Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 88?

reviews indicate that it has great user reviews with 90% of buyers recommending this microwave to others.
This microwave is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer microwaves with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Russell Hobbs microwave has running costs of £420 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 1,000+ microwaves that we have calculated running costs for.
The RHM3002 has some great features:
Bigger than average interior capacity
10 power levels
Has a grill
Has a child lock

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.
