8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Bosch has good average ratings for its small total net capacity fridge freezers as well as across its entire fridge range compared to other manufacturers.

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

The smallest net fridge capacity of comparable spec fridges that came out more than two years ago is 60L and the largest is 360L. The Bosch KIV34X20 has a fairly large net fridge capacity (203 liters) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the KIV34X20.

If this fridge net fridge capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the CHA 28021 (£308.57) (204L), or the CHA 28021 S (£393.79) (204L) both from Beko.

Fairly Large Net Freezer Capacity

10 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this fridge is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the average running cost of the KIV34X20 is £658 over 24 years based on typical energy prices, which is in the most expensive 20% of all 406 fridge freezers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the KIV34X20 do not have a water filter. The KIV34X20 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The KIV34X20 does not have an air filter. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KIV34X20 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser
