7 Reasons For for Choosing the Zanussi ZFC41400WA

Higher Freezer Capacity

Zanussi ZFC41400WA is 400 capacity. That's 117L higher than the GE FCM11PHWW (283L), 258.5L higher than the GE FCM5SKWW (141.5L), 301L higher than the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B (99L) and 190L higher than the Zanussi ZFC321 (210L). More ...

'Freezer Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the freezer, measured in litres.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Fast Freeze Function

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has a fast freeze function, and so does the Zanussi ZFC321, whereas the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW and the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B do not. More ...

The Fast Freeze function is ideal for freezing fresh food straight from your garden or the supermarket. Lowers the temperature of the freezer to freeze any newly added fresh food quickly. This function preserves the flavour, nutritional value and texture of the food, whilst protecting already frozen food.

A fast freeze function is ideal for quickly freezing a large amount of food - it is especially good for preserving the nutrients in fresh vegetables.

21% Larger Freezing Capacity

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA is a 19 freezing capacity freezer. That's 5kg/24h larger than the Zanussi ZFC321 (14kg/24h). More ...

The freezing power is the weight of fresh food that the freezer can freeze from room temperature down to mentioned temperature in 24 hours. It is usually measured in kilograms/24 hours.

A larger freezing capacity means that a larger amount of food can be frozen in a shorter amount of time.

Larger Freezer Capacity

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has a freezer gross capacity of 400. That's 187L larger than the Zanussi ZFC321 (213L). More ...

The total capacity of the freezer, this is the sum of the capacity for food storage and the capacity of the freezer walls etc.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Defrost Function

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has a defrost function, and so does the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B, but the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW and the Zanussi ZFC321 do not. More ...

A defrost functionality works to remove any ice build up in the freezer.

Ice build up can degrade the efficiency of the freezer, and large amounts of ice may even stop the appliance from working altogether. Defrosting the freezer occasionally can help prolong the life and efficiency of your appliance.

Two More Shelves / Baskets

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has three shelves / baskets (as does the GE FCM11PHWW), however the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B only has one shelf / basket. More ...

We do not know the number of shelves / baskets on the GE FCM5SKWW or the Zanussi ZFC321. It is possible that they do not have any shelves / baskets.

The shelf/basket count refers to the amount of shelves and/or baskets in the freezer.

More shelves means more space to store and organise food in your freezer, which is helpful.

Temperature Alarm

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has a temperature alarm (as do the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B and the Zanussi ZFC321), but the GE FCM11PHWW and the GE FCM5SKWW do not have this feature. More ...

Freezers with a temperature alarm can detect when the temperature inside the freezer has risen too high. This could be because the door has been left open, or due to a power cut or due to a failure on the freezer itself. Once this is detected an audible alarm will sound so that you know to check the freezer.

A temperature alarm will prompt you to check the freezer before it loses too much temperature and food starts to defrost.

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Zanussi ZFC41400WA

3dB Higher Noise Level

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has a noise level of 45, but the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B and the Zanussi ZFC321 are both 42dB noise level freezers (3dB lower). More ...

The noise level of the freezer, is the noise generated by the freezer's compressor which runs in the background when the freezer is swithced on. The noise level is measured in decibels (dB).

Fewer dB means a quieter freezer, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.

Shorter Storage Time During Power Failure

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA is a 31 storage time during power failure freezer. That's 4h shorter than the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B (35h) and 3h longer than the Zanussi ZFC321 (28h). More ...

The length of time during which freezer can store food without mains power connection.

A longer storage time means that there is less chance of your food being defrosted and ruined by an untimely power failure.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA does not have a built-in display, whereas the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW, the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B and the Zanussi ZFC321 have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' denotes whether the freezer has a display, showing critical information such as the current temperature.

A display allows you to easily see what temperature the freezer is currently at, and whether there are any problems that need to be rectified.

Does Not Have a Door Open Alarm

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA does not have a door open alarm, but the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW, the Russell Hobbs RHCF99B and the Zanussi ZFC321 do. More ...

Freezers with a door open alarm can detect when the door has been left open for an unusually long period. Once this is detected an audible alarm will sound so that you know to close the door.

A door alarm will prompt you to close the door before the freezer loses too much temperature and food starts to defrost.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Zanussi ZFC41400WA has received a Kagoo Score of 79, but the GE FCM5SKWW scored 85.
