Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

reviews indicate that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 84%, based on 37 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 LEC freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £650 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The CF250L has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Has a defrost function
Ideal for use in outbuildings for extra freezer space
Electronic temperature controls make adjusting the temperature easy
Integrated LED lighting will illuminate your freezer
Higher than average noise level
Shorter than average storage time during power failure

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.
