5 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

Bosch small total net capacity fridge freezers have good reviews on average and across all fridge freezers Bosch is one of the superior brands.

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

The average net fridge capacity of comparable spec fridges that were launched more than two years ago is 180L, and the net fridge capacities range from 60L to 360L. With a net fridge capacity of 217 liters, the Bosch KIV38X20 has one of the larger net fridge capacities amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age.

Fridge freezers with a larger net fridge capacity that might also be worth considering include the Rex FI291-2T[plb_1858656_price] (218L).

Five Fridge Shelves Baskets

The KIV38X20 is a five fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIV38X20 have between two and eight fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Three Freezer Shelves/baskets

The Bosch KIV38X20 is a three freezer shelve/basket fridge freezer. Most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KIV38X20 have between 1 and 34 freezer shelves/baskets.

9 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 13 hours, the KIV38X20 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the KIV38X20. The shortest storage time during power failure of fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago is 3.5h and the longest is 46h.

If this Bosch fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the Gorenje RKI 4151[plb_1329841_price] (14h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Bosch KIV38X20 does not have a super cool function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the KIV38X20 do not have a water filter. The Bosch KIV38X20 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridges of this type and age do not have an air filter. The KIV38X20 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the KIV38X20 do not have a water dispenser. The Bosch KIV38X20 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA[plb_2983516_price], or the Kenwood KFCD55W15[plb_2981212_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative fridge freezers which also have an icemaker including the Beko CSA 24032[plb_1722311_price].

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The KIV38X20 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function including the EKGC 16166[pl_1333788_price], or the EKGC 16167[pl_1333789_price] both from Amica.
