6 Reasons For

Quite Large Fridge Net Capacity

The KFN 12923 SD has a fairly large fridge net capacity (230 liters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the KFN 12923 SD. Comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago have fridge net capacitys of between 130L and 340L, and the average fridge net capacity is 220L.

We compared all the other 230L net fridge capacity fridge freezers to this fridge freezer and we think the AFD631GB (£728.99), and the CFE633CW (£279.99) both from Haier or the Liebherr CPESF 3523 Comfort which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a fridge freezer with a larger fridge net capacity then you might want to look at the FAB30LP1 (231L), the FAB30LR1 (231L), or the FAB30RV1 (231L) all from Smeg which is also higher rated.

Four Freezer Number of Shelves/basketss

The KFN 12923 SD is a four freezer number of shelves/baskets fridge freezer. Most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the KFN 12923 SD have between one and four freezer number of shelves/basketss.

12 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, based on 6 user reviews the average user rating of this fridge freezer is 27%. It seems that users are not that keen on this medium total net capacity fridge freezer.

Not Robust

One Miele KFN 12923 SD reviewer mentioned that it was not reliable. Bob Chase wrote in his review of the Miele KFN 12923 SD on Amazon “Poor Miel reliability and service”.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the KFN 12923 SD, the KFN 12923 SD does not have an air filter.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have an air filter including the KG36NSB31, or the KG36EDW40 both from Siemens or the Electrolux EN3487AOJ which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years, the KFN 12923 SD does not have a super Cool function.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a super Cool function to this fridge and we think the Bosch KGN36S53, the Siemens KG36NST31, or the Gorenje NRK 6191 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the KFN 12923 SD, the KFN 12923 SD does not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a water filter and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£769.28), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KFN 12923 SD, the Miele KFN 12923 SD does not have a water dispenser.

We think you might also be interested in other fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser including the Samsung RL41WGPS, the Bosch KGD36VI30, or the Siemens KG36DVI30 which is also higher rated.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with an AntiBacteria function and we think the Samsung RB31FERND (£340.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 is also worth considering.
