Hugely Lower Freezer Capacity

'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.

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B is a 42 noise level freezer. That's 8dB higher than the AEG ABE88821LF (34dB), 3dB higher than the Whirlpool AFB (39dB) and 7dB higher than the Zanussi ZBF11421SA (35dB). 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.

The Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B does not have a defrost function, whereas the AEG ABE88821LF, the GE FCM5SKWW, the Whirlpool AFB and the Zanussi ZBF11421SA do. 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 Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1B does not have a door open alarm, but the AEG ABE88821LF, the GE FCM5SKWW, the Whirlpool AFB and the Zanussi ZBF11421SA have this feature. More ...

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