This fridge is rated A+++ for energy efficiency, and the average running cost of the KCE40AR40 is £351 over 24 years based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the most economic to run fridges of a similar age and type.

Bosch Has Good Fridge Freezer Reviews

Very Long Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the KCE40AR40 the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h. With a storage time during power failure of 35 hours, the KCE40AR40 has a very long storage time during power failure compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
