Candy CSC1365WE review

Product alert

Don’t buy this fridge freezer - it has a potentially unsafe plastic back.

Our fire tests have shown that this type of backing dramatically increases the spread of fire, as it offers inadequate protection to the flammable insulation that is used in all refrigeration appliances. We are therefore only recommending models with flame-retardant backing.

We’ve been told this fridge freezer is being upgraded to have flame-retardant backing, so our Don't Buy recommendation relates to the plastic-backed version of this product that’s still in shops.

If you already own this product, be reassured the risk of a refrigeration appliance causing a fire in the first place is low. The material used in the backing allows an existing fire to spread, but isn’t the cause of fire itself.
