Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

customers report that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 88%, based on 118 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 efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £370 over 10 years are in the cheapest 10% of all 1,800+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The U50052W has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Lower than average noise level
Has a temperature alarm
Total gross capacity (litres) - 32l
Total net capacity (litres) - 31l
Handle type - recessed
Reversible doors
Lower than average freezer capacity
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.
