Across all the refrigerators of a similar age and type to the K 12820 SD ED the cable lengths range from 1.5m to 3m, and the average cable length is 2.1m. With a cable length of 2.4 meters, the Miele K 12820 SD ED has one of the longer cable lengths amongst similar spec fridges of this age.
The K 12820 SD ED has more door balconiess than most of the Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for a similar time to the K 12820 SD ED. This refrigerator is a five door balconies refrigerator compared to most of the comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago which only have between two and four door balconiess.
Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for around the same time as the K 12820 SD ED the fridge net capacitys range from 14L to 400L. The Miele K 12820 SD ED has one of the bigger fridge net capacitys (383 liters) amongst similar spec refrigerators of this age.
If this Miele fridge fridge net capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Miele K12820 SD (£629.00) (390L) which is also cheaper.
This refrigerator is rated A+ for energy efficiency, however the average running cost of the K 12820 SD ED is £348 over 24 years based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the least economic to run Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for more than two years.
Like most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that are a comparable age to the K 12820 SD ED, the K 12820 SD ED does not have a water dispenser.
It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Grundig GSN10710DW (£499.99) which is also cheaper.
The lightest Freestanding fridge that is a similar age to the K 12820 SD ED is 11kg weight and the heaviest is 97kg. With a weight of 75.3 kilograms, the Miele K 12820 SD ED is one of the heavier fridges of this spec and age amongst Freestanding refrigerators of this age.
It was over three years ago when Miele released the K 12820 SD ED.
At 40 decibels, the Miele K 12820 SD ED has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age.
If you would consider a refrigerator with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Siemens KS29VNW30 (£575.16) (39dB) which is also cheaper.
