One of the common problems that people have with freezer compartments is that they are too shallow to store larger frozen items such as cakes and whole chunks of meats. To solve this, the Bosch KGN56XI40 has a BigBox frozen food drawer for you to store all the frozen food needed to host your gatherings.
Not only does this large compartment allow you to store bigger items like cakes and whole turkeys, the clear glass dividers can also easily be removed and installed for better organisation depending on your storage needs.
