The Which? Best Buy award is given to
products with high total test scores that perform consistently well in
our rigorous lab tests and excel in all key areas.
We award the Energy Saver logo to
products that our testing shows are very energy efficient, meaning
they'll cost you less to run.
The Which? Don't Buy logo alerts you
to the products that performed extremely poorly in one or more key
areas of our tests.

The amount of fresh food that can be frozen to -18°C in 24 hours, this is important for taste and texture. If there's no star rating it means this test was not part of our testing when we reviewed this model - see the 'Freezing power' ratings for an idea of how powerful this freezer is.
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 fridge-freezer taking size into account.
Recommended thermostat setting
The manufacturers 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.
Freezer temperature stability
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.
Ease of defrosting
How easy it is to collect defrosted water from the freezer. Models with top marks are frost-free.
We research the reliability of freezers and give them excellent, good, satisfactory, poor or very poor ratings.

New freezer models are now labelled A+++, A++, A+, A, B or C, based on their energy consumption. An A+++ rating indicates the most efficient category, C the least. We've found energy labels aren't always accurate, so we calculate our own energy costs for each freezer we test.
