A household storage brand in the region has debuted two products to help consumers store large quantities of food and beverages for entertaining.

Gladiator, a brand of Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool Corporation, said last month it rolled out two new appliances called Upright Freezer and All Refrigerator.

Allison Gillespie, brand manager for Gladiator, said the products are “perfect appliances for those looking to store excess food and beverages” while entertaining friends and family.

“While buying groceries in bulk is a necessity for a large family, caterer or someone looking to host a party, finding the space to store them can be challenging,” Gillespie said.

“We are now able to offer a way to store large quantities, while also adding in an immeasurable amount of convenience, thanks to the stainless-steel foot pedal.”

Upright Freezer features

— Stainless-steel foot pedal for opening the door hands-free

— 17.8 cubic feet of storage space

— Two adjustable, heavy-gauge wire shelves for holding frozen foods

— Compartments including a “pizza zone” and door bins
