Our Verdict:
A classic and bargain price 197L capacity freezer, with low running costs and a good spec. Reviews indicate that this freezer is very well designed, excellent in terms of power usage but it has bad baskets.

Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 84?

reviews indicate that it has very good user reviews with an average user rating of 88%, based on 53 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 LEC freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, and its running costs of £590 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The CF200L has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a defrost function
Has a thermostat
Save room in your kitchen with a freezer suitable for outbuildings
Precise temperature adjustment thanks to electronic control
Quickly find ingredients with LED lighting
Higher than average noise level
Shorter than average storage time during power failure

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.
