Why Has it Scored 78?

It has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 89%, based on 61 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 £430 over 10 years are in the cheapest 19% of all 1,713 freezers that we have compared it to. View all energy saving freezers.
The C99CF13 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
CFC & HFC free
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Very low freezer net 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.
