5 Reasons For

Narrow

The MBC55249 is fairly narrow (only 540 millimeters) compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for more than a year. Fridges of a comparable type and age to the MBC55249 have widths of between 450mm and 610mm, and the average width is 550mm.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Net Freezer Capacity

The smallest net freezer capacity of fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the MBC55249 is 4.5L, the largest is 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 63L. The MBC55249 has a fairly large net freezer capacity (89 liters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the MBC55249.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Bosch KGN34VB20G (£329.99) (93L) which also has a higher rating.

Four Freezer Shelves/baskets

Most fridges that are a similar age to the MBC55249 have between one and four freezer shelves/baskets, including the Hisense MBC55249 which has four freezer shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridges of this spec and age have between one and five vegetable drawers, including the MBC55249 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Shallow

With a depth of only 536 millimeters, the MBC55249 is one of the shallower small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the MBC55249 amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The average depth of comparable spec fridge freezers that were released one year ago is 570mm, and the depths range from 460mm to 660mm.

If you don't mind having a deeper depth then you might also want to look at the IFF5050 (£349.00) (535mm), or the BSTAT5050 (£349.99) (537mm) both from Belling or the New World IFF50FF (£420.00) (535mm).

13 Reasons Against

Very High Running Costs

The efficiency rating of this Hisense fridge freezer is A+, however the MBC55249 has an average 24 year running cost of £651 based on typical energy prices, which is in the most expensive 19% of all 205 fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec.

Only Two Fridge Shelves Baskets

Most fridges of a comparable age and type to the MBC55249 have between one and six fridge shelves baskets, including the Hisense MBC55249 which has two fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Hisense MBC55249 does not have a water filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than a year ago also do not have a water filter.

Alternative fridges which also have a water filter that you might want to consider include the Whirlpool ART 872 (£315.00).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the MBC55249, the MBC55249 does not have an air filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have an air filter to this fridge and we think the AEG SCT81800S0 (£549.99), or the Neff KG836A3 (£968.22) is also worth considering.
