Why Has it Scored 82?

owners report that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 90%, based on 24 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 John Lewis freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, and its running costs of £580 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The JLCH200 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Has a defrost function
Only one shelf / basket

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.
