34% Shorter Storage Time During Power Failure

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B is a 12 storage time during power failure freezer. That's 3h shorter than the LEC U5511W (15h), 4h shorter than the Whirlpool AFB (16h) and 6h shorter than the Zanussi ZFX31401WA (18h). 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.

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B does not have a defrost function, however the LEC U5511W, the Magic Chef MCUF3W2, the Whirlpool AFB and the Zanussi ZFX31401WA 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.

Four Less Shelves / Baskets

The number of shelves / baskets on the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B is one (as does the Zanussi ZFX31401WA), but the Magic Chef MCUF3W2 only has three shelves / baskets and the Whirlpool AFB only has five shelves / baskets. More ...

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 RHTTFZ1B does not have a door open alarm (As does the the LEC U5511W), whereas the Magic Chef MCUF3W2, the Whirlpool AFB and the Zanussi ZFX31401WA 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 RHTTFZ1B does not have a temperature alarm (As does the the LEC U5511W), however the Magic Chef MCUF3W2, the Whirlpool AFB and the Zanussi ZFX31401WA 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.

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.

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

Fast Freeze Function

The Whirlpool AFB has a fast freeze function, however the LEC U5511W, the Magic Chef MCUF3W2, the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B and the Zanussi ZFX31401WA do not have this feature. 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.

No Frost System

The Whirlpool AFB has a no frost system, but the LEC U5511W, the Magic Chef MCUF3W2, the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B and the Zanussi ZFX31401WA do not. More ...

A 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the freezer, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the freezer.

A No Frost system means you don't have to waste time de-frosting the freezer, and it will keep at peak efficiency for longer.

6L Larger Freezer Capacity

Whirlpool AFB is 91 gross capacity, but the LEC U5511W is only an 85L gross capacity freezer (6L smaller). More ...

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.

User Reviews Are Better
