      You could pay a lot more for a lot less. Looks great and works well.

      The Indesit CA55 is an economical and stylish fridge freezer with plenty of room for your fresh food.

      I previously owned an old fridge freezer that had the upper freezer compartment and always felt it was never enough storage for my frozen food so I began searching for something with more space. I did a quick search online and decided to visit Currys for a look at the ones on display to get an idea of the size.

      My kitchen is quite small so I needed something slimmer than the American style fridges and immediately spotted the Indesit CA55 in its striking black colour. Having browsed the range of other models, I wanted something that had sensible use of space. Inside the fridge there are two movable glass shelves, two generous salad and veg drawers in the bottom of the fridge and shelves built into the door that can house large milk containers, 2L bottles, small jars and at the top, an egg tray and butter shelf.

      I've found that the space inside the fridge is generous enough yet because the fridge is slim, the height may pose a problem for short statures reaching to the back of the top shelf.

      The freezer is nice and roomy, has four drawers which not all do and the upper drawer has a fast freeze function so you have the option to place items in there first. It also comes with ice cube trays but sadly no dedicated area for them to be housed in, I tend to keep them in the bottom drawer. You can easily see whats in each drawer thanks to the transparent fronts and they all individually slide out easily which makes it very easy to keep clean.

      I have an Indesit cooker in my kitchen - also in black - so this new addition fitted in well. You can choose to have the model in white or silver which may suit your kitchen better. It sometimes attracts finger marks on the doors as the seal around the doors are pretty tight but a quick pull is all it takes. The fridge I felt was a little noisy at first but it soon settles down and there are adjustable feet on the base if your flooring is a little uneven.

      Based on what I paid for the CA55, £239, it is excellent value for money. Indesit appliances come direct from the manufacturer and delivery was no hassle so I am very pleased with my purchase.

      Excellent value for money.

      I bought this Indesit CAA55 fridge freezer less than a year ago and have never looked back,it has both quality and quantity and has an A+ energy rating and 4 stars.The doors can be hung left or right and have a really tight seal when closed. the unit is quite quiet and unobtrusive and has adjustable feet It is very sturdy and substantial with lots of space inside along with an internal light. The fridge has two removable glass shelves,two see through deep chiller drawers for salad etc,my veg seems to last a lot longer since i started using this unit, and a large deep shelf at the base of the fridge which holds 4pint cartons of milk and the large 2 litre bottles of juice without a problem,above this are two slimmer shelves for condiments etc.The freezer has four see through drawers so i can see at a glance where an item is,one of the drawers is for super fast freezing food quickly which i find really useful as it means i do not have to put the whole unit on fast freeze.The unit is 55cm wide and fits the space i have it in perfectly by174cm high and stands tall and proud and looks good next to my kitchen units,(anyone five feet or under may struggle to reach the top shelf), and has a massive 234 litres of internal space. it comes in white,black,or silver.I chose white as it goes with the rest of the appliances and cupboards in my kitchen.Prior to buying this item i never really looked on Indesit as a brand i would choose and heard little if anything about its appliances,I thought This brand was from the days of yore and that i would be better with a more modern and popular brand, but how wrong i was and i am happy i opted for this item as it has turned out to be excellent value for money and built to last.It comes with an egg rack and an ice cube tray as well as an instruction booklet which gives a lot of helpful hints and tips on using the unit and setting it up along with a customer service helpline telephone number. For robustness and quality i would certainly recommend this fridge freezer to anyone looking to purchase a new one.When i bought this item it cost me around £200 because i had a voucher for £30.00 off and i got it delivered for free because i was spending over £100,i think i would struggle to get a quality used fridge freezer for this small amount and there would certainly not be a guarantee with it.So weighing it all up i am very happy with my purchase and the price i paid and Indesit is a brand i would recommend to family,friends and others and also one i would look to purchase if i were looking for an appliance any time in the future along with another one or two brands that i have bought.
