10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most latest similar spec fridges do not have a water filter. The KGF56HB40 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Liebherr ECBN 5066 (£3,800.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The KGF56HB40 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KGF56HB40 also do not have a water dispenser.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser including the Indesit LR8 S1 W AQ (£323.98).
