4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other refrigerators of a comparable age and type to the GKv 5790, the Liebherr GKv 5790 does not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water dispenser and we think the Samsung RR35H6610SA[plb_2962477_price], or the Beko LP 1671 DB[plb_2962443_price] is also worth considering.
