3 Reasons For
22% Higher Freezer Net Capacity
The Hotpoint FZFM171P has a freezer net capacity of 220L. That's 47L higher than the Siemens iQ300 (173L).

Read more Read less | Edit
No Frost System
The Hotpoint FZFM171P has a No Frost system, whereas the Siemens iQ300 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.

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.
