Product Overview

The Multi Door design provides loads of room. This American fridge freezer from Hotpoint is perfect for families with a big appetite. At just 70cm wide, the stylish Multi Door design is more compact than standard models. So you get plenty of storage even if you’re short on space. The whole thing is frost free, so defrosting is a thing of the past. Air-Tech Evolution will also keep your food fresher for longer.

Capacity

Space isn’t an issue inside this Multi Door appliance as there’s a massive 316 litres of fridge space and two humidity controlled storage boxes. Inside the freezer below, you have 3 deep drawers. This gives you more room to store food such as a leg of lamb or a large quiche. To put this into perspective, this equates to just over 2 full shopping trolleys of food. 

Capacity

Frost free

This American fridge freezer prevents the build-up of frost and ice as it’s completely frost free. Your packs of sausages will be easier to separate and packets will be free from frost. And, it helps the appliance to maintain its A+ energy rating. 

Frost free

Fresh food for longer

Enjoy fresh, long-lasting food thanks to the appliance’s Air-Tech Evolution technology. This function keeps your strawberries, blueberries and tubs of yoghurt fresher for longer, so you can whip up a range of smoothies and store in the fridge. It adjusts the temperature across the fridge, according to its contents. And, the freezer has a Super Fast Freeze function; ideal if you’ve just done the weekly shop and want to chill your food quickly.

Fresh food for longer

Hassle free installation

We aim to make the delivery of American fridge freezers as flexible as possible. For £19.99 we’ll deliver the appliance, install it for you and take away any leftover packaging for you. We even deliver for free at weekends too.

    Fab for big families

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

    Cons:takes a while to get used to door system

    "This fridge Fridge Freezer is Huge perfect for larger families. The width isn't as large as most American fridge Freezers although the Depth doesn't let it down. There is so much storage in the fridge lots of compartments. The freezer drawers are HUGE perfect for stocking up. The doors have to be shut a certain way, which does take getting used to. If they are not shut properly there is an alarm which sounds this is quiet loud. One thing to bear in mind is if you are short like myself the top shelf isn't accessible without a stool, although great place to put things out of reach of children. Overall this is a fab Fridge Freezer and we love it."

    COOL N CHILLED ! JUST GREAT

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

    Cons:none, needs bottle rack as standard

    "the space in the fridge and freezer is amazing....spent months looking at ice and water dispenser style fridge freezers,only to realise these products are huge in size but don't have the internal capacity of my new hotpoint.I am of the opinion that their is less chance of things going wrong with this type of fridge freezer.we fill our own water jug daily as we have always done and have plenty of room for bags of ice in our freezer....we opted for maximum storage of fresh and frozen food,so we can fit a full weekly shop plus all our extra cans,bottles etc The drawers in the fridge are huge in size,the bottom drawer stores all your raw meats and/or ready meals......the two drawers above fit as much fruit and veg as you need in a week,and still 3 more shelves to fill !!! the one thing missing is a wine rack,we are going to order one asap. And I would point out this is taller than standard American fridge freezers...so may be difficult to reach back of top shelf if you are tiny. ppps this has more freezer space than the ffu4 model and less expensive. will take a few days getting used to opening 2 doors ....but u can just open the right hand door when grabbing the milk,juice or water"

    Looks good and you can fit so much inside

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, looks good

    Cons:Noisy

    "I spent months researching the largest fridge freezer I could've without going to an American one. This model tick all the boxes I could just do with a wine rack axed it would be perfect. We are a family of four and even after I have done my weekly shop there is till plenty of room inside the fridge. Everything is always cold and the super cold feature is good for cooling items quickly. The freezer is much larger than I expected and holds more than my old 50/50 split fridge freezer. It is quite noisy but only when cooling and you quickly get used to it."

    Fantastic and Spacious!

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, great space, great temperature control

    Cons:can be little noisy at times

    "The Hotpoint Trio American Fridge Freezer is fantastic, especially for a big family as it has plenty of space and compartments to fit all the family requirements. It is taller and thinner in comparison to a normal American fridge freezer which makes it a great space saver if your kitchen isn't very big like mine. With a few quirky features it makes cooling and freezing easy and practical without complicated features to confuse you. All the features it does have are useful and easy to understand and get on with. It isn't there to be fancy, it is there to do a great job of looking after all your food which it does. No gimmicks needed. The only problem I found with it was that it was noisy on occasion, it will just randomly make a loud noise for a short period of time and then go quiet again. However, it isn't too much of a problem as it doesn't happen constantly. I would definitely recommend this fridge freezer to anyone."

    Fabulous

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

    Cons:none

    "We just love this fridge freezer. Bought it in black and it looks brilliant in our kitchen. An American fridge freezer wouldn't have fitted in so this was the next best thing. What we really love is that the fridge is at the top and with double doors, really smart!"
