3 Reasons For

Good Brand

We assessed average ratings for each fridge manufacturer and found that whilst Gorenje has good average reviews across all fridge freezers, Gorenje has unexceptional reviews specifically for its medium total net capacity fridges.

Five Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss

The RKI5181 is a five fridge number of shelves/baskets fridge. Most of the other fridges that have been available for around the same time as the RKI5181 have between 2 and 10 fridge number of shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The RKI5181 is one of the lighter comparable spec fridges that were launched more than two years ago (only 62 kilograms) amongst fridge freezers of this age. Medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 53kg and 180kg.

14 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The average freezer net capacity of comparable spec fridges that have been around for a similar time to the RKI5181 is 83L. At only 61 liters, the Gorenje RKI5181 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the RKI5181.

If you would prefer a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might also want to look at the Miele KFN 37432 iD[plb_2030552_price] (63L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges that have been available for around the same time as the RKI5181 is 4.5h and the longest is 46h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the Gorenje RKI5181 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of this type and age.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (16h).

Quite Small Freezer Gross Capacity

The average freezer gross capacity of fridge freezers of this age and spec is 100L, and the freezer gross capacitys range from 11L to 160L. The Gorenje RKI5181 has a fairly small freezer gross capacity (only 69 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the RKI5181, the Gorenje RKI5181 does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the RKI5181, the Gorenje RKI5181 does 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], or the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price] is also worth considering.
