AT A GLANCE...
This chest freezer is ultra-narrow and can even freeze on the go - suitable for caravans etc
On This Page:
SIA chest freezers (an own brand of the Ship-It Appliances retailer) are known for their no-nonsense, value for money units that just gets on with the job. This is a very narrow freezer at just 48cm wide which means that it can fit into some challenging spaces a normal freezer may not.
The compact dimensions does mean it only has 78 litres of space on offer, but that's still enough to store about 4 full bags of shopping making ideal for a one or two person household, as a family overflow freezer, or in student accommodation.
Take it on Holiday?
Its compact size is also perfectly suited to use in a caravan, motorhome or boat and while not the most efficient on a size/consumption basis, the 202 watts of annual energy usage are perfectly acceptable for mobile living.
It's very basic and there are no fancy frills such as a lockable lid or light, but there is a high temperature alarm warning and one basket just squeezes in, though you may have to remove it to get to items below. A front drain port makes defrosting easier.
The recessed handle saves valuable space
Despite its size, one basket is supplied
The controls are simple to use
Fits in a gap just over 1.5 feet wide
The freezer does have a counterbalanced lid - this means it will stay open and won't slam down on you while you're digging around inside. The sleek black finish looks good too.
Also available in a traditional white colour scheme.
Unfortunately, it is not suitable for outside storage in a garage etc, but with such compact dimensions it won't be too much of a hardship to keep it inside the home.
It is a little pricey for the capacity and you can find bigger freezers for less - 100 litre rivals can actually be £20 cheaper. But this is aimed at people with very specific space requirements - and as such it is pretty much in a class of its own.
