Key Features

Freezer Net Capacity

'Freezer Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the freezer, measured in litres.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Height

Noise Level

The noise level of the freezer, measured in decibels (dB).

Fewer dB means a quieter freezer, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.

Storage Time During Power Failure

The length of time during which freezer can store food without mains power connection.

A longer storage time means that there is less chance of your food being defrosted and ruined by an untimely power failure.

Shelf / Basket

The amount of shelves and/or baskets in the freezer.

More shelves means more space to store and organise food in your freezer, which is helpful.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency Class
