Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

It has great user reviews with an average user rating of 85%, based on 17 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. View the latest freezers 2019.
This LEC freezer has an efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £400 over 10 years are in the cheapest 12% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have compared it to. View all energy saving freezers.
The U5010 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Lower than average noise level
CFC & HFC free
Total gross capacity (litres) - 72l
Total net capacity (litres) - 70l
Handle type - recessed
Very low freezer net capacity
Very short 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.
