1 Reason For for Choosing the John Lewis JLCHDD901

Newer by One Month

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 is 19 months newer than the Luxair LA90DWNSS, 19 months newer than the Neff I91VT44N0B, one month newer than the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 and nine months newer than the Smeg KDD60VXE2

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the John Lewis JLCHDD901

532m³/h Lower Maximum Extraction Power

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 has a maximum extraction power of 668, however the Luxair LA90DWNSS is a 1,200m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (532m³/h higher), the Neff I91VT44N0B is a 600m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (68m³/h lower), the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 is a 690m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (22m³/h higher) and the Smeg KDD60VXE2 is a 570m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (98m³/h lower). More ...

'Max Extraction Power' denotes the maximum speed of air extraction for the cooker hood.

A higher extraction power means that the cooker hood will remove odours quicker, and be more effective as a whole.

Louder Noise Level

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 has a noise level of 68, but the Luxair LA90DWNSS is a 63dB noise level cooker hood (5dB quieter), the Neff I91VT44N0B is a 73dB noise level cooker hood (5dB louder), the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 is a 59dB noise level cooker hood (9dB quieter) and the Smeg KDD60VXE2 is a 62dB noise level cooker hood (6dB quieter). More ...

'Noise Level' denotes the noise level of the cooker hood, measured in decibels (dB).

Lower dB means less noise while the air is being extracted, which means it's less imposing and annoying to use everyday.

Worse Kagoo Score

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 has received a Kagoo Score of 70, whereas the Neff I91VT44N0B scored 71, the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 scored 78 and the Smeg KDD60VXE2 scored 77.

More Expensive by £1,200

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 is £219 more expensive than the Luxair LA90DWNSS, £1,200 more expensive than the Neff I91VT44N0B, £590 more expensive than the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 and £600 more expensive than the Smeg KDD60VXE2.

Fewer Sellers

The John Lewis JLCHDD901 is only stocked by 1 seller, but the Luxair LA90DWNSS is stocked by 2 retailers, the Neff I91VT44N0B is stocked by 2 retailers, the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 is stocked by 2 sellers and the Smeg KDD60VXE2 is stocked by 4 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Worse Brand

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Neff I91VT44N0B

Intensive Speed Mode

The Neff I91VT44N0B has an intensive speed mode (as do the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 and the Smeg KDD60VXE2), whereas the John Lewis JLCHDD901 and the Luxair LA90DWNSS do not have this feature. More ...

One More Speed Levels

The Neff I91VT44N0B is a four speed levels cooker hood (as do the Luxair LA90DWNSS and the Smeg KDD60VXE2), whereas the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 only has three speed levels. More ...

We do not know the number of speed levels on the John Lewis JLCHDD901. It is possible that it does not have any speed levels.

'Removable Filter' denotes whether the cooker hood has a filter that can be easily removed to be cleaned.

Removable filters make it easier to keep the cooker hood working at peak efficiency.

Washable Filter

The Neff I91VT44N0B has a washable filter, and so does the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50, whereas the John Lewis JLCHDD901, the Luxair LA90DWNSS and the Smeg KDD60VXE2 do not. More ...

'Washable Filter' indicates whether the cooker hood has a filter that can be washed to remove caked-on dirt and grease.

Washable filters make it easier to keep the cooker hood working at peak efficiency, and save you money on having to buy new ones.

£600 Cheaper

A higher extraction power means that the cooker hood will remove odours quicker, and be more effective as a whole.

17% Louder Noise Level

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Smeg KDD60VXE2

Built-in Display

The Smeg KDD60VXE2 has a built-in display, however the John Lewis JLCHDD901, the Luxair LA90DWNSS, the Neff I91VT44N0B and the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' denotes whether the cooker hood has a display that shows information about the cooker hood, such as current mode, extraction power, any faults, etc.

Built-in displays allow you to see the current status of the hood at a glance, allowing you to easily diagnose problems and see what level it's working at.

Intensive Speed Mode

The Smeg KDD60VXE2 has an intensive speed mode, and so do the Neff I91VT44N0B and the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50, however the John Lewis JLCHDD901 and the Luxair LA90DWNSS do not. More ...

'Intensive Speed Mode' denotes whether the cooker hood has a special high-speed mode that can push the motor hard in order to extract air very quickly from the kitchen.

Intensive speed is useful in emergencies, such as the good ol' 'It's 3am, I'm drunk and I want some toast' situation.

Four Speed Levels

The Smeg KDD60VXE2 has four speed levels, and so do the Luxair LA90DWNSS and the Neff I91VT44N0B, however the Siemens iQ500 LD96DAM50 only has three speed levels. More ...

We do not know the number of speed levels on the John Lewis JLCHDD901. It is possible that it does not have any speed levels.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Smeg KDD60VXE2

630m³/h Lower Maximum Extraction Power
