Why Has it Scored 81?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 85%, based on 47 reviews.
This fridge is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer fridges with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Kenwood fridge has an efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £300 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,600+ refrigerators that we have calculated running costs for.
The KUL55X17 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a reversible doors
Climate class rating of T
Compact design can be installed under 85 cm counters or higher
Cost-effective performance with an A+ energy rating
Smaller than average fridge capacity
Loud noise level

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.
