White Kenmore 11.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer
I love Sears appliances!

A growing list of what freezes well.
We advocate cooking meats and freezing them to provide you with more free timetime. Imagine making a casserole and instead of having to dice onions, celery, carrots or cook meat you can just pull it out of the freezer and dump it in. It could save you up to 45 minutes (thawing meat, cooking meat and cleaning dishes used to cook and thaw). So now a casserole that did take 50 minutes to prepare now takes 5 minutes! What a blessing!!!! So here is our ever growing list of what freezes!

Freezes Well
(Keep in mind the veggies mentioned below are to be cooked in casseroles, roasts etc.... and not to be used in fresh applications such as salads!)
  • All sorts of cooked meat except fish
  • onions
  • celery
  • bell peppers
  • carrots
  • uncooked but prepared pies
  • peaches
  • pineapples
  • cheese (shred it first or buy it shredded) package in 1/2 increments
  • mashed potatoes (you have to microwave these immediately if you let them defrost they get runny!)
  • milk (you have to let it melt completely on its own to reconstitute)
  • bread (but only for about 30-45 days)
Does not freeze well
  • Sour Cream (seperates)
