3 Reasons For

Hotpoint Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

On average Hotpoint small total net capacity fridge freezers have good reviews as do all fridge freezers produced by Hotpoint.

Narrow

The Hotpoint RTAA42S is quite narrow (only 540 millimeters) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than a year. The average width of comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the RTAA42S is 550mm.

Fridges with a wider width that might be worth considering include the Belling BSTAT5050[plb_2872485_price] (540mm), or the New World IFF50[plb_2814834_price] (540mm).

Short

Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the RTAA42S the heights range from 820mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,600mm. The RTAA42S is one of the shorter small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the RTAA42S (only 1,390 millimeter) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

Alternative fridge freezers with a taller height that you might want to look at include the Beko CT 5381 APW[plb_2662495_price] (1,380mm), or the Hotpoint RTAA42P[plb_3148026_price] (1,390mm).

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 37 liters, the RTAA42S has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the RTAA42S. The net freezer capacities of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the RTAA42S range from 4.5L to 120L.

If this fridge freezer net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the SL208 SG DD[pl_3366886_price] (40L), the SL208LG DD[pl_3704356_price] (40L), or the SL208LB DD[pl_3704353_price] (40L) all from Schaub Lorenz.

Very Small Gross Freezer Capacity

With a gross freezer capacity of only 42 liters, the RTAA42S has a fairly small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than a year. Small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the RTAA42S have gross freezer capacities of between 17L and 170L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The RTAA42S does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the RTAA42S also do not have a water filter.

Other fridges which also have a water filter that you might want to consider include the Whirlpool ART 872[plb_2889877_price].

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridges of this age and spec do not have an air filter. The Hotpoint RTAA42S is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with an air filter and we think the AEG SCT81800S0[plb_2662473_price], or the Neff KG836A3[plb_3080493_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The RTAA42S does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridges that have been available for around the same time as the RTAA42S also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the LEC TS55174WTD[plb_2812814_price], or the Whirlpool ART 872[plb_2889877_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the RTAA42S do not have an icemaker. The RTAA42S 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 Hotpoint NRFAA 50[plb_2662599_price] is also worth considering.
