In Detail

Logik is one of Curry's own brands, and produce a variety of household electricals that are high on specification and low on price, usually because they are rebadged versions of other well-known brands.

works in the garagePopular
This 200 litre model is one of their most popular sellers in the medium size category and is also available in a contemporary black version if you'd prefer.

Garage Safe
It is a little bit short on creature comforts - there is no light or lockable lid - but it can be kept in garages and outbuildings even in temperatures down to -15 degrees Celsius. This is thanks to it's Winter Guard technology and it is good to see something like that at this low price point.

front drain is convenientConvenient Design
A front-mounted drain port is conveniently placed, which will help make defrosting that much easier. Additionally, the freezer can keep food safe for up to 30 hours in the event of a power cut which is good to know.

Value for Money
Only one basket is supplied, but you can buy extra ones from the Currys Partmaster website for around £30. One extra would probably be quite handy and even if it nudges the price to around £200 that's still good value for all you get.

User Feedback
Currys have had some good user feedback - people like the storage available for the price and the fact you can keep it in a garage or summerhouse. An internal light and an extra basket are features people would like to see added.

Extremely good value for nearly 200 litres of space and garage friendly too
