Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 82?

reviews indicate that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 86%, based on 50 reviews.
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 energy efficiency classification of A++, and its running costs of £600 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The GSN36VB30 has some great features:
High freezer capacity
Large freezing capacity
Has a temperature alarm
Has a no frost system
Energy efficiency class a++: cools especially efficiently
VarioZone: more flexibility due to removable glass shelves and drawers in the freezer compartment
NoFrost: never defrost
Electronic temperature control: set the target temperature clearly and easily

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.
