Hotpoint RLA36P Freestanding Fridge - Polar White

A great little space saver. At 85cm high, this freestanding Hotpoint RLA36P can fit under kitchen worktop to free up on space. The door is reversible, so you can simply switch it round to fit your layout. It holds 149 litres of space, which is ideal for 2-3 people’s weekly food shop. The inside is coated with antibacterial protection that will reduce bacteria build up, and the auto defrost will melt away any ice that builds on the back wall – both making it an easy appliance to keep clean.

"Very smart fridge"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: small tray could do with having another position

"Purchased this fridge to replace our aging appliance. Fits into our kitchen perfectly and looks very smart. Plenty of space, although we wish the small tray on the right hand side of the door could be raised higher so that we could keep tall bottles in the door. To overcome the problem we have removed it. The salad tray is a better capacity than our old one, however, is seems a little flimsy, time will tell. On the whole, we are very pleased with our purchase."

"A good buy"

Pros: Easy to use, Quiet, looks good

Cons: salad drawer would be better in two parts.

"We had an RLA34 model before and repeated the model so we could save the spares out of the old one. One criticism is the size of the salad drawer. It would be better in two parts as we broke the one from the original fridge almost immediately lifting it out when it was full. My husband would happily replace the thermostat in the old one and get it working again but he can't find out how to get the top off to do the job? I like the divided shelf and have always found it very useful."

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.
