UK buyers on the hunt for an energy-efficient tall freezer with a massive storage capacity, one that freezes brilliantly and doesn’t need defrosting; look no further – the Beko FFP1671W could be the model for you.
Beko’s FFP1671W has an overall net capacity of 250 litres – or a whopping 13 average shopping bags – across seven expansive compartments, meaning you could more or less stock up for a zombie apocalypse and still have a few choc ices left over. It comes with a variety of cool features (excuse the pun) such as a fast freeze option if items are starting to melt and urgently require a rapid cool-down. There’s an ice cube tray and if the freezer is beginning to get too warm there’s a handy temperature warning light - useful if you’ve left the door open too long. Beko’s Freezer Guard technology also means you can keep the freezer outdoors or in a garage without any loss of function – it can withstand highs of 43oC and lows of -15oC.
This unit is brilliant at bringing down and maintaining the temperature of your goods. Quick freezing is an important function for those of you keen on healthy living, as nutrients get “locked in” to food if frozen with sufficient speed. There’s a recommended level on the thermostat, so when you set up your Beko simply point the dial in the right spot and away you go – simple as that. Finally, the A + Energy Rating will ensure satisfyingly low energy bills.
The freezer isn’t without its flaws. It makes a bit of noise and its control dial is fiddly, but this is more than compensated for by its excellence in other areas.
- Freezes well
- Maintains temperatures effectively
- A + Energy Rating
- Not the easiest to use
- Gaps inside make it tricky to clean
- Not as powerful as some direct rivals
Why you should buy it:
The Beko FFP1671W is a great freezer for a decent price. It’s not without a couple of minor flaws but overall it’s spacious, freezes rapidly, is energy efficient and comes with some awesome features. Highly recommended.
