In Detail

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.

Compact Chiller

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.

With limited space available in my utility room and the need of extra freezer storage I decided on this small chest freezer and I’m very impressed at the size and space within. Perfect for our needs!

Site visitor

This is a good freezer. Was slightly annoyed having to pay more because its slimline. It is big enough for my family so overall happy with the freezer.

Yes you do pay more for less effectively, but such narrow freezers are very hard to come by!

Great item - very quiet and being slimline it doesn’t take up much space at all. Working well and we’re very pleased.

I am happy with this freezer because it fitted in a small space and it seems robust. The lid opens easily and closes firmly. The drain plug and dials are at the front.
