Reasons For

Hotpoint FZA36P TriStar KB-7442
3 Reasons For
41L Higher Freezer Net Capacity
Hotpoint FZA36P is 73L capacity, but the TriStar KB-7442 is only a 32L capacity freezer (41L lower).

This is the total usable (net) capacity of the freezer, measured in litres.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Read more Read less | Edit
No Frost System
The Hotpoint FZA36P has a No Frost system, however the TriStar KB-7442 does not.

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.

A No Frost system means you don't have to waste time de-frosting the freezer, and it will keep at peak efficiency for longer.

Read more Read less | Edit
Three Shelves/baskets
The Hotpoint FZA36P has three shelves/baskets, however the TriStar KB-7442 only has one shelf/basket.

This denotes the amount of shelves and/or baskets in the freezer.

More shelves means more space to store and organise food in your freezer, which is helpful.

Read more Read less | Edit
2 Reasons For
26% Lower Noise Level
The TriStar KB-7442 is a 39dB noise level freezer. That's 10dB lower than the Hotpoint FZA36P (49dB).

This is the noise level of the freezer, measured in decibels (dB).

Fewer dB means a quieter freezer, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.

Read more Read less | Edit
Cheaper to Run by £61 Over Five Years
The TriStar KB-7442 only costs £369 to run over five years however the Hotpoint FZA36P costs £430 to run (17% more).
