    Miele stands for Marvelous

    5/5
    Miele KFN29162Dws [tall] Fridge Freezer First off. The size... it is tall, very tall so if like us you buy one and have it delivered (to your door only or just inside) be prepared to have to man-handle it from your front door all the way to the kitchen. Not a problem for some but if you need to go through a doorway or two this fridge is taller than the average door frame (height) and so needs tilting over to get through! Anyway that small point aside, the actual fridge is amazing. On first unpacking you notice just how much higher the quality is over the likes of lesser brands such as Samsung, Bosch, Hotpoint etc .... It's well packed with protection coverings everywhere and a whole stack of User Manuals in whatever language you like as well as several useful accessories (Ice Tray, 2 Egg holders and even a metal bottle rack... nice). Once in place and switched on, it takes a few hours to settle in and for the digital display to start showing a correct temperature for either the Fridge or Freezer section .... the Fridge was quickest though and the indicated temp was verified by a stand-alone Temperature reader as being spot on. And within 8-10 hours the freezer was there too. Sweet. Next, Use ... the inside of the Fridge is ginormous, so much so that 3 weeks on we've still to fill it fully something we managed easily with our previous 5 year Hotpoint one that was all wall (extra thick insulation that failed miserably in keeping the inside cold!) with a plastic back and very noisy motor. Plus the Bangs and Cracks as it defrosted/re-froze started to drive us mad. On which point the Miele is so quiet. Yes it does make a little noise. But little is the main word. You get the odd wheezing sound as the pump (I guess) circulates the refrigerant but you don't get the loud motor noise or the noise of the insulation creaking and banging as the unit defrosts. One final point, aside from the cavernous size of the main fridge which is great...it also nice to have a fridge section that actually gets Cold. We love ... almost ice cold drinks whenever we like now. Perfect. On to the Freezer side. You may feel a little disappointed as there are only three drawers (our old Hotpoint dinosaur one had four!) .... but these Miele ones are larger, more useful and don't have any unnecessary fixings/mouldings that reduce the usefulness of them. Yes the bottom one is smaller as the motor etc is located just behind this one ... but it's still a very useful size, bigger than our last one. Result. So all in all a great Fridge/Freezer. Yes not the cheapest (or the dearest) but it is true you get what you pay for and this one is defiantly worth the extra outlay. As a final note. I have it plugged into a separate energy monitor and so far (as an average) it's using less than a unit of electricity a day [compared to our last inefficient one running at closer to two] ... OK, just checked it and taking an average it's using about 0.65 kWh a day. Happy. Happy. Happy

    Annoying interior design.!

    3/5
    I have always championed Meile, owning a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble drier. I bought this particular fridge freezer because my daughter has had one for three years and I liked everything about it. However Meile have made alterations to the design. The choice of shelf positions is now very limited. I really dislike the large drawer at the bottom. Previously there were two which slotted into guides at the side. This drawer scrapes along the bottom of the fridge compartment. It is flimsy and lightweight plastic. Because it is large it gets filled with heavy vegetable items etc. As you pull it forward it bends and buckles. I expect it will crack very soon. Also, because there are no guides, it slips to the side and has already damaged the fridge seal. What a shame. Such a backward step on the design, although probably cheaper to produce like this? The appliance is very quiet and the cabinet finish is lovely, like all my other Miele kitchen appliances. But I can't stand the lack of shelf positions or the design of the bottle rack or the bottom drawer. I am currently looking for another fridge freezer.

    So much space inside and so well designed!

    5/5
    We bought this fridge freezer to replace a Miele we had had for 14 years. This one is even better than the last. So much space inside, nice and bright, enormous vegetable drawer (single as opposed to split in two which I prefer as it maximises space). It’s extremely tall but we’ve put the bottle rack at the very top which makes best use of the space for us. It was a bit fiddly to change the door-opening direction but we managed! Would definitely recommend this appliance.

    Very impressed!

    This fridge freezer is just lovely! I'm sad enough to enjoy opening the door of it and gazing at the well-organised contents!! It is well laid out and beautifully finished. I have several Miele appliances and am very pleased that I sought them out again when making this choice.

    Great fridge freezer

    4/5
    Fridge freezer is good and plenty of room in the fridge. The build quality is good and the shelves are solid and well thought out. The lower door bottle shelf could benefit from being a little wider as you would struggle with larger milk bottles fitting. Also when trying to find the serial number of the product to register it, you have to be aware it’s near the veg bin inside and the number you need is not marked as serial number.

    A good well made product which is efficient & practical. The build standard is superior to all other products I have examined. I have only one complaint what on earth is the use of a bottle rack. I would never store wine in a fridge
