Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a freezer take to get cold?

It will usually take five to ten hours for freezers to reach optimum temperature. Of course, this can vary, especially when it comes to small or slimline freezers.

Remember, after buying a new freezer, you should first let it settle for 1-4 hours, before plugging it in.

How much does a freezer cost to run?

Exactly how much it costs to run a freezer will depend on the energy efficiency of the model. For example, small or chest freezers are more energy efficient while American style fridge freezers tend to use more electricity.

How long will food last in a freezer without power?

Food will last for around 24 hours in a half full freezer that has lost power and 48 hours in a full freezer. Be sure to keep the door closed during this time, and be prepared to mop up the area if the ice inside your model begins to melt. You should also be careful because certain foods should not be re-frozen once thawed.

Can you put glass in the freezer?

Usually, putting glass in a freezer will cause it to crack. However, freezer-safe glass, such as tempered glass, should be safe to put in your freezer.

What temperature should a freezer be?

A freezer should be kept at around -18°C but most freezers have temperature settings from -16°C to -24°C. If you have just turned your freezer on for the first time, be sure to check the temperature before putting food in it.

How long does it take to defrost a freezer?

How long it takes to defrost a freezer will depend on its size, as well as the thickness of the ice inside. Usually, it takes 2-3 hours, though with particularly thick ice it can take up to 24 hours. Remember, a frost free freezer does not need to be defrosted in the same way as other models.
