Performance

Quite Small Total Net Capacity

The average total net capacity of small fridge net capacity fridges that are a similar age to this fridge freezer is 220L. At only 169 liters, the KIF42AF30 has a fairly small total net capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to this fridge.

If you are looking for a larger total net capacity then you might want to consider the Grundig GKN16910DX (£549.99) (179L and cheaper).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to this fridge range from 34dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 40dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Bosch KIF42AF30 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst fridges of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 38dB noise level fridges currently available including cheaper fridges such as the Bosch KIV85VF30G (£472), or the Siemens KI86VVF30 (£679).

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Liebherr CPbs 3413 (£799) (38dB).

Freezer

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Similar spec fridges that have been available for a comparable time to this fridge freezer have freezer net capacitioes of between 15L and 210L. With a freezer net capacity of only 15 liters, the Bosch KIF42AF30 has a very small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to this fridge freezer.

If this Bosch fridge freezer freezer net capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Hotpoint Aquarius HM 7030 (£549.99) (80L) which is also cheaper.

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of fridge freezers of this type and age is 17h, and the storage time during power failures range from 10h to 32h. With a storage time during power failure of only 13 hours, the Bosch KIF42AF30 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst small fridge net capacity fridges of this age.

We compared all the other 13h storage time during power failure fridges to this fridge and we think the Neff KI7863D30 (£620.10), and the Bosch KIN86VF30G (£595) both of which are cheaper are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the Hotpoint Aquarius HM 7030 (£549.99) (16h and cheaper), or the Liebherr CN 3115 (£649) (18h and cheaper).

This is a 154 liters net fridge capacity fridge freezer.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other 154L net fridge capacity fridge freezers and we think the Siemens KI85NAD30G (£619) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
