A glass lid chest freezer is freestanding kitchen appliances featuring considerable amount of space for the storage of frozen food and other perishable items. A lot of homeowners prefer to buy it as a substitute to investing in a refrigerator with a larger freezer compartment. One of the major advantages of having a commercial glass lid chest freezer is that the bulkier food items can be stored in it and thus leaving ample amount of space in the refrigerator’s freezer section for other small items.

When it comes to a glass lid chest freezer, it is one of the two commercially available freezer for sale; the other being an upright freezer. Both of them have their own specific strengths and weaknesses, depending on your needs and requirements Glass top chests  offer several benefits to the user in terms of price, storage capacity and energy. Nowadays, the chest freezer is the most reasonable freezer available in the market. Basically, every inch of the chest freezer is usable storage. There are certain chest freezers that come with automatic-defrost or frost-free options. The ones with manual defrost option takes almost a day to accomplish the task

Chest freezers are more energy-efficient than upright freezers. Generally, they cost a  12 – 15 per month  to run when divided. Upright freezers cost around $20 – 35   a month to run. Both options come in energy-efficient models, which can further your cost savings.

Chest freezers use an airtight locking seal at the top to keep the food inside fresh and frozen. Due to this, it also means that less energy is used to keep the container cool. Upright freezers have smaller gaps in the door mechanism, which can take more energy to keep the food cold.

Glass Lid Chest Freezer Design:

Certainly, these chest freezers come with built-in side-wall insulation to hold their cold temperatures well for an extended period of time and thus use least-energy to function. On the other hand, if you are facing power outages or you are moving to another house, an un-plugged chest freezer can keep the products cold for almost 3 days, as long as the lid is closed.


While buying freezer, it’s very important to know what style of freezer you actually want and what will work better for you by keeping in mind your storage requirements. In point of fact, there are some tradeoffs to each type of freezer while choosing such as the price of the freezer, storage capacity, convenience it offers, energy-efficiency and installation of the freezer. Always remember both upright and chest freezer models are generally available in 5 – 25 cu feet sizes, though there are capacity differences in the same size units.

These chest freezers come with at least 3x  wire-basket in order to organize the content perfectly. With the help of cardboard boxes, you can ideally manage different types of food contents. There are various chest freezer models that come with a bottom drawer that is accessible from outside of the freezer for your convenience.

The pros of a chest freezer are – 

More storage ability – you can store under the wire baskets giving a large capacity of storage and display

More affordable to purchase and less moving parts therefor lower service costs 

Less expensive running costs as units are use very efficient static cooling and our units run natural and very efficient R290 gas

Keeps food fresh during a power outage as the units are static cooling and the way they are loaded – product can remain frozen for up to 6 hrs 

Unit long life as they have very few moving parts the expected life is over 5 – 10 years duty period 

Calculating Capacity

Capacity is directly related to the size of the equipment – the larger the dimensions the greater the capacity.

Chest freezers typically have a much larger capacity than other types of storage refrigeration with the exception of freezer rooms. Ranging anywhere from 98 litres to 701 litres, there is plenty of scope to meet the demands of all scales of business. Storage capacity should be clearly displayed in all product specifications, so shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Top Tip: Pay attention to whether specifications are referring to gross or net capacity. Manufacturers will typically specify gross capacity, a figure that is based on external dimensions and therefore doesn’t reflect the true storage volume available. Where possible look for a net capacity value which will give a more accurate representation of storage capabilities.

The capacity required will ultimately depend on the size of the business and the quantity of products that need to be stored. It’s preferable to establish as accurately as possible the amount of storage you need prior to making a purchase  as opting for a unit too small will be futile and choosing a product too large will result in higher running costs by chilling space that isn’t actually required.
