Now I'm cross too !!

Would you believe it- power cut overnight ! All mince pies, sausage rolls, truffles and various meats, fish etc. defrosted.

Have cleaned out freezer and binned most of it. Not sure if I should laugh or cry ! That's a lie - it's the latter.

Cross

Oh Sandra, my heart goes out to you. I would be devestated.
Hope you're insured for such losses? Good luck with replacements.

De-frost

In my experience the only things that will de-frost enough to need to be thrown away after, perhaps, 48 hours with no electricity is icecream and bread.

Just make sure your freezer is on the correct temperature and DO NOT OPEN the lid next time it is off for a prolonged period.

Cross 2

So sorry that happened - if it had been me, I would have baked it all, and phoned all my friends and asked them round (bring a bottle!) for an impromptu Christmas party!

De-Frost

I agree with Welshcookie. We've had O/N power cuts occasionally but the frozen food was still frozen in the morning. If you don't open a freezer it should maintain it's temperature - and the food in it- for quite a while, especially if the freezer is full.

Found this information:

"An unopened refrigerator will keep foods at a safe temperature for around four hours; an unopened freezer will keep foods safe for around 48 hours, if full; 24 hours if half-full."
