Tips for Choosing the Right Single Door Commercial Freezer

Chef looking into freezer

When it comes to selecting a single door commercial freezer, there are several factors to consider. Whether you’re a home cook, a small business owner, or a professional chef, finding the right freezer can make a significant difference in your food storage and organization. Let’s look into the options and features to help you make an informed decision.

Types of Freezers

    • Design: Upright freezers open like a refrigerator and come with shelves and storage drawers. This design helps you stay organized and track your frozen items easily.
    • Features:
      • Available in both manual defrost and frost-free configurations.
      • Vary in size from 4.7 cu. ft. to 24.7 cu. ft.
      • Take up less floor space.
      • Lighted interior for easy visibility.
      • Energy-efficient (manual defrost models).
    • Placement: Consider where you’ll place the unit and how much food you plan to keep in it.
    • Design: Chest freezers open from the top like a trunk or suitcase. They hold slightly more food per cubic foot than upright freezers.
    • Features:
      • Available as manual defrost units.
      • Range in size from 3.6 cu. ft. to 25.0 cu. ft.
      • Lower price tags.
      • Lift-out drawers and sliding baskets for organization.
      • Energy-efficient (tight door seal during power failures).
    • Placement: Consider floor space and proximity to a drain for water management.

Considerations for Choosing a Single Door Commercial Freezer

  1. Capacity: Determine how much food you plan to store. Choose a size that meets your needs without wasting energy.
  2. Energy Efficiency: Look for Energy Star-rated models to save on electricity costs.
  3. Placement: Consider where you’ll place the freezer (garage, kitchen, etc.) and whether you need a reversible door.
  4. Features: Check for external temperature controls, glass shelving, and additional perks like temperature alarms.
  5. Budget: Decide on your budget and compare features within that range.
