Reasons For

Bosch GSN54AW42 Siemens GS36VVW31
6 Reasons For
27% Higher Freezer Net Capacity
The Bosch GSN54AW42 is a 323L capacity freezer. That's 86L higher than the Siemens GS36VVW31 (237L).

This is the total usable (net) capacity of the freezer, measured in litres.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Read more Read less | Edit
Moderately Lower Noise Level
The Bosch GSN54AW42 has a noise level of 41dB, whereas the Siemens GS36VVW31 is a 42dB noise level freezer (1dB higher).

This is the noise level of the freezer, measured in decibels (dB).

Fewer dB means a quieter freezer, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.

Read more Read less | Edit
No Frost System
The Bosch GSN54AW42 has a No Frost system, but the Siemens GS36VVW31 does not have a No Frost system.

A 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the freezer, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the freezer.

A No Frost system means you don't have to waste time de-frosting the freezer, and it will keep at peak efficiency for longer.

Cheaper to Run by $48 Over Five Years
Over five years the Bosch GSN54AW42 is $48 cheaper to run than the Siemens GS36VVW31.
Read more Read less
Energy Efficiency Rating is Superior
The Bosch GSN54AW42 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+++", whereas the Siemens GS36VVW31 has a rating of "A++".
Better Brand
Bosch freezers have an average rating of 90.2%, but Siemens has an average rating of 80.6%.
1 Reason For
A Lot Larger Freezing Capacity
The Siemens GS36VVW31 has a freezing capacity of 30kg/24h, whereas the Bosch GSN54AW42 is only a 22kg/24h freezing capacity freezer (8kg/24h smaller).

The freezing power is the weight of fresh food that the freezer can freeze from room temperature down to mentioned temperature in 24 hours. It is usually measured in kilograms/24 hours.

A larger freezing capacity means that a larger amount of food can be frozen in a shorter amount of time.
