6 Reasons For

Narrow

The ART 6601 is one of the narrower fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the ART 6601 (only 540 millimeters) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The widths of small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago range from 460mm to 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Net Freezer Capacity

Small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L, and the average net freezer capacity is 61L. At 80 liters, the ART 6601 has a quite large net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the ART 6601.

If this fridge freezer net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Hotpoint FFLAA 58 (£379.99) (81L), or the Indesit DAA 55 NFK (81L).

Very Long Cable Length

With a cable length of 2.45 meters, the ART 6601's cable length is one of the longest amongst similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years. The shortest cable length of fridge freezers of this type and age is 1.5m and the longest is 2.5m.

Chart Edit

Five Fridge Shelves Baskets

The ART 6601 is a five fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other fridges that are a similar age to the ART 6601 have between two and eight fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Shallow

With a depth of only 545 millimeters, the Whirlpool ART 6601 is one of the shallower fridges of a comparable age and type to the ART 6601 amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The average depth of fridges that are a similar age to the ART 6601 is 580mm, and the depths range from 440mm to 1,400mm.

Alternative fridge freezers with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Siemens KI86NAF30 (£1,063.69) (545mm).

11 Reasons Against

High Running Costs

The energy efficiency classification of this fridge is A+, however the ART 6601 is one of the more expensive to run fridges of this spec and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the ART 6601 will cost £703 over 24 years to run.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The ART 6601 does not have a super cool function, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the ART 6601 also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most comparable spec fridges that have been around for a similar time to the ART 6601 do not have a water filter. The ART 6601 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the ART 6601 do not have an air filter. The ART 6601 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Whirlpool ART 6601 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the ART 6601 also do not have a water dispenser.

Alternative fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser that you might also want to look at include the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA, or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00).

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The ART 6601 does not have an icemaker. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the ART 6601 also do not have an icemaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have an icemaker including the Beko CSA 24032.

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The ART 6601 does not feature ice crushing, although this is within the context that most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the ART 6601 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the ART 6601, the Whirlpool ART 6601 does 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 (£416.08) both from Amica is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The ART 6601 does not have a humidifier function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the ART 6601 also do not have a humidifier function.

Chart Edit

Quite High Energy Usage

Across all the fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the ART 6601 the energy usages range from 0.22kWh/24h to 240kWh/24h, and the average energy usage is 2kWh/24h. At 0.819 kilowatts hour per 24 hours, the Whirlpool ART 6601 has a fairly high energy usage compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the ART 6601.

Chart Edit

Quite High Electric Current

With an electric current of 16 ampere, the ART 6601 has one of the higher electric currents amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The lowest electric current of fridges of this spec and age is 0.4A and the highest is 16A.

4 Other reasons to consider the Whirlpool ART 6601
