4 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

Bosch is one of the better rated fridge freezer manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Bosch also has good reviews for its small total net capacity fridge freezers.

Shallow

The depths of small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the KIF42AF30 range from 480mm to 690mm, and the average depth is 580mm. With a depth of only 545 millimeters, the KIF42AF30 is quite shallow compared to most of the other recently released similar spec fridge freezers.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other 545mm deep fridge freezers and we think the Siemens KI86NVF30G[plb_3230344_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a deeper depth then you might want to consider the Siemens KI77VVS30[plb_3240687_price] (542mm and cheaper).

Very Short

At only 1,221 millimeter, the KIF42AF30 is fairly short compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for the last year. The shortest small total net capacity fridge that is a similar age to the KIF42AF30 is 850mm tall and the tallest is 2,100mm.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the KI86NVF30G[pl_3230344_price] (1,772mm and cheaper), or the KI77VVS30[pl_3240687_price] (1,578mm and cheaper) both from Siemens.

Very Low Connected Load

With a connected load of only 90 Watts, the KIF42AF30 has a fairly low connected load compared to most of the other new fridge freezers. Across all the comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIF42AF30 the connected loads range from 80W to 190W.

15 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Fridge Capacity

With a net fridge capacity of only 154 liters, the Bosch KIF42AF30 has one of the smaller net fridge capacities amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. Latest small total net capacity fridge freezers have net fridge capacities of between 60L and 260L.

If this fridge net fridge capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Cbs 3425[pl_3346561_price] (184L and cheaper), or the IK 2354[pl_3813116_price] (184L and cheaper) both from Liebherr or the Bosch KIS86HD40[plb_3452593_price] (186L and cheaper).

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Fridges that were launched in the last 12 months have net freezer capacities of between 15L and 120L. The KIF42AF30 has a very small net freezer capacity (only 15 liters) compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec fridges.

If you are looking for a fridge freezer with a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the Liebherr IK 2354[plb_3813116_price] (16L and cheaper), the Candy CKBBF 172[plb_3863085_price] (50L and cheaper), or the Bosch KIS86HD40[plb_3452593_price] (74L and cheaper).

Expensive

We think this small total net capacity fridge looks expensive compared to other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for the last year. We checked 41 small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for the last year and they range in price from £85 to £1,400.

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The storage times during power failure of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for the last year range from 10h to 33h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. With a storage time during power failure of only 13 hours, the KIF42AF30 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridge freezers of this age.

There are a number of alternative 13h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available which you might want to look at including the Siemens KI86NVF30G[plb_3230344_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the IK 2354[pl_3813116_price] (15h and cheaper), or the Cbs 3425[pl_3346561_price] (29h and cheaper) both from Liebherr or the Miele KFN 29042 D[plb_3424743_price] (18h and cheaper).

Very Small Door Opening Angle

Similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the KIF42AF30 have door opening angles of between 20° and 120°, and the average door opening angle is 91°. With a door opening angle of only 20 degrees, the KIF42AF30 has one of the smaller door opening angles amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released in the last 12 months do not have a super cool function. The KIF42AF30 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a super cool function to this fridge and we think the Bosch KIS86HD40[plb_3452593_price], the Liebherr IK 2354[plb_3813116_price], or the Miele KFN 29042 D[plb_3424743_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch KIF42AF30

Running Costs Are OK

This small total net capacity fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency. The KIF42AF30 is typical compared to the other 83 small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out in the last year that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the KIF42AF30 will cost £433 over 24 years to run.

Released Eleven Months Ago

Bosch released the KIF42AF30 eleven months ago.

Average Width

With a width of 558 millimeters, the KIF42AF30 has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIF42AF30.

Other fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the KI77VVS30[pl_3240687_price] (538mm and cheaper), or the KI86NVF30G[pl_3230344_price] (541mm and cheaper) both from Siemens.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the KIF42AF30 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the KIF42AF30.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level fridge freezers to this fridge freezer and we think the Siemens KI77VVS30[plb_3240687_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Fridges with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Siemens KI86NVF30G[plb_3230344_price] (39dB) which is also cheaper.
