2 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

This Bosch fridge freezer is rated A+++ for energy efficiency, and the KGN36SB40 is in the cheapest 10% of all 487 medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the KGN36SB40 is £374.

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

On average Bosch fridge freezers are rated 83 out of 100, which is in the top 31% of all fridge brands that we have assessed.

10 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of only 66 liters, the KGN36SB40 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a similar age and spec to the KGN36SB40. The smallest freezer net capacity of fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the KGN36SB40 is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The KGN36SB40 does not have an air filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the KGN36SB40 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The KGN36SB40 does not have a super Cool function. Most of the other fridges that have been around for more than two years also do not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KGN36SB40 do not have a water filter. The KGN36SB40 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price], or the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price].

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the KGN36SB40 do not have an icemaker. The KGN36SB40 is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The KGN36SB40 does not feature ice crushing, although keep in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the KGN36SB40, the Bosch KGN36SB40 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with an AntiBacteria function and we think the Samsung RB31FERND[plb_1589099_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31[plb_2360295_price].
