“ Brand: Essentials - Capacity: Fridge: 103 L / Freezer: 54 L / Energy rating: A „
Some of you might know I have moved home in the last few weeks, and I have gone from a two bedroom flat to a three bedroom house. The reason behind this was because the kids (who stay at mine 2 to 3 nights a week) are getting older, and as a girl and boy need their own space - this is to give them their own quiet time, for Borgette to have he own space to get changed, and also to stop them from killing each other. Sibling rivalry? Tell me about it!
The flat (which I rented) had its own fridge a freezer, but the house, which I also rent (hey, I'm divorced, I have no money! Exborg has all that!) did not. So upon agreeing to rent this new home, there began my quest to buy myself a fridge freezer. I had a few ideas in my head to begin with, such as getting a second hand one, but in the end decided the security of a new one (and the 1 year guarantee) was a better option.
I wanted something cheep, but good, I wanted energy efficient... I wanted something that was not too big, as my kitchen in my house is quite small and opens out into the dining room.
I checked out various places and nearly plumbed for one at Argos (but a slow website out paid to that!). I also checked out Tesco and a few others, but the C155CW10 was the one that caught my eye.
It is energy efficient and it has an 'A' rating. It is a great size too. My freezer at the flat was small and this always irked me, but this one has a lot of space (enough for me anyway) for those things I like to freeze. In fact, the Essentials C155CW10 is the ideal fridge freezer for people with a small amount of space, or possibly for those who simply don't need to have a mammoth fridge freezer in their kitchen. It is about 50 centimetres wide and just 143 centimetres high (that's about 4 foot 9 inches). There is a storage capacity of 100 litres for the fridge, and 52 litres for the freezer.
It has a 'flatback' design which means that the back of it can visible without ending up looking silly. If you have a power failure, then the fridge Freezer has a safe storage time of 19 hours.
You got the look...
The fridge freezer is white, slim and looks good, as far as fridges go. The fridge part is on top. The inside is white with glass panelled shelving. I usually get two litre bottles of milk, though, and I had to get rid of one of the shelves (which are plastic) on the door to accommodate this. There is a salad shelf (or in my case, beer shelf). The freezer has three shelf drawers which are not the biggest in the world, but are okay.
Going back to energy, the annual energy consumption is 256 kWh.
On the whole...
This is the ideal fridge if you have a space issue in your kitchen, or if you are similar to my situation or are single or a couple. It is pretty cheep - I paid 169.99 for mine from Curry's on line, and that included postage and packing.
The shelving is a bit wobbly in the fridge bit, but once you fill it with margarine, cheese etc, then it is not much an issue.
