6 Reasons For

Narrow

The widths of fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the BDFS 242 range from 470mm to 1,900mm, and the average width is 600mm. At only 543 millimeters, the BDFS 242 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec.

Fridges with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the Bosch KIV38A51GB (£599.00) (541mm), or the Indesit IN C 325 AI (£300.99) (543mm).

Short

The shortest fridge of a similar spec and age to the BDFS 242 is 540mm tall and the tallest is 2,100mm. At only 1,446 millimeter, the BDFS 242 is quite short compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

Other fridge freezers with a taller height that you might want to look at include the SA 25030 (£324.30) (1,450mm), or the DSA 25030 S (£335.15) (1,450mm) both from Beko or the Gorenje RKI5151 (£476.48) (1,446mm).

Has an Air Filter

Unlike most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type which do not have an air filter, the BDFS 242 has an air filter.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The BDFS 242 is one of the shallower fridges that came out more than two years ago (only 550 millimeters) amongst similar spec fridges of this age. The depths of fridge freezers that are a similar age to the BDFS 242 range from 500mm to 770mm.

If you don't mind having a deeper depth then you might want to look at the Hotpoint HMB 313 I (£453.00) (550mm), or the Indesit IN C 325 AI (£300.99) (550mm).

11 Reasons Against

Very Small Gross Freezer Capacity

At only 37 liters, the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 has a fairly small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the BDFS 242. The gross freezer capacities of fridges that are a comparable age to the BDFS 242 range from 14L to 270L.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Gross Capacity

At only 217 liters, the BDFS 242 has a fairly small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that are a similar age to the BDFS 242. Fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have total gross capacity of between 6.1L and 18,000L, and the average total gross capacity is 420L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BDFS 242, the BDFS 242 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The BDFS 242 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the BDFS 242 also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC (£379.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridges that are a similar age to the BDFS 242, the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 does not have a water filter.

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

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The BDFS 242 does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the BDFS 242 also do not feature ice crushing.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with an ice crushing and we think the Samsung RFG23UERS (£1,389.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The BDFS 242 does not have a super cool function. Most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age also do not have a super cool function.

We think you might also be interested in other fridges which also have a super cool function including the Liebherr IKBV 3254 (£1,686.05).

Chart Edit

Across all the fridges of a similar age and type to the BDFS 242 the freezer capacities range from 1kg/24h to 16kg/24h.
