, which is not ideal because you’ll have to adjust them with the door open, but they are in a convenient, easy-to-reach location.
This freezer is not ENERGY STAR-certified but is still relatively energy efficient. The Frigidaire freezer uses less power and is a little bigger as well. It comes with a one-year warranty as well as a 10-year limited parts warranty on the compressor. This Maytag is a compact, versatile freezer with a reversible door that lets you make the best use of external space, and adjustable shelves for customizing the internal space. It has a frost-free design so you don’t have frost building up. The well-designed door shelves give you plenty of space to organize the foods you want quick access to. The temperature controls are inside, but they’re easy to reach. This is a great freezer with some nice extras.
