3 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

Fridge freezers produced by Bosch are some of the better fridge freezers according to average reviews from experts and users.

Three Freezer Shelves/baskets

Most fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the KIV38V20GB have between one and three freezer shelves/baskets, including the Bosch KIV38V20GB which has three freezer shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest fridge that is a comparable age to the KIV38V20GB is 500mm deep, the deepest is 770mm, and the average depth is 610mm. With a depth of only 550 millimeters, the Bosch KIV38V20GB is fairly shallow compared to most of the other fridges of a similar age and spec to the KIV38V20GB.

Alternative fridges with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Hotpoint HMB 313 I (£453.00) (550mm).

9 Reasons Against

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KIV38V20GB the storage times during power failure range from 10h to 31h. The KIV38V20GB has one of the shorter storage times during power failure (only 13 hours) amongst fridge freezers of this age.

There are a number of other 13h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Indesit TFA 1.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the Hotpoint RTA 42 P (£269.99) (14h).

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the KIV38V20GB do not have an icemaker. The KIV38V20GB is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridge freezers of this spec and age do not have a water dispenser. The Bosch KIV38V20GB is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC (£379.00) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the KIV38V20GB, the KIV38V20GB does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RSG5UUMH (£1,049.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The KIV38V20GB does not have an air filter, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the KIV38V20GB also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIV38V20GB, the KIV38V20GB does not feature ice crushing.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also feature ice crushing to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RFG23UERS (£1,389.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridges of this spec and age do not have a super cool function. The KIV38V20GB 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 freezer and we think the Liebherr IKBV 3254 (£1,686.05) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The KIV38V20GB does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIV38V20GB also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The KIV38V20GB does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a humidifier function.
