Why Has it Scored 78?

reviews indicate that it has outstanding user reviews with an average user rating of 91%.
This freezer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer freezers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch freezer has an efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £560 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The GCM28AW30 has some great features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Larger than average freezing capacity
Has a defrost function

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each freezer 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 freezer is recommended.

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