Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chest Freezer Lost my last freezer after a lightning strike and power cut. I have bought this as it has a long safe time in the event of a power failure and is designed to work in a garage. It's not a huge size, but should compliment the kitchen fridge freezer well Sadly, it has only one basket supplied. 04 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value, lots of space This is good value for a compact chest freezer, and even at this size you can get a LOT of stuff inside compared to a combined fridge/freezer (even a very big one). Note that this freezer comes with just one basket that is supported on the top ledge, so everything else just gets piled up inside in a big mess - if you've got any significant amount of stuff in here it quickly gets hard to find what you're after, or know what's in there. Also this is not frost-free; after a month of use the inside is already coated in a thin layer of frost, which will no doubt keep building up over time. On the plus side, this does mean that ice cubes don't just evaporate away, as tends to happen with frost-free freezers. 16 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Freezer We replaced our 30 year old freezer with this John Lewis model. The delivery and collection of our old freezer was exactly on time, the new one is very quiet, and the light in the lid is very useful to see what is inside. 24 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A year on Works OK but after nearly a year of use I am now in a position to point out a few issues. After only a couple of weeks the internal light bulb stopped working. The old chest freezer it replaced was over 20 years old and still on its original bulb. Staff at the Nottingham branch showed no interest in this initial fault and did not offer to supply a new bulb for the faulty one fitted to their freezer. The replacement which I had to buy is still working nearly one year on, but I do feel that John Lewis should have accepted responsibility. The freezer is supplied with only one food storage basket. Fortunately I had kept the baskets from my old chest freezer and was able to adapt them to be used in the new freezer. The biggest issue however is the main disappointment. The online product details still states that this freezer has technology that means it may only need defrosting every 5 years. No chance. I have defrosted it earlier in the year and it will soon need defrosting again. However, it was a good price, smart looking and one of the few on the market that state that they work in a garage. 10 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigger than it looks We bought this freezer because we wanted one that had a better star rating than the old one and had a bit more space in it. This one was wider but the same depth - or so we thought. However, it has hinges in the back and a handle on the front which each add about 2 inches to the measurements. This made it really difficult to get through the doorway. Apart from that, it's really roomy and seems to be performing well. 01 September 2014
