Freezer

Freezer units are used in households and in industry and commerce. Food stored at or below -18 ĀC (0 ĀF) is safe indefinitely. Most household freezers maintain temperatures from -23 to -18 ĀC (-9 to 0 ĀF), although some freezer-only units can achieve ?34 ĀC (?29 ĀF) and lower. Refrigerators generally do not achieve lower than ?23 ĀC (?9 ĀF), since the same coolant loop serves both compartments: Lowering the freezer compartment temperature excessively causes difficulties in maintaining above-freezing temperature in the refrigerator compartment. Domestic freezers can be included as a separate compartment in a refrigerator, or can be a separate appliance. Domestic freezers are generally upright units resembling refrigerators or chests (upright units laid on their backs). Many modern upright freezers come with an ice dispenser built into their door. Some upscale models include thermostat displays and controls, and sometimes flatscreen televisions as well.
