Great value medium sized freezer that's packed with features and safe for the garage
You may know Kenwood as the maker of kitchen appliances such as the famous Kenwood Chef so it's interesting to see them making a move into larger appliances. Except, they're not!
This freezer is actually made and sold by Currys under a licensing agreement with Kenwood making it a Kenwood in name only.
That shouldn't detract from the product itself however, as the specification is very high and we know that Curry's other own brands - Logik and Essentials have a reputation for being good products at a low price.
This medium sized chest freezer does tick at the right boxes. For a start it is garage safe down to -15 degrees Celsius, there's a lockable lid and interior light and a front drain port for easier defrosting. Two baskets are supplied.
It also has a rather high-tech control panel conveniently situated in the chunky handle, which also shows the current internal temperature.
At 43 hours the foodsafe time is pretty good too and the energy consumption is about average for the size.
It's as attractive as a chest freezer can be and with a high specification and some good user feedback, it's worth a look if you are after a medium sized freezer to sit out in the garage.
