10 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 11 hours, the Hotpoint-Ariston BCB 31 AA F C has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst fridges of this age. The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of a comparable age and type to the BCB 31 AA F C is 3.5h and the longest is 46h.
