Why Has it Scored 85?

purchasers report that it has excellent user reviews with an average user rating of 96%, based on 18 reviews.
This fridge freezer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer fridge freezers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch fridge freezer has an efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £560 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 9,000+ fridge freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
The KGV33VL31 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Quieter than average noise level
Large freezer capacity
LowFrost: defrost less often thanks to lower ice formation - saves work and is energy-efficient
BigBox frozen food drawer: for stacking storage containers or for large frozen food items
CrisperBox: fruit and vegetables stay fresher for longer, thanks to humidity control
LED light: illuminates the refrigerator evenly without glare, lasts for the life of the appliance
Smaller than average fridge capacity
Does not have a door open alarm

What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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