Welcome to the
My daughter Melissa broke the third and final drawer on our fridge-freezer a couple of days back and as I berated her for trying to open it from the middle using one hand - thus putting too much pressure on the plastic, (rather than using one hand at each front corner of the drawer) she berated me for keep overfilling the thing.
It all ended in a draw but created some useful discussion in the meantime:
Why do manufacturers make freezer doors from such easily breakable plastic?
The second part of the useful discussion revolved around the apparent lack of very tall fridge-freezers - ones that almost reach the ceiling:
Why isn't there an abundance of these appliances on the market?
I'm sure I'm not alone in being unable to fit everything I want to in my own freezer and I'll bet I'm one of many thousands with cracked or broken freezer drawers.
Two alternatives are buying an American style fridge-freezer or having a second fridge-freezer somewhere in the home. I for one don't have the space for a wider appliance and nor do I have room for a second one. I do, however, have plenty of empty space on top of mine - which currently I have to regularly clean! I could so put that space to better use by having it filled with a few more freezer drawers and beneath them, a larger, more user-friendly and far easier to clean fridge!
How about it?
