At 390 liters, the K 12820 SD ED has a quite big net capacity compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been around for around the same time as the K 12820 SD ED. Across all the refrigerators that have been available for a comparable time to the K 12820 SD ED the net capacities range from 14L to 400L.
Most of the other refrigerators of this age and type only have between two and four door balconies, however the K 12820 SD ED has five door balconies.
The cable lengths of fridges of this type and age range from 1.5m to 25m, and the average cable length is 2.7m. The K 12820 SD ED has one of the longer cable lengths (2.4 meters) amongst comparable spec refrigerators of this age.
The Miele K 12820 SD ED does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other refrigerators that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.
We think you might also be interested in other fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Samsung RR35H66107F (£739.00).
With a weight of 75.6 kilograms, the K 12820 SD ED is fairly heavy compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age. The lightest comparable spec fridge that has been around for more than two years is 11kg weight, the heaviest is 97kg, and the average weight is 50kg.
This Freestanding refrigerator has been on the market for over three years.
This Freestanding refrigerator is rated A+ for energy efficiency. The K 12820 SD ED is typical compared to the other 196 fridges that were launched more than two years ago that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the K 12820 SD ED is £351.
With a width of 600 millimeters, the K 12820 SD ED has a pretty average width compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for more than two years.
Fridges with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the KSV36AI41 (£742.08) (600mm), or the KSV36AW41 (£738.76) (600mm) both from Bosch or the Siemens KS36VAW31 (£669.00) (600mm).
With a depth of 630 millimeters, the Miele K 12820 SD ED has a pretty standard depth compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for more than two years.
We compared this fridge to all the other 630mm deep fridges and we think the Liebherr KP 3620 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would consider a fridge with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the Miele K 12421 SD1 (£629.99) (631mm and cheaper).
At 40 decibels, the K 12820 SD ED has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the K 12820 SD ED.
We compared all the other 40dB noise level fridges to this refrigerator and we think cheaper fridges such as the Liebherr K 3620 (£589.00) is also worth considering.
If you would consider a fridge with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Siemens KS29VNW30 (£507.10) (39dB and cheaper).
