Product Overview

Massive capacity, easy to use. With double doors for the fridge up top and one large door for the freezer, this model is really unique looking. You’re getting a total capacity of 461 litres – which is fantastic for a large family. What’s really fantastic is the fact that the whole thing is frost free, so you’ll never have to spend time defrosting again. Add this to an A+ rating for energy efficiency and you’ve got a really fantastic appliance.

    "Very pleased with fridge freezer. Needed one that had a big fridge because I seem to be buying more fresh food these days than frozen. Have noticed that it makes a few clonking noises sometimes but not a problem"

    Very pleased

    Pros:Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good, spacious interior

    Cons:none

    "After much deliberation we decided this model offered the most capacity for the maximum size we could accommodate. We could not have been more pleased when it arrived - it looks perfect, offers more features than we would have been happy with and, whilst it does occasionally make some noise, this is not intrusive and certainly no more than other fridges we have had. The internal space is amazing and maximised by clever design. We have only had it now for a couple of weeks, but it seems very efficient and maintains the perfect temperature very well. If it fits in your available space and can be delivered through doorways, etc. we could not recommend this model more highly."

    Fantastic buy

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

    "We are so pleased with our fridge freezer, we originally wanted a big American one but when our kitchen was finished we realised that it wouldn't fit, so we were really pleased to find this smaller American style fridge freezer. It's a bit deeper and taller but the width is smaller! We are a family of four and our old tall fridge freezer was bursting at the seams after the weekly shop, having to return several time for extra yoghurts & milk as it wouldn't fit in, this one is still half empty! It's fantastic to be able to open the doors without things falling out at your feet. We were worried about it fitting through the door but it fitted widthways through our kitchen door which measures 75cm (with kitchen door removed) it has to be tilted as just a touch too tall, so as long as there are no corners near the door to go around then it should fit most regular doors. It looks great and is exactly what we wanted, the stainless steel doesn't mark like I thought it would and believe me I'm obsessive about things looking nice and clean. The staff, both when ordering and the delivery duo were great!!!! Don't hesitate in ordering this good size fridge freezer you won't be disappointed! I rarely right reviews but always read them, I felt that it was justified for both the appliance and the company, and it's the reviews that persuaded me to buy!"
    Looks great in our new kitchen Half empty after weeks shop!

    An excellent buy

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

    Cons:none

    "When the freezer we bought in 2002 broke down overnight, just after we had filled it up, we needed to replace it as soon as possible. Our daughter recommended that we should look at the AOL site. We soon decided that we wanted to replace it with a fridge /freezer to save space in our Kitchen. We searched the site but did not want a "side by side" fridge /freezer as the drawers in the freezer section were very small and felt we would have difficulty storing a large chicken or joint. Then we discovered the Hotpoint FFU3DX. It is excellent, ideal for us. Although we did have to move two top cupboards higher up the wall, as the fridge/freezer is taller than most, it was worth doing.There is nothing we dislike about it. It is very quiet to use. The flashing lights, and warning bleep (should we accidentally leave the fridge door open too long) when re-stocking the fridge is a very good feature.I did wonder whether I would use the chiller section, but that is always full,with frozen food thawing slowly and left over food which is kept cooler until eaten the next day. These need to be wrapped separately of course.The large freezer drawers are very easy to use, and fill.The fridge/ freezer was delivered within 24 hours for a small charge, the deliverymen arrived exactly when we were told they would and carried the item into our utility room unpacked it and put it into position for us. If you are looking for a Fridge/Freezer that is different from any we have ever seen, we recommend this one, but make sure you check it will fit in your kitchen as it is also taller and deeper than standard fridge/freezers."
