3 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Hotpoint small total net capacity fridge freezers have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all fridge freezers built by Hotpoint.

Narrow

The average width of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the RTAA42P is 550mm, and the widths range from 450mm to 610mm. At only 540 millimeters, the RTAA42P is fairly narrow compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the RTAA42P.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 540mm wide fridges currently available including the Hotpoint RFAA 52[plb_2662602_price] which is cheaper.

Fridge freezers with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the BC 732[pl_2820410_price] (545mm), or the CT 5381 APW[pl_2662495_price] (545mm) both from Beko which is also cheaper.

Short

The Hotpoint RTAA42P is quite short (only 1,390 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type. The average height of similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the RTAA42P is 1,600mm, and the heights range from 820mm to 2,100mm.

Fridges with a taller height that might be worth considering include the Amica FK196.4[plb_2902128_price] (1,299mm), or the Beko CT 5381 APW[plb_2662495_price] (1,380mm) which is also cheaper.

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the RTAA42P the net freezer capacities range from 4.5L to 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 63L. The Hotpoint RTAA42P has one of the smaller net freezer capacities (only 37 liters) amongst fridge freezers of this age.

If this small total net capacity fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the White Knight FF250IH[plb_3287699_price] (62L and higher rated).

Very Small Gross Freezer Capacity

The average gross freezer capacity of fridge freezers of this spec and age is 81L, and the gross freezer capacities range from 17L to 170L. The RTAA42P has one of the smaller gross freezer capacities (only 42 liters) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the RTAA42P, the RTAA42P does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The RTAA42P does not have an air filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and spec also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The RTAA42P does not have a water dispenser, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for more than a year also do not have a water dispenser.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water dispenser including the LEC TS55174WTD[plb_2812814_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the RTAA42P do not have an icemaker. The RTAA42P is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have an icemaker to this fridge freezer and we think the Indesit CAA 55[plb_2662607_price]; or the Hotpoint NRFAA 50[plb_2662599_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridges of this type and age, the Hotpoint RTAA42P does not have a super cool function.

There are a number of other fridge freezers which also have a super cool function that you might want to look at including the Hotpoint NRFAA 50[plb_2662599_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most fridges of this age and type do not feature ice crushing. The RTAA42P is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Hotpoint RTAA42P does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the RTAA42P also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The RTAA42P does not have a humidifier function, although this is within the context that most of the other fridges of this age and type also do not have a humidifier function.

Chart Edit

Only One Freezer Shelve/basket

Chart Edit

Very Small Freezer Capacity

The average freezer capacity of comparable spec fridges that came out more than a year ago is 4.7kg/24h, and the freezer capacities range from 2kg/24h to 19kg/24h. The RTAA42P has a quite small freezer capacity (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

Comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched more than a year ago have noise levels of between 32dB and 47dB, and the average noise level is 40dB. The Hotpoint RTAA42P has a fairly loud noise level (45 decibels) compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the RTAA42P.

If you would consider a fridge with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Hotpoint RFAA 52[plb_2662602_price] (44dB and cheaper), or the Indesit CAA 55[plb_2662607_price] (44dB and cheaper).
