The A+ rated frost-free Beko CF5015APS is just 55cm wide, yet offers plenty of shelf and drawer space, so it could be ideal if you're looking for a slimline fridge freezer that will store a lot of fresh and frozen food. But will this fridge freezer keep cool as your kitchen heats up? We put it through our tough lab tests to find out.

Good for the price
Bought this although having a low score, it fitted in the area we had our old machine in which a lot of the best buy's were too wide for the area we needed it to fit into.The appliance is a good 12" higher than our old model, I'm tall so that helps & my wife can reach the top shelf, we just can't store stuff on the top of it like the old machine which is a good thing.Energy use is good uses just over 1Kw a day on average, our 9 year old one which this replaced used a bit over 2Kw so should see a big saving. Thermostat setting needs to be at about 5 to maintain the correct temperature highest setting is 6, we use a digital thermometer so we can keep an eye on the temp's so the Which review was correct. We buy mainly frozen food to store & don't freeze much from fresh so the poor review did not bother us. A tip I picked up from the internet was to use ice packs from the freezer to help chill a fridge if the temperature is not coming down, not sure if this makes any difference as we tend to top up the fridge rather than buy a whole fridge full of things to chill at once but I did notice when we first got it it did take ages to come down to temperature but I think having to set it to 5 was what threw us to start with.Amazing amount of storage compared to our last machine so am pleased with the purchase so far (6 months in)
