Why Has it Scored 86?

It has fantastic user reviews with an average user rating of 91%, based on 83 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. View the latest freezers 2018.
This LEC freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and its running costs of £450 over 10 years are typical compared to the other 1,710 freezers that we have compared it to. View all energy saving freezers.
The U5511 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Lower than average noise level
Has a defrost function
Total gross capacity (litres) - 85l
Total net capacity (litres) - 83l
Handle type - recessed
Very low freezer net capacity
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.
