Holiday Function

The Grundig GKFI5050 has a holiday function, whereas the Hoover BHBF172UKT, the Igenix IG347FF, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the Russell Hobbs RH55TMFF143B do not have this feature. More ...

A holiday function is a very low power mode that powers the fridge down to almost off and keeps the freezer running as usual, so the device uses far less energy while you're away on holiday and not actively using it. Please be aware that food won't be kept particularly cool and fresh in the fridge, so you'll need to empty it before use.

Turning off your fridge-freezer entirely over a long period can cause unpleasant odours and bacteria to accumulate inside the appliance, and the food in your freezer would defrost and spoil. A very low-power mode keeps the insides cool enough to keep the fridge fresh, but won't use much power, saving you money.

Super Cool Function

The Grundig GKFI5050 has a Super Cool function, however the Hoover BHBF172UKT, the Igenix IG347FF, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the Russell Hobbs RH55TMFF143B do not. More ...
