Freezer Temperature

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is my first boat with a freezer; a quick google tells me that -18 is the ideal temperature for a freezer - but’s that’s for safely freezing food long term, is that necessary for a week away on the boat? What temperature do others use for their freezers?

-15 minimum for icecream. Without icecream you'll be fine for a week, even at -5.  Long term min safe temp is -15, but my neighbor who is a food safety specialist says -18 to -21 is ideal.
