Hotpoint FZFM171G Freezer Review - Appliances Online

2 Reasons For

Hotpoint Freezers Have Good Reviews

Medium net capacity freezers produced by Hotpoint have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all freezers (not just medium net capacity freezers) and found that Hotpoint also has good reviews across its entire range.

Seven Shelves/baskets

The Hotpoint FZFM171 is a seven shelve/basket freezer. Most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and eight shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, FZFM171 owners rated this freezer 57%. This means that users are not that keen on this medium net capacity freezer.

Defrosting Problems

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it did not have a good defrost feature. Two years ago Amazon Customer gave the product a score of 1 stars and wrote “I will not have another frost free freezer in my house, this one did freeze up at the back and after switching it off to defrost the problems got worse” in their review of this freezer.

Running Costs Are High

The energy efficiency classification of this medium net capacity freezer is A+, however the FZFM171 is in the most expensive 10% of all 62 freezers of a similar age and spec that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FZFM171 is £672.

Very Small Freezing Capacity

Medium net capacity freezers that have been available for around the same time as the FZFM171 have freezing capacities of between 6kg/24h and 30kg/24h. With a freezing capacity of only 11 kilograms per 24 hours, the Hotpoint FZFM171 has a quite small freezing capacity compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that were released one year ago.

Average Noise Level

At 42 decibels, the Hotpoint FZFM171 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other freezers that were released more than a year ago.

We compared this freezer to all the other 42dB noise level freezers and we think because of it's better review score, the LEC TU55144 (£249.90), the Electrolux EC1501AO (£249.99), and the Gorenje FHE152 (£281.32) is also worth considering.

We compared this freezer to all the other 650mm deep freezers and we think because of it's better review score, the Indesit UIAA 12 (£248.00) is also worth considering.

We got this Hotpiont Freezer as we had a small chest freezer and are getting older it wasn't so easy bending. So we now have the Hotpiont FZM171G Freezer and we are delighted with it.
