In Detail

A brand new model from Zanussi that packs in 400 litres of usable space.

In addition to that, there are 3 baskets supplied to help with organising content, and a light is useful for those night time raids.

A front drain is easily accessible and really helps with defrosting. There is no lockable lid however, and at 45 decibels it's a bit nosier than average. There's no doubting its otherwise great specification though.

Zanussi say the concealed condenser on this model allows safer operation 'anywhere' because it's is shielded from harmful condensation. We're not sure that this includes unheated buildings, so assume 10 degrees C - therefore maybe not suitable for the garage or outbuilding.

A large capacity freezer that is generously supplied with three wire baskets
