Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best chest freezer we have ever purchased. Recommended. Loads of useful space. Very pleased and a quality product. Far superior to previous Hotpoint which broke down after just two years use. Delivery men very helpful and efficient. 07 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by didn't get the chance This freezer was delivered as arranged but had to be sent back as it would not fit through an internal door. This is because the supplied measurements did not take into account that there is a handle the sticks out making the dimension larger. a moulded handle too so it could not be removed. I hope that you can amend your dimensions to take account of this so that other customers are not inconvenienced as I was. 23 June 2015

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
