Whirlpool ARC5553/2 Fridge Freezer, £245 delivered, from Appliances Online

It's a fridge freezer. It's big. It seems to get good reviews. And it's cheap...

The blurb:
The Whirlpool ARC5553/2 Fridge Freezer comes in a stylish white colour. The ARC5553/2 has an efficient A energy rating. This Fridge Freezer has a fridge capacity of 212 litres.
It boasts by having an innovative auto defrost feature that ensures the ARC5553/2 Fridge Freezer element can perform efficiently by preventing any ice build up and affecting its performance. The Fridge Freezer split is 60/40. To offer peace of mind the Whirlpool ARC5553/2 free standing Fridge Freezer also comes with a 1 year warranty.



Note that the price is £244 (which is considerably cheaper than I could find elsewhere). Standard delivery is free if you sign up for a trial of Which? magazine, costing £1. (It does this automatically at checkout - you can opt out and pay delivery, which was about £30 if memory serves.)
Unless you're keen to get the magazine get it canceled straight away, or you'll be paying about £8 per month.

Fridge at the top, freezer at the bottom. The freezer's fairly big, the fridge is huge. The whole thing is around 6' 3" tall.

Got mine this morning. Build quality looks good, and it's nice and quiet. And did I mention it's huge?

If you don't fancy the "stylish white" there's also a "satina mist" - but it's fifteen quid more...

sorry wouldn't have a whirlpool item if it was given to me. we're on our 3rd (that's right 3rd) replacement whirlpool freezer in 2 years, all replaced under warranty granted, but they fight you all the way, and are so slow in paying up for lost food etc.

Had one of these. The first was sent back because it made a noise like a chicken (seriously!). Second one was fine. Nice and big though.

I've got one of these, if I remember correctly the instruction manual states that it might make a lot of weird noises amongst them it listed the noise of a chicken, I remember because we thought it was funny.

Ours is two years old and has started pouring water on the floor, I guess the seal must be broken somewhere but I can't find where

Think I'll keep my old fridge freezer and get a chicken - the noise and cleaning up after it will be annoying but unlike the fridge-freezer it lays eggs.
