Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 87?

reviews indicate that 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.
This Essentials freezer has an efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £390 over 10 years are in the cheapest 12% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The C61CF13 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a thermostat
Lower than average noise level
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.
