3 Reasons For

Narrow

Across all the comparable spec fridges that came out more than two years ago the widths range from 460mm to 1,800mm. With a width of only 540 millimeters, the BCB 31 AA is quite narrow compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the BCB 31 AA.

Alternative fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the AEG SKS58840S0 (£351.34) (540mm).

Three Freezer Shelves/baskets

The BCB 31 AA is a three freezer shelve/basket fridge freezer. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out more than two years ago have between 1 and 34 freezer shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

Double Door

This fridge has a Double door, which is the most frequently found door on fridges of a comparable type and age to it.

9 Reasons Against

Very Small Freezer Capacity

Comparable spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have freezer capacities of between 1.5kg/24h and 20kg/24h. The Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA has a fairly small freezer capacity (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the BCB 31 AA.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most similar spec fridges that came out more than two years ago do not have a super cool function. The BCB 31 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The BCB 31 AA does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the BCB 31 AA, the Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The BCB 31 AA does not have a water dispenser, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the BCB 31 AA also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA (£210.60), or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the BCB 31 AA do not have an icemaker. The Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Other fridges which also have an icemaker that you might want to consider include the Beko CSA 24032 (£344.96).

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The BCB 31 AA does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the BCB 31 AA also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The BCB 31 AA does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges that have been available for more than two years also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Alternative fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function that you might want to consider include the EKGC 16166 (£255.02), or the EKGC 16167 (£343.32) both from Amica.

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA does not have a humidifier function, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the BCB 31 AA also do not have a humidifier function.
