- Long Foodsafe Time
IN A SENTENCE...
Over 300 litres of space with this medium capacity freezer that also has an interior light
A high spec, big capacity chest freezer from Chinese brand Haier. Their partnership with premium German brand Liebherr really shows though with good build quality that has garnered some great user feedback.
This freezer can hold about 16 bags of shopping and they have helpfully included a large and bright LED interior light. Thick seals and good insulation means a rising time of 35 hours (how long it takes food to thaw and spoil) which is pretty good and above average.
There's a lockable lid which will keep your food safe from prying eyes, and it's counterbalanced - this means it will stay open and won't slam down on you.
A front mounted drain port is really helpful at defrost time as you can easily access it and run off the melted ice without having to move the freezer.
