    Product Overview

    Keep your favourite ice cream in tip-top condition with this chest freezer from Smeg. It has a 230 litre capacity and holds up to 12 bags of food shopping, meaning there’s lots of space for those soft scoop tubs. The fast freeze function is perfect when you return from the supermarket, as it rapidly freezes your groceries, locking in nutrients and flavours so the goodness and texture is protected. It has LED indicator lights too, that show you whether the inside temperature needs adjusting, which is simple to do with the twist of a dial. Just bear in mind that this model will need manually defrosting every now and then to keep things running smoothly.

    Great freezer

    Good size, features and price. Noticeably more energy efficient than my old freezer too.

    Great freezer but internal dimension not as wide and provided baskets shallow

    This chest freezer is great and is already saving me electricity. The only thing I hadn't considered was due to the extra insulation to give the better energy rating meant that its internal dimensions are smaller and none of my previous baskets now fit. The two baskets provided are quite shallow and don't help maximise on the storage space. So things have to be stacked underneath and access to the things at the bottom are not so easy. Power cable not very long so having to use an extension lead.

    Smeg CO232E

    It’s a chest freezer. As big cold boxes go it’s fine I suppose

    Well thought out and economical freezer.

    The freezer is fantastic. Easy to manoeuvre due to the wheels, easy to set up and once I’d left it to settle for 24hrs very quickly down to temperature. So much more spacious than our previous one and the Light makes it easy to find what you’re looking for even in the dark. I also seem to be using less electricity, probably due to the poor seal on my previous one but still this is bigger.

    • Connection £10

      We’ll get your new freezer in place, level the feet and take away all the bulky packaging for you. If your appliance comes with handles and they’re packaged separately, then unfortunately the drivers won’t be able to fit them for you.

    • Remove & Recycle £20

      If you’ve bought a new appliance but you don’t want us to connect it for you, all you’ll need to do is disconnect your old one and empty it, ready for us to pick up. Or, if you’ve ordered our connection service with a new appliance, we’ll disconnect your old one for you.

      If you haven’t bought a new appliance, we can still collect your old one and take it away for recycling. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.

    • Disconnection £5

      We’ll disconnect your old appliance when we deliver your new one

      • This includes disconnecting it from your water pipes if it’s plumbed in

      Make delivery even easier by selecting all three connection and disconnection services in the basket. In one trip we can:

      • Disconnect and recycle your old appliance
      • Safely install your new one 

      Just a quick note: if you’re buying a freestanding appliance to replace an old integrated one, we won’t be able to disconnect it

    • Unpack £4

      Appliances come with quite a bit of bulky packaging. We’ll unpack your item, let you inspect it then take away all of the plastic wrap and foam packaging.
