AEG DBK6980HG review
Our testing found that two samples of this product failed the requirements that are designed to keep you safe in case of a fire in your kitchen.
A component in this cooker hood didn’t meet the industry standards for safety when it was exposed to a real flame in our test lab, making it a fire hazard.
AEG told us ‘We have tested multiple samples of these products, all of which passed the tests according to the standards without failure. These reports have been shared with Which?. Based on the test results, we are satisfied that these products are safe.
‘We treat Product Safety as our number one priority and any notification of a possible fire risk is investigated thoroughly.’
