Don't buy a bigger unit than you
need. One cubic foot will hold 35-40
pounds of meat or 40 pint cartons.
Buy a model with a light that warns
of a blown fuse or power failure. If
the power goes off, avoid opening
the door as much as possible.

freezer will absorb unpleasant

Put the same types of food in the
same section of the freezer so they
will be easier to locate.
Several vegetables such as lettuce,
celery, cucumbers, carrots and
tomatoes lose crispness when
frozen. Unless these are to be cooked, it's
best not to freeze them.
Freeze foods in small packages
because'the smaller they are the
# faster they will freeze and thaw.
Use freezer to capacity. A well-filled
unit operates more efficiently. Fill
milk cartons with water to take up
space not needed for vegetables or meat.
