There are a number of other 42dB noise level fridges currently available which you might want to consider including because of their better review scores, the NRK 62 JSY2 (£541.50), or the RK61620 both from Gorenje or the Whirlpool WBV 33872 NFC IX.

Average Total Net Capacity

At 307 liters, the NR-BN31AW1 has a pretty typical total net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to this fridge freezer.

There are a number of other 307L total net capacity fridges currently available which you might want to consider including the Bosch KGV36VL32 (£439), or the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£538.67) which both of have better reviews.

Fridges with a larger total net capacity that might be worth considering include the Bosch KGV36VW31 (£469.99) (309L and higher rated), the Samsung RB31FERNDBC (£420) (310L and higher rated), or the AEG S83520CMW2 (£489) (312L and higher rated).

Average Storage Time During Power Failure

At 18 hours, the Panasonic NR-BN31AW1 has a relatively average storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type.

Other 18h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available which you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the Gorenje NRK 62 JSY2 (£541.50), or the AEG S83200CMW0 (£599.99).

If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the S53630CSW2 (£499) (20h and higher rated), the S53630CSX2 (£617.56) (20h and higher rated), or the S83520CMW2 (£489) (20h and higher rated) all from AEG.

Average Freezer Net Capacity

At 85 liters, the NR-BN31AW1 has a fairly average freezer net capacity compared to most of the other medium fridge net capacity fridge freezers that were released around the same time as this fridge.

We compared all the other 85L net freezer capacity fridge freezers to this fridge freezer and we think the Gorenje NRK 62 JSY2 (£541.50) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Panasonic fridge freezer net capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the LEC TF60183 (86L and higher rated), the Hotpoint FFUL 1812 (£505.99) (88L and higher rated), or the Bosch KGE36BW41G (£449.99) (88L and higher rated).
