Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 87?

It has great user reviews with an average user rating of 89%, based on 295 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. View the latest freezers 2018.
This Essentials freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £390 over 10 years are in the cheapest 11% of all 1,710 freezers that we have compared it to. View all energy saving freezers.
The C61CF13 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Lower than average noise level
CFC & HFC free
Lower than average freezer net capacity
Smaller than average freezer gross capacity

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.
