12 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 16 hours, the KGN36VL31 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the KGN36VL31. Fridges that are a comparable age to the KGN36VL31 have storage times during power failure of between 4h and 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the KGN36XI42[pl_2240794_price] (17h), or the KGN36SQ31[pl_2063268_price] (17h) both from Bosch.
