Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value Product Delivered on time, helpful delivery men. Freezer quiet and economical, good size, with plenty of baskets. We like the on top display, easy to see green on/off light. Liked it so much we have today taken delivery of a John Lewis 300lt freezer,as a replacement for another old freezer! 02 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product We needed a replacement for our old chest freezer very quickly, John Lewis were able to delivery promptly, this new freezer seems to have much more internal space , it is almost silent in running and the lights on top show that it is indeed running. Altogether extremely pleased with the product and the supplier. 01 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
