7 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The energy efficiency rating of this fridge is A+++, and the KGE49BI40 is in the cheapest 13% of all 301 fridges that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the KGE49BI40 is £412.

Bosch Fridges Have Good Reviews

On average Bosch fridges are rated 84 out of 100, which is in the top 31% of all fridge brands that we have analysed.

Very Long Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of 44 hours, the Bosch KGE49BI40's storage time during power failure is one of the longest amongst fridge freezers of this spec and age. The average storage time during power failure of large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the KGE49BI40 is 21h.

Chart Edit

Has a Super Cool Function

The KGE49BI40 has a super cool function, which is unusual. Most of the other fridges that are a similar age to the KGE49BI40 do not have a super cool function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a super cool function and we think cheaper fridge freezers such as the Bosch KGE39BI41[plb_2314192_price], and the Siemens KG39EDI40[plb_2360298_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have a super cool function including the Bosch KGE39AW42[plb_2314191_price].

Five Fridge Shelves Baskets

Most large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the KGE49BI40 have between two and nine fridge shelves baskets, including the Bosch KGE49BI40 which has five fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Freezer Capacity

At 15 kilograms per 24 hours, the KGE49BI40 has a quite big freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that came out more than two years ago. Across all the similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KGE49BI40 the freezer capacities range from 2kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 11kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KGE49BI40 the noise levels range from 34dB to 50dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. With a noise level of only 34 decibels, the KGE49BI40's noise level is one of the quietest amongst fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the KGE49BI40.

Fridge freezers with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Bosch KGE39AI40[plb_953870_price] (38dB), or the Siemens KG39EAI40[plb_934811_price] (38dB) which is also cheaper.

In the last 50 days the KGE49BI40 has increased in price by £23.01.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser
