How does it work?
We begin by building a list of strimmers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.
We then remove the strimmers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion. We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars.
After sorting the list by ratings, we compile the following Top 5.
