Why Has it Scored 80?

purchasers report that it has superb user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this freezer to others.
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 classification of A+, and its running costs of £450 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The U50263W has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a reversible doors
Has an ice cube tray
Total gross capacity (litres) - 80l
Total net capacity (litres) - 61l
Handle type - intergrated
Lower than average freezer capacity
Smaller than average freezing capacity

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.
