3 Reasons For

Only Released Eight Months Ago

This fridge freezer is one of the most recent fridge freezers to be released. As such it is likely to have better features than some of the older fridge freezers.

Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity

At 195 liters, the Hotpoint BCB 70301 AA has a quite large fridge net capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the BCB 70301 AA. Similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the BCB 70301 AA have fridge net capacitys of between 60L and 260L, and the average fridge net capacity is 180L.

If this small total net capacity fridge fridge net capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the AEG S72700DSW1 (£582.35) (215L).

Very Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of similar spec fridges that were released in the last 12 months is 35dB, the loudest is 45dB, and the average noise level is 39dB. With a noise level of only 35 decibels, the BCB 70301 AA has one of the quieter noise levels amongst similar spec fridges of this age.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Zanussi ZBB24431SA (£250.00) (35dB), or the Indesit IN D 2412 (35dB).

11 Reasons Against

Hotpoint Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Average ratings across all Hotpoint fridge freezers are unexceptional, however average ratings across just Hotpoint's small total net capacity fridge freezers are good.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The BCB 70301 AA does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the BCB 70301 AA also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the BCB 70301 AA, the BCB 70301 AA does not have an air filter.

It is worth also looking at other fridges which also have an air filter including the Liebherr CNP 3758 (£1,164.86).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most latest small total net capacity fridge freezers do not have a water dispenser. The BCB 70301 AA is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The BCB 70301 AA does not have an icemaker. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for the last year also do not have an icemaker.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with an icemaker and we think the Hisense RB296F4AW1 (£249.00) is also worth considering.

2 Other reasons to consider the Hotpoint BCB 70301 AA

Average Storage Time During Power Failure

At 19 hours, the BCB 70301 AA has a fairly typical storage time during power failure compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out in the last year.

If this Hotpoint fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the AEG S72700DSW1 (£582.35) (20h), or the Liebherr ICN 3366 (£1,022.00) (20h).

If this Hotpoint fridge freezer net capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Hisense RB296F4AW1 (£249.00) (81L).
