Bosch is one of the better rated fridge freezer brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

After checking the price of 35 large fridge net capacity fridges that have been on the market for the last year they range in price from £448 to £4,199.

It was May 2016 when Bosch released the KGF56HI40.


Freezer

Fairly Large Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of 105 liters, the KGF56HI40 has one of the larger freezer net capacitioes amongst large fridge net capacity fridges of this age. Large fridge net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to this fridge have freezer net capacitioes of between 21L and 210L, and the average freezer net capacity is 96L.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other 105L net freezer capacity fridge freezers and we think cheaper fridges such as the Hotpoint XH9T2ZXOJZV (£1,090.24) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Sharp SJ-FS820 (£1,499) (207L).
