The freezer should be located in the coolest
area of the room, away from heat producing
appliances or heating ducts, and out of
direct sunlight.

Let hot foods cool to room temperature
before placing in the freezer. Overloading

the freezer forces the compressor to run longer. Foods that
freeze too slowly may spoil or lose quality.

Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry
before placing them in the freezer. This cuts down on

frost build-up inside the freezer.

Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil,

wax paper, or paper toweling. Liners interfere with cold

air circulation, making the freezer less efficient.

extended searches. Remove as many items as needed
at one time, and close the door as soon as possible.

or Ice Cream Manufacturers for local dry ice suppliers. Always
wear gloves and use caution when handling dry ice.
