Other

Bosch released the KAD62V40GB in December 2012.


Freezer

Quite Large Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of 177 liters, the KAD62V40GB has a fairly large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other large fridge net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as this fridge freezer. The average freezer net capacity of large fridge net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to this fridge freezer is 110L.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to consider the Panasonic NR-B53V2 (£1,249) (206L and cheaper), or the Sharp SJFP813VST (£1,050) (254L and cheaper).

Has a Water Dispenser

The KAD62V40GB has a water dispenser, which is unusual. Most of the other large fridge net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to this fridge do not have a water dispenser.

There are a number of alternative fridges with a water dispenser currently available that you might want to consider including the RFG23UEBP (£1,290), or the RF23HTEDBSR (£1,199) both from Samsung and both of which have better reviews; or the Panasonic NR-B53V2 (£1,249) which is cheaper.

Has an Icemaker

The Bosch KAD62V40GB has an icemaker. Most of the other large fridge net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to this fridge also have an icemaker.

We compared all the other fridges with an icemaker to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RFG23UEBP (£1,290) which has better reviews; or the Panasonic NR-B53V2 (£1,249) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Other fridge freezers which also have an icemaker that you might want to consider include the Sharp SJF790STSL (£1,300).
