In Detail

A medium size freezer from Russell Hobbs that might be a little short on luxuries like a lockable lid or interior light, but does have a very long foodsafe time of 52 hours so if your area is prone to powercuts, this will be a lifesaver.

One basket is supplied and there is space for probaby two more. The drain port (for defrosting) appears to be side mounted which is not as convenient as front mounted.

Russell Hobbs say that this unit is suitable for garage or outbuilding use and Argos have confirmed that the minimum external operating temperature for this product is -10 Celsius.
