How to Buy a Deep Freezer


Need a deep freezer? Here’s how to buy the best.

A deep freezer is a great appliance to have in any home; it gives you extra storage for perishable goods that are for emergency or long-term use only, rather than weekly meals. Are you ready to figure out how to buy a deep freezer? There is more to the choice than you might think. It’s a good thing you’re here!

How to Buy a Deep Freezer

Chest vs. Upright Freezer

You have the choice between a chest freezer and an upright freezer. We’ll go over the benefits and best uses of each.

Benefits and uses for chest freezers would be:

  • Large capacity models available
  • Possibility to transform into regular fridge
  • Cold air stays at the bottom
  • Preserves food longer during a power outage
  • Store bulk foods
  • Store home-grown foods

Benefits and uses for upright freezers are the following:

  • Easily access produce on shelves and in drawers
  • Takes up less floor space
  • Comes with automatic defroster
  • Stainless steel finish available
  • Store long-term meal preparations
  • Store home-grown foods

Deep Freezer Placement & Size

The most popular places to set your deep freezer would be the kitchen, the garage, the basement, or another utilitarian space out of the way of main living areas.

When choosing the size, ensure that your freezer can make it through your doors. Sizes you can choose from are: compact, small, medium, and large. They are determined by cubic feet. You can determine the best size for your household by multiplying the number of people in your house by 2.5 (cubic feet.)

Deep Freezer Features

Next, it’s time to decide on what features you’d like your deep freezer to have. It can have the following features:

  • Interior lighting
  • Automatic defrosting
  • Locking
  • Fast freezing
  • Energy efficiency
  • Storage features
  • Garage-ready

Deep Freezer Cost

Chest freezers can cost between $500 and $1,500, while upright freezers cost between $700-$2,500. If you are set on either the chest or upright model, you can go cheaper via size and features.
