Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 62?

Nesco is a mediocre fryer brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better fryers are available.
This fryer has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has an adjustable thermostat
Has a viewing window
This NESCO 1.2l deep fryer is the ideal size for individual servings and small families
Stainless steel housing
Breakaway cord
Adjustable thermostat
Hinged lid removes for easy cleaning
Non-stick coating on non-removable oil container

What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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