# How does a freezer slow freeze food?

I have been told that the a freezer will freeze food slower if: a) the product load is greater then the capacity b) the capacity is greater then then the load.

In a) I think this means if a freezer can freeze 2kg of food in 12 hours, using more food will cause the freezer to work slower and so freeze slower. Is this the case?

In b) surely if the capacity is greater then the load that means it will freeze fast or at a normal rate? Or do you think it is referring to a much larger capacity i.e. if 1kg of food is placed inside a deep freezer, then it will freeze slower then if 1kg of food was placed inside a smaller freezer. If this is the case, why?

Not sure what is right. Can somebody please explain.

Thanks

(a): Yes, that's right. (b): Huh? Maybe you can cite or quote your source? If it's "Mr. H. RandomRefrigeratorSalesman", it's entirely possible he just misspoke or was confused. – Rex Kerr Aug 27 '13 at 0:03
Actually it was a professor although im not sure exactly what he meant. In any case, if you have 1kg food freeze a large freezer and 1kg in a small freezer, which freezer will freeze the food slower? – James Wilson Aug 27 '13 at 0:44
