Why Has it Scored 80?

customers report that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 85%, based on 179 reviews.
This iron is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer irons with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Tefal iron has running costs of £240 over 5 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 720+ irons that we have calculated running costs for.
The FV4043 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a steam boost function
Has a vertical steam function
Very small water tank capacity
Less than average steam generating capacity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each iron 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 iron is recommended.

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