We've rounded up the the top five lawn mowers most viewed on the Which? website - but are any of them Which? Best Buys? 

Which? has test results for more than 90 lawn mowers online, and the Flymo Venturer 32 review was read more than any other over the past three months. Lawn mowers from Bosch and Qualcast were also among the most popular.

The five most popular lawn mowers range in price from under £70 to more than £500 and not all of them are Best Buys - they score from 77% down to 52%.

Which? lawn mower expert Adelaide Gray said: '2014 has seen many manufacturers produce cordless, battery lawn mowers designed to appeal to people who want a quick, simple mower. 

'We test every lawn mower on the things we know are important to you - so we can tell you exactly how good each mower is at cutting short, long, rough and damp grass, how fuel efficient it is, whether it collects grass well and how easy it it to use, before you buy.'
