7 Reasons For for Choosing the Avanti SHP1700W

A Lot Bigger Fridge Capacity

Avanti SHP1700W is 198L capacity, but the Dometic RM2350 is only an 83L capacity fridge (115L smaller), the Galanz GL35BK is only a 99L capacity fridge (99L smaller) and the Haier HC32SA42SW and the Magic Chef MCAR320B2 are both only 90L capacity fridges (108L smaller). More ...

'Fridge Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the fridge, measured in litres.

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

Reversible Doors

The Avanti SHP1700W has a reversible doors, and so do the Haier HC32SA42SW and the Magic Chef MCAR320B2, whereas the Dometic RM2350 and the Galanz GL35BK do not. More ...

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Avanti SHP1700W

Only One Shelf / Basket
