Freezer

Very Long Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to this fridge the storage time during power failures range from 3.5h to 46h. With a storage time during power failure of 35 hours, the KGE36DI40 has a quite long storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as this fridge freezer.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 35h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available including the KGE36AI32 (£694.40), or the KGE36AL32 both from Bosch and both of which are cheaper.

Average Freezer Net Capacity

At 88 liters, the Bosch KGE36DI40 has a fairly standard freezer net capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to this fridge.

We compared all the other 88L net freezer capacity fridges to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36EAW43 (£759.67) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this fridge freezer net capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the KGV36VB32S (£684.58) (94L and cheaper), or the KGW36XL30S (£791.47) (94L and cheaper) both from Bosch or the Gorenje RK 60359 OR (£730.49) (92L and cheaper).
