10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1

Lower Freezer Capacity

Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 is only 31L capacity. That's 252L lower than the GE FCM11PHWW (283L), 110.5L lower than the GE FCM5SKWW (141.5L), 54L lower than the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 (85L) and 126L lower than the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142 (157L). 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.

50% Shorter Storage Time During Power Failure

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 is a 12h storage time during power failure freezer. That's 12h shorter than the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142 (24h). 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 Defrost Function

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 does not have a defrost function, whereas the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW, the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 and the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142 have this feature. 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 Less Shelves / Baskets

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 has one shelf / basket (as does the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142), however the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 only has three shelves / baskets. More ...

We do not know the number of shelves / baskets on the GE FCM5SKWW. It is possible that it does 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.

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 does not have a built-in display (As does the the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142), whereas the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW and the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 have this feature. More ...

Does Not Have a Door Open Alarm

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 does not have a door open alarm (As does the the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142), but the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW and the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 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.

Does Not Have a Temperature Alarm

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 does not have a temperature alarm (As does the the Russell Hobbs RH55FZ142), whereas the GE FCM11PHWW, the GE FCM5SKWW and the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 do. 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.
