In Detail

A popular medium sized freezer from Fridgemaster that has 198 litres of usable interior space which is about 10 full bags of shopping.

New Electronic Controls

A recent redesign has seen new electronic controls replace the older rotary dial for more precise temperature setting. An improvement in efficiency means the unit is now promoted to group E in the A-G rating scale.

Not Confined to the House

Like most people, you may not have space to accommodate a chunky cabinet like this around the house, but Fridgemaster have your back!

They've confirmed this freezer is suitable for outbuildings such as garages, even if the temperature gets as low as -15 degrees Celsius thanks to its WinterGuard feature.

User feedback is very good overall, with people praising both the freezer's compact size and suitability for the garage. Given its size, another basket wouldn't go amiss though as there is plenty of room while still allowing access to items underneath.

Key Features

The front drain port is easily accessible and makes defrosting much simpler

One wire basket is supplied which allows you quickly grab your most used items

The 'clean back' hides the delicate condenser, looks neater and is also flame retardant

WinterGuard technology means this freezer will safely work in unheated outbuildings

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this freezer frost free?
No freezers are currently frost free. Manufacturers recommend defrosting twice a year. Unplug the drain port at the front to let defrosted ice from inside run off into a suitable container.

How much clearance do I need on each side?
you should leave at least 10cm (3") around each edge to allow for good airflow.

Does this freezer have a 'step' inside?
Yes, in common with most freezers there is a boxed-off area at the bottom that contains the motor electrical components. This is not included in the 95 litres of storage.

We bought this to replace our tall freezer that failed and have found it to be very good indeed and at a fantastic price. It's more than big enough for us, but not too big that we couldn't get it downstairs into our basement.
