Hotpoint fridges tested

We’ve tested fridges to suit all kitchens and budgets. This includes an inexpensive freestanding under-counter Hotpoint that costs less than £150, as well as four other under-counter models you can buy for £150 to £200.

If you’re looking for a tall larder fridge you can see how the Beko CHILL55W (£200) and Hotpoint RLFM171P (£270) fared in our tough tests. We’ve also reviewed integrated under-counter models from AEG and Indesit, costing £356 and £280 respectively, for built-in kitchens.

You can find out whether any of these newly-tested models are worth buying by checking out our leader board of Best Buy fridges.

Best Buy fridges

Which? refrigeration expert Jess O'Leary said: 'The best fridges chill food fast to keep it fresher for longer. And they keep food evenly chilled at 0-5°C, even when your kitchen heats up while you’re cooking and cools down overnight.

'Whichever fridge you buy, make sure you’ve got enough space to fit it in your kitchen. Remember you may have to factor in extra space for air to circulate, so it’s worth double-checking measurements carefully.'
