4 Reasons For

Shallow

The average depth of freezers of this type and age is 700mm. At only 665 millimeters, the EC2831AOW is quite shallow compared to most of the other freezers of this age and type.

Alternative freezers with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the A93200HLW0[pl_3013360_price] (665mm), or the A92500HLW0[pl_3013359_price] (665mm) both from AEG or the Smeg UK26PXNF3[plb_2895336_price] (667.1mm).

Chart Edit

Very Short
