What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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