Re: Ice cream problems and ambient temperatures
I said to hell with it and bought a stand up freezer that can hold 9x 11.4 litre tubs of ice cream. I figured if I have issues with ambient air temps, I'll just dump the ice cream and I could always use more freezer space.
A chest freezer would make it easier for scooping as ice cream can be stacked but if it failed due to ambient air I would regret not having a stand up freezer and I could always change to a chest freezer next year if I wanted to.
Stand up freezer was bought from Costco, works like a charm. No issues with ambient air temps whatsoever and it has hit 100 degrees twice so far this year.
For anyone considering hard ice cream, I would definitely recommend a stand up freezer. I do not know if a chest freezer would hold the temp as well as this one does
