Freezers allow us to waste less food and save money. Whether you make meals in advance, host special celebrations or love frozen pizza, you probably agree that a freezer is a great convenience. But what happens when it stops working?
Your freezer should always maintain zero degrees Fahrenheit or lower, ensuring food stays frozen and doesn’t go bad. According to the FDA, keeping food frozen in this temperature range ensures safe storage and prevents the growth of bacteria.
