With a net capacity of 390 liters, the K 12820 SD EDT has one of the bigger net capacities amongst fridges of this age. The net capacities of fridges of this spec and age range from 14L to 400L.
If you want a fridge with a bigger net capacity then you might also want to consider the Zanussi ZRA40100WA (£269.00) (395L) which also has a higher rating.
The average energy usage of Freestanding refrigerators that came out more than two years ago is 0.5kWh/24h. When compared to other Freestanding refrigerators that are a comparable age to the K 12820 SD EDT that we have checked the energy usage of, the K 12820 SD EDT's energy usage of only 0.11 kilowatts hour per 24 hours is one of the lowest.
The Miele K 12820 SD EDT is a six shelves/baskets fridge.
Whilst the efficiency rating of this Miele fridge is A+, based on typical energy prices we estimate that the K 12820 SD EDT will cost £365 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the least economic to run refrigerators of a similar spec and age.
Like most of the other comparable spec refrigerators that have been around for more than two years, the Miele K 12820 SD EDT does not have a water dispenser.
The Miele K 12820 SD EDT has one of the higher currents (10 ampere) amongst Freestanding refrigerators of this age. The average current of refrigerators of this type and age is 7.1A, and the currents range from 0.32A to 13A.
It was over three years ago when Miele released the K 12820 SD EDT.
At 1,850 millimeter, the K 12820 SD EDT has a relatively average height compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the K 12820 SD EDT.
Refrigerators with a taller height that might be worth looking at include the Miele K14820 SD (£1,099.99) (1,850mm).
At 630 millimeters, the K 12820 SD EDT has a pretty typical depth compared to most of the other refrigerators that were launched around the same time as the K 12820 SD EDT.
Refrigerators with a deeper depth that might be worth looking at include the KB 3660 (630mm), or the KBES 3660 (£1,109.00) (630mm) both from Liebherr.
With a noise level of 39 decibels, the Miele K 12820 SD EDT has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been around for more than two years.
If you would consider a refrigerator with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Gorenje RVC6169W (£317.74) (39dB).
