5 Reasons For

Quite Large Net Freezer Capacity

At 72 liters, the ART 480 has a fairly large net freezer capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years. Small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the ART 480 have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger net freezer capacity then you might want to look at the Electrolux ENN2801EOW (£525.00) (75L), or the AEG SCS71801F1 (£560.00) (75L).

Five Fridge Shelves Baskets

Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the ART 480 have between two and eight fridge shelves baskets, including the ART 480 which has five fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Freezer Capacity

Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the ART 480 the freezer capacities range from 1.5kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 5.2kg/24h. At 9 kilograms per 24 hours, the ART 480 has a quite big freezer capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the ART 480.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The ART 480 is fairly shallow (only 545 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the ART 480. Across all the fridge freezers of this age and type the depths range from 440mm to 1,400mm.

Alternative fridges with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Smeg CR325P (£629.99) (545mm), the Neff KG711 (£774.87) (545mm), or the Siemens KI28NP60 (£1,591.57) (545mm).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Whirlpool ART 480 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 37 decibels) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The quietest noise level of small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the ART 480 is 5dB, the loudest is 47dB, and the average noise level is 39dB.

Fridge freezers with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Siemens KG38QAL30 (£1,214.63) (37dB), or the AEG SKZ81240F0 (£717.70) (37dB).

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the ART 480 do not have a super cool function. The Whirlpool ART 480 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridges of this age and spec, the ART 480 does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the ART 480, the Whirlpool ART 480 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most similar spec fridges that came out more than two years ago do not have a water dispenser. The ART 480 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water dispenser to this fridge freezer and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA (£210.60), or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The ART 480 does not have an icemaker. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ART 480 also do not have an icemaker.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have an icemaker including the Beko CSA 24032 (£344.96).

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the ART 480, the ART 480 does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Whirlpool ART 480 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function to this fridge freezer and we think the EKGC 16166 (£255.02), or the EKGC 16167 (£343.32) both from Amica is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
