6 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Fridge Reviews

Bosch is one of the better rated fridge brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Bosch also has good reviews for its small total net capacity fridge freezers.

Has an Icemaker

Unlike most of the other fridges that are a comparable age to the KGN30VL20G which do not have an icemaker, the Bosch KGN30VL20G has an icemaker.

Other fridge freezers with an icemaker currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price], the Bosch KGN34VL20G[plb_2662509_price], or the Zanussi ZBB 28440 SA[plb_2662728_price].

11 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person who reviewed it mentioned that it was not good value for money. Russellb mentioned on Amazon “A Bosch refrigerator engineer then declared it more costly to repair than to replace” and gave the product a rating of 3 stars.

Poor Design

One customer said in their reviews that it was not good looking.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than a year ago, the KGN30VL20G does not have a super Cool function.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have a super Cool function that you might also want to consider including the KI6863F30[pl_1987073_price], or the KI2323D40G[pl_2815315_price] both from Neff or the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price].

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the KGN30VL20G do not have a water filter. The KGN30VL20G is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridge freezers of this age and type do not have an air filter. The KGN30VL20G is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The KGN30VL20G does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than a year ago also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser to this fridge freezer and we think the Beko CFD 6914 AP[plb_2820613_price]; or the Hotpoint FFFL 1810[plb_2662575_price], or the LEC TS55174WTD[plb_2812814_price] are also worth considering.

Chart Edit

The KGN30VL20G does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the KGN30VL20G also do not have a humidifier function.

Chart Edit

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 42dB noise level fridges currently available including because of it's better review score, the KGN34VL20G[pl_2662509_price], or the KGN34VW20G[pl_2662511_price] both from Bosch.

5 Other reasons to consider the Bosch KGN30VL20G

The efficiency rating of this Bosch fridge is A+. The KGN30VL20G has an average 24 year running cost of £626 based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 214 small total net capacity fridge freezers that came out more than a year ago.

Average Fridge Net Capacity

The KGN30VL20G has a pretty average fridge net capacity (184 liters) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KGN30VL20G.

We compared all the other 184L net fridge capacity fridge freezers to this fridge freezer and we think because of it's better review score, the KGN34VL20G[pl_2662509_price], and the KGN34VW20G[pl_2662511_price] both from Bosch is also worth considering.

If this fridge fridge net capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the New World IFF70[plb_2814816_price] (189L and higher rated), the Beko BC 732[plb_2820410_price] (189L and higher rated), or the CDA FW872[plb_2864420_price] (190L and higher rated).
