Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 79?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has excellent user reviews with an average user rating of 91%, based on 74 reviews.
At over a year old this fridge is slightly out of date, and newer fridges with more up to date technology are available.
This fridge has an efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £240 over 10 years are in the cheapest 10% of all 1,600+ refrigerators that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a reversible doors
Has an adjustable feet
Only one fruit / veg drawer
Only three shelves / baskets

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each fridge 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 fridge is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec fridges come to market, the older fridges will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
