Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 76?

Smeg is an excellent freezer brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better freezers are available.
This freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £480 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Very long storage time during power failure
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.
