The fridge net capacitys of small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the KIV38X20 range from 60L to 360L, and the average fridge net capacity is 180L.

The KIV38X20 is a five fridge number of shelves/baskets fridge.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Bosch KIV38X20 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 13 hours) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the KIV38X20. Comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the KIV38X20 have storage time during power failures of between 3.5h and 46h.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth considering include the Indesit IN D 2412 (14h).
