7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The efficiency rating of this Bomann freezer is A++, and the GB 388 is one of the most economic to run freezers of a comparable age and spec that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the GB 388 is £275.

Quite Low Energy Usage

When compared to other low net capacity freezers that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed, the Bomann GB 388's energy usage of only 0.322 kilowatts hour per 24 hours is one of the lowest. The average energy usage of freezers that have been available for a similar time to the GB 388 is 0.47kWh/24h.

Chart Edit

Very Low Connected Load

With a connected load of only 70 Watts, the Bomann GB 388 has one of the lower connected loads amongst comparable spec freezers of this age. The connected loads of low net capacity freezers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 46W to 1,000W.

Chart Edit

Short

Low net capacity freezers that have been around for more than two years have heights of between 510mm and 1,500mm, and the average height is 830mm. When compared to other freezers that were released around the same time as the GB 388, the height of the Bomann GB 388 of only 510 millimeters is one of the shortest.

If you would consider a freezer with a taller height then you might want to look at the Amica GB 15341 (£103.57) (525mm), or the Exquisit GB40-1 (£100.61) (510mm).

Shallow

The Bomann GB 388 is one of the shallowest comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the GB 388 (only 470 millimeters) amongst low net capacity freezers of this age. The depths of low net capacity freezers that have been available for around the same time as the GB 388 range from 440mm to 760mm, and the average depth is 570mm.

Alternative freezers with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Amica GB 15341 (£103.57) (445mm), or the Exquisit GB40-1 (£100.61) (470mm).

Very Light

With a weight of only 16 kilograms, the Bomann GB 388 is fairly light compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that were released around the same time as the GB 388. Low net capacity freezers that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 15kg and 47kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The Bomann GB 388 is one of the narrowest similar spec freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the GB 388 (only 439 millimeters) amongst comparable spec freezers of this age. The widths of low net capacity freezers that are a similar age to the GB 388 range from 430mm to 850mm, and the average width is 560mm.

Other freezers with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Amica GB 15341 (£103.57) (475mm), or the Exquisit GB40-1 (£100.61) (439mm).

3 Reasons Against

Quite Small Gross Capacity

The Bomann GB 388 has one of the smallest gross capacities (only 32 liters) amongst comparable spec freezers of this age. Across all the freezers of a similar age and spec to the GB 388 the gross capacities range from 18L to 180L.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Freezing Capacity

The smallest freezing capacity of freezers of a comparable age and type to the GB 388 is 2kg/24h, the largest is 30kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 9.9kg/24h. At only 3 kilograms per 24 hours, the Bomann GB 388 has a very small freezing capacity compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Bomann GB 388 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 12 hours) compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the GB 388. Low net capacity freezers that were released more than two years ago have storage times during power failure of between 5h and 67h.

If this freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might also want to look at the Hotpoint RZAAV22 (£143.00) (13h) which also has a higher rating.
