We calculate the Kagoo Score for each tumble dryer 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 tumble dryer is recommended.

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