Bosch 800 Series Refrigerators | B36CT80SNS Review

The Bosch 800 Series is one of the newest refrigerators on the market. It has some great new features and a few problems you should know about before you buy.

In this video, you will learn about all the best features of the B36CT80SNS & B36CT81SNS, its reliability, and then a brief comparison against GE, Samsung, and the new Beko on the market. In the end, you will know whether the Bosch is right for you.

First this refrigerator is offered two styles: the B36CT80SNS and B36CT81SNS. The 81 has Pro handles and is a nice compliment to a Pro range if you are remodeling your kitchen. Otherwise, it is the same refrigerator with a $300 added cost with the Pro handles.

Bosch’s best feature is their 2 compressors. Sub-Zero made two compressor refrigerators popular years ago. Basically, two compressors keep air in separate chambers to eliminate crossover of taste, odor, and temperature from the warmer refrigerator to the colder freezer.

The reliability is slightly better than average at 20% service in the first year versus 25% for the industry.

Refrigerators have the highest repair rates due to icemakers. At 25% in the first year, you will probably need service within a couple of years. So, know who will be fixing your refrigerator before you buy. Not when you actually need service.

Bosch has more than any other brand and is significantly quieter. It’s a newer product so reliability should improve even more So it is worthy of consideration along with the Samsung, GE and Beko depending on the final prices and promotions as well as product availability.
