Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between 'net' and 'gross' capacity?
AYou see 2 capacities used for fridges and freezers - gross capacity refers to the total inside capacity of the appliance, while net capacity is the total *usable* capacity, after discounting the volume taken up by shelves, plastic moulding, etc.
QWhat is the average noise level of a freezer?
AThe average noise of a freezer is around 40Db, making it very quiet indeed, and hardly noticeable, even in a quiet kitchen.
QWhat does 'freezing capacity' mean?
AFreezing capacity refers to the volume of food that the freezer is capable of freezing in a set period. The larger the amount, the more quickly it will be frozen.
QWhat is a 'chest freezer'?
AChest freezers are lower, wider freezers with the lid mounted on the top rather than at the front. This horizontal arrangement allows for more food to be stored, and larger individual items to fit into the freezer. However there are normally fewer compartments, and the freezer itself takes up far more floor space.

Freezer Buying Guide

Capacity

A dedicated freezer is ideal for families that need to store large quantities of frozen food. Often they can be combined with a matching fridge to create a huge fridge freezer combined of two appliances placed next to each other. They key is to make sure that the freezer door is reversible, which will allow your combined fridge freezer unit doors to both open from the middle.

Advances in insulation technology have allowed freezer manufacturers to increase the available space inside modern freezer units. The biggest upright freezers have over 350 litres of internal storage and the largest chest freezer can have nearly 600 litres of internal storage - that's enough to store three supermarket shopping trolleys full of food!

Frost Free Interior

Older freezers and some budget models require periodic defrosting which means switching the freezer off, removing all the food, and catching all the thawing ice in a tray. This is necessary to prevent excessive frost build up inside the freezer and to keep it operating efficiently.

Many freezers have frost free technology. This means that no defrosting is required and the freezer will not frost up over time. They work by controlling the humidity level inside the freezer to prevent frost particles from forming.

Easy Access Drawers

Some freezers come with easy to access pull out drawers. Transparent draw fronts make it easy to see what's stored inside and smooth sliding rails make pulling the drawer out effortless. Look out for deep drawer sizes which can be useful for storing bulky items.

loading image

Ice Makers

Built in ice makers are available in some stand alone freezers. Commonly they make the ice in one of the drawers which can then be pulled out and used.

Most automatic ice makers will normally need a plumbed water connection within 1.5m of the freezer. Some freezers may have simpler, semi automatic ice makers that you must fill manually.

Other Features

LED Lighting: These low energy bulbs create bright illumination of all parts of your freezer and produce a very low level of heat.

Rapid Freezing: Rapid freezing lets you temporarily increase the freezing rate of the freezer so that new items freeze more quickly.

Variable Speed Compressors: Multiple speed settings lets the compressor run quietly in normal operation and also creates more consistent internal temperatures.

Digital Controls: Digital temperature controls let you set the internal temperature of the freezer precisely and are easier to use than vague temperature dials.

Warning Alarms: An alarm will sound if the freezer door has accidentally been left open or if the internal temperature of the freezer is too high.

Soft Close Doors: The freezer door gently closes itself as you push the door shut.

Installation Tips

It's best to measure the space that your freezer is to fit in several times to make sure that you don't make a mistake. In determining whether the freezer will fit you should consider the freezer door hinge position and the space required for the thickness of the freezer door when it is opened. Don't forget about the size of any openings or staircases that the freezer will have to pass through to get it to the installation location.

The air temperature around the freezer is important for optimal operation. Most freezers are designed to work inside a heated room, so don't install your freezer in a outbuilding unless it is specifically designed for that purpose. You should also ensure adequate ventilation to the rear of the freezer.

Once your freezer has been delivered you should leave it standing upright for 4 hours before switching it on if it was transported horizontally. If it was transported vertically then standing for 1 hour should be sufficient.

Biggest Freezer Retailers

The biggest freezer retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 24 current freezer offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Overstock with 6 offers. That means eBay is over 4 times bigger than Overstock when it comes to freezers. Walmart is the third biggest retailer with 2 current offers.

When Are Most New Freezers Released?

Most new freezers tend to be released between January and March. If you wait until January 2020 then you might be able to get better features on your freezer. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current freezers tend to drop off when the next models are released. March was the biggest month in 2018 for new freezers, with 63 new freezers released that month. The biggest month in 2017 for new freezer releases was January, with 101 new freezers released that month. 154 new freezers were released in October 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new freezer releases.

How Fast Do Freezer Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, freezers drop in price by 3%.

That means that on a typical freezer costing $370 you could save on average $13 by waiting 6 months before buying.

Freezer Net Capacities

'Freezer Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the freezer, measured in litres.

Comparing all freezers, the freezer net capacities range from 22L to 1,079L. The freezer net capacities of most freezers range from 70L to 120L. The Frigidaire FFFH17F2QW, which is available at $826.62, has the highest freezer net capacity and is a 453L capacity freezer. The Russell Hobbs RHUCFZ3W, which is on sale for $191.30, has the lowest freezer net capacity and is a 68L capacity freezer.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Types

The freezer 'type' refers to the type of case design and whether it is standalone or designed to be integrated into a kitchen.

The most frequently found type amongst new freezers is upright. We found 1,461 freezers that are upright freezers. We found 616 freezers that are chest freezers, making this the second most popular type amongst new freezers.

Widths

Comparing all freezers, the widths range from 350mm to 1,861mm. The freezer with the widest width is the GE FCM11PHWW, which is a 1,289mm wide freezer and is priced at $379.00. The Russell Hobbs RHUCFZ3W, which sells for $191.30, has the narrowest width and is a 501mm wide freezer.

Heights

Across the range of freezers, the heights range from 470mm to 2,150mm. The Whirlpool UW8F2, which currently retails for $759.09, has the tallest height and is a 1,875mm high freezer. The freezer with the shortest height is the AEG ABB68211AF, which is an 815mm high freezer and can be purchased for $864.74.

Energy Efficiency of Freezers

The Energy Efficiency Class of a freezer shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

A+ is the most common energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers. We found 1,106 freezers that have an energy efficiency rating of A+. The second most common energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers is A++. We found 532 freezers that have an energy efficiency rating of A++.

A freezer with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.
