AT A GLANCE...
With a sleek and modern black finish, this freezer is compact and garage friendly
On This Page:
An entry level freezer from Fridgemaster that packs in plenty plenty of features at a budget price. It's a popular seller with some good user feedback.
The contemporary black finish is particularly useful if you will be storing the unit around the house - looks a bit more stylish than a boring white one!
Easily slotting into a space less than 2 feet wide, it offers 95 litres of usable storage - that's about 5 full bags - making it most suitable for a single or two person household, or perhaps an overflow freezer for a family.
One wire basket is supplied, and there's just space for another if you wish (around £30) though that will of course restrict access to items lower down in the freezer.
We were pleased to see the freezer has a drain port located at the front which will make defrosting easier - some freezers hide this around the back necessitating moving the unit around.
There is however, no counterbalanced lid, so it won't stay open at an angle unless you hold it up - most rivals do include such a lid.
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
Likes the Garage
Fridgemaster say that this is suitable for outbuildings such as garages, even if the temperature gets as low as -15 degrees Celsius thanks to its WinterGuard feature. It is still relatively rare to see this on a cheap freezer.
In the event of a power cut, food is kept safe for up to 24 hours which is quite reasonable given the unit's size and cost.
The recessed handles in the lid annoyed quite a few users - they would have liked a proper handle at the front in the usual place. The manual is also rather lacklustre, although using a chest freezer is hardly rocket science.
The sleek black finish, while modern and stylish does make it a little difficult to read the controls on the control panel as they are all black too!
If you like to keep things traditional, this unit is also available in a regular white version.
This is one of the cheapest chest freezers that you can keep safely in the garage thanks to the WinterGuard feature. People like it's compact nature and that it just gets on with the job.
