2 Reasons For

Has an Icemaker

Unlike most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago which do not have an icemaker, the C55CS12 has an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Light

Fridges of this type and age have weights of between 26kg and 170kg. With a weight of only 56 kilograms, the C55CS12 is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

12 Reasons Against

Quite Small Fridge Gross Capacity

Across all the fridges of a similar age and spec to the C55CS12 the fridge gross capacities range from 4.2L to 450L. At only 142 liters, the C55CS12 has a fairly small fridge gross capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the C55CS12.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Gross Capacity

The total gross capacity of fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago range from 6.1L to 18,000L. With a total gross capacity of only 218 liters, the Essentials C55CS12 has a quite small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the C55CS12.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the C55CS12, the C55CS12 does not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the C55CS12 do not have a water filter. The C55CS12 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water filter and we think the Samsung RSG5UUMH (£1,049.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the C55CS12, the Essentials C55CS12 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The C55CS12 does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the C55CS12 also do not feature ice crushing.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also feature ice crushing that you might also want to look at including the Samsung RFG23UERS (£1,389.00).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Essentials C55CS12 does not have a super cool function. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the C55CS12 also do not have a super cool function.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a super cool function to this fridge freezer and we think the Liebherr IKBV 3254 (£1,686.05) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The C55CS12 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit
