4 Reasons For

Narrow

With a width of only 540 millimeters, the BDFS 242 AA is fairly narrow compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the BDFS 242 AA. Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the BDFS 242 AA the widths range from 460mm to 1,800mm.

We compared all the other 540mm wide fridges to this fridge freezer and we think the Indesit IN CB 31 AA (£199.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Essentials CIFF7015 (£279.99) (540mm), or the Amica EKGC 16166 (£255.02) (540mm).

Short

Fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years have heights of between 400mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,600mm. With a height of only 1,440 millimeter, the BDFS 242 AA is one of the shorter small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the BDFS 242 AA amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the Indesit RAA 28 (£199.00) (1,430mm and higher rated).

Has a Water Dispenser

The BDFS 242 AA has a water dispenser. Most of the other fridges of this age and type do not have a water dispenser.

There are a number of other fridges which also have a water dispenser which you might also want to look at including the KFCD55W15 (£225.00), or the KFCD55X15 (£399.99) both from Kenwood.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 37 decibels, the BDFS 242 AA has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the BDFS 242 AA. Fridges of a similar type and age to the BDFS 242 AA have noise levels of between 5dB and 47dB.

If you would consider a fridge freezer with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Indesit IN CB 31 AA (£199.00) (38dB) which is also cheaper.

11 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the BDFS 242 AA have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L, and the average net freezer capacity is 61L. With a net freezer capacity of only 37 liters, the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA has a very small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If this Hotpoint-Ariston fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Amica KGC 15426 Si (£230.65) (45L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 13 hours, the BDFS 242 AA has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age. Similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the BDFS 242 AA have storage times during power failure of between 3.5h and 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 18h.

If this fridge freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to consider the Amica KGC 15426 Si (£230.65) (21h).

Very Small Freezer Capacity

Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the BDFS 242 AA the freezer capacities range from 1.5kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 5.2kg/24h. The Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA has a fairly small freezer capacity (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other fridges of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the BDFS 242 AA, the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA does not have a water filter. Most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the BDFS 242 AA also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the BDFS 242 AA do not have an air filter. The BDFS 242 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA does not have an icemaker, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other fridges that have been around for more than two years, the BDFS 242 AA does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the BDFS 242 AA do not have an AntiBacteria function. The Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have an AntiBacteria function including the Amica EKGC 16166 (£255.02).

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the BDFS 242 AA do not have a humidifier function. The BDFS 242 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

Chart Edit

Only Three Fridge Shelves Baskets

The BDFS 242 AA is a three fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years have between two and eight fridge shelves baskets.

OK Running Costs

The efficiency rating of this Hotpoint-Ariston fridge is A, and the BDFS 242 AA is typical compared to the other 406 fridge freezers of this type and age that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the BDFS 242 AA is £586.

Chart Edit

Average Depth

The BDFS 242 AA has a pretty standard depth (550 millimeters) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 550mm deep fridges currently available including the Indesit IN CB 31 AA (£199.00) which is cheaper.

If you would consider a fridge with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the ZRB 227 WO (551mm), or the ZRB 24100 WA (£229.00) (551mm) both from Zanussi.
