The purpose of the invention is to provide a refrigerating device that can quickly restore the temperature in a chamber to a target chamber temperature when a sudden change in temperature has occurred in the chamber and that is able to keep excessive control and unnecessary cooling to a minimum when the chamber temperature is returning to the target chamber temperature. This refrigerating device determines a target evaporation temperature with a target evaporation temperature setting means (52), using the detected chamber temperature and the amount of change in the chamber temperature calculated by a chamber temperature change calculating means (54) from the chamber temperature. When the chamber temperature is higher than a set value, the degree by which the target evaporation temperature is reduced in the determination is made successively smaller in the order of: when the change in the chamber temperature is positive and large; when the change is positive and small; and when the change is negative. ...
