- Deliveries tend to quite fast, reliable and it gets delivered in perfect working condition.

Part 5: Conclusion & Optional Feedback
This fridge freezer is certainly not the best fridge freezer in terms of features and I don’t like the fact that it needs to be manually defrosted but for the price level, this fridge freezer from Candy actually performs quite well in terms of noise level, storage capacity and shelf layout for various grocery types. The fact that it has the reversible door is another big plus and the warranty also of 10 years on parts is excellent in our opinion. If price is your main focus or priority, then you should choose the Candy Fridge Freezer CSC1365WE option above which has been seen on sale for less than £200 from time to time.
