Stumbled across this neat Philco Deep Freeze. If it were closer, I'd go for it. In this area at least, your traditional deepfreeze is twice this size and was lowered into the basement when the house was built. This one actually appears manageable!

Deep Freeze

Another case of where the first brand of a product becomes the generic term like Kodak, Frigidaire and Xerox.

Wow, that is in beautiful shape.


Where are the evaporators in chest freezers, and where would the frost accumulate?  How do you defrost one?  Is there a drain?

Deep-Freeze was an independent brand name. They marketed the first home freezers. They were round and had a lift off round lid like a wringer washer. They were sold as single units for $225.00 with the compressor in a rectangular box beside the unit or in "double tub" configuration for $300 with the compressor between the tubs, according to a report on page 58 of the October, 1940 issue of House & Garden. The freezers could maintain a temperature of zero degrees Fahrenheit at room temperatures of 115 and could be set to as low as minus 20F for flash freezing non-frozen food. Later, the company also marketed electric ranges with the Deep-Freeze name.
