8 Reasons For

Narrow

The average width of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the ART 489 is 560mm. The Whirlpool ART 489 is fairly narrow (only 540 millimeters) compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the ART 489.

Fairly Large Net Freezer Capacity

Small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L, and the average net freezer capacity is 61L.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Baumatic BRCIF5050 (£410.00) (78L).

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years, the ART 489 does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridges that came out around the same time as the ART 489 do not have a water filter. The ART 489 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the ART 489, the Whirlpool ART 489 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the ART 489 do not have a water dispenser. The Whirlpool ART 489 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 and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA, or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the ART 489, the Whirlpool ART 489 does not have an icemaker.

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

Chart Edit

The Whirlpool ART 489 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other 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.
