Whilst this freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, its running costs of £960 over 10 years are in the most expensive 3% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some great features:

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.
