When I was looking at appliances for our new home the sales bloke took me on a tour of rangehoods, extractor fans etc stopping last of all at the Schweigen. It's super quiet, the motor is on the outside of the house, 5 speed settings, pulls apart easy for cleaning and very bright lights so you can see what you're doing while cooking. The whole time we were chatting I didn't realise the thing was even turned on to the highest setting. It is so quiet that I sometimes forget to switch it off. The price tag is pretty hefty but our house has a raked ceiling open plan living/kitchen/dining area which can get noisy. I'm glad we spent the extra coin on getting this as anything else would have driven us around the bend.
Is this thing even on?
So I've been cooking with an old/near non-existent exhaust fan. Every time I cook, the kitchen windows are open and the ceiling fan is on!
Just installed this beauty and let's just say, the first night I burnt my 'sauteed' garlic twice! I couldn't smell a thing!
And every night since, I keep forgetting to turn it off because it's so quiet! Now I am going to have to remember to use the timer feature.
So if you don't want a quiet and powerful rangehood, stay well clear from this one!

For the first time, a range hood that WORKS and is SILENT
I have remodelled a few kitchens over the years and have never been happy with the range hoods so this time I decided to seek advice about the most effective type to install. Overriding advice was that I needed at least 900cfm airflow and a remote motor/fan to keep the noise down. I bought the Schweigen unit with the motor mounted on the roof. It is so silent we sometimes forget that it is working but it extracts smoke, steam and odours in a most satisfying manner. Can't speak highly enough of it but if I did it again, I would get the higher airflow twin-motor unit. Noise is not a consideration as the motors are on the roof at least 5 metres way from the kitchen. The silence is BLISS.
Questions & Answers
Can anyone tell me the DB on their silent schweigen range hood? Probably looking at the external motor for the 1600m3
