4 Reasons For

Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity

The average fridge net capacity of fridge freezers of this spec and age is 220L. When compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago, the fridge net capacity of the Bosch KIC38P65 of 274 liters is one of the largest.

Chart Edit

Low Running Costs

This fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the average running cost of the KIC38P65 is £492 over 24 years based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the cheapest 18% of all 487 medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years.

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

Fridges manufactured by Bosch are some of the better fridges according to average reviews from experts and owners.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The KIC38P65 has a quite quiet noise level (only 39 decibels) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the KIC38P65. The average noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the KIC38P65 is 41dB.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Bosch KGV36NW20 (£285.00) (39dB).

12 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Across all the comparable spec fridges that were released around the same time as the KIC38P65 the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L. With a freezer net capacity of only 28 liters, the KIC38P65 has one of the smallest freezer net capacitys amongst fridge freezers of this age.

If you want a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might also want to look at the ICS 3214 (£975.09) (58L), or the ICUS 3214 (£702.19) (58L) both from Liebherr.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of a comparable spec and age to the KIC38P65 is 4.5h and the longest is 46h. At only 14 hours, the KIC38P65 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the KIC38P65.

If you want a fridge freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to consider the Hisense RB403N4EW1 (£349.99) (15h), or the Gorenje RCI 4181 (£388.50) (15h) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Freezing Capacity

Across all the fridges that have been around for a similar time to the KIC38P65 the freezing capacitys range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h. The Bosch KIC38P65 has one of the smallest freezing capacitys (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) amongst similar spec fridges of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the KIC38P65 do not have an air filter. The KIC38P65 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The KIC38P65 does not have a super Cool function, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the KIC38P65 also do not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The KIC38P65 does not have a water filter. Most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIC38P65 also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£561.85), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44) is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The Bosch KIC38P65 does not feature ice crushing, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIC38P65 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the KIC38P65 do not have an AntiBacteria function. The KIC38P65 is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RB31FERND (£280.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The KIC38P65 does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not have a humidifier function.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a humidifier function to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£616.50) is also worth considering.
