How to use the freezer correctly

How to use the freezer correctly

There are a lot of questions about using the freezer. Can we freeze the fruit? Is it ok to thaw at room temperature? How long can a food be frozen? In this blog, we will try to answer all these questions that you have surely asked yourself. Then we will tell you how to use the freezer optimally to get the most out of it.

Temperature adjustment.

The ideal temperature for the freezer is -18 ° C. It is important to respect this instruction. To maintain this constant temperature, avoid introducing hot food or too much food at the same time. Otherwise, it requires extra work in the freezer, and therefore an increase in energy consumption.

Food packaging

You have surely noticed the effects of the intense cold on your skin, and in particular the appearance of burns. In the freezer, your food can suffer the same fate if you do not store it in the proper packaging. We recommend the use of airtight bags, cling film or plastic container. In addition to protecting your food from the cold, you will avoid contamination between foods.

Ensure food rotation

Experts recommend freezing food for a maximum of three months, and a maximum of one month if it is ground meat or seafood. They will not become toxic after this date, but their taste and texture will be significantly altered. .

Therefore, we recommend that you take control of what is frozen and include foods that are about to expire in your meals. So you can enjoy them as if they were fresh.

Using frozen foods

When you defrost something, it's always much easier to use already chopped or prepared pieces. That is why we encourage you to prepare fresh foods before freezing them. Another reason is that it usually takes up less space in the freezer.

Also, the smaller the piece, the faster it will reach the freezing process. It is therefore preferable to freeze a piece of meat in fillets than the whole piece of meat. You can separate the fillets with cooking film so you can easily detach them later.


No one likes to throw food away, and the freezer can become a storehouse of food we'll never cook. We are referring to products left in the freezer and about to expire. So, avoid cluttering your freezer with foods that you will end up throwing away, and save that space for products you will enjoy later.
