If you have room in your garage or basement, a chest freezer can increase your frozen food storage capacity by a considerable amount. A deep freezer will give you ample storage space for everything from cool treats to reheatable eats. You will save money at the grocery store because you can load up on bulk, freezeable items to last you for weeks. Deep freezers are ideal for storing large portions of frozen items like fruits, ice cream, vegetables and meat. A smart investment for folks who love to cook; the freezer, when used to its full potential, can help you with homemade and healthy meals instead of ordering take out.
If you’d like to add a stand-alone deep freezer to your home, here’s what to look for when buying one.
- Upright freezers: Popular for the convenience they offer, upright freezers can be easily moved and don’t take up too much space. They come equipped with compartment dividers that keep your food organised in a manner that suits you best. They will take up less floor space but will need a clear wall.
- Glass top chest freezer: A chest freezer has a deep centre to hold in a large amount of frozen food, but without dividers and baskets, you could be diving down into your freezer to take something out. Most chest freezers have customisable interiors with plastic dividers that you can move around to suit your organisational style. They have extra door racks and interior shelves so that you can arrange your frozen food as per your convenience.
The deep freezer helps you maintain a large number of food items at a specific temperature. Large households that like to buy in bulk to save; growers that want to ensure their garden produce can last longer, eateries that regularly find themselves with large quantities of meat/frozen foods to keep fresh; bar owners who want to keep crates of drinks cool – all find that they need the extra space that is provided by a deep freezer.
Make sure to choose a freezer that has a good energy rating. Look for a chest freezer with an Energy Star label as they will use less electricity and are environmentally-friendly. If you choose to keep your chest freezer in your basement or garage, you should ensure that the basement has a cooler, more climate-controlled environment so that the freezer will run efficiently there.
Before buying a freezer, consider the size of your household and allocated space. For a small family, a freezer with 50 to 150 litres of storage space is an ideal choice as you can easily store a week’s worth of food.
Tip: One should avoid empty space in the freezer as this will leave more room for warm air, and the freezer will use more energy to maintain cool temperatures.
