The new Indesit chest freezers easily adapt to consumer shopping needs
Indesit has introduced a new range of chest freezers (100 litre or 250 litre capacities) that can be switched between cooling and freezing modes on demand.
Featuring the exclusive Cool Switch function, the new range allows for the appliance to be converted from freezer temperature, of around -18°C, to fridge temperature, of around +4°C, in just one turn, while the easy to use Flexi Rack allows users to tailor the space to their exact needs and requirements. The dedicated rack makes it convenient for storing tall items or ensuring that smaller items stay immediately accessible and visible.
The counter-balanced lid and hinge system, available on the 250 litre Indesit OS 1A 250 H UK chest freezer, guarantees that the lid remains stable and in position, whatever the angle at which it is placed. This ensures that there is no danger from unexpected closures - essential for a family with young children.
The 250 litre model also features a flat back design that allows the consumer to position it flush against a wall to help maximise space in the room. As well as saving space and offering greater flexibility, the minimalist, grid-free design sees the external condenser moved from the back of the appliance to the interior front wall, making it easier to clean.
"Chest freezers continue to be popular with consumers who like to bulk buy, or freeze large amounts of pre-prepared meals for a constant all-year-round supply," notes Nick Mawby, category lead for Indesit cooling appliances says.
"The new Indesit range of chest freezers, designed with busy families in mind, combine generous capacity with practical innovation, and thanks to the Cool Switch function, the space can be utilised for frozen or fresh food depending on the consumers' needs at that exact time."
