Hotpoint RLA36P Fridge
If you don’t have much kitchen space, then the Hotpoint RLA36P is ideal. It’s a freestanding model, but at only 85cm high it will fit underneath most kitchen work tops too. It works well as either a main fridge, or as an overspill if your current one is always full. The door is reversible, so it will easily adjust to your layout.
It has 149 litres of space, which is enough food storage for up to 3 people. It’s got some really practical storage solutions. Of the 3 shelves, 2 are adjustable and 1 is made up of 2 half shelves – these are great if you need to fit taller items below. The salad drawer is quite big, so you can fit in bulky vegetables. The door storage has plenty of room for bottles and condiments, and there’s even a dairy compartment with a lid so you can keep cheese in here.
There’s an antibacterial coating around the inside of the fridge. This helps to reduce the build up of bacteria, so you get a safer environment to store your food. You will still need to wipe it down occasionally. It’s got an auto defrost feature too, so there is no need to scrape ice off the back wall as it will be melted away and evaporated into the air.
The A+ energy rating is really efficient for any fridge. It works out to around £14 a year, which is less than 4p a day to run. This is a lot cheaper than any older fridge, so you’ll make a saving on your electric bill if replacing one.
