The Indesit SAN400 is a good fridge for the money. Bought as part of a pair with the Indesit UFAN400NF Freezer, we were delighted with the modern, clean look in our kitchen. We needed to change our tall (new!) fridge freezer, because my mother's osteoarthritis made her shrink from an already 'vertically challenged' 5ft, to under 4ft 9ins - and she couldn't reach anything in the top fridge. The SAN400 is called a tall fridge, but for us littlies, it is still very easy to reach, organise and find everything on the shelves.
There are 5 deep shelves and they can be adjusted a little to different heights, so that most litre bottles can be fitted upright on the fridge shelf as well as in the door shelves. An additional shelf would be useful - but is not essential if you don't mind stacking. The wider shelves do allow you to see the things inside quite clearly. There is also a deep salad /vegetable drawer at the bottom. There are 5 door shelves of differing heights which all sized jars, bottles and cartons can fit in.
The super cool feature is very efficient - but you must remember to switch it back off again; we forgot, and managed to freeze our salads! (No doubt where the people who named the 'iceberg' lettuce got the idea..!) Other than that, the controls are effective and things are kept at a regular temperature. Having two white units side by side makes the kitchen look larger - and must look quite trendy because it impressed the teenage grandchildren.
Overall, we are very pleased with it - and my mother loves it! After struggling for a while, she is delighted that she can now actually see and find the food in the fridge !! (I'm sure I catch her stroking it when I go into the kitchen sometimes...)
Paid £290 for an Indesit SAN 400 fridge, it arrived very quickly worked well for one week then cold on the bottom two shelves only whilst the top shelves got really quite warm 10/11c. Phoned Indesit who arranged for engineer to come almost a week later, on the morning he was due he phoned us to say he would not be able to fix it and would arrange an uplift and replacement. One week later we are still waiting and after phoning Indesit today have been told at least another 10 days. One of the reasons we chose this model is because of Indesits reputation, well never again this will be our last Indesit purchase! Take my advice and look at alternative models.
