Why Has it Scored 86?

purchasers report that it has great user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this mixer to others.
This mixer is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer mixers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Kenwood mixer has running costs of £120 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 80 mixers that we have calculated running costs for.
The KM240 is one of the best selling mixers currently on the market.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a whisk

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.
