Reasons For

4 Reasons For
28% Higher Freezer Net Capacity
Hotpoint FZA36P is 73L capacity. That's 20L higher than the Smeg VR105AP1 (53L).

Read more Read less | Edit
No Frost System
The Hotpoint FZA36P has a No Frost system, however the Smeg VR105AP1 does not have a No Frost system.

A 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the freezer, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the freezer.
