Why Has it Scored 87?

purchasers report that it has very good user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this microwave to others.
At over a year old this microwave is slightly out of date, and newer microwaves with more up to date technology are available.
This microwave has running costs of $340 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 1,100+ microwaves that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some great features:
Big interior capacity
11 power levels
Has a convection cooking
Features - easy to-use electronic controls with digital display
Rotating glass turntable for even heat distribution
6 preprogrammed cooking modes
Convenient auto defrost modes by weight or time
Express cooking function for instant start up

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.
