It had been a long time since I purchased a freezer as my current one was very old. In fact, if I didn't retire it, it would have been due a long service award. After much deliberation the only one that looked a possibility was the Bosch Logixx. I already had a fridge in this range and was very pleased with its performance, so I paid my money and it was duly delivered. I have not been disappointed with my decision.
The majority of freezers tend to have wire baskets which I don't particularly like, however the Bosch Logixx has plastic drawers. The drawers have a carry handle on each side making them easy to lift in and out of the freezer. The drawers are easy to clean and if, for example a bag of peas bursst, the contents are contained within the drawer rather than spread throughout the freezer. One of the drawers is very deep which is handy for large items - at last I have somewhere to put the turkey at Christmas without having to rearrange the whole freezer. There is also a narrow drawer at the top of the freezer; mainly used for ice cube trays.
There is a Fast Freeze option if you are placing fresh food in the freezer, however, if it is only small quantities you do not need to switch this on. If the door is left open for more than 30 seconds an alarm goes off. I have found this handy if I haven't quite closed the door properly. At least the contents aren't quietly defrosting without you knowing about it. The freezer comes with 2 large refreezeable ice packs which help delay food defrosting in the event of a power failure. (I find they serve a dual purpose, as I also use then in my cool box when going food shopping).
I have to say, the best part of this freezer is the fully automatic No Frost system which means you do not have the chore of defrosting the freezer. A job I certainly do not miss!
