The only ice to be expected from the Hotpoint Aquarius HBNF5517S Frost Free Fridge Freezer is of the cubed variety for drinks.

Frost free means no manual defrosting will be required, making this appliance a self-maintaining model, so an ice scraper becomes obsolete.

As long as the temperature remains consistent, the only upkeep that's required is a routine wipe down with a damp cloth or sponge.

The well-maintained airflow system has helped to earn an A+ rating for energy efficiency, with estimated annual consumption of 264 kWh.

Based on paying 15.40p a unit, that's projected electricity costs of just 42.65, to power a fridge freezer that has plenty of space on offer.

Around 12 bags of shopping can fit inside, with a total net capacity of 228 litres. The fridge is allocated 150 litres (eight bags), with 78 litres (four bags) for the freezer.

The fridge has two half-sized crispers to cover up fruit, salad and vegetables at its base, with three glass safety shelves above that can be adjusted to suit.

Three door racks include a secluded bottom balcony, where large bottles and cartons are best placed. Jars and dairy products easily fit in the pockets above.

The three transparent drawers in the freezer are of similar size, with a flapped top section and two ice cube trays included.

It can freeze up to 2kg in 24 hours and has a four-star rating, so all frozen goods can be safely held for up to a year. The operating noise level shouldn't exceed 42 decibels.

More benefits of this Hotpoint Aquarius Frost Free Fridge Freezer

  • Above the fridge door is a temperature dial, which can be changed manually.
  • A bright interior light makes for great visibility every time the fridge is opened.
  • If there's a power cut, the freezer should continue to work for up to nine hours.
  • Both cabinet doors are fully reversible, so can be adapted to open from the left.
  • Included is Hotpoint's 10-year parts warranty, along with one-year of labour.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Door reverse Having to reverse the door due to my kitchen units and as it state's in the review it is why I purchased it, however the door has to be manually pushed closed not as it states in the function list... I'm not happy at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed This fridge freezer was bought to create a matching pair for one i bought a number of years ago. Great appliance again, doing exactly what I wanted it to. The only slight niggle that I have is that it is a different white to the old one. Apparently you can choose between two, polar and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fridge freezer Pros: the top bits cold the keeps things fresh, the bottom bits colder and freezes stuff. It’s white. The delivery was quick and the chap plonked it in the garage in a cheerful manner. It’s cheap. Cons: it’s a bit loud as per other reviews. As it’s in the garage this is fine. Summary - good second fridge for garage with move to once a week shop post covid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny new fridge-freezer! Seems an excellent bit of kit, chills and freezes to temperature. Ours is in a garage but it would be a touch noisy in a kitchen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but noisy As a fridge to cool things it's great, but when it kicks in it is really noisy, too noisy really to be inside a house. Ideal for a garage fridge

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to do I bought this as an urgent replacement for one that was 'playing up'. In the current circumstances (Coronavirus) did not want to risk being without. This was the nearest I could find to fit the space available, and capacity. Although realising the freezer was smaller the than the one being replaced, I found it too small for our needs, so was faced with a dilemma - buy another small freezer, which I nearly did, or as I found later another machine that did have far better capacity within almost identical external dimensions. So this Hotpoint FF will be sold just as soon as 'freedom of movement' returns. Oh, the machine itself was also quite noisy.
