    Odd question but after much thought.. and consulting the laws of thermodynamics..

    It won't make any difference what's inside if the freezer door is kept closed..

    so may as well fill it with ice cream :thumb::Smile:

    As Jim said, if the door is not opened (and does not "leak" )I would think it makes no difference, but if it's empty, and the door is opened all the cold air will drop out, which is why it is better to run a 'fridge or freezer full, (I think!)

    There's a great tip somewhere on the forum that suggests keeping freezer packs in the freezer so they can be moved into the fridge section when travelling on ferries or through the tunnel.
