One owner reckoned that the Miele KDN 12823 S was quiet.

One customer thought it was good value for money. Mr. L. Hartley gave the product a score of 7 stars and mentioned on Amazon last year “Great price for a class A d robust product” in their Miele KDN 12823 S review.


Design

Poor Design

One person who reviewed it said that it was not well designed. Suey S wrote “Ironically activating this warms the fridge on the right side, giving a ' hot spot' which melted my cheese! Technician called, who says it's a design fault”.

One person said in their reviews that the product was not easy to use. Last year Suey S said in their Miele KDN 12823 S review “There is no separate control of freezer”.

Robust

Released Over Seven Years Ago

It was April 2017 when this medium fridge net capacity fridge freezer was released.


Freezer

Fairly Long Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of 27 hours, the Miele KDN 12823 S has a quite long storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges that are a comparable age to this fridge. Medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have storage time during power failures of between 3.5h and 46h.

If this medium fridge net capacity fridge freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the KGE36AL42 (£755.84) (35h), or the KGE36DI40 (35h) both from Bosch or the Siemens KG36EAW43 (35h) which also has a higher rating.

Average Freezer Net Capacity

At 89 liters, the Miele KDN 12823 S has a pretty typical freezer net capacity compared to most of the other medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 89L net freezer capacity fridge freezers currently available including the Miele KFN 12823 SD-1 which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the GBF539NSQWB (£579.99) (91L), or the GBF539PVQWB (£529.99) (91L) both from LG or the Smeg FC34XPNF (£609) (90L) which is also higher rated.
