How Cold Should a Deep Freezer Be?

Answer

Any freezer, especially a deep freezer, should never be set at above -15 degrees C. If the freezer reaches temperatures greater than that ice cream will begin to soften and food won't keep as long. Even though -15 degrees C is the highest you want it to be, food will actually keep longer if it is kept even lower at about -23 degrees C.
