Hotpoint Launches New 4-Door Fridge Freezer

Major appliance manufacturer Hotpoint has launched an American-style fridge freezer with four doors, which offers flexible storage solutions and innovative technologies that encourage long-lasting freshness of food.

The Hotpoint Day-1 Active Quattro fridge freezer (HQ9 E1L) benefits from a generous capacity of 591 litres, making room for all of your fresh and frozen food. The fully flexible interior allows you to tailor the space to suit your household’s needs and preferences.

The refrigeration compartment has six internal door balconies, all of which are adjustable and are perfect for storing items such as milk, drinks bottles and condiments. In addition, the two full-width glass shelves are adjustable to allow you to change the height, making room for taller or more awkward shaped items. Finally, the two crisper drawers provide additional storage and the optimum conditions for fresh fruit and vegetables, helping to reduce avoidable food waste in the home.

The freezer is versatile and adaptable, with plenty of space to effortlessly store all of your frozen items. The freezer had a total of six separate compartments, including four removable drawers and two shelves, which are in the perfect location for storing frequently-used frozen items. All of the four drawers, and the shelf in between, are removable, which is perfect for storing taller items or when the festive season rolls around and you need the extra space.

Two of the four freezer drawers have the benefit of Super Freeze technology, which ensures the fast freezing of a large quantity of items. This is ideal for freezing fresh fruit and vegetables, perhaps from the garden; or when you have just completed the family shop. The lower temperature freezes the food quicker than it would at the standard freezer temperature of -18C, and means each item better retains its original texture, flavour, moisture and nutritional value on defrosting.

Finished in stainless steel, and neatly completed with integrated handles, for a premium user experience, the clean and linear design of the Active Quattro fridge freezer (HQ9 E1L) has been finely crafted to suit a multitude of kitchen styles and designs.


Jennifer Taylor, Head of Brand, Hotpoint says: “At Hotpoint, we understand that a fridge freezer needs to be generously sized to make room for all of your fresh and frozen food. Every inch of the Hotpoint Day-1 Active Quattro fridge freezer (HQ9 E1L) has been thought about and the flexible interior, which can be customised to suit your preferences, means you can make the appliance work best for your household’s needs. The right cooling appliance can truly enhance your relationship with food and help to reduce avoidable food waste.”
