Need a freezer to stock up on all those frozen treats? You’ll need to know whether you want a freestanding or integrated model, plus what size and the features you might like. Our handy guide will walk through exactly that, so you can choose with confidence.
Upright: the most popular choice and ideal for medium sized households. Can be integrated into your kitchen cabinets.
Under counter: perfect for smaller households or as a second freezer to complement your main fridge freezer.
Chest: perfect for large households or if you like stocking up on frozen food. Chest freezers give you loads of space because they open from the top.
The classic option, freestanding freezers are spot on if you don’t want a built-in appliance. They give you more freedom on where you want to put them, and you can take them with you if you move house.
Integrated or built-in freezers sit nicely behind your cupboard door for that sleek modern look.
You’ll get all the correct parts and fixings for your integrated freezer. So, you won’t need to worry about finding the right bit of kit when fitting that cabinet door.
Frost free tech stops ice from forming inside your freezer. It uses a fan to keep the cool air constantly moving around so nothing ever gets a chance to stick. So, you’ll never have battle through ice to get the last of those frozen chips.
The interior light lets you see exactly what you have in. When you open up the freezer, the light inside will make it easy to spot what you’re after, so you don’t leave the door open for too long and waste any energy.
The temperature warning will let you know when the conditions in your freezer are not right. This means you can easily stop your food from going off.
The control panel lock is a great safety feature for any little ones running around the house. They won’t be able to get into the freezer, meaning there won’t be any accidents to worry about.
The open-door alert will let you know when you haven’t closed your freezer door by making a noise. This way, you’ll never accidentally leave it open, stopping your food going off and saving energy too.
Fast freeze is ideal for when you’ve just got back from the shop and you need to get your food straight in the freezer. This setting will rapidly lower the temperature to get your food back to the right conditions and lock in all the nutrients. So, you won’t have to worry about that ice cream melting.
Lots of freezers have flexible storage options that let you store food how you want. With moveable racks and baskets, you can stack and order your food in a way that makes it easier for you. These features are especially helpful in wide or chest freezers, as you can keep on top of all your food.
Freezer guard protection is ideal if you plan on storing your fridge freezer in an environment below 0°C, such as a conservatory. This is because in these low temperatures, freezers can stop working. Freezer guard tech makes sure your appliance stays at the right temperature at all times, so your food stays fresh for as long as possible.
A standard freezer will use roughly 269kWh of electricity a year, which will cost around 12p a day.
