Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Essentials C55CS12 does not have a water filter. Most of the other fridges that have been around for a similar time to the C55CS12 also do not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridge freezers which also have an air filter including the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 (£353.55).
