|What is this?|
How quickly it can freeze fresh produce down to the target temperature of -18°C, as the faster food freezes the more nutrients it will retain and the longer it will last when it's defrosted. If there's no star rating it means this test was not part of our testing when we reviewed this model - see the 'Freezing capacity' ratings for an idea of how powerful this freezer is.
Compares energy use for each freezer taking size into account.
Recommended thermostat setting
The manufacturer's recommended thermostat setting should result in a temperature colder than -18°C. Fewer than two stars means you will have to adjust the thermostat setting until it matches the correct setting.
How closely the freezer maintains the correct temperature even when the room temperature changes. Five stars mean you won’t need to adjust the thermostat, while two stars means that you will.
Quietness and vibration
Five stars means the model is quiet, one star is noisy.
How reliable this brand of freezer is.
Ease of defrosting
How easy it is to collect defrosted water from the freezer. Models with top marks are frost-free.
