The only one that would fit.
When we built our house back in the 80's we had a space for the fridge and freezer, but when the freezer died we had problems finding one that would fit into the space. There was only one, the Fisher & Paykel upright freezer. It was horrible. It had baskets instead of shelves and despite being larger than the old one we weren't able to fit as much into it. It was noisy and expensive to run, and it didn't last very long at all, certainly not as long as the old one. So in the middle of Covid we had to buy a new one. Freezers were in short s...upply apparently with a 6 to 8 week wait. We went from retailer to retailer in search of a freezer we could even look at eventually arriving at The Good Guys where we found yet once again the only freezer that would fit into the space was the Fisher & Paykel. It cost more than the others and has the worst energy rating, which is most disappointing, but it's styling with the long metal handle is pleasing on the eye. When you open it there has been no change whatsoever with the same old drawers. I had bought some shelves for the old one so I decided to keep them when the old one was taken away. This one is MUCH quieter than the old one, and it seems due to it's lower energy rating it does keep food longer than most other brands. So despite it not being top of my choice list it is quieter and looks better, but it has the worst energy rating and was expensive, but not as expensive as a new kitchen if I wanted another brand. It does keep the food frozen though which is the reason I bought it.

Good morning from Fiji
I am very much interested in buy the upright freezer RF388FLDW1 which will cost me FJD2899.00 and after reading the review I am bit reluctant as it is noisy and consums lot of power. Once we buy any goods in Fiji is is very hard to negotiate with the retailers. Could you please advise will be a wise buy or j have to look for some other brand as it has wire baskets.

Hi Javelene, No it isn't noisy and it does use a little more electricity than some but you can keep food frozen for longer than other freezers. I bought 2 shelves because I'm not keen on baskets but I sort out what goes on a shelf and what goes into the baskets. Hope this helps.
