Freezer

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 13 hours, the CAA 55 S has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to this fridge freezer. Fridges of a similar type and age to this fridge freezer have storage time during power failures of between 10h and 32h, and the average storage time during power failure is 17h.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 13h storage time during power failure fridges currently available including the IN D 2412, or the BIAA 12P F K both from Indesit or the Bosch KIN86VS30 which all of have better reviews.

If this Indesit fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to consider the RTAA42P (14h and higher rated), or the RTAA42S (14h and higher rated) both from Hotpoint or the Bosch KGN34VW25 (£299.99) (14h and higher rated).
