Quickest way to freeze something

£0.00 @
Me and a friend are having a debate - is it quicker to freeze something by just putting it in a freezer (eg. loose) or by tucking it in between packs of ice cubes in the freezer? Any thoughts? Read More

Too cool it down quikest put some anti freeze in freezer. his will drop to temp of freezer maybe -15 but stil be liquid. Now put object to freeze in plastic bag and remove as much ait as possible. Put bag in antifreeze mix.
Thery behind this. Air is a good insulator liquids not as good. Getting object in contact with liquid will speed process. Bit like difference between your face in cold air and in water same temp.

still the same tempurature

I would say it would take longer if you packed it between the ice packs because ice is a good insulator, which will prevent the item from losing it's heat.

just eat it and solve the problem ;)

Heat it up then put it straight into the freezer loose.

I'd say you just get some Liquid nitrogen and pour some on. That should do the trick in a second. LOL!

Which is why igloo's are used in cold places :thumbsup:
albiet it's not warm in there, but it's warmer than outside.

Hehe yep. It's like a container of hot water will freeze quicker than a container of cold. :)

Yep I'm off this theory.
Also Freezers work by blasting the cold air around, so packing things in tightly or putting something inbetween other items will reduce the effectiveness- not by much but by a bit.

If ya want to quick freeze something, good for getting cans cold quick.
Put ice cubes in bowl, pour salt over ice.
Place can on ice then add cold water :thumbsup:

Nahh, not having that.

You need to find the permetivity of your mediums to know the answer. heat transfers faster on metal and ice is a good insulator. Infact, if you really wanna freeze something quickly, pour liquid hydrogen on it :D
