Mini Freezers and the Environment – Handy Tips
Getting one of the many mini freezers on the market today is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. If you are single or have only a few people in your household, you can be nice to the environment and help put money back in your own pocket by investing in one of the mini freezers and putting it in your house.
There are many brands and many different models of freezers, all designed to fit your personal needs so you don’t have to worry about not having the right freezer.
When you separate the components of the average refrigerator, you discover that the refrigerator section is not very large. It generally only comes up to your chest if it is the freezer on top, refrigerator on bottom model, or is tall and thin and doesn’t fit much if it is a double door model. The freezer section is even smaller, usually about the size of a microwave oven.
You’ve probably often heard people talk about how to save money by making your own frozen dinners. Maybe you’ve even tried to do it. The problem is when you try to eat them and they taste like garbage and have freezer burn besides.
Having an extra freezer can go a long way to helping with that. Freezer burn happens because the food is improperly packed and micro-freezes and micro-thaws over and over again, with the air trying to balance out the humidity in the freezer.
In a small storage freezer, it is easy to balance the humidity by putting open cups or ice cube trays in there and packing it more tightly than the other freezer so that things maintain a more constant temperature. Use the extra freezer to store things in batches and then rotate them out by date to go a long way toward saving your food from freezer burn.
