Major domestic appliance manufacturer, Hotpoint understands the importance of capacity and space management in the kitchen, particularly as the issue of food waste is increasingly becoming a global concern. Committed to developing flexible and innovative solutions, the Hotpoint range of chest freezers extend storage possibilities, allowing you to store a multitude of food, and to freeze your leftovers, reducing the amount of food commonly wasted by households.
According to research commissioned by Hotpoint, UK households are throwing away 7 million tonnes of food every year – enough to fill 40 million wheelie bins, or 100 Royal Albert Halls*. With the issue of food waste becoming more prominent, Hotpoint believes that providing practical solutions to reduce waste in the home is the most effective way to encourage consumers to lead more sustainable lifestyles.
The Hotpoint range of chest freezers is available in three models, which all have different capacities (252 litres, 312 litres and 390 litres) and were developed to ensure long lasting food freshness. As well as boasting an extensive capacity, the Hotpoint 312 litre chest freezer (CS1A 300 H FA UK.1) benefits from adaptable storage, making it ideal for storing food bought in bulk, as well as batch cooking pre-prepared meals. What’s more, thanks to the Super Freeze+ function, food can be frozen quickly, even when it has just been cooked, freezing hot food at a temperature of +70˚C to -18˚C, allowing its original taste and texture to be retained.
Consumers are increasingly adopting healthier lifestyles, often aided through batch cooking healthy meals packed with fresh ingredients. As a result, it is more important than ever that freezers have the right capacity for the needs of individual families and are flexible to store pre-cooked dishes. The freezer will keep pre-cooked, family favourites, fresher for longer, helping to retain their original colour, nutritional value, texture and taste. The Hotpoint chest freezer (CS1A 300 H FA UK.1), with its impressive 312 litre capacity, allows you to store large quantities of ingredients and pre-prepared meals, for a constant supply of healthy food.
The Hotpoint chest freezer (CS1A 300 H FA UK.1) is also ideal when entertaining guests or hosting dinner parties, as it benefits from flexible storage solutions that allow you to tailor the space to suit your individual needs and requirements. For example, wire baskets provide a convenient place to store smaller items including ice cream and ice packs, as well as fresh herbs from the garden, ensuring that they stay immediately accessible and visible.
The chest freezer further boasts powerful LED lighting to increase visibility of items within the freezer. In addition, the freezer benefits from innovative FrostAway technology, which reduces ice formation by up to 50 per cent** and reduces the need to defrost regularly, saving you time and allowing you to get back to caring for the things you value most.
Catherine Balderson, Senior Hotpoint Brand Manager says: “Our mission at Hotpoint is to help consumers reduce food waste in their homes, and our range of chest freezers incorporate a variety of technologies to preserve food, keeping it fresher for longer. As well as providing the ideal place to store large quantities of food, the range of chest freezers from Hotpoint combine flexible solutions with a generous capacity, extending storage possibilities for users and ensuring long lasting food freshness”.
