Multiple reviews mentioned that Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has superb user reviews with an average user rating of 100%.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Siemens IQ300 LB55564GB

7dB Quieter Noise Level

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is a 59 noise level cooker hood. That's 6dB quieter than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (65dB), 4dB quieter than the CDA CTE6SS (63dB) and 7dB quieter than the Elica Cube and the Miele DA186 (66dB). 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.

One More Motor

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has two motors, however the Elica Cube only has one motor. More ...

We do not know the number of motors on the CDA CTE6SS or the Miele DA186. It is possible that they do not have any motors.

The number of motors used to power the extractor in the cooker hood.

More motors means that the extractor will be more powerful, leading to greater speed and efficiency when venting smoke from your kitchen.

Intensive Speed Mode

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has an intensive speed mode (as do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Miele DA186), but the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube do not have this feature. 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.

Removable Filter

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has a removable filter (as do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Elica Cube), but the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 do not have this feature. More ...

'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.

Dishwasher Proof Filter

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has a dishwasher proof filter, and so does the Miele DA186, however the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK, the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube do not. More ...

The denotes whether the cooker hood has a filter that can be removed and cleaned using the dishwasher.

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

Washable Filter

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has a washable filter, and so do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Elica Cube, but the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has received a Kagoo Score of 80, however the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK scored only 67, the CDA CTE6SS scored only 70, the Elica Cube scored 75 and the Miele DA186 scored 78.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this cooker hood and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

Siemens cooker hoods have an average rating of 95%, whereas CATA only has an average rating of 70.3%, CDA only has an average rating of 88.6%, Elica only has an average rating of 90.4% and Miele only has an average rating of 86.9%.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Siemens IQ300 LB55564GB

Lower Maximum Extraction Power

Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is only 650 max extraction power. That's 130m³/h lower than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (780m³/h), 430m³/h higher than the CDA CTE6SS (220m³/h) and 50m³/h lower than the Elica Cube and the Miele DA186 (700m³/h). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB does not have a built-in display (As does the the Miele DA186), whereas the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK, the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube 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.

Hugely Dimmer Illuminance

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB has an illuminance of 335, but the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a 225lx illuminance cooker hood (110lx dimmer) and the Miele DA186 is a 750lx illuminance cooker hood (415lx brighter). More ...

The illuminance of your cooker hood measures how much light the inbuilt lamps give off.

A greater illuminance means more light when you're cooking - helpful at night or in dark kitchens.

Weaker Pressure

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is a 20 pressure cooker hood. That's 380 weaker than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (400) and 450 weaker than the Elica Cube (470). More ...

'Pressure' measures the pressure of the airflow being used to extract air, measured in 'Pascals'.

A greater pressure means the air is being moved with far more force, meaning smoke and odours are removed from your kitchen with greater efficiency.

One Less Speed Levels

The number of speed levels on the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is three (as do the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube), but the Miele DA186 only has four speed levels. More ...

The number of speed levels the cooker hood has. Normally these range from slow to very fast.

More speeds means the hood is more versatile, so can handle everything from weak smells to a kitchen full of smoke.

Significantly Smaller Maximum Recirculating Power

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is a 320 max recirculating power cooker hood, whereas the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a 645m³/h max recirculating power cooker hood (325m³/h bigger) and the Miele DA186 is a 350m³/h max recirculating power cooker hood (30m³/h bigger). More ...

'Max Recirculating Power' measures how powerful the motor in the cooker hood is at extracting and circulating air.

A more powerful motor means that more air can be extracted quicker, making the hood faster and more efficient at removing odours and smoke from the kitchen.

Only Two Filters

The number of filters on the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is two, and so does the Miele DA186, but the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK only has three filters. More ...

We do not know the number of filters on the CDA CTE6SS. It is possible that it does not have any filters.

'Filter' is the number of filters that are used by the cooker hood. The air will have to pass through all of them to be cleaned before being reintroduced into the kitchen.

If you have a recirculating cooker hood (i.e - the air is being cleaned and reintroduced), more filters will be more effective at removing bad smells and smoke from the air after cooking.

£70 More Expensive

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is more expensive than the CDA CTE6SS by £70.

Over Two Years Older

The Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is older than the Elica Cube by two years and older than the Miele DA186 by 23 months.

45% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs of the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB are £286 which is £88 more than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK, £70 more than the CDA CTE6SS and £85 more than the Elica Cube over five years. Show assumptions.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Elica Cube

49% Stronger Pressure

The Elica Cube is a 470 pressure cooker hood. That's 70 stronger than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (400) and 450 stronger than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB (20). More ...

'Pressure' measures the pressure of the airflow being used to extract air, measured in 'Pascals'.

A greater pressure means the air is being moved with far more force, meaning smoke and odours are removed from your kitchen with greater efficiency.

Removable Filter

The Elica Cube has a removable filter (as do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB), however the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 do not have this feature. More ...

'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 Elica Cube has a washable filter, and so do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB, however the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 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.

One Month Newer

The Elica Cube is three years newer than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK, five years newer than the CDA CTE6SS, one month newer than the Miele DA186 and two years newer than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Elica Cube

11% Lower Maximum Extraction Power

The Elica Cube has a maximum extraction power of 700, and so does the Miele DA186. That's 80m³/h lower than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (780m³/h), 480m³/h higher than the CDA CTE6SS (220m³/h) and 50m³/h higher than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB (650m³/h). 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.

10% Louder Noise Level

The Elica Cube is a 66 noise level cooker hood, and so does the Miele DA186. That's 1dB louder than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (65dB), 3dB louder than the CDA CTE6SS (63dB) and 7dB louder than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB (59dB). 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.

One Less Motor

The Elica Cube is a one motor cooker hood (as does the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK), whereas the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB only has two motors. More ...

We do not know the number of motors on the CDA CTE6SS or the Miele DA186. It is possible that they do not have any motors.

More motors means that the extractor will be more powerful, leading to greater speed and efficiency when venting smoke from your kitchen.

The number of speed levels the cooker hood has. Normally these range from slow to very fast.

More speeds means the hood is more versatile, so can handle everything from weak smells to a kitchen full of smoke.

Only One Filter

The Elica Cube has one filter, however the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK only has three filters and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB only has two filters. More ...

We do not know the number of filters on the CDA CTE6SS. It is possible that it does not have any filters.

'Filter' is the number of filters that are used by the cooker hood. The air will have to pass through all of them to be cleaned before being reintroduced into the kitchen.

If you have a recirculating cooker hood (i.e - the air is being cleaned and reintroduced), more filters will be more effective at removing bad smells and smoke from the air after cooking.

Worse Kagoo Score

The illuminance of your cooker hood measures how much light the inbuilt lamps give off.

A greater illuminance means more light when you're cooking - helpful at night or in dark kitchens.

Intensive Speed Mode

The Miele DA186 has an intensive speed mode, and so do the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB, however the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube 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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Miele DA186

11% Lower Maximum Extraction Power

The Miele DA186 has a maximum extraction power of 700 (as does the Elica Cube), however the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a 780m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (80m³/h higher), the CDA CTE6SS is a 220m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (480m³/h lower) and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is a 650m³/h max extraction power cooker hood (50m³/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.

A Little Louder Noise Level

The Miele DA186 has a noise level of 66 (as does the Elica Cube), but the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a 65dB noise level cooker hood (1dB quieter), the CDA CTE6SS is a 63dB noise level cooker hood (3dB quieter) and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is a 59dB noise level cooker hood (7dB 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Miele DA186 does not have a built-in display (As does the the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB), but the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK, the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube do. 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.

46% Smaller Maximum Recirculating Power

Miele DA186 is only 350 max recirculating power. That's 295m³/h smaller than the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK (645m³/h) and 30m³/h bigger than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB (320m³/h). More ...

'Max Recirculating Power' measures how powerful the motor in the cooker hood is at extracting and circulating air.

A more powerful motor means that more air can be extracted quicker, making the hood faster and more efficient at removing odours and smoke from the kitchen.

One Smaller Filter

The Miele DA186 has two filters (as does the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB), however the CATA Thalassa 900XGBK only has three filters. More ...

We do not know the number of filters on the CDA CTE6SS. It is possible that it does not have any filters.

'Filter' is the number of filters that are used by the cooker hood. The air will have to pass through all of them to be cleaned before being reintroduced into the kitchen.

If you have a recirculating cooker hood (i.e - the air is being cleaned and reintroduced), more filters will be more effective at removing bad smells and smoke from the air after cooking.

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a 780 max extraction power cooker hood. That's 560m³/h higher than the CDA CTE6SS (220m³/h), 80m³/h higher than the Elica Cube and the Miele DA186 (700m³/h) and 130m³/h higher than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB (650m³/h). 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.

Intensive Speed Mode

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK has an intensive speed mode (as do the Miele DA186 and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB), whereas the CDA CTE6SS and the Elica Cube do not have this feature. 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.

One More Speed Levels

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a four speed levels cooker hood (as does the Miele DA186), whereas the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB only has three speed levels. More ...

The number of speed levels the cooker hood has. Normally these range from slow to very fast.

More speeds means the hood is more versatile, so can handle everything from weak smells to a kitchen full of smoke.

A Lot Bigger Maximum Recirculating Power

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK has a maximum recirculating power of 645, however the Miele DA186 is only a 350m³/h max recirculating power cooker hood (295m³/h smaller) and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB is only a 320m³/h max recirculating power cooker hood (325m³/h smaller). More ...

'Max Recirculating Power' measures how powerful the motor in the cooker hood is at extracting and circulating air.

A more powerful motor means that more air can be extracted quicker, making the hood faster and more efficient at removing odours and smoke from the kitchen.

Three Filters

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is a three filter cooker hood, whereas the Elica Cube only has one filter and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB only has two filters. More ...

We do not know the number of filters on the CDA CTE6SS. It is possible that it does not have any filters.

'Filter' is the number of filters that are used by the cooker hood. The air will have to pass through all of them to be cleaned before being reintroduced into the kitchen.

If you have a recirculating cooker hood (i.e - the air is being cleaned and reintroduced), more filters will be more effective at removing bad smells and smoke from the air after cooking.

Removable Filter

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK has a removable filter (as do the Elica Cube and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB), whereas the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 do not have this feature. More ...

'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.

Filter Cleaning Indicator

'Filter Cleaning Indicator' denotes whether the cooker hood has a special indicator that marks when the filter needs cleaning.

This can be helpful to know exactly when the filter has become too dirty to continue working at peak efficiency, meaning it's time to clean or change it.

Washable Filter

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK has a washable filter, and so do the Elica Cube and the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB, whereas the CDA CTE6SS and the Miele DA186 do not. More ...

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

£110 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The CATA Thalassa 900XGBK is £18 cheaper to run than the CDA CTE6SS, £4 cheaper to run than the Elica Cube, £110 cheaper to run than the Miele DA186 and £88 cheaper to run than the Siemens iQ300 LB55564GB over five years. More ...
