6 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Bosch fridge freezers are rated 84 out of 100, which is in the top 31% of all fridge freezer brands that we have looked at.

Recent Price Drop of £142.00

In the last 51 days the KIV38A51 has dropped in price by £142.00.

Short

At only 1,775 millimeter, the KIV38A51 is fairly short compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec. Medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the CTP 3316 Comfort[pl_570317_price] (1,761mm), or the CTPesf 3316 Comfort[pl_572872_price] (1,761mm) both from Liebherr or the Gorenje RK61821[plb_401616_price] (1,800mm) which is also cheaper.

Very Narrow

The widths of medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the KIV38A51 range from 540mm to 1,800mm. The Bosch KIV38A51 is one of the narrower fridges of this type and age (only 560 millimeters) amongst fridges of this age.

If you would consider a fridge freezer with a wider width then you might want to look at the AEG S83200CMW0[plb_666107_price] (595mm) which is also cheaper.

Eight Fridge Shelves Baskets

Most similar spec fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the KIV38A51 have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets, including the KIV38A51 which has eight fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The average depth of fridges of a similar age and type to the KIV38A51 is 650mm. The Bosch KIV38A51 is quite shallow (only 550 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the KIV38A51.

If you would consider a fridge with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the CTP 3316 Comfort[pl_570317_price] (630mm), or the CTPesf 3316 Comfort[pl_572872_price] (600mm) both from Liebherr which is also cheaper.

10 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

When compared to other fridges of a similar type and age to the KIV38A51 that we have checked, the Bosch KIV38A51's net freezer capacity of only 59 liters is one of the smallest. The average net freezer capacity of fridges that have been available for around the same time as the KIV38A51 is 83L, and the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the Gorenje RKI4182[plb_1329842_price] (61L) which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The KIV38A51 does not have an air filter, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the KIV38A51 also do not have an air filter.

It is worth considering other fridges which also have an air filter including the AEG S83200CMW0[plb_666107_price].

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Bosch KIV38A51 does not have a super cool function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KIV38A51 also do not have a super cool function.

We think you might also be interested in other fridges which also have a super cool function including the Siemens KG36EAW43[plb_2358557_price], the Panasonic NR-B29SW2[plb_1716883_price], or the Amica KGC 15533[plb_2362302_price].

Quite Small Gross Freezer Capacity

The gross freezer capacities of fridges of a comparable spec and age to the KIV38A51 range from 11L to 160L, and the average gross freezer capacity is 100L. With a gross freezer capacity of only 72 liters, the KIV38A51 has a fairly small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges that have been available for a similar time to the KIV38A51.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KIV38A51, the Bosch KIV38A51 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].

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The KIV38A51 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water dispenser to this fridge freezer and we think the GBF539PVQWB[pl_2312398_price], or the GB3133[pl_2312393_price] both from LG is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other fridges which also have an icemaker including the LG GBB539NSCPB[plb_1589231_price].

The KIV38A51 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the KIV38A51 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared this fridge to all the other 40dB noise level fridges and we think cheaper fridges such as the CTP 3316 Comfort[pl_570317_price], and the CTPesf 3316 Comfort[pl_572872_price] both from Liebherr or the Gorenje RK61821[plb_401616_price] is also worth considering.
