No matter how skilled you are at fridge-tetris, it can be hard to fit a full shopping cart into your fridge-freezer (opens in new tab). If you’re fully stocked for social distancing mode, or you’ve been overly ambitious in your weekly shop, we’ve collected the best chest freezer deals to see you through a crisis.

Now’s an ideal time to invest in a chest freezer (opens in new tab). Their open layout means you can accommodate bulky or oddly-shaped items which may not fit into your upright freezer (opens in new tab), and they can be stored in pretty much any room of your home, but most people tend to keep them in a utility room, basement, or garage. With many of us stocking up on everything we need to see us through the coronavirus outbreak, you might struggle to get through fresh produce before it goes bad, or be buying in bulk where you’d normally opt for smaller portions. Chest freezers let you store more food for longer, and they come in a variety of sizes and shapes for whatever space you have available. 

Keep in mind, though, chest freezers are almost as in-demand as the food you’re buying for them. We’d recommend you snap up one of these chest freezer deals while they last, so scroll down and get shopping.

Looking for something a bit bigger? This Frigidaire model has 14.8 cubic feet of storage. If you consider the average shopping bag is one cubic foot, that might give you an idea of just how much this deep freezer can fit.

Stockpiling for two? The mighty Fridigaire might not be for you, then.

It's also $179, though, so if your grocery haul has hit your bank balance a bit too hard, investing in a chest freezer doesn't have to.
