Product Overview

Classic cream, cavernous capacity. With a 379 litre fridge the FF-MONTANA-C has a massive amount of storage space, and the 170 litre freezer means it’s ideally suited to large families and busy households. The Frost Free system keeps ice from taking over the freezer, and auto defrost stops it creeping into the fridge, all with absolutely no extra effort from you. A built-in ice and water dispenser make it ideal for social gatherings, or to give you a day to day alternative to sugary drinks. Best of all it runs with an A+ energy efficiency rating, saving you money on your monthly bills!

    Well Pleased

    Pros:Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

    Cons:Expensive

    "Only had this for a few weeks but really impressed with it. Makes loads of ice very quickly. I can't say that the freezer part is the biggest I've seen but it's more than adequate for our needs now that the kids have left home. The fridge part is HUGE and the storage space on the doors is excellent. The build quality is great and it was very easy to set up and get it working and it's quiet while running. It's pricey compared to other ones I looked at but in general you get what you pay for, so it's looking like a very good buy for us."

    A lot of money to get the right colour

    Pros:Easy to use, looks good

    Cons:Expensive, Noisy

    "I bought this fridge freezer as it seemed to be the only American type that had a colour to match the rest of the kitchen. Needed to remove the handles to get the device into the house. Handles were not replaced correctly. Plastic hinge covers cannot be put in place otherwise the door does not shut fully. How to fit the bottom panel that covers the level adjustment, baffles me. Ice bounces out all over the place. Nice and big plenty of room. Easy to connect to water supply."

    Disappointed

    Pros:Easy to use

    Cons:poor quality, Expensive, Noisy, just doesn't do what is says its manual claims, very difficult and expensive to repair

    "Although this fridge was marketed as a Nebraska, it was Britannia's introduction to the fridge freezer market and is now known as the Montana. From the start, we weren't entirely happy with it. The handbook clearly says it is self-closing - it isn't. The ice maker and water dispenser are great, but the ice needs using frequently or it freezes into a solid block, and the crushed ice dispenser dispenses broken ice cubes, not crushed ice. The contents of the freezer are frequently covered in a layer of frost, and now (after six years - but more of that later) the fan area, which doesn't seem to defrost, is frequently frozen up enough to need defrosting to prevent the fan from catching on the casing and being very noisy - and presumably less efficient. I appreciate that this is now an older machine, but it was very expensive and I would have hoped for a longer life for it. I have been in touch with Britannia to ask for them to come and repair it (no other repairer will come out saying that they don't repair Britannia fridges as they can't get parts easily and Britannia is uncooperative about supplying them with repair manuals or information) and when I eventually got through to the right department, after eleven minutes wait on the phone, I learned that their callout charge is £100 (which includes the first hour). I would never buy another Britannia appliance."
