Miele Ventilation Hoods

Posted by regant (My Page) on

We are in the process of choosing a Miele Vent hood and are wondering why such a big price difference between the Classic and the Masterchef hoods. We can see that prices vary with size, but that, and the included features don't seem to justify the large difference in price.

Is it just the fancier styling of the Masterchef?

I tried googling Miele Masterchef hood, but couldn't come up with anything. It would help us help you if you provided model numbers, so we could look at what you are looking at, and help you figure out why the price difference. Or at least provide us more information (chimney hood? wall-hood? island hood? size?)

RE: Miele Ventilation Hoods

Good point!

We were looking at the Wall hoods and referring to the brochure on our Canadian website (
Here, it shows the 30" Classic Hoods DA398-5 and DA5980W at $1999 and $1599 respectively, whereas the 30" Masterchef Hood DA5381W is $2899.
The 36" Classic Hoods DA399-5 and DA5990W are priced at $2099 and $1649 respectively whereas the 36" Masterchef hoods DA289-4, DA5190W, DA5391W and DA6290W are priced at $3399, $3199, $3099 and $3399 respectively.
The specs don't seem to show any major extras on the Masterchef hoods. Am I missing something?
