Best Chest Ice Freezers to Make a Cold Bath

When choosing the best size for a chest ice freezer, there are several factors you should consider. I would recommend going to BestBuy, Home Depot, CostCo or Lowe's and actually sit inside the freezer to determine which size you like best.  Here is a cold plunge guide that will help you build one for yourself. 

Here's a step-by-step guide to help you make an informed decision:

  1. Determine your body size needs: Assess how tall you are and how much you weight.  Someone under 6 feet tall will be fine in a 7 cubic-foot freezer.  If you have more space I would go with the 10 cubic foot freezer but it does require more materials and water.  
  2. Measure the available space: Measure the area where you plan to place the chest ice freezer. Take into account the height, width, and depth of the space to ensure the freezer will fit properly. It's important to leave some extra space around the freezer for ventilation and easy access to the lid.
  3. Consider the freezer capacity: Chest freezers are usually measured in cubic feet (or liters). The capacity indicates the total storage space inside the freezer. Think about if you want a full body plunge easily or if you are willing to sacrifice some space and water capacity.  The less water the more easily it is to maintain and fill quickly.
  4. Energy efficiency: Look for an energy-efficient model that meets your storage needs. Energy-efficient freezers can help save on electricity costs in the long run. Check the energy rating labels or consult the product specifications to compare the energy consumption of different models.
  5. Additional features: Consider the features that are important to you. Some freezers may have adjustable temperature settings, interior lighting, or removable baskets for easy organization. Evaluate which features are essential for your specific requirements.  
  6. Budget: Determine your budget range for the chest ice freezer. Prices can vary depending on the size, brand, features, and energy efficiency. It's important to strike a balance between your requirements and your budget.
Read reviews and seek recommendations: Before making a final decision, read online reviews from reputable sources or seek recommendations from friends and family who own chest ice freezers. Real-life experiences can provide valuable insights into the reliability and performance of different models.

By considering these factors, you can choose a chest ice freezer that suits your storage needs, fits your available space, and offers the features and energy efficiency you desire.
