Impressive gear - very functional with the separate fridge / freezer
I have run 3 way (gas) fridge freezers (Chescold) & the Engel MT 45FCP Combi 40 litre 2 way. There are pros & cons with both, but as for the Engel its a very impressive set up.
Very well built , very sturdy - I run it on a recent trip up through the Cape, perfect. The temperature gauge is a nice accurate function , I set the Freezer to about -12 & within a couple of hours its there (-12) . The Chescold takes a couple of days to work up to its capacity.

disappointed about ruggedness and reliability
Gold edition 45l only gets moved for occasional defrost/clean.
Stopped getting cold, compressor still works.Told by service agent to replace cooling unit at half the cost of a new fridge.
Contacted Engel Australia,they wrote back and said how disappointing it must be for me.
Placed fridge on ground , inverted with compressor end upwards and left for a day in that position.
Fridge now working again, (thanks not, service guy and Engel Australia)

Without a fault when you need it the most. Priceless
I have had my engel for 4 years it's been all over Australia in that time, into the dusty deserts of Western Australia mostly, and it has never skipped a beat, I even get to have ice cream in the middle of the desert, keeps drinks ice cold, meats stay perfectly cold, and milk and dairy has never gone bad. They have easy access and a light inside so you can see what your doing at night time. Thanks engel best fridges ever made.
