Benefits and Attributes Associated with a Chest Freezer

By Nicholas Williams Subscribe to RSS | February 14th 2012 | Views:

A chest freezer is a free-standing kitchen appliance which features a significant amount of space for frozen food storage. Many homeowners consider purchasing a chest freezer as an alternative to investing in a refrigerator with a larger freezer compartment. The biggest advantage of having a commercial chest freezer is that the bulkier food items can be stored in it and thereby leaving ample amount of space in refrigerator's freezer section for other small items.

A chest freezer is one of the two commercially available freezer for sale; the other being an upright freezer. Both types have their own specific strengths and weaknesses, depending on your needs. There are a few important differences between the two which are as follows:

• A chest freezer has a box-like design with a lid running along the top, while upright freezers resemble a traditional fridge with a front-mounted door.

• An upright freezer has horizontal shelves for storing your food and they can be accessed by simply opening the freezer door. A chest freezer, on the other hand, will require you to ‘stack’ your food vertically. This sometimes can make the items stored at the bottom, less accessible.

• A commercial chest freezer may even come with removable baskets that can be lifted out for easier access which is a feature that is unavailable in upright freezers.

• Chest freezers can be as small as 1.3 cubic feet and are a space-saving alternative to upright freezers models at 12.0 cubic feet.

A good commercial chest freezer has features like temperature control and audible alarms to warn the user of the temperature getting to higher levels. One of the rare downsides of the chest freezers is that they require manual defrosting.

Before purchasing one from a firm having more than one type of freezer for sale, it is essential to decide the place where will it be placed in the home. Generally a chest freezer is put at one of the two places in a home: the kitchen or the store room. The choice depends on your needs of storage and accessibility. If you wish to just store items for a longer term and do not intend to access it frequently, the store room is the perfect choice as it will save space in the kitchen.

However, generally people tend to use the freezer to store food items for daily and frequent use. This necessitates frequent access and hence it makes sense to keep the freezer in the kitchen.
