The CVB20RNE1 has some great features:
Lower than average noise level
Large freezing capacity
Five shelves / baskets
Has a temperature alarm
50's retro style aesthetic

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.
