great fridge freezer, really spacious, quiet and the ice party function which allows you to chill drinks quickly in the freezer is really handy. One quibble I have is that the location of the light which is on the back wall of the fridge aint great - you only need to put one or two items in front of it and all the light's blocked out. Would've been much better situated above. Despite this, very happy with my purchase.
The Hotpoint FF187M was not our first choice for our replacement fridge freezer after our Beko freezer died. Unfortunately, as seems to be the way of things, the Daewoo model that I had my eyes on was available...nowhere.
After hearing several non complimentary things about modern Hotpoint I was a bit unsure as to my choice however now the Fridge Freezer is in place I stand by my decision.
The unit i chose was in Polar White however it is not a cheap finish and looks almost powder coated with an almost satin texture. The inset door display was also a very unexpected bonus noted in the sales literature but not clearly promoted. It is very space age and allows control of both compartments separately.
The unit is extremely quiet with a slight rush of air when the Frost Free unit kicks in and as regards to Frost Free, it does exactly what it says on the tin.
Internally the design is excellent with a very stylish vertical light and all glass shelving. There is also a wine rack, however this does impact on available space and we have removed it.
You can set the units to cool when shopping is added and there is an addition "Ice Party" function intended to time wine that you rapidly cool in the Freezer section.
The unit alarms when the door is left open and as an added space saver ice cube trays are fitted to the tray units.
A word of warning however, the door can only be rehung by Hotpoint engineers, make sure that your space is suitable for a right hinged door or budget for a man to rehang it.
