In Detail

A brand new Mark 2 version with some useful improvements over the older one. There is now an LED readout of the current temperature - still quite a rarity even on more expensive freezers.

There's 249 litres of usable space available, and one plastic basket is supplied as standard.

Slightly more economical than the old mode and the food-safe time of 43 hours is pretty good.

Well specified medium sized chest freezer with all the refinements of other LEC models
