2 Reasons For

Narrow

At only 540 millimeters, the BCB 31 AA F is fairly narrow compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the BCB 31 AA F. The narrowest fridge freezer that has been available for more than two years is 460mm wide, the widest is 1,800mm, and the average width is 560mm.

Has a Super Cool Function

Unlike most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago which do not have a super cool function, the BCB 31 AA F has a super cool function.

11 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The BCB 31 AA F has one of the shorter storage times during power failure (only 11 hours) amongst fridge freezers of this age. Fridges of a comparable type and age to the BCB 31 AA F have storage times during power failure of between 3.5h and 46h.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the Kenwood KFC55X15[plb_2962330_price] (12h).

High Running Costs

This fridge freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency, however based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the BCB 31 AA F will cost £701 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the more expensive to run fridges of this type and age.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA F 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 two years ago also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA F does not have an air filter. Most of the other similar spec fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the BCB 31 AA F also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the BCB 31 AA F, the BCB 31 AA F does not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA[plb_2983516_price], or the Kenwood KFCD55W15[plb_2981212_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The BCB 31 AA F does not have an icemaker, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the BCB 31 AA F also do not have an icemaker.

We compared all the other fridges which also have an icemaker to this fridge and we think the Beko CSA 24032[plb_1722311_price] is also worth considering.
