5 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

This fridge has an energy efficiency rating of A+++, and based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the KCE40AR40 is £351, which is in the cheapest 7% of all 487 medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Fridges manufactured by Bosch are some of the better fridges according to average user and expert reviews.

Very Long Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of 35 hours, the KCE40AR40 has one of the longest storage time during power failures amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The average storage time during power failure of comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the KCE40AR40 is 20h, and the storage time during power failures range from 4.5h to 46h.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 38 decibels, the Bosch KCE40AR40 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years. The average noise level of fridge freezers of this type and age is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Freezing Capacity

Fridge freezers of this spec and age have freezing capacitys of between 2kg/24h and 17kg/24h. At 14 kilograms per 24 hours, the KCE40AR40 has a fairly big freezing capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

The Bosch KCE40AR40 does not have a water filter. Most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£805.23), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£765.69) is also worth considering.
