Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure
Across all the recently released freezers the storage time during power failures range from 5h to 110h. With a storage time during power failure of only 12 hours, the Siemens FI18NP31 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst medium freezer net capacity freezers of this age.

Very Large Freezer Gross Capacity
Latest freezers have freezer gross capacities of between 150L and 270L, and the average freezer gross capacity is 220L. When compared to other medium freezer net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to this freezer that we have assessed, the FI18NP31's freezer gross capacity of 266 liters is one of the largest.
Released Over Four Years Ago
This freezer was released in July 2013.
High Running Costs
Whilst this Siemens freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the FI18NP31 is in the most expensive 1% of all 139 new medium freezer net capacity freezers that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the FI18NP31 will cost £752 over 24 years to run.
