1 Reason For

Bosch Fridges Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Bosch fridge freezers and also specifically for Bosch small total net capacity fridge freezers and found that in both cases Bosch had good ratings compared to other brands.

15 Reasons Against

Quite Small Fridge Net Capacity

The fridge net capacitys of fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIF42AF30 range from 60L to 260L, and the average fridge net capacity is 180L. With a fridge net capacity of only 154 liters, the KIF42AF30 has one of the smaller fridge net capacitys amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

If you are looking for a larger fridge net capacity then you might want to consider the CN 3115 (£649.00) (173L and cheaper), or the CNef 3115 (£699.00) (173L and cheaper) both from Liebherr.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched in the last 12 months have freezer net capacitys of between 15L and 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 62L. At only 15 liters, the KIF42AF30 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KIF42AF30.

If you are looking for a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might also want to look at the AEG S72700DSW1 (50L) which is also cheaper.

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The KIF42AF30 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures (only 13 hours) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The average storage time during power failure of recently released small total net capacity fridge freezers is 19h, and the storage time during power failures range from 10h to 33h.

If you want a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the CN 3115 (£649.00) (18h), or the CNef 3115 (£699.00) (18h) both from Liebherr which is also cheaper.

Pricey

Latest similar spec fridges range in price from £200 to £1,022. We think that this fridge looks expensive compared to other latest similar spec fridges.

Very Small Door Opening Angle

The average door opening angle of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KIF42AF30 is 91°. The Bosch KIF42AF30 has one of the smaller door opening angles (only 20 degrees) amongst small total net capacity fridge freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Bosch KIF42AF30 does not have a water filter, although it is worth noting that most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the KIF42AF30 also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The KIF42AF30 does not have an air filter, although this is within the context that most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIF42AF30 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Other fridge freezers which also have a super Cool function that you might want to consider include the Liebherr CNef 3115 (£699.00) which is also cheaper.

2 Other reasons to consider the Bosch KIF42AF30

Running Costs Are Average

This fridge freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the KIF42AF30 has an average 24 year running cost of £433 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 69 new fridge freezers.

Average Noise Level

At 38 decibels, the KIF42AF30 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIF42AF30.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other 38dB noise level fridges and we think the KIV85VF30G (£615.00), and the KIV87VS30G (£603.99) both from Bosch or the Neff KI5852F30G (£637.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
