Humble steam mop helps Kogan top list of Aussie favourite brands


Online retailer Kogan has been voted as one of Australia’s favourite brands in a survey of customer satisfaction and the company’s own brand of steam mops the best overall product.

The survey by Canstar Blue gave the Kogan branded steam mops 5 out of 5 stars across most categories, including reliability, value for money, ease of use, and overall satisfaction, while Kogan also won the Most Satisfied Customers award.

Kogan’s portable air-conditioner range was also recognised as the best value for money and Kogan was the only brand to receive 5 stars for value for money, and did so across both categories.

The Canstar Blue awards that have been given to Kogan are voted for by the public and Canstar says Kogan beat brands like Karcher, ALDI, Hoover, and De’Longhi.

“For brands to perform well in our customer reviews, they need to strike a good balance between product quality and a reasonable price, which is exactly what Kogan has been able to do” said Canstar Blue Editor, Simon Downes.

“Australians are savvy consumers and know if they’re getting a good deal or not. Price is not everything, but the feeling of getting good value for money from your purchases is hugely important to us all. Kogan has consistently rated highly with consumers in terms of value for money.”
