7 Reasons For

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

When compared to other fridges of a comparable age and type to the KIC38P65 that we have checked the net fridge capacity of, the KIC38P65's net fridge capacity of 274 liters is one of the largest. Comparable spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have net fridge capacities of between 130L and 340L, and the average net fridge capacity is 220L.

Chart Edit

Low Running Costs

This medium total net capacity fridge freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A++, and the KIC38P65 is in the cheapest 18% of all 482 medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the KIC38P65 is £492.

Good Brand

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of fridge freezers to determine an average rating for each fridge freezer manufacturer. On average fridge freezers manufactured by Bosch have good ratings from experts and owners.

Short

Fridges of this type and age have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm. The KIC38P65 is one of the shorter similar spec fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the KIC38P65 (only 1,772 millimeter) amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age.

Fridge freezers with a taller height that might be worth considering include the Smeg FAB30LO1[plb_1942089_price] (1,688mm and cheaper), or the Liebherr ICP 3026[plb_414340_price] (1,769mm and cheaper).

Very Narrow

Across all the fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KIC38P65 the widths range from 540mm to 1,800mm. With a width of only 550 millimeters, the KIC38P65 is one of the narrower medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the KIC38P65 amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to look at the CBNPES 3756[pl_151309_price] (600mm), the CBNESF 3733[pl_149054_price] (600mm), or the ICP 3026[pl_414340_price] (557mm) all from Liebherr which is also cheaper.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The KIC38P65 has a quite quiet noise level (only 39 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIC38P65. The quietest noise level of fridges of this age and spec is 34dB, the loudest is 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB.

We compared this fridge to all the other 39dB noise level fridge freezers and we think cheaper fridges such as the Liebherr CBNESF 3733[plb_149054_price] is also worth considering.

Other fridge freezers with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Liebherr ICP 3026[plb_414340_price] (38dB and cheaper).

Shallow

With a depth of only 545 millimeters, the KIC38P65's depth is one of the shallowest amongst medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the KIC38P65. The average depth of fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the KIC38P65 is 650mm, and the depths range from 530mm to 980mm.

Fridges with a deeper depth that might be worth considering include the CBNPES 3756[pl_151309_price] (630mm), or the ICP 3026[pl_414340_price] (550mm) both from Liebherr which is also cheaper.

13 Reasons Against

Expensive

After checking the price of 207 fridge freezers of this spec and age they range in price from £239 to £15,000. We think that this Bosch fridge freezer looks expensive compared to other fridge freezers of this spec and age.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The smallest net freezer capacity of fridge freezers of this type and age is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L. When compared to other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIC38P65 that we have checked the net freezer capacity of, the Bosch KIC38P65's net freezer capacity of only 28 liters is one of the smallest.

If you are looking for a larger net freezer capacity then you might want to look at the KGF39SM30[pl_2063269_price] (68L), or the KCE40AW40[pl_2593304_price] (88L) both from Bosch or the Siemens KG36NSW31[plb_2601926_price] (66L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 14 hours, the Bosch KIC38P65 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of this type and age. The storage times during power failure of fridges that have been available for a similar time to the KIC38P65 range from 4h to 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 KGF39SM30[pl_2063269_price] (24h and cheaper), or the KCE40AW40[pl_2593304_price] (35h and cheaper) both from Bosch or the Siemens KG36NSW31[plb_2601926_price] (17h and cheaper).
