IN A SENTENCE...
A compact, simple, no-nonsense entry level chest freezer that just does the job
This entry level model from Bush has below average energy consumption at 170 kwh per year (approx. £25/year). Other than that it's a no-frills compact chest freezer with a counterbalanced lid and one basket - fairly standard stuff.
It does have a 24 hour rising time (that's how long food can last a power cut and still be safe to eat), which is pretty good for a basic freezer.
The front mounted drain plug is a welcome addition and makes defrosting easier. You just let the ice inside melt and let the water run out the drain plug into a suitable receptacle.
The lid is counterbalanced which means it stays open and won't slam shut on you, and one basket is provided but that's about all for extra features.
Although this unit is capable of working in air temperatures down to 10 degrees Celsius, Bush have stated this is not suitable for use in unheated areas like garages.
A black version is also available that has the same specification but with a bit more of a jazzy appearance.
