4 Reasons For

Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity

The fridge net capacitys of fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the KGN36VL31 range from 130L to 340L, and the average fridge net capacity is 220L. The Bosch KGN36VL31 has one of the larger fridge net capacitys (233 liters) amongst fridges of this age.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer fridge net capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (234L).

12 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of comparable spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the KGN36VL31 is 20h. With a storage time during power failure of only 16 hours, the KGN36VL31 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age.

If this Bosch fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the KGN36XI42[pl_2240794_price] (17h), or the KGN36H90[pl_1988100_price] (17h) both from Bosch.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years do not have an air filter. The KGN36VL31 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Alternative fridges which also have a water filter that you might also want to consider include the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price], or the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price].
