Q & As

John Lewis JLCH400 Chest Freezer, A+ Energy Rating, 134cm Wide, White 4.8 5 18 18
Met all expectations We wanted a replacement for our 35 yr old Electrolux chest freezer which was slowly dying on us. We are extremely pleased with our decision to select this one from JL. The delivery was flawless. We selected the day and time which was just a week before Christmas. The call came at 6:45 from delivery and by 7:30 the old freezer had gone and the new one was placed in position in the garage. After the recommended 4 hours settling time, a wipe around the interior, the freezer was down to temperature within an hour of switching it on. It is quiet, easy to open with the protruding handle, controls are very conveniently placed and the interior light is more than adequate. The only downside are the 3 small baskets. However, having read the previous reviews, we kept our 3 larger baskets from the old Electrolux freezer (which fitted exactly) so have no complaints with the storage. Agreed the shelf created by the compressor unit, which previously had an internal wall rising from it, might present certain storage problems for some people. As for the defrosting features, too early to say. There is some evidence of frost build up which might be arising from a too low a temperature. I selected the recommended temperature setting but it does appear to be giving an internal temperature of around minus 22 C. I would definitely recommend this product from John Lewis. 03 January 2014
we like it Having not owned a chest freezer before, not sure we are a total position to comment, however its been great addition. We've been putting everything and anything in it (lots of prepared apples from our tree), but still haven't managed to fill it.. It feels suitably solid and so far no troubles at all, Initially I thought it was too deep and may end up with waggly legs sticking out the top while trying to go for the last frozen pizza, but its all been fine and plenty of room to move things around and find things with a minimum of effort. Also the guys that delivered it were brilliant, it was a bit of tricky install, but they installed it with any complaints. Thankyou JL as always, its exactly what it says it is on the Tin. 09 October 2013
John Lewis JLCH400 Chest Freezer, A+ Energy Rating, 134cm Wide, White This is an amzing freezer. Bigger than other brand names, comes with 3 baskets supplied. So quiet. Would recommend to anyone 14 December 2012
A freezer for every household We have found our new freezer excellent. It replaced one which had extra insulation but was very old. All the space in this new model is fabulous plus more room is available externally for the same internal capacity. it is a real bargain especially with money off the original price. Well done John Lewis! 03 December 2012
A great product that ticks all the boxes Very pleased with this chest freezer. It has the large capacity that I need and is far more efficient to run than the old one it has replaced. 26 November 2012
chest freezer excellent size, and very quiet and efficient. delivery service was outstanding and the product is exactly as described. we are delighted with it. 01 October 2012
Best freezer ever II bought this having bought an upright freezer two months previously from another store and realised I had to go back to a chest freezer for the food capacity. I looked at various models but came back to dear old faithful John Lewis who I know I can trust and their guarantees on their products are second to none - sold on the upright model to a friend and would advise that a chest freezer is still the best buy if you want to take advantage of cheap food discounts. 28 August 2012
large capacity freezer Having recently replaced our fridge we decided it was time to replace the freezer ie before we had to in a panic! We did a lot of internet research and decided based on cost and previous excellent service from John Lewis decided to buy from JL online, and were happy to have an own brand item. It was delivered at the time selected and placed in position by two very pleasant delivery men. The freezer is very sleek to look at and has lots of accessible space with no internal divisions which limited useful space in our previous one. the lid is nicely balanced so it is easy to open and does not drop down while you are looking inside. Good seal so little build up of ice. Very quiet in operation. I would recommend this unreservedly to anyone who wants a big freezer. 25 June 2012
