This fridge freezer has a 50/50 split but in spite of this the internal dimensions of the freezer are much smaller than the fridge, the fridge having a 134 litre capacity while the freezer is a mere 63 litres. That is significantly smaller than my previous freezer but I supplement my freezer space with an undercounter freezer as I am a keen cook and like to batch cook for freezing, it has taken me a while but I've had to learn to utilise space better across both freezers since this appliance was installed.
The fridge freezer is quietly efficient, it hums slightly but it's a comforting sound that blends into the background. Everything kept in either the fridge or freezer sections retain the correct temperature, the fridge foods being kept chilled whilst frozen food is held at a comfortable solid yet non iced consistency. No food stored in the Beko CF5533 freezer has suffered freezer burn and things defrost to a natural taste and texture including all meats, chicken, fish and breads. The ice cube tray is a handy addition and grooves along the bottom mean I can decant the cubes from the tray and refill it whilst leaving the loose cubes in the wide freezer tray.
The reversible doors are each trimmed with anti bacterial seal to prevent bacteria from coming into the fridge from the wider environment. We did reverse the doors after a week of use when it became clear the original position was not suitable, it was an easy task accomplished very quickly.
The shelves inside the fridge can be adjusted and the lid of the salad crisper drawer operates as a third shelf. Three shelves may seem an inconvenience to some but I welcome the design as I often store bulky foods and containers in the fridge so the extra room created by having one fewer shelf than usual is good news. I like the crisp finish of the glass shelves and find them to be incredibly easy to keep clean, unlike the wire shelves in my previous fridge freezer that caused much extra work to remove the collected debris in each crevice.
This is an excellent fridge freezer that I have been happy with from day one. The reduced size of the freezer space caused me concern to begin with but it has proved to be an advantage as it has forced me to look at how I use the space in my under counter freezer and in my view I have improved my efficiency in the kitchen by choosing a smaller freezer in my main appliance.
