1 Reason For

Hotpoint Has Good Freezer Reviews

Hotpoint is one of the superior freezer manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Hotpoint also has good reviews for its medium freezer net capacity freezers.

4 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

The average user rating of this freezer is 57% based on 6 user reviews. It seems that users are not that keen on this Hotpoint freezer.

Defrosting Problems

One person reckoned that the product did not have a good defrost feature. Amazon Customer wrote on Amazon “I will not have another frost free freezer in my house, this one did freeze up at the back and after switching it off to defrost the problems got worse”.

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the average running cost of the FZFM171P is £673 over 24 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the most expensive to run freezers of a similar age and spec.

Very Small Freezing Capacity

The average freezing capacity of freezers of a comparable age and type to the FZFM171P is 18kg/24h, and the freezing capacitys range from 8kg/24h to 30kg/24h. The FZFM171P has one of the smaller freezing capacitys (only 11 kilograms per 24 hours) amongst medium freezer net capacity freezers of this age.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hotpoint FZFM171P

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this medium freezer net capacity freezer was released.

Average Noise Level

At 42 decibels, the FZFM171P has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other medium freezer net capacity freezers that were launched around the same time as the FZFM171P.

We compared all the other 42dB noise level freezers to this freezer and we think because of it's better review score, the Siemens GS29NVW30G[plb_2810995_price], and the Hotpoint FZFM151P[plb_2814859_price] is also worth considering.

We got this Hotpiont Freezer as we had a small chest freezer and are getting older it wasn't so easy bending. So we now have the Hotpiont FZM171G Freezer and we are delighted with it.
