4 Reasons For

Quite Large Freezer Net Capacity

At 80 liters, the Whirlpool ART 6601 has a quite large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years. The freezer net capacitys of small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the ART 6601 range from 16L to 240L, and the average freezer net capacity is 60L.

Fridge freezers with a larger freezer net capacity that might be worth looking at include the Hotpoint FFLAA 58[plb_2962323_price] (81L), or the Indesit CAA 55[plb_2662607_price] (84L).

11 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are High

Whilst the energy efficiency rating of this fridge is A+, the ART 6601 is one of the less economic to run fridges that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the ART 6601 is £703.

The ART 6601 does not have a super Cool function. Most of the other similar spec fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the ART 6601 also do not have a super Cool function.
