Why Has it Scored 87?

several reviews mentioned that it has outstanding user reviews with an average user rating of 91%, based on 18 reviews. This microwave has received a "Best Buy" award from Which?.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer microwaves with better features are available. However this Sharp microwave has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The R860KM 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.
It has some great features:
Big interior capacity
Has a grill

Has a convection cooking

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.
