Quite Long Storage Time During Power Failure

Freezers of this age and spec have storage time during power failures of between 5h and 90h. The GCM27AW40 has one of the longer storage time during power failures (60 hours) amongst similar spec freezers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 60h storage time during power failure freezers currently available including the Siemens GC33MAW40 (£802.95) which is cheaper.

If you want a freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the GTP3156 (£631.99) (75h and cheaper), the GT 6122 Comfort (£699) (76h and cheaper), or the GTP 4656 Premium (£694) (90h and cheaper) all from Liebherr.

Other 42dB noise level freezers currently available which you might want to look at include the GC33MAW40 (£802.95), or the GC34MAW30 (£669.57) both from Siemens and both of which are cheaper.

Alternative freezers with a higher noise level that you might want to look at include the Bosch GCM33AW40 (£880.68) (42dB).
