We were looking for a fridge-freezer to replace our old Hotpoint model, which served us well for twelve years, and this fridge freezer was about the same size and was a 'Which' best buy.
John Lewis were also offering a three year guarantee, which is not to be sneezed at. We find that if an appliance is faulty you normally find out before three years of use.
We were quite disappointed that we could not find a flat back model, which our old Hotpoint was, and which you could push back against the wall without the side view of the freezer coils. However, on the whole, this fridge freezer serves our needs and appears to work very efficiently.
The fridge area has three storage shelves, a Fresh Box for cheese,bacon and cooked meats etc. It has an enormous vegetable and salad box taking up about a quarter of the space and I would have preferred this to be smaller and an extra storage shelf.
The freezer has three drawers, although the bottom one is very shallow and does not fit much in.
A very good point is that it has an alarm to warn you if you leave the door open and the temperature starts to drop.
I ddo not like the inner door storage as much as my old Hotpoint. The shelves are very shallow and you have to store milk sideways.
I do think John Lewis should show a detailed picture of the inside layout of the appliance as this is an important area in the choice of a fridge-freezer.
We bought one of these when we moved into our new house. Our kitchen isnt that big but I wanted a decent sized fridge freezer. I was going to get one of the american types with ice dispenser but the wife managed to talk me out of it as they were just to wide.
So we had a look round and found the ideal one in John Lewis. Its their own brand which is a good thing as they all come with a three year warranty. We chose the Silver JLFFW1807 (its an extra £100 and is offically called theJLSS1808).
The fridge is huge (240L) it has 3 adjustable, easy-clean glass shelves and houses a handy 5 bottle wine/chiller storage rack, which tilts to keep wine in optimum condition. There's also a large pull-out salad/crisper with divider and a covered dairy compartment. We thought that this would be ideal space especially at Xmas.
The 4-star frost free (74L) freezer has 3 removable, transparent drawers and a 'quick-freeze' function which reduces the temperature for a set time so freshly added food is frozen quickly to preserve its quality, while existing contents are kept frozen.
It looks amazing and more importantly does the job.
