4 Reasons For

Very Long Storage Time During Power Failure

At 60 hours, the GT 5242 S has a very long storage time during power failure compared to most of the other freezers of a similar age and spec to the GT 5242 S. Across all the similar spec freezers that are a comparable age to the GT 5242 S the storage times during power failure range from 5h to 60h.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Freezing Capacity

At 24 kilograms per 24 hours, the Miele GT 5242 S has a fairly large freezing capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec freezers that came out more than a year ago. Freezers of this type and age have freezing capacities of between 8kg/24h and 30kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 18kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Very Short

With a height of only 919 millimeters, the GT 5242 S is one of the shorter freezers of this type and age amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age. The heights of comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the GT 5242 S range from 830mm to 1,900mm, and the average height is 1,600mm.

Freezers with a taller height that might also be worth considering include the Liebherr GP 2433 (£479.00) (1,447mm), or the LEC TU55144 (£249.90) (1,420mm).

Very Low Noise Level

Across all the freezers of a similar age and spec to the GT 5242 S the noise levels range from 38dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. The GT 5242 S has a quite low noise level (only 38 decibels) compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that were released one year ago.

If you are not concerned about having a higher noise level then you might also want to consider the Liebherr GP 2433 (£479.00) (40dB), the Neff G4655X7GB (£779.99) (40dB), or the Bosch GIN38A55GB (£754.99) (40dB).

2 Reasons Against

Very Wide

When compared to other freezers of a comparable age and spec to the GT 5242 S that we have checked the width of, the Miele GT 5242 S's width of 873 millimeters is one of the widest. The widths of freezers that have been around for a similar time to the GT 5242 S range from 540mm to 960mm, and the average width is 610mm.

If you are not worried about having a wider width then you might also want to consider the Siemens GS33VVW31 (£607.51) (600mm), or the Liebherr GP 2433 (£479.00) (600mm).

Very Deep

With a depth of 770 millimeters, the GT 5242 S is one of the deepest freezers that have been around for more than a year amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age. Across all the medium net capacity freezers that are a similar age to the GT 5242 S the depths range from 540mm to 770mm.

If you would consider a freezer with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the GS36NVI30G (£599.00) (650mm), or the GS33VVW31 (£607.51) (650mm) both from Siemens or the Bosch GSN36VW30G (£479.00) (650mm).
