Leave the chest units out of sight. Not that there s anything wrong with the reliable standby for freezing freshly caught fish the summer berry harvest or loads of casseroles for maternity leave. But chest freezers are just not attractive enough to look at in the kitchen so don t count on them as an integral part of your design.
"A pro fridge like a Sub-Zero is huge and it s really meant for people who need to store a lot of ingredients for constant cooking says Sue Adams."They do have better seals on the doors and compartments at different temps so different things won t spoil and special gaskets so odors won t go from one compartment to another.". But if you re not a fervent cook the big fridge is unnecessary she says."You can afford to let a lot of milk go sour for the difference in price between a Sub-Zero and a residential model she says. If you do opt for a Sub-Zero refrigerator Adams advises against the optional glass doors."Do you really want people to see inside your refrigerator?" she asks."And if all they d be seeing is your takeout boxes you may want to reconsider the purchase altogether."
