Cheap freezers: what you should keep in mind

What can you expect from an affordable freezer? For example, is No Frost already an option for freezers of € 250, or is this not realistic? Read here what you can expect from an affordable freezer.

Freezers up to € 250

Chest freezer and compact freezer

Up to an amount of € 250, you will mainly find affordable compact freezers and small freezers without anti-icing. You must defrost the freezer regularly. A basic class freezing quality is to be expected in this range. The freezers do what they have to do, but don't expect any extras. For affordable freezers, you need a little more budget.

What you can expect at a glance:

  • Compact and small chest freezer
  • No anti-ice buildup (defrost 5 to 6 times a year)
  • Basic class cooling quality
  • Mechanical temperature control (no precise freezing temperature)

Freezers from € 250 to € 350
