5 Reasons For

Fairly Large Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the ART 489 is 16L, the largest is 240L, and the average freezer net capacity is 60L. With a freezer net capacity of 72 liters, the Whirlpool ART 489 has a quite large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the ART 489.

If you want a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to consider the Baumatic BRCIF5050 (78L).

With a freezing capacity of 9 kilograms per 24 hours, the ART 489 has one of the bigger freezing capacitys amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.
