The Haier HC45SG42S does not have a child lock, but the Hoover HSS5172, the Igenix IG347FF, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R do. More ...

A child lock is a modification to the fridge-freezer door, meant to make it harder for children to open.

Child locks are helpful because they reduce the chance that your child will open the fridge-freezer when you're not around and potentially have a nasty accident.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Hoover HSS5172

Larger Fridge Capacity

The Hoover HSS5172 is a 140 net fridge capacity fridge freezer. That's 13L larger than the Haier HC45SG42S (127L), 79L larger than the Igenix IG347FF (61L), 73L larger than the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 (67L) and 75L larger than the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R (65L). More ...

The net capacity of the fridge refers to the total usable space inside the fridge after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A big fridge is great for large families or houses with several adults.

44% Larger Freezer Capacity

Hoover HSS5172 is 102 net freezer capacity. That's 76L larger than the Igenix IG347FF (26L) and 77L larger than the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R (25L). More ...

The net capacity of the freezer refers to the total usable space inside the freezer after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A larger freezer lets you freeze more food that may be coming to the end of its shelf life rather than throwing it away. It's also great if you like to cook big meals and then freeze portions for use later.

Larger Total Capacity

The Hoover HSS5172 is a 242 total net capacity fridge freezer. That's 114.57L larger than the Haier HC45SG42S (127.43L), 155L larger than the Igenix IG347FF (87L), 174L larger than the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 (68L) and 152L larger than the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R (90L). More ...

'Total Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of both the fridge & freezer, measured in litres.

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

Super Cool Function

The Hoover HSS5172 has a Super Cool function, but the Haier HC45SG42S, the Igenix IG347FF, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R do not. More ...

A 'Super Cool' function is a special mode that temporarily increases the power of the fridge, quickly bringing the temperature down to very low levels.

It is helpful for quickly chilling a lot of food at once, or to re-chill food after a power failure or other problem.

Fast Freeze Function

The Hoover HSS5172 has a fast freeze function, whereas the Haier HC45SG42S, the Igenix IG347FF, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R 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.

Fresh Zone Compartment

The Hoover HSS5172 has a fresh zone compartment, and so does the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R, but the Haier HC45SG42S, the Igenix IG347FF and the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 do not. More ...

A part of a fridge which is cooler than the rest, at between 0 and 3 degrees Celsius, used for chilling meats, seafood, fruit and vegetables.

By compartmentalising the fresh fruit and veg away from the rest of the food in your fridge-freezer, this makes sure it keeps as fresh as possible for the longest time possible.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Higher

The Hoover HSS5172 has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A+", but the Igenix IG347FF has a rating of "A" and the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R has a rating of "A+".

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Hoover HSS5172

2dB Louder Noise Level

The Hoover HSS5172 has a noise level of 42 (as does the Igenix IG347FF), whereas the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R is a 40dB noise level fridge freezer (2dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the fridge-freezer, measured in decibels (dB).

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

Three Less Shelves / Baskets (Fridge)

The Hoover HSS5172 has two shelves / baskets (fridge) (as does the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R), however the Haier HC45SG42S only has five shelves / baskets (fridge) and the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 only has three shelves / baskets (fridge). More ...

We do not know the number of shelves / baskets (fridge) on the Igenix IG347FF. It is possible that it does not have any shelves / baskets (fridge).

The amount of shelves and/or baskets in the fridge.

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

Shorter Storage Time During Power Failure

The Hoover HSS5172 has a storage time during power failure of 16, but the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R is an 18h storage time during power failure fridge freezer (2h longer). More ...

The length of time during which freezer compartment 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 Temperature Alarm

The Hoover HSS5172 does not have a temperature alarm (As does the the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R), however the Haier HC45SG42S, the Igenix IG347FF and the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 do. More ...

'Temperature Alarm' denotes whether the fridge-freezer has an alarm triggered by the inside compartments losing temperature.

Alarms help warn you when something goes wrong with your appliance, and can help prevent problems or accidents.

Does Not Have a Door Open Alarm

The Hoover HSS5172 does not have a door open alarm (As does the the Russell Hobbs RHUCFF50R), whereas the Haier HC45SG42S, the Igenix IG347FF and the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 have this feature. More ...

'Door Open Alarm' denotes whether the fridge-freezer has an alarm triggered by the door being left open.

Alarms help warn you when something goes wrong with your fridge-freezer, and can help prevent problems or accidents.
