2 Reasons For

Quite Large Net Freezer Capacity

At 97 liters, the KGN 312 A+ WS has a quite large net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the KGN 312 A+ WS. Medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS have net freezer capacities of between 27L and 120L.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the Beko CN 136240 (£557.84) (98L).

Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS the weights range from 53kg to 180kg. With a weight of only 63 kilograms, the KGN 312 A+ WS is fairly light compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS.

12 Reasons Against

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 12 hours, the Bauknecht KGN 312 A+ WS has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the KGN 312 A+ WS. The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of this age and type is 4h and the longest is 46h.

Chart Edit

High Running Costs

This fridge has an efficiency rating of A+, however the KGN 312 A+ WS is one of the more expensive to run medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the KGN 312 A+ WS will cost £771 over 24 years to run.

Very Short Cable Length

At only 1.7 meters, the Bauknecht KGN 312 A+ WS has a fairly short cable length compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS the cable lengths range from 1.5m to 2.5m.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridges of this spec and age do not have an air filter. The KGN 312 A+ WS is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS do not have a super cool function. The KGN 312 A+ WS is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Bauknecht KGN 312 A+ WS does not have a water filter, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the KGN 312 A+ WS also do not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The KGN 312 A+ WS does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS do not have an icemaker. The KGN 312 A+ WS is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago, the KGN 312 A+ WS does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The KGN 312 A+ WS does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KGN 312 A+ WS also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The Bauknecht KGN 312 A+ WS does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not have a humidifier function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16) is also worth considering.

Very Small Freezer Capacity

The freezer capacities of medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the KGN 312 A+ WS range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 8.6kg/24h. The Bauknecht KGN 312 A+ WS has a fairly small freezer capacity (only 4.5 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Fridge freezers with a deeper depth that might be worth looking at include the Gorenje NRK 6181 (£505.00) (640mm), or the Siemens KG36NSW30 (£799.00) (640mm).
