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.

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.

When Are Most New Freezers Released?

January to March is the most common period for new freezers to be released in. For the latest freezer features you may want to think about waiting until January 2021. Also the price of the current freezers may drop off just before the latest models are released in January. Last year most new freezers were released in January, with 12 new freezers released that month. March was the biggest month in 2018 for new freezers, with 65 new freezers released that month. 99 new freezers were released in January 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new freezer releases.

How Fast Do Freezer Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, freezers drop in price by 4% on average.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $14 on a typical $339 new freezer 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 60L to 110L. The Russell Hobbs RHCF292B, which can be purchased for $430.31, has the highest freezer net capacity and is a 292L capacity freezer. The Igenix IG6751, which sells for $387.24, has the lowest freezer net capacity and is a 34L 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.

We found 1,502 freezers that are upright freezers, which makes upright the most common type amongst new freezers. Chest is the second most common type amongst new freezers. We found 651 freezers that are chest 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 available at $599.00. The Igenix IG6751, which sells for $387.24, has the narrowest width and is a 440mm wide freezer.

Heights

Comparing all freezers, the heights range from 470mm to 2,150mm. The freezer with the tallest height is the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142B, which is a 1,420mm high freezer and sells for $400.15. The freezer with the shortest height is the Igenix IG6751, which is a 510mm high freezer and is priced at $387.24.

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 frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers. We found 1,184 freezers that have an energy efficiency rating of A+. A++ is the second most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers. We found 545 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.
