Hotpoint Only Has Unexceptional Fridge Reviews

Hotpoint is one of the mediocre fridge freezer brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and Hotpoint also has unexceptional ratings for its small fridge net capacity fridges.

Released Over Seven Years Ago

Hotpoint released the RTA 42 P in June 2010.


Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of fridges of a similar spec and age to this fridge is 4.5L and the largest is 240L. The Hotpoint RTA 42 P has a fairly small freezer net capacity (only 43 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as this fridge freezer.

Alternative 43L net freezer capacity fridges currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper fridge freezers such as the Indesit RA 24 (£208).

If you would prefer a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to consider the LEC T5039W (45L and cheaper).

If you are looking for a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the Haier HRFZ316AA (£289.95) (15h), the Indesit IN CB 31 AA (£307) (15h), or the Bosch KIV32X22GB (£330) (16h).

187 Liters Fridge Net Capacity

This is a 187 liters net fridge capacity fridge.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 187L net fridge capacity fridges currently available including cheaper fridges such as the Indesit RA 24 (£208).

If this Hotpoint fridge freezer fridge net capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Samsung RB29FWJND (£245) (188L) which also has a higher rating.
