In Detail

As basic as they come, this compact own brand chest freezer from Currys is usually one of the cheapest too. With only 60 litres available it is most suitable for a single or two person household, or as an overflow freezer for a family.

At just 50cm wide it is one of the narrowest freezers around making it ideal for tight spaces (leave enough room for airflow at the back though!).

Currys say that this is suitable for outbuildings, but we don't think they mean unheated ones and we don't recommend this freezer is used where the temperature may drop below 10 degrees Celsius.
