Our Verdict:
A very economical to run and classic 185L capacity freezer, with a good spec and a reasonable price. It has a built-in display, a defrost function and a temperature alarm and supports locking. Multiple reviews mentioned that it has brilliant features and it's really well designed, and easy to use.

Why Has it Scored 82?

reviews indicate that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 88%, based on 45 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 Hoover freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £490 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The CFH157AWK has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Has a temperature alarm
Features
High energy efficiency for greater savings on household bills
Generous storage capacity which is ideal for large families
Both your food and the appliance can be damaged. do not use it in any unheated atop features
Both your food and the appliance can be damaged. do not use it in any unheated area

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.
