Released Over Four Years Ago

Essentials released the CIFF5012 in December 2012.


Running Costs Are Very High

Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the CIFF5012 will cost £651 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the least economic to run fridge freezers of this age and type.


Quite Large Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of comparable spec fridge freezers that came out more than two years ago is 4.5L, the largest is 240L, and the average freezer net capacity is 68L. With a freezer net capacity of 103 liters, the CIFF5012 has one of the larger freezer net capacitioes amongst small fridge net capacity fridges of this age.

Fridges with a larger freezer net capacity that might be worth looking at include the Hoover HSC 574 W (£148) (110L and cheaper).

Has an Icemaker

The Essentials CIFF5012 has an icemaker, as do most of the other fridges of a similar age and spec to this fridge.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with an icemaker and we think the Essentials C50BS14 (£159.99), and the Beko CXF 5104 W (£149.99) both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of other fridges which also have an icemaker which you might want to consider including the Daewoo DFF470S (£179).
