Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 14 hours, the KGN36SM30 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to this fridge freezer. Fridges of this age and type have storage time during power failures of between 3.5h and 46h.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to consider the KG36NXL32 (16h and cheaper), or the KG36NSB40 (17h and cheaper) both from Siemens.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to this fridge have freezer net capacitioes of between 26L and 160L. The KGN36SM30 has a fairly small freezer net capacity (only 66 liters) compared to most of the other medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this fridge to all the other 66L net freezer capacity fridges and we think cheaper fridges such as the Bosch KGN36S53 (£1,142.07) is also worth considering.

If this fridge freezer net capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the FAB32RNN (£1,250.00) (75L), or the FAB32RNC (£1,099.99) (75L) both from Smeg which is also cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 285L total net capacity fridges currently available including the Bosch KGN36S53 (£1,142.07) which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a larger total net capacity then you might want to consider the ICS 3214 (287L), the CBPESF 4013 (£1,219.00) (290L), or the CBPesf 4043 (£1,154.95) (292L) all from Liebherr which is also cheaper.
