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

loading image

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 34 current freezer offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Overstock with 6 offers. That means eBay is over 5 times bigger than Overstock when it comes to freezers. Walmart is the third biggest retailer with 6 current offers.

When Are Most New Freezers Released?

The most common period for new freezers to be released in is between January and March. That means that most of the latest freezer technology was released in within the last 3 months, and now is good time to buy. Last year most new freezers were released in January, with four new freezers released that month. In March 2018, 66 new freezers were released making it the biggest month that year for new freezer releases. 99 new freezers were released in January 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new freezer releases.

A typical new freezer costs on average $567. By waiting 6 months before buying you could save on average $20.

Freezer Net Capacities

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

The freezer net capacities of freezers range from 22L to 1,079L. The freezer net capacities of the majority of freezers range from 70L to 120L. The freezer with the highest freezer net capacity is the Frigidaire FFFH17F2QW, which is a 453L capacity freezer and is available at $482.95. The freezer with the lowest freezer net capacity is the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B, which is a 31L capacity freezer and sells for $130.47.

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.

Upright is the most popular type amongst new freezers. We found 1,450 freezers that are upright freezers. Chest is the second most popular type amongst new freezers. We found 615 freezers that are chest freezers.

The widths of freezers 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 $739.20. The freezer with the narrowest width is the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B, which is a 480mm wide freezer and currently retails for $130.47.

Heights

The heights of freezers range from 470mm to 2,150mm. The freezer with the tallest height is the Whirlpool UW8F2, which is a 1,875mm high freezer and is available at $802.45. The freezer with the shortest height is the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B, which is a 500mm high freezer and can be purchased for $130.47.

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.

We found 1,122 freezers that have an energy efficiency rating of A+, which makes this the most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers. A++ is the second most frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new freezers. We found 523 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.
