Large sized freezer with over 300 litres of space and great for the garage or outbuilding
ABOUT THIS FREEZER
A generously proportioned new freezer with an impressive 302 litres of space - that's over 15 bags of shopping!
Like all new freezers from FridgeMaster, this unit uses their great Winter Security feature which means it is perfectly safe to use in unheated garages or outbuildings down to -15 degrees Celsius.
There are no fancy extras like an interior light, and there's only one basket supplied, but to be honest that's not uncommon at this price range. It does have a front drain port though, which will make the task of defrosting much easier. The unit is also mounted on castors to make moving it about easy.
Unlike some smaller Fridgemaster freezers, the lid on this model, although not lockable, is counterbalanced and has a nice chunky handle.
In fact, the price is what makes this freezer stand out - with over 300 litres of usable space this is a great freezer that you can trust to just get on with the job whatever the weather!
