Bosch KGN30VL20G | Compare Prices & Bosch KGN30VL20G Review

4 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Bosch fridges and also specifically for Bosch small total net capacity fridge freezers and found that in both cases Bosch had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has an Icemaker

The KGN30VL20G has an icemaker, unlike most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the KGN30VL20G which do not have an icemaker.

Alternative fridge freezers with an icemaker currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price], the Bosch KGN34VL20G[plb_2662509_price], or the AEG SCT81800S0[plb_2662473_price].

Fairly Big Freezer Capacity

The average freezer capacity of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KGN30VL20G is 4.7kg/24h. The Bosch KGN30VL20G has one of the bigger freezer capacities (8 kilograms per 24 hours) amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Total Gross Capacity

Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the KGN30VL20G the total gross capacity range from 91L to 330L. With a total gross capacity of 291 liters, the KGN30VL20G has one of the larger total gross capacity amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age.

13 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person who bought it thought it was not a bargain for the price. Russellb mentioned “That's a pretty bad deal for just six years' worth of use” in their Bosch KGN30VL20G review.

One customer wrote in their reviews that it was not good value for money. Russellb wrote in their review of the Bosch KGN30VL20G “A Bosch refrigerator engineer then declared it more costly to repair than to replace” and rated this fridge freezer 3 stars.

Poor Design

One Bosch KGN30VL20G reviewer who reviewed the Bosch KGN30VL20G considered that it was not good looking.

£29.01 Price Increase

The KGN30VL20G has increased in price by £29.01 in the last 45 days.

Very Wide

When compared to other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the KGN30VL20G, the width of the KGN30VL20G of 600 millimeters is one of the widest. Small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KGN30VL20G have widths of between 450mm and 610mm.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 600mm wide fridges currently available including the KGN34VL20G[pl_2662509_price], or the KGN34VW20G[pl_2662511_price] both from Bosch or the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price] which has better reviews.

Very Deep

The depths of similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KGN30VL20G range from 460mm to 660mm. When compared to other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released one year ago that we have checked, the KGN30VL20G's depth of 650 millimeters is one of the deepest.

There are a number of alternative 650mm deep fridge freezers currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the KGN34VL20G[pl_2662509_price], or the KGN34VW20G[pl_2662511_price] both from Bosch or the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price].
