Most Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: If I open the door won’t the cold inside all fall out?
A: No; if your freezer is half full or more of frozen food, that alone will preserve your cold inside the box.

Q: Doesn’t it take a lot of fuel to run two burners at a time?
A: This 18 cu.ft. model is designed where you only need one burner through most of the year; only on the hottest summer days or times when lots of room-temperature foods are added are 2 burners needed. Here we are assuming the freezer is set up in a basement or mild area.

Q: How much gas does an upright freezer like this use compared to a chest freezer?
A: Two burners in use on the 18 cu.ft. model is still more efficient per cubic foot than a small one burner 10 cu.ft. chest freezer. So running on one burner and keeping 18 cu.ft. of food frozen will use 10 - 20 gallons of LP gas per month.

Q: How much chilled food can be added at a time, without food spoilage?
A: Up to half of the freezer’s total food capacity. The 18 cu.ft. freezer holds up to 630 lbs. of frozen food.

Q: How cold should my freezer be to keep my sweets and ice cream hard?
A: A range of -3° to 5°F above is best.

Why buy a freezer?  Freezing is the healthiest way to preserve the fresh, natural flavors and nutrients of produce, meat and fish. Just ask any gardener, hunter or fisherman! Even if the only hunting you do is for bargains in the frozen food aisle of the grocery store, an upright freezer provides cost-effective storage that lets you enjoy the full value of bulk purchasing. This Blizzard freezer is the largest gas freezer made in the world, while consuming no more floor space than an 8 cu.ft. chest freezer. So, you will have ample storage capacity without taking up a lot of floor space in your garage, laundry room, hunting cabin or basement.
