      A good small freezer

      This freezer is white and is 86cm high and 60.5cm wide, I measured those myself when I was in the department yesterday so know they're accurate but I couldn't get in to measure the depth so have taken the figure of 60cm from the internet. You should check the measurements like anything else before you buy it in case the dimensions have changed since this freezer was purchased and also to make sure it will fit in the space you have sorted out for it.

      The top is flat so if you want to have it standing upright instead of under a counter then you can do that and use the top to store things on. I did not have any say in where this freezer was located but it is in a sensible place in the staff room at work, ours is under a counter but it sticks out a little bit so it's like having an extra small shelf to use.

      Inside the freezer are three baskets for storing your food, these are solid plastic baskets that have small holes in the bottom for ventilation and to prevent the build up of ice inside the baskets if the freezer isn't cleaned out very regularly (and it doesn't look like it is!!). The top basket is a little bit smaller than the other two but that doesn't matter because everything fits in and people at work don't have too many spaces to search for their food at break time, there is no organisation of who keeps what where so it's like a home freezer in that way and the way the food is put inside makes it easy to find what you're looking for anyway because it makes sense that small or flat boxed are put in the top basket and bags and packets are best suited to go inside the bottom two.

      There is a dial on the front of the freezer that you turn from minimum to maximum for how cold you want your freezer, this one is always left central and I think that's the best place for it because everything stored in the freezer stays frozen but nothing ever has ice on it and the freezer itself does not ice up even though it's rarely cleaned and even more rarely defrosted!!

      This freezer has an energy rating of A+ but does not feature an automatic defrost so that is something that you will have to do manually if you decide you'd like to buy this one. Such a small freezer is very easy to defrost though and even though I haven't done this one I have defrosted enough small size freezers to know that a bowl of hot water in the bottom and some towels is enough to get it ready to be used again without very much work.
