To Freezer or Not to Freezer, that is the Question

by Waverly Wilde

So, you’re thinking about getting a chest freezer, but you’re not really sure if you need it. It’s a common question in the household: “Is it time we get a chest freezer?” Well, do you have a large family? Do you live far from town? Do you hunt? Are you a serial killer? Ok ignore that last part.

But, there are a few factors that will tell you if it’s time to add that big freezer to your home, and we’re here to help you out. Take these reasons into consideration when you and your family are discussing the buy.

 1.       Your Family Eats a Lot

If you have a large family, there is no question about it – you need a chest freezer. These large ice boxes can store all your frozen foods for the next couple of months (or month depending on your family) so you won’t need to go shopping every other day to keep your loved ones from starving. Your refrigerator’s freezer can only hold so much food, so having a chest freezer to back you up saves you driving back and forth to the grocery store. Especially if you cook with a lot of meat products, having a chest freezer is the smart way to go.

 2.       You Throw Parties Often

If you are a big on hosting parties, having a chest freezer is like a dream come true. With one you now have the opportunity to prepare lots of food a few days before the party and store it in the freezer, helping relieve any stress you may have been experiencing about food.

Not to mention, you could buy frozen treats in bulk so all you have to do is microwave or cook them right before the party. If you throw events at all, a chest freezer will help you prep food better so you can work on setting up the party decorations or just pampering yourself a little longer than normal on the day of festivities.

 3.       You Live in a Rural Area

Sometimes it’s not that easy to drive into town once a week. Sometimes it’s even difficult to make time once a month. If you live in the country or a rural area, driving to your local grocery store could be a huge hassle, and take a large chunk of your day. With a chest freezer, you can easily store months worth of food, so you don’t need to drive out of the way that often.

The same goes for people without a car or an easy way of getting around. A chest freezer will keep you satisfied and good to go for a couple of months, making your grocery trips happen less frequently.


There are multiple reasons to get a chest freezer that we didn’t even cover here, such as how buying in bulk is usually a cheaper route or if you have a garden, how one would come in handy in preserving the produce.
