A good model of a walk-in freezer is one with a combination box, where there are freezer compartments as well as cooler compartments. The freezer is designed with its own door so that the warm air does not flow in from the cooking area. Cameras are available to monitor the interior spaces.

Consider these things to help you decide, think of what you intend to store in your refrigeration unit, visualize the number of shelves you need to store all your products, and imagine the area that you require for such storage. If your restaurant is not really big and you are particular with fresh meat and produce, then maybe you don’t really need a walk-in freezer. All you need is a chest freezer to store frozen desserts such as ice cream.

The floor should be insulated with four inches of insulation material. The old standard set by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for walk-in freezer floors was galvanized iron but it was replaced by steel, which is tougher but more expensive. As opposed to steel floors, one reason for the upgrade was that galvanized floors are prone to rusts and dents, which is not sanitary for the storage of food products.

The luxury of freezing allows households to buy larger amounts of foods in bulk that do not have to be rushed to be eaten by the sell by date and can instead be eaten at leisure. The bulk purchase provides cost savings, but more importantly, ice-cream can be kept in them and other foods that would not be able to be stored without a freezer. Before freezers were available, ice-cream could previously only be enjoyed by travelling long distances to where the product was made fresh and had to be eaten on the spot. Now it can be enjoyed at any time. Ice on-demand not only adds to the enjoyment of cold drinks, but is useful in first-aid applications and cold packs can be kept frozen for picnics or in case of an emergency.

Most domestic appliance manufacturers provide chest freezers, but if it is specifically a Liebherr chest freezer that you are after, there are a few to choose from. All of the Liebherr chest freezers have an energy efficiency class of A+, to save money and keep tabs on your carbon footprint and only consume from 215.4 kWh to 408 kWh in 365 days.

Family Needs a Chest Freezer

As most home economists will state, it only makes sense to invest in a chest freezer that allows groceries to be purchased in bulk. When products are purchased in bulk, there are considerable savings so the freezers pay themselves off in the savings that are realized. This principle holds true for the single individual as well as large families. When meats go on sale, you are inclined to stock up, especially is the price is just right. Fruits and vegetables in season are much less costly when you can purchase in bulk and just do a little packaging and put them down in your chest freezer.

Economic down swings make the future uncertain and it is always a good idea to put in a stock of the foods you eat most, like frozen vegetables and meats for the dishes that are your favourites. Chest freezers come in several convenient sizes, from small apartment size to the large freezers that can hold up to a year’s worth of food! There is a correct size for your home no matter if you have a small space or have a pantry that the freezer will sit in.

Kitchen Freezer

One of the foremost appliance, that should be included in any kitchen, is a freezer. Make sure that when you are going over your remodel plan, you make room for a separate freezer in the kitchen.

I prefer the upright freezer to the chest type, but there is certainly a place for the kitchen freezer. The upright is built like a refrigerator with adjustable shelves. When certain fruits were in season, we would peel, pare and freeze and then eat our favorite fruits all year long. Great eating!! Blueberries or raspberries – any berry, we would wash and set on wax paper in the freezer with space between the berries so they would freeze as individual fruit. After the fruit was frozen, we would then package them in quart or pint-sized containers. You can begin to see why one freezer was sometimes not enough.
