In Detail

Another popular seller from Fridgemaster that just gets on with the job. This particular model has 139 litres of usable space.

It comes with one wire basket though there is space for one more, but there are no extras like a lockable lid or interior light.

A front-mounted drain port helps make defrosting easier and the freezer can keep food safe for up to 32 hours in the event of a power cut.

Fridgemaster say that this is suitable for outbuildings such as garages, even if the temperature gets as low as -15 degrees Celsius thanks to its Winter Guard feature. It is still quite unusual to see this on a freezer at the price.

User feedback is very good, with people praising both the freezer's compact size and suitability for the garage, as well as the service they got from AO. Another basket wouldn't go amiss though!

A good value freezer with decent storage that is safe to work in the garage
