Choosing your Fridge or Freezer

Your refrigerator keeps your food fresh, drinks perfectly chilled and helps you avoid waste by freezing food for use when it suits you.

Lec fridges, freezers and fridge freezers are available in a broad range of sizes and configurations, so where do you start?

Whilst you browse our product range, consider the size and layout of your kitchen, the type of food you buy and how much you need to store.

Here’s a useful guide to help you choose

Where Will It Fit?

If you’ve a space under your kitchen work tops, then one of our Under Counter models is what you need. In a choice of 45, 50, 55 or 60cm widths, they’ll slot nicely into your kitchen.

If your kitchen would best be described as ‘bijou’ and you’ve got less space to play with, our compact table top drinks fridges and mini freezers could be exactly what you need.

When height and floor space are not an issue, you can choose from our broad range of Fridge Freezers, or our Tall Larders and Freezers.

How big should it be?

If it sometimes feels like you’re feeding the five thousand, you probably need some additional storage capacity. We have chest freezers that offer up to an enormous 420 litres of storage space, and our Tall Larders and Freezers offer between 6 and 9 cubic feet.

If that sounds like more than you need, our Fridge freezers provide the perfect combined storage solution for your fresh and frozen produce.

What are the running costs?

You wouldn’t buy a car without checking that it is fuel efficient, and cooling appliances are no different. Remember, your fridge or freezer is the only appliance that stays on 24/7, so it’s important to choose an energy efficient model.

The good news is that all of Lec’s products are now rated A+ for efficiency. No one does energy saving like Lec.
