6 Reasons For

Fairly Large Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of 84 liters, the KG38QAL30 has a fairly large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age. The average freezer net capacity of comparable spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the KG38QAL30 is 60L.

If you are looking for a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to consider the HRF 3114[pl_2962313_price] (90L), or the HLF 3114[pl_2962317_price] (90L) both from Hotpoint.

Very Big Freezing Capacity
