6 Reasons For

Gorenje Has Good Fridge Freezer Reviews

Medium total net capacity fridges manufactured by Gorenje have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all fridges (not just medium total net capacity fridges) and found that Gorenje also has good reviews across its entire range.

Short

Fridges of this spec and age have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm. The RKI5181 is one of the shorter fridges of a comparable age and spec to the RKI5181 (only 1,775 millimeter) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

If you would consider a fridge freezer 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 Siemens KD33EAI40[plb_822357_price] (1,760mm).

Narrow

The widths of fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the RKI5181 range from 540mm to 1,800mm. When compared to other fridge freezers of this age and type that we have assessed, the width of the Gorenje RKI5181 of only 540 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

If you would consider a fridge with a wider width then you might want to look at the Whirlpool WTE 3113 W[plb_1326849_price] (595mm) which is also cheaper.

Five Fridge Shelves Baskets

The RKI5181 is a five fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other fridges of a comparable age and spec to the RKI5181 have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Shallow

When compared to other fridge freezers of this spec and age that we have checked, the depth of the RKI5181 of only 545 millimeters is one of the shallowest. The depths of fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the RKI5181 range from 530mm to 980mm.

Other fridges with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Liebherr CTPesf 3316 Comfort[plb_572872_price] (600mm), the Smeg FAB32P7[plb_1173006_price] (533mm), or the Gorenje RKI4182[plb_1329842_price] (545mm).

Very Light

The weights of fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the RKI5181 range from 53kg to 180kg. The RKI5181 is quite light (only 62 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the RKI5181.

16 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £34.97

In the last 51 days the RKI5181 has increased in price by £34.97.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The net freezer capacities of fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago range from 27L to 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L. At only 61 liters, the RKI5181 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Rex FI22-11[plb_2017044_price] (75L), or the Gorenje NRK 68[plb_1989350_price] (75L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. At only 15 hours, the Gorenje RKI5181 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the RKI5181.

If this fridge freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might also want to consider the GBB539PZCWS[pl_2382379_price] (16h), or the GBF539PVQWB[pl_2312398_price] (16h) both from LG or the Siemens KG36NVL31[plb_1904625_price] (16h).

Quite Small Gross Freezer Capacity

Across all the fridges that came out around the same time as the RKI5181 the gross freezer capacities range from 11L to 160L. At only 69 liters, the RKI5181 has a very small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the RKI5181, the Gorenje RKI5181 does not have an air filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with an air filter and we think the Siemens KG39NH90[plb_1266321_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The RKI5181 does not have a super cool function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not have a super cool function.

It is worth considering other fridge freezers which also have a super cool function including the Bauknecht KGN 2282 A++[plb_1799725_price], or the Whirlpool ART 9811[plb_2648964_price].

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the RKI5181, the Gorenje RKI5181 does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Gorenje RKI5181 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.

Other fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser that you might also want to consider include the LG GB3133[plb_2312393_price] which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most fridges that were launched around the same time as the RKI5181 do not have an icemaker. The RKI5181 is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with an icemaker and we think the Samsung RB31FERNDBC[plb_2518560_price], or the Beko CSA 31032[plb_1722317_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most fridges of this type and age do not have an AntiBacteria function. The Gorenje RKI5181 is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

It is worth considering other fridges which also have an AntiBacteria function including the Samsung RB31FERNC[plb_1589102_price].

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The RKI5181 does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other fridges of this age and spec also do not have a humidifier function.
