Fast Freeze Function

The Zanussi ZFC321WA has a fast freeze function (as does the Russell Hobbs RHUCFZ3W), however the Candy CFU130EK, the GE FCM5SKWW and the LEC U5511W do not have this feature. More ...

The Fast Freeze function is ideal for freezing fresh food straight from your garden or the supermarket. Lowers the temperature of the freezer to freeze any newly added fresh food quickly. This function preserves the flavour, nutritional value and texture of the food, whilst protecting already frozen food.

A fast freeze function is ideal for quickly freezing a large amount of food - it is especially good for preserving the nutrients in fresh vegetables.

A Lot Larger Freezing Capacity

The Zanussi ZFC321WA has a freezing capacity of 14kg/24h, but the Candy CFU130EK is only a 5kg/24h freezing capacity freezer (9kg/24h smaller) and the LEC U5511W is only a 4kg/24h freezing capacity freezer (10kg/24h smaller). More ...

A larger freezing capacity means that a larger amount of food can be frozen in a shorter amount of time.

128L Larger Freezer Capacity

Zanussi ZFC321WA is 213L gross capacity, but the Candy CFU130EK is only a 120L gross capacity freezer (93L smaller) and the LEC U5511W is only an 85L gross capacity freezer (128L smaller). More ...

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Temperature Alarm

The Zanussi ZFC321WA has a temperature alarm, and so does the Candy CFU130EK, whereas the GE FCM5SKWW, the LEC U5511W and the Russell Hobbs RHUCFZ3W do not. More ...

Freezers with a temperature alarm can detect when the temperature inside the freezer has risen too high. This could be because the door has been left open, or due to a power cut or due to a failure on the freezer itself. Once this is detected an audible alarm will sound so that you know to check the freezer.
