So after going around town for a few months, I discovered that my options for a vertical freezer was Haier or Haier. So we got the Haier.

 

Before I spend the next week researching what temperature to set the freezer to, I would ask for the collective wisdom.

 

My colleague sets it to -18C so I've done that. I know trucks with chicken will throw out all chicken if temp goes above -13C.

 

Somewhere in between the 2? Any particular reason (other than power), eg better food condition?

Being a Haier it won't matter.

The manual for our two-year-old Bosch says -18.

Ah I see, my colleague must have got that from her manual. Don't ask where my manual is.

Haier = F&P, but with slightly inferior parts. Mate is a F&P R&D overseer.

My Samsung is set to -18 and isn't adjustable.  I'd leave it at that

I changed mine to -21. In my opinion the colder the better.

You should try -15C, it brings better luck.

For food safety the minimum should be -18. Most likely you will die, someday.

Not that they happen very often in most places in NZ, but in the event of a power cut each degree colder will buy you time before your food is ruined
