Review of "Indesit CAA55K Fridge Freezer"
Thanks to everyone for the R&Rs much appreciated :0)
Wanting to update the colour of the appliances in our kitchen we decided to go Black , Yes it might show the fingermarks but what better reason could have for wanting to get the cleaning done ?I needed a Fridge Freezer to fit in a specific space , there aren't many choices out there if you only have 60 cms to work with ,but we searched online and found one that would be perfect for us . I ordered it and three days later it was delivered .( Big thumbs up to ao.com for the service and pricematching .)
The Indesit CAA55k comes in white as well , but as I said I wanted Black it was delivered directly into place into the kitchen .The first thing to strike you about this FF is the sheer size it stands at 174 cms making it really high , but this is by no means a bad thing it means there is more space inside .It has an A+ energy rating so you know its not going to gobble your electricity .This model isn't frost free though , which isn't a problem if you defrost on a regular basis , I'll go into that further in to the review .
The inside of the fridge has three door shelves , the bottom shelf has a large recess on the left hand side which means you can stand a 2 litre bottle of pop inside the door , it comfortably holds three 4 pint cartons of milk , you then have a dedicated dairy shelf complete with egg tray and butter dish and a higher shelf for either cheeses or small jars .In the bottom of the fridge there are two good sized salad crispers .I like the way that they have been designed as it means I can separate any salad according to date ,with the newest on one side and the not so new on the other . We eat a lot of salad and the drawers have comfortably fitted everything in with no overflow ...This is another one of the benefits of the FF being so tall .
There are three Glass shelves , one is static but the other two can be adjusted to suit your needs ,Handy if you have a large joint of meat !On the right hand side of the top shelf the thermostat sits just in front of the fridge light which is bright enough to illuminate the contents from the top to the bottom , the thermostat reel has a regulator running from 1-5 ( the recommended setting is 3 ) there is also a quick freeze switch located just beneath this , very handy if you have just been out shopping for frozen food and its in danger of defrosting ,The total capacity of the fridge is 150 litres ( net )
Opening up the freezer which is located at the bottom , you again have to give the door a good pull ( the build quality of this model is Outstanding )Inside there are four freezer trays with more than enough space to take a good family shop .They are all quite deep .Some freezers have graduating size draws this one they are pretty much equal .Total Freezer capacity 85 litres .
On the inside of the door there are handy pictures diagrams showing you what the optimum freezing dates are for certain foods ...picture of a cow fruit etc .Noise level is very low .I always have a fan running in my kitchen and when its switched off you cannot hear the operation of the fridge freezer at all ...
At the bottom of the freezer there is a pull out funnel which you use when defrosting , you need a small bowl to catch the water as it drains away . as long as you don't allow ice to build up inside this only needs to be done every few months .
The Best thing about this Fridge Freezer is that Indesit give you a free 5 year Guarantee on parts as well as 12 months warranty , they even provide a freephone number for you to register .
This is a must buy for anyone who needs an affordable good quality Fridge Freezer.
I paid £248 including delivery .Not only is it aesthetically pleasing its a solid piece of kitchen necessity...would I recommend it . Absolutely !
