Looking for the right freezer will come down to factors like the amount of food you need to store and the space available in your home. Your budget will also have an effect on your final choice, and you may consider looking at new, refurbished and used items to widen your selection.
If you are looking at refurbished and used products, check out its condition before making your purchase to make sure it's right for you. You can also shop by brand if you prefer, looking at options from well-known names like Beko, Kelvinator, LG and Bosch.
Narrowing your selection by size is a good way to start shopping for chest style freezers. They range from smaller sizes like 140 litres, up to larger 360 litres sizes. Brands include Whirlpool, Bush, Hotpoint and Swan all have versions if you have a trusted name in mind. Chest freezers are a great second freezer for kitchens, utilities and garages. Some available products include a Fridgemaster 95 litre freestanding chest, and a Logik 199 litres black chest freezer.
Under Counter Freezers
If you have space under your kitchen counters or under a countertop elsewhere, such as a garage, these styles can work perfectly. The same range of big brands are available, or you can shop for unbranded items. You can find products like a Bush under the counter freestanding freezer and a silver Indesit version. You can also check out other features, such as ice makers and frost-free styles.
For those with more space, upright freezers will max out your freezer capacity. These models are typically taller and slot in well at the end of a kitchen counter.
There are items such as a Curry's 4-foot upright freezer, the Beko 250 litres freestanding upright model and a silver upright Hotpoint freezer. Often, used items are affordable ways of finding bigger freezers like this for less.
