2 Reasons For

Has an Icemaker

The Essentials C55CW12 has an icemaker, which is unusual. Most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the C55CW12 do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 53 kilograms, the C55CW12 is one of the lighter fridges of this age and type amongst fridge freezers of this age. The average weight of fridges of this age and type is 79kg.

11 Reasons Against

Quite Small Fridge Gross Capacity

With a fridge gross capacity of only 142 liters, the C55CW12 has a quite small fridge gross capacity compared to most of the other fridges that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago the fridge gross capacitys range from 4.2L to 450L, and the average fridge gross capacity is 240L.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Gross Capacity

The total gross capacitys of fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago range from 6.1L to 18,000L, and the average total gross capacity is 420L. The C55CW12 has a fairly small total gross capacity (only 218 liters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the C55CW12.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the C55CW12, the C55CW12 does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Essentials C55CW12 does not have a water filter, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the C55CW12 also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Samsung RSG5UUMH (£579.99) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years, the C55CW12 does not have an air filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have an air filter to this fridge and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 (£353.55) is also worth considering.

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The C55CW12 does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of a similar age and spec to the C55CW12 also do not feature ice crushing.

It is worth considering alternative fridges which also feature ice crushing including the Samsung RFG23UERS (£599.99).
