Why Has it Scored 80?

a number of reviews mentioned that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 86%, based on 40 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 Smeg freezer has an efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £570 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The CVB20LP1 has some great features:
Lower than average noise level
Large freezing capacity
Has a temperature alarm
Has a fast freeze function

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.
