7 Reasons For for Choosing the LEC L5511W

Fresh Zone Compartment

The LEC L5511W has a fresh zone compartment (as does the Hisense RL170D4BC2), however the Avanti SHP1700W, the Igenix IG3711 and the Magic Chef MCAR320B2 do not have this feature. More ...

Fresh zone compartments are special sections of the fridge especially designed for fresh fruit or vegetables.

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

Bigger Fridge Capacity

LEC L5511W is 137 gross capacity. That's 88.86L bigger than the Avanti SHP1700W (48.14L). More ...

The total capacity of the fridge, this is the sum of the capacity for food storage and the capacity of the fridge walls etc.

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

Three Shelves / Baskets

The LEC L5511W has three shelves / baskets, and so do the Hisense RL170D4BC2 and the Magic Chef MCAR320B2, however the Avanti SHP1700W only has one shelf / basket. More ...

We do not know the number of shelves / baskets on the Igenix IG3711. It is possible that it does not have any shelves / baskets.

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

Reversible Doors

The doors on the appliance can be moved so they can open from the right hand side (hinged on the left) or the left hand side (hinged on the right).

Reversible doors allow a greater degree of freedom for you to set up your fridge exactly as needed.
