Indesit fridge freezer reviews
Indesit fridge freezers generally score well or excellently in our tests for fridge and freezer stability, which is useful as it means you won’t have to adjust the thermostat if the room temperature changes.
They also tend to score well for noise and most models score excellently for uniform fridge temperature, which is important as it means you don’t need to store certain foods in particular places.
However, scores for fridge power (how quickly the fridge cools to the correct temperature) and freezer power (the amount of food it can freeze to -18°C in 24 hours) range from average to very poor. Several models also score very poorly for ease of defrosting.
If you’re considering buying a specific Indesit fridge freezer, check how well it scores for a variety of criteria by visiting our fridge freezer test results. Here you can also find out how expensive each fridge freezer is to run.
We’ve found energy labels don’t always tell the full story when it comes to energy efficiency, so we use our lab results to calculate annual running costs for each fridge freezer.
The running costs for the Indesit models we’ve tested range from £17 to £48 a year, so make sure you check the individual specifications of each model in our fridge freezer reviews to find one that is cheap to run.
As well as testing fridge freezers in our lab, we also survey thousands of fridge freezer owners to find out how happy they are with their fridge freezer brand and whether they’d recommend it to a friend. Check out our owner’s views page to find out how Indesit is rated for customer satisfaction.
