Why Has it Scored 76?

Gorenje is an excellent freezer brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better freezers are available.
This freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, however its running costs of £810 over 10 years are in the most expensive 8% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some great features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Larger than average freezing 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.
