Which freezer to choose

There are several types of freezers that are designed for home and shops, cafes and hotels. To choose the right one, carefully study their differences.

Freezer cabinet

Externally, the vertical cabinet is very similar to the refrigerator. Its height can vary from 65 cm to 2 m. With its impressive dimensions it occupies very little space.

Inside the cabinet is divided into hermetic boxes. In them, you can store different products, because the smells stay inside and do not mix with each other. Boxes for freezers are made of durable and high-quality plastic.

In the range you can find combined models - with shelves and drawers. It's worth saying that such cabinets are not very popular because of the smells that can be absorbed and spread. Agree, it's unpleasant to get apples with the aroma of fish from the freezer.

The models of such freezers are divided into several types:

  1. Closet with sliding door.
  2. With a dead door. This option can be called standard.
  3. With glass transparent door.
  4. Two-door. The doors open like a cabinet or cabinet.

Freezer chest

The difference between the chest is that it is placed horizontally and somewhat resembles a chest. The top cover acts as the door. The volume of the chest is larger than that of the cabinet, but it needs more space. In freezers there are no sealed boxes, so it is not recommended to store meat and vegetables nearby, even if they are packed. Instead of boxes inside there are trellised containers that can be quickly and easily removed.

Freezer showcase

Freezer showcasehas glass doors. In some models, the doors move apart, while in others they go up. Storefronts are usually used in shops and trading rooms so that buyers can see the goods.

All cameras are divided into medium temperature and low temperature. The former are used for cooling drinks, sweets and dairy products. In the low-temperature store semi-finished products, meat, fish, vegetables or fruit.

The best manufacturers of glass freezers are: Liebherr, Electrolux, Beko, Samsung, Stinol, Dexp, Biryusa, Polair and Beko.

Other types of freezers

In addition to households, there are several more varieties:

  1. Industrial. They are used in enterprises, for ice-cream meat or semi-finished products.
  2. Confectioneries. They store cakes, ice cream and other sweets. Such showcases are available for cafes, restaurants and shops.
  3. Bar. These models are widely used in hotels, offices and bars, thanks to their compact size and quiet operation. The doors can be transparent with glass or metal blinds.
  4. Professional. Such cameras are used in the kitchens of large restaurants. One of the best is Liebher GGU 1550.


When choosing a camera, one of the main roles is played by volume: small, medium or large. But you need to remember that a common and useful volume are completely different things. Especially when it comes to technology with the No Frost system, which takes up a lot of space.

If freezing of large volumes of products is not needed, then a family of several people will have a device of 150 liters.

Built-in or detached

If the cabinet is purchased separately from the kitchen set, the preference is usually given to a detached one. Most often, built-in models can be found among small and medium-sized freezers. Sometimes they are built under the countertop at the level of the dishwasher and washing machine. For small kitchens, this design is a real find.

Which is better: a chest or a freezer

The cabinet will save considerable space, especially if it is small. Of the advantages of such freezers - space saving and airtight containers.

Larya benefits more:

  • blind door;
  • inside does not get warm air;
  • space larya competently organized: you can always see what and where is.

No Frost

The plus of this system is that the camera does not require manual defrosting. Minus - the technique with the Noë Frost system is quite noisy. Another drawback - the design takes the lion's share of the total. The main argument: No Frost dries and dehydrates products - does not work in the case of frosts. Before you send the products to the camera, they are carefully packed.


Many cameras are equipped with two compressors. Such devices are called two-section ones, since there are two independent compartments inside. This is very convenient: if necessary, one compartment can be turned off. For example, in the summer you loaded the boxes with workpieces, by the winter the stocks have run out, and the extra section simply turns off. Excellent economy of electricity.

With or without superfrozen

Superfrost or shock freezing involves switching on the engine 12-14 hours before loading at increased power. Depending on the manufacturer and model, the temperature will drop from -26 to -34 degrees. A large volume of room temperature products will quickly cool and not damage already frozen.

An important factor is the auto-disabling of this useful function. If you do not have it, and you forgot to manually turn off the fast freeze, most likely your camera will have a real "ice kingdom".
