Temperature performance score (%) Expand to view more details.

Temperature performance is made up of ambient change (40%), fluctuations (30%), uniformity (15%), range (10%) and recommended or mid-setting (5%).

Energy efficiency score Expand to view more details.

A pass/fail measurement of whether a freezer achieves or exceeds it's claimed energy efficiency when set at -15C.

Warm-up score (%) Expand to view more details.

How well the freezer's insulation performs in a power failure.

How long it takes an empty freezer to cool the air to -13C in a temp-controlled room from the time it's switched on.

Ambient change score (%) Expand to view more details.

How the freezer copes with changes in ambient room temperatures, such as from summer to winter.

Features
Rollers Expand to view more details.

Rollers are useful for easy moving: when cleaning behind the freezer, for example. It should also have adjustable feet (or rollers) for levelling the freezer. Four rollers are better than two, provided they have brakes or adjustable feet to secure the freezer in place.
