Freestanding freezer buying guide

Here are five questions you need to ask yourself when buying a new freezer.

What kind of freezer do I need?

You’ve got a few different types of freezers to choose from. Under counter models fit nice and snug underneath your kitchen worktop, while tall upright freezers have more room for your food.

We also have a range of chest freezers available, which are great for storing large bulky items. And if you need an integrated freezer, we’ve got plenty of models that will perfectly blend in with the rest of your kitchen.

How big should my freezer be?

We measure freestanding freezers in shopping bags, which are about 18 litres a piece. Models with 100 litres are perfect for smaller families while large 350 litre models will fit around 19 bags of a large weekly shop.

The size of your kitchen will determine what size freezer you get, but why not take a look at our range of American fridge freezers if you’ve got the room? They’re packed with amazing tech that keeps your food fresh, and there’s loads of room to fit in everyone’s favourites. You can find out more about these massive appliances here.

What kind of freezer tech is there?

Freezers also keep your food nice and fresh. Keep your eyes peeled for models with fast freeze. When you do your weekly shop, it rapidly lowers your freezer’s temperature, so it locks in nutrients and keeps everything delicious.

What is a frost free freezer?

When it comes to defrosting your freezer, frost free models are an absolute lifesaver. They constantly circulate cool air around, preventing ice building up. This means you don’t have to defrost your food anymore and it stays in tip top shape!

Do freezer energy ratings matter?

Your freezer is on 24 hours a day, so energy efficiency is super important. Each model is given a rating from A+++ to B, with freezers on the higher end needing less energy to run, saving you money on bills.
