3 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This refrigerator is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the KS 173.0 has an average running cost of £215 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run refrigerators of a comparable spec and age.

Very Short

The shortest Freestanding refrigerator that is a similar age to the KS 173.0 is 520mm high and the tallest is 2,100mm. The KS 173.0 is one of the shorter refrigerators of a comparable age and spec to the KS 173.0 (only 845 millimeters) amongst refrigerators of this age.

If you don't mind having a taller height then you might want to look at the Miele K12010 S-2 (£299.99) (850mm).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for a similar time to the KS 173.0 do not have a water dispenser. The KS 173.0 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

It is worth considering other fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Hotpoint RLA36 (£157.00).

Refrigerators with a bigger net capacity that might be worth looking at include the Candy CCDS5144W (£475.19) (166L), or the Amica FC206.3 (£219.00) (186L).
