Essentials of a commercial chest freezer

The freezer type gets its name from the typical design and layout of the unit, which is essentially a traditional chest that sits on the ground and is accessed through a hatch at the top.

As summer temperatures rise, it appears that refrigeration issues are an all-too-common accessory to the summer heat. It's not your imagination, either. In the summer, your refrigerated units must work harder. However, by selecting the right model of a commercial chest freezer for your specific business and commercial requirements, you can better utilize your commercial reach-in.

Commercial hard top freezer units allow you to purchase food and other products in bulk and store them until you are ready to use them. You can keep the stored items fresh, avoid food wastage and also be able to carefully plan further food purchases for your business, making the most of your meals and making food preparation easier.

To get the most out of your chest freezer, you must first find a model that best suits the commercial needs of your establishment, as well as the availability and configuration of interior space. Although most of the chest freezers are rectangular in shape, however, some more compact models are shaped like a cube.

We stock and sell both rectangular and cubic chest freezers from major brands available in Australia, including ICS Pacific, Atosa, and Exquisite.

PROs and CONs of a chest freezer

Temperature stability

Because a chest freezer lacks a self-defrost system, the temperature remains constant.

Reduces the possibility of freezer burn

Because air circulates less in a chest freezer than in a vertical upright freezer, the risk of freezer burn is lower.

More storage space is available

Because of the simplicity of the interior, chest freezers have roughly 20% more space which you can utilize for storage as compared to the vertical counterparts. They are more effective in an emergency. For example, a chest freezer will help to keep your products frozen longer than any other typical home or commercial vertical freezer in the event of a power outage.

Organizing a chest freezer is complex

It's more challenging to organize and find food in a chest freezer without searching for and moving the items around.

Overly simplistic in operation

Chest freezers serve a single purpose. This can be a disadvantage for those who require a freezer for specialty cooking or specialized commercial purposes.

Space requirements

While you may have more usable space, chest freezers require more space. A 22-cubic-foot chest freezer, for example, would require a floor space of 600mm by 1800mm, which may make a chest freezer unit unsuitable for most interiors.

Features to consider before purchasing a unit

There is no simple "Yes" or "No" answer when purchasing a hard top deep freezer. You'll need to consider more than one factor in order to select a commercial chest freezer that meets all your refrigeration and storage requirements.

Defrost Capability of a unit

Defrosting your freezer is a task you will have to face from time to time, so choose a freezer unit that is not too complicated to defrost. You can look for extra features to help you with this, such as auto-defrost capability.

Damage to food items is rare

You want to buy a freezer unit in order to keep your food items fresh and usable for longer. That said, you'd never want your chest freezer to end up ruining the food it was supposed to keep safe. This is possible with some freezer units due to freezer burn and frosting that destroy the food stored inside. The design of a chest freezer, on the other hand, makes this less likely.

Additional features of a particular model

Commercial hard top deep freezer or high-end models frequently include extra features to go with your unit. Consider your requirements and the features that are essential to your commercial needs and the most important to you.

Because of the configuration of a chest freezer's door, a feature like an auto-lock is probably unnecessary. However, in the case of hard top chest freezers, the unit remains securely closed due to the lid's weight.

On the other hand, an interior light is a valuable addition because it makes it easier to sort through the contents to find what you need.

Other valuable features include a power-on indicator and an alarm that warns you if the unit's internal temperature rises to critical levels.
