No chest freezers are currently frost-free. Find out why in this article
This entry level model from Bush has below average energy consumption at 171 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. Although this unit is capable of working down to 10 degrees Celsius, Bush have stated this is not suitable for use outdoors.
A black version is also available that has the same specification but with a bit more of a jazzy appearance.
Cheap and cheerful no-nonsense entry level freezer that just does the job”
