10 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

At only 66 liters, the KGN36SM40 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released around the same time as the KGN36SM40. The smallest freezer net capacity of fridge freezers of this spec and age is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might also want to consider the KG39FSB30[pl_1980105_price] (68L), or the KG39FPI30[pl_1980764_price] (68L) both from Siemens.
