Trying to create a great list of cheap chest freezers under £100 has been a challenge here in the DealFeed office, there are so many to choose from and nearly 90% of the chest freezers at Argos, Currys, Asda, Tesco Direct etc are mostly above the £150 to £200 mark. This article picks the some of the Tesco chest freezers that might keep your food frozen this winter.
Thankfully there are a few chest freezers out there at the popular retailers that dip under £100 (mostly at Currys) either when on offer or are part of the value/essentials range. Don't expect many (if any) top brands to be featured in this list as these are all budget chest freezers that are quite small compared to the bigger, better and far more expensive products you can find at retailers like Argos, Asda, Currys and AO to name just a few.
What to expect in this list? Because of the price point you can expect to find budget brands but low capacity chest freezers ranging from around 60 litres to 140 litres typically. There are some that can be used in outbuildings such as sheds and garages but check which before you buy. Expect to pay running costs of around £23 to £26 per year (at £0.15 per kwh).
Amazon Chest Freezers are always a popular option if you want a great low price and rapid delivery with Amazon Prime. Amazon always have a great selection of chest freezers and you can do lots of research simply looking over the 5 star reviews at the bottom.
