Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 87?

owners report that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 89%, based on 11 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 Indesit freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, however its running costs of £710 over 10 years are in the most expensive 20% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The DCF 1A 300 has some great features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Has a defrost function
Has a fast freeze function

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.
