Bosch Integrated Refrigeration


As a global leader in home appliances, Bosch know a thing or two about what makes the best fridge freezers worth buying. With so many features, functions, sizes, fit types and styles now available, we thought we'd help by making a little guide to help you in your search for a Bosch refrigerator - specifically, an integrated model. So you can choose the perfect device to keep food fresher for longer and make your life at home a little easier. 

Door Hinge Types

There are two types of door hinge fixings to choose from - fixed hinge or sliding hinge. If you are replacing an appliance, it is recommended to either upgrade from a sliding to a fixed hinge or choose a model which has the same door hinge type so you don't have to change your existing door fittings.

Fixed: The furniture door is fixed to the appliance door.

Sliding: The furniture door is attached to the cabinet and connected to the appliance door via sliding rails.

Fridge Freezer Split Types

The fridge freezer split ratio refers to the capacities of the fridge and freezer sections respectively. When you’re replacing an integrated fridge freezer, make sure you choose the same split type so it matches your existing kitchen cabinets.

A 70/30 split is the best if you need a lot more fridge space. The 60/40 split type has a slightly bigger fridge than it does a freezer. A 50/50 split gives you an equal size fridge and freezer. 

Capacities and Sizes

When choosing a fridge freezer, it’s worth remembering that larger exterior dimensions don’t always mean more internal storage. Some features and technology, such as Frost Free, use up space due to the internal components needed. It’s worth checking internal capacity to see if it fits the needs of your home and family.

Most integrated refrigeration models are designed and made to be installed into standard cavity sizes. For example, most integrated fridge freezers have the same dimensions so you have plenty of options when choosing a new one to fit into existing units. There can be exceptions though, especially in older fitted kitchens. It is always important to measure up first - every kitchen is different and existing structures, such as pipes and sockets, need to be taken into account. Measure the height, width and depth of the cavity of your existing appliance in millimetres to get the most accurate results.

Bosch don't usually label their fridge freezers with a specific split ratio, so it's important to check the measurements in the technical drawings to ensure it will fit any existing units.

Bosch Fridge and Freezer Features

Unless you're buying new appliances on a regular basis, you might not be familiar with the latest design and technology developments. Boschs' refrigeration models are packed with features designed to save time and energy and are designed to keep your food fresher for longer. A lot of the functions and technology seen on their models is unique to their brand, or is their special take on a popular feature.


Defrost Types

Bosch offer two clever defrosting solutions with their integrated refrigeration models. Low Frost ensures there is less ice formation than in a traditional freezer. Bosch's NoFrost technology prevents ice from forming all together, saving you time, energy, and effort. Their Low Frost and NoFrost technologies are available on both their combination refrigerators and their stand alone freezers.


Super Freezing

Frozen foods should be brought to the right temperature as quickly as possible after purchase. Boschs' Automatic Super Freezing function quickly freezes them to prevent slightly thawed items from defrosting. The freezer detects any rise in temperature and automatically adjusts the interior temperature to keep frozen goods in the safe temperature zone.


Big Box Storage

The extra large Big Box drawer lets you store multiple small food items or a few bulky ones in a transparent, practical container. From a stock of frozen vegetables to containers of batch cooked meals, look forward to just the storage space you need. Transparent freezer drawers help you to organise foods in a tidy way and can be easily removed should you need to store large items.


VitaFresh XXL

Store a wide range of perishables at just the right temperature and humidity level in the VitaFresh drawers with adjustable climate control. For meat and fish, set the drawer's temperature to around 0° Celsius to keep items fresh for longer. In the other drawer, create the perfect environment with the right humidity level for fruit and vegetables.


Super Cooling

Activate the Super Cooling function before you go shopping to lower the temperature in your fridge for a short period, so your fresh food is kept at the right temperature. The temperature is lowered by pushing a button, which is 2°C at the lowest. To prevent unnecessary power consumption, the function automatically switches back after approximately 6 hours.


Flexible Storage

Keep food organised and at a glance thanks to the interior designed for flexibility. Shatterproof Easy Access glass shelves let you load the fridge to your liking and provide a clear overview of the contents. Bottles and bowls fit on an adjustable Vario Shelf while tall bottles find a home in the bottle holder. The Multi Box offers ample space for your fresh food.
