Energy

Very High Running Costs

Performance

Average Noise Level

At 41 decibels, the Amica EKGC 16178 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to this fridge.

There are a number of other 41dB noise level fridge freezers currently available that you might want to look at including the Beko BC 50 F, the Liebherr CUP 3221-20 Comfort, or the Indesit BIAA 134 all of which are cheaper.

Average Total Net Capacity

At 246 liters, the EKGC 16178 has a relatively average total net capacity compared to most of the other small fridge net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to this fridge.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger total net capacity then you might want to look at the Bosch KGN30VL20G (250L and cheaper), or the Amica KGC 15429 (252L and cheaper).

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

If this Amica fridge freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the HFF 31014 (12h and cheaper), or the FFFL 1810 (12h and cheaper) both from Hotpoint.
