11 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £22.58

The price of the KIV38A51 has increased by £22.58 in the last 61 days.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years have freezer net capacitys of between 27L and 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L. When compared to other similar spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the KIV38A51 that we have checked the freezer net capacity of, the Bosch KIV38A51's freezer net capacity of only 59 liters is one of the smallest.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the CTNESF 3663[pl_2207755_price] (60L), or the CTN 3663[pl_2141643_price] (60L) both from Liebherr or the De Dietrich DRC1027J[plb_1766767_price] (61L).

Quite Small Freezer Gross Capacity

With a freezer gross capacity of only 72 liters, the KIV38A51 has a fairly small freezer gross capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIV38A51. The freezer gross capacitys of medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the KIV38A51 range from 11L to 160L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Bosch KIV38A51 does not have an air filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and type also do not have an air filter.

We think you might also be interested in other fridges which also have an air filter including the AEG S83200CMW0[plb_666107_price], or the Gorenje NRK 62 JSY2[plb_2049414_price].

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The KIV38A51 does not have a super Cool function. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the KIV38A51 also do not have a super Cool function.

It is worth considering alternative fridge freezers which also have a super Cool function including the Siemens KG39FSB30[plb_1980105_price], or the Bosch KGE36AI42[plb_2361137_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The KIV38A51 does not have a water filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago also do not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water filter and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago do not have a water dispenser. The KIV38A51 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the KGW36XL30S[pl_2362515_price], or the KGD36VI30[pl_1896349_price] both from Bosch or the LG GBF539NSQWB[plb_2562477_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIV38A51, the KIV38A51 does not have an icemaker.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have an icemaker which you might also want to look at including the GBF539NSQWB[pl_2562477_price], or the GBB539NSCPB[pl_1589231_price] both from LG which is also cheaper.
