Released Over a Year Ago

It was June 2015 when this Whirlpool fridge was released.


Energy

Very High Running Costs

Whilst the efficiency rating of this fridge is A+, the ART 872 is one of the least economic to run fridges of a similar age and type that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the ART 872 is £698.


Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The ART 872 has a quite small freezer net capacity (only 63 liters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than a year ago. The freezer net capacitioes of medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as this fridge range from 34L to 130L, and the average freezer net capacity is 88L.

Fridge freezers with a larger freezer net capacity that might be worth looking at include the Hoover HF18XK (£469) (74L and cheaper), or the Hotpoint HM 325 FF.2 (£375) (77L and cheaper).

Average Storage Time During Power Failure

At 16 hours, the ART 872 has a fairly standard storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to this fridge.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to consider the XUL85T3UWOJH (17h and cheaper), or the XUL85T1ZWOJH (£427) (17h and cheaper) both from Hotpoint.

Performance

Quite Small Total Net Capacity

With a total net capacity of only 264 liters, the ART 872 has a quite small total net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to this fridge. The smallest total net capacity of similar spec fridges that were released one year ago is 200L and the largest is 370L.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a larger total net capacity then you might want to look at the KI87VVF30 (£439) (272L and cheaper), or the KI87VVF30G (272L and cheaper) both from Siemens or the Bosch KIV87VF30 (£399.99) (272L and cheaper).

The ART 872 has a water filter, which is unusual. Most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age do not have a water filter.

Chart Hide Chart Edit

Has a Water Dispenser

The ART 872 has a water dispenser. Most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to this fridge also have a water dispenser.

It may also be worth considering one of the other fridges with a water dispenser currently available including the LG GBF59NSKZB (£449.99), the Bosch KGW36XL30G (£430), or the Grundig GKN16715DX (£399.99) all of which are cheaper.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the Whirlpool ART 872 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to this fridge.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the KI87SAF30G (£399) (36dB and cheaper), or the KG36VVW33G (£399.99) (39dB and cheaper) both from Siemens.
