For the test issue 03/2021, Stiftung Warentest sent 18 extractor hoods, including chimney hoods, angled hoods and built-under hoods from manufacturers such as Miele, Berbel and Ikea to the test. Result: Only five expensive models eliminated grease and odors well overall. In the chimney hood area, the Miele PUR 98 W climbed up to the top with a grade of 2.2 (good).

For example, when it comes to grease and odor removal, safety and processing, and handling, it is clearly ahead. Only when it comes to energy consumption is it only rated as satisfactory.
