Freezer

Average Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of 115 liters, the RL60GHESW has a fairly standard freezer net capacity compared to most of the other large fridge net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to consider the KFCD60B15 (£198) (118L), or the KFC60SS15 (£200) (118L) both from Kenwood or the Bosch KGE58BI40 (118L).

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the large fridge net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as this fridge freezer the storage time during power failures range from 4h to 44h. The RL60GHESW has one of the shorter storage time during power failures (only 12 hours) amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 12h storage time during power failure fridges currently available including because of its better review score, the LG GBB530NSCFE.

If this fridge freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the A2FE-735C (£589) (13h), or the C2FE636C (£370) (13h) both from Haier.
