This fridge is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer refrigerators with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch fridge has an energy efficiency classification of A+, and its running costs of £310 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,600+ refrigerators that we have calculated running costs for.
The KIR18V20FF has some great features:
Quieter than average noise level
Has a reversible doors
Has an anti-bacterial function

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each fridge by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the fridge is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec fridges come to market, the older fridges will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
