Ive been looking for chest freezer for a while.



At this time of year, I have found it just as easy to go outside without a vest tbh.

Looks like a good deal!

Absolute cheapest freezer may = reliability issue.
Freezer failure = loss of food

It's a pretty small one - depends on where you're going to put it etc.

just ordered one, getting delivered saturday.

Assuming low price means unreliability = non-sequitor

ordered for sunday delivery.
quidco also available.
good price and good reviews

you will find the above is mathematically correct
this deal = hot

very small but price is good. Seems a hassle having a small upright chest freezer as you have to get all the top stuff out to get things at the bottom.

You couldn't fit a body in it, even if you cut the limbs off first and put the head in the fridge.

That's true, but they tend to be more efficient than uprights, at least if you open the door!

My experience of Haier...awful. But, saying that, it's probably no worse than any other cheap stuff (I think they make some of the own brand products) and so...probably good for the price. Although, from reports online, my washing machine made by them won't be touched by engineers as there isn't any repair manual out there.

Some quite favourable reviews of the product: http://www.reevoo.com/p/haier-bd103gaa-106ltr

Note the comments about not working too well in very cold rooms; the same is true of most other freezers-they don't work well in sheds or uninsulated garages! If you intend getting a freezer for the shed, get one that's specifically designed to operate at a low ambient temperature.

Generally, chest freezers are more efficient than uprights, so are better for long term storage of food rather than day to day use.

Haier is a very large Chinese manufacturer and they make all sorts of things, some under their own brand and some for other people. Most of their own brand stuff is OK, but built down to a price. Whilst I wouldn't necessarily buy a Haier washing machine due to the difficulty in getting it repaired, freezeers are generally reliable so repair issues shouldn't be much of an issue. If it breaks before the year is out, send it back!

Seems a bargain though, useful for stocking up on all that Christmas food!

I don't understand that review. The manual doesn't say anything about it cutting out below a certain ambient temperature as far as I can see. The problem with low ambient temperatures is in cheap fridge-freezers which only have one thermostat and rely on a certain range of ambient temperatures to maintain the balance internally between fridge and freezer. If the ambient temperature goes too low the fridge, containing the thermostat, will hardly ever need to be cooled with the result that the freezer is hardly ever cooled and so thaws. This problem obviously can't occur with a stand-alone freezer.

Climate class T=18-43℃

I assumed that must be -18, but nope, it's 18 alright

I think that's because the refrigerant's boiling point has to be much lower than room temp? So their choice of refrigerant will change the range of room temperature that the freezer will operate in.

Ah thanks both. I guess they are more critical nowadays for efficiency reasons. I'd find it fairly astonishing that it wouldn't work below 18C - any saving of energy from having an efficient freezer would be wiped out by having to heat the room to that temperature all the time!

GREAT DEAL

Yes the same is true with fridges. We had one in our static caravan that stopped working when the temperature dropped below 16 degrees oO Why sell such goods when we rarely get above that in summer(_;)
