Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The average freezer net capacity of fridge freezers that are a comparable age to this fridge is 81L, and the freezer net capacitioes range from 26L to 160L. With a freezer net capacity of only 61 liters, the De Dietrich DRC1027J has one of the smaller freezer net capacitioes amongst medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

If this fridge freezer net capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the AEG SCT81900S0 (£594.99) (64L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 15 hours, the DRC1027J has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been available for a comparable time to this fridge freezer. Across all the comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to this fridge the storage time during power failures range from 3.5h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

We compared all the other 15h storage time during power failure fridges to this fridge and we think cheaper fridge freezers such as the CR330A (£608), and the CR330AP both from Smeg are also worth considering.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the KGN34XL30G (16h and cheaper), or the KGN34XL32G (£609) (16h and cheaper) both from Bosch.

Performance

Quite Small Total Net Capacity

With a total net capacity of only 282 liters, the De Dietrich DRC1027J has one of the smaller total net capacities amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age. The smallest total net capacity of comparable spec fridges that have been around for more than two years is 200L, the largest is 360L, and the average total net capacity is 300L.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 282L total net capacity fridges currently available including the Beko CSA 31032 which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger total net capacity then you might want to look at the Liebherr ICUS 3214 (£749) (287L and cheaper), or the AEG SCT81900S0 (£594.99) (292L and cheaper).

Average Noise Level

At 40 decibels, the De Dietrich DRC1027J has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to this fridge.

We compared all the other 40dB noise level fridge freezers to this fridge and we think cheaper fridges such as the Electrolux ENN2853AOW (£579), and the Gorenje RK61810 are also worth considering.

Other fridge freezers with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Miele KFN 12823 SD-1 (40dB).

We compared this fridge to all the other 221L net fridge capacity fridges and we think the Bosch KGN36VW30 (£606.30), and the Smeg CR330A (£608) both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

Fridge freezers with a larger fridge net capacity that might be worth looking at include the NRK 6193 (£640) (222L and cheaper), or the NRC 6192 (222L and cheaper) both from Gorenje or the LG GBF539NSQWB (£579.99) (223L and cheaper).
