Why Has it Scored 82?

Russell Hobbs is an excellent toaster brand.
At over a year old this toaster is slightly out of date, and newer toasters with more up to date technology are available.
It has running costs of only £38 over 5 years, which puts it in the cheapest 19% of all 340+ toasters that we have calculated running costs for.
This toaster has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a defrost function
Has a roll holder
Only two slices

What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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