6 Reasons For

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

At 196 liters, the BLF 5121 has a fairly large net fridge capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for more than a year. Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the BLF 5121 the net fridge capacities range from 54L to 220L, and the average net fridge capacity is 170L.

Fridges with a larger net fridge capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Miele KDN 37232 iD[plb_3002990_price] (199L), or the Liebherr CUN 3033[plb_3026967_price] (199L).

Quite Long Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of 24 hours, the BLF 5121 has one of the longer storage times during power failure amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. Small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the BLF 5121 have storage times during power failure of between 9h and 32h.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth considering include the KI87VVF30[pl_3002339_price] (26h), the KI87VVS30[pl_3008712_price] (26h), or the KI77VVF30[pl_3010723_price] (26h) all from Siemens.

Very Large Net Freezer Capacity

When compared to other similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the BLF 5121 that we have assessed, the BLF 5121's net freezer capacity of 95 liters is one of the largest. The net freezer capacities of fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the BLF 5121 range from 4.5L to 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 63L.

Chart Edit

Has a Super Cool Function

The BLF 5121 has a super cool function, unlike most of the other comparable spec fridges that came out more than a year ago which do not have a super cool function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers with a super cool function to this fridge and we think because of it's better review score, the Hotpoint NRFAA 50[plb_2662599_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Long Cable Length

The cable lengths of fridge freezers of this type and age range from 1.5m to 2.5m. The BLF 5121 has a quite long cable length (2.45 meters) compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the BLF 5121 is 40dB. The BLF 5121 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 38 decibels) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

If you would consider a fridge with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Belling IFF5050[plb_2662503_price] (38dB), or the New World NW7030FF[plb_2815059_price] (38dB).
