Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 81?

Siemens is an excellent extractor fan brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better kitchen extractors are available.
This cooker hood has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has an intensive speed mode
Has a built-in display
The 680 m3/h extraction rate supplies clean air when cooking
The energy-saving LED lighting ensures optimal visibility when cooking
Lower than average maximum extraction power
Only one filter

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each cooker hood by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the cooker hood is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec cooker hoods come to market, the older cooker hoods will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
