4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

This low freezer net capacity freezer has an efficiency rating of A++, and the GB 388 is one of the cheapest to run freezers of this spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the GB 388 will cost £275 over 24 years to run.

Quite Low Energy Usage

The lowest energy usage of freezers of a similar age and type to the GB 388 is 0.32kWh/24h, the highest is 1kWh/24h, and the average energy usage is 0.47kWh/24h. With an energy usage of only 0.322 kilowatts hour per 24 hours, the Bomann GB 388's energy usage is one of the lowest amongst low freezer net capacity freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Very Low Connected Load

At only 70 Watts, the Bomann GB 388 has a fairly low connected load compared to most of the other freezers that were released around the same time as the GB 388. The lowest connected load of comparable spec freezers that came out around the same time as the GB 388 is 46W, the highest is 1,000W, and the average connected load is 110W.

3 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Gross Capacity

The freezer gross capacity of the Bomann GB 388 of only 32 liters is one of the smallest amongst low freezer net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to the GB 388. The freezer gross capacitys of freezers of a similar age and spec to the GB 388 range from 18L to 180L.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Freezing Capacity

When compared to other low freezer net capacity freezers that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed, the Bomann GB 388's freezing capacity of only 3 kilograms per 24 hours is one of the smallest. Similar spec freezers that have been around for around the same time as the GB 388 have freezing capacitys of between 2kg/24h and 30kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 10kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 12 hours, the Bomann GB 388 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst freezers of this age. Low freezer net capacity freezers that were released around the same time as the GB 388 have storage time during power failures of between 5h and 67h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

Freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth looking at include the Hotpoint RZAAV22 (£159.00) (13h) which also has a higher rating.
