Tips for Storing Ice Cream
From The International Ice Cream Association

  • Don’t allow ice cream to repeatedly soften and re-freeze. When this occurs, ice cream’s small ice crystals can eventually turn into large, unpalatable lumps.
  • Your freezer should be set at between -5°F and 0°F. Ice cream is easiest to scoop when stored between 6°F and 10°F, the ideal serving temperature range.
  • Store ice cream in the main part of the freezer, not in the freezer door, where it’s subject to fluctuating temperatures.
  • Keep the ice cream container lid tightly closed when storing in the freezer.
  • Don’t store ice cream alongside uncovered foods; odors may penetrate ice cream and affect its flavor.
