Help and advice
Freezer capacity is measured in litres, with 18 litres being the equivalent of one bag of shopping. For example, a 150-litre freezer will give you enough room to store 8 shopping bags. Up to 350 litres is ideal for medium-sized households, holding up to 19 shopping bags of food, and anything above that is suitable for larger households.
Under-counter freezers sit under your worktop out of the way, while built-in models are hidden in a cabinet, often behind a door. Upright freezers stand proud in your kitchen and are usually much taller than built-in alternatives.
Some models have a special fast-freeze setting, allowing you to keep your frozen foods fresh after being at room temperature. It works by rapidly reducing the temperature in the freezer whenever you enable it.
Frost-free technology means that cool air is passed evenly throughout the freezer, preventing a build-up of ice.
Freezer energy ratings range from A+++ to D, with A+++ being the most energy efficient. You can check the energy ratings of your replacement options by comparing specifications.
