In Detail

This freezer has a useful capacity of 304 litres and two wire baskets to help you organise your contents easily. There's an interior light and a rising time of 26 hours in the event of a power cut - that's over one day before food will start to thaw and spoil.

Excellent John Lewis service as you would expect and free delivery. A 3 year warranty is included which can be upgraded to 5 years for an additional £70.

Like all John Lewis freezers this one needs to be kept in an area where the temperature does not fall below 10 degrees Celsius. Low-Frost system reduces frost build up by up to 80% so potentially you don't need to defrost for up to 5 years.

A nice quality freezer that also comes with a 3 year warranty as standard
