What is the Kagoo Score?

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

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