3 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

Good Brand

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of fridge freezers to determine an average rating for each fridge brand. On average fridges manufactured by Bosch have good reviews from experts and owners.

Has an Air Filter

The KGN36SB40 has an air filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KGN36SB40 do not have an air filter.

10 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Across all the fridges that have been around for more than two years the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L. The KGN36SB40 has one of the smaller net freezer capacities (only 66 liters) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger net freezer capacity then you might want to look at the Siemens KD33EAI40[plb_822357_price] (67L), or the Bosch KDE33AI40[plb_953841_price] (67L).

The KGN36SB40 does not have a super cool function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the KGN36SB40 also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the KGN36SB40, the Bosch KGN36SB40 does not have a water filter.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have a water filter that you might also want to consider including the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price].

We compared this fridge to all the other 640mm deep fridges and we think the Gorenje RF60309[plb_401701_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Other fridges with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Bosch KGN36SM30[plb_334875_price] (640mm), or the Gorenje RK61821[plb_401616_price] (640mm).
