Why Has it Scored 77?

purchasers report that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 88%, based on 215 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 energy efficiency classification of A+, and its running costs of £390 over 10 years are in the cheapest 11% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The CTF34W15 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a defrost function
Has a reversible doors
Lower than average 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.
