Re: Miele vs Liebherr Fridge/Freezer - your experience

My mother and grandmother ( and many other belgian moms) swear by Miele.
The washing machine at home is now 26 years old and still working like new.

I only know Liebherr from construction sites

Yep and tv's too .. not saying Liebherr is bad, just never saw it as a fridge.

Miele,Bosch,Beko etc..all brands you see everyday,then again i never lived in Switzerland or Germany before, where the brand is big.

No doubt its a great brand , just never had any dealings with it as my mother and her mother are pro-miele..

If it ain't miele,its not coming in the house she says

Re: Miele vs Liebherr Fridge/Freezer - your experience

I bought a side by side Liebherr in 2008 for nearly 5000ch- what a waste of money. just a week outside the guarantee the temperature button cracked. 6 months later the fridge door handle just snapped off and today the fridge section is stuck at -7c. At around 200ch for a call out from Fors/Liebherr contractor in Rolle, I would rather feed food embedded in ice crystals to my family while waiting to order a less-flashy but solidly engineered fridge. My daughter's Playmobil fridge is better quality. Do not waste your money on this pup!

We're currently looking for a new Fridge/Freezer for our new apartment.

Initially we decided to take Miele (side by side) Fridge/Freezer but the kitchen company proposes us to buy Liebherr. They told us Liebherr actually make Miele Fridge so 100% same quality but lower price (4860 vs 3618Sfr !!!! basing on same fridge/freezer mix, litre, energy rating and 95% of features)

I'm very very tempted to take Liebherr and spent the whole afternoon to research review in Liebherr and Miele but unfortnately 90% of comments are from US only (cause I only browsed english comments) + product purchased from US so seem not very relevant.

So could any member here share with me your experience in SWITZERLAND -I mean those PURCHASED Liebherr or Miele in SWITZERLAND and use it here or hear word of mouth from friends around?!!

thanks a lot.

FYI (my research basing on US website : Liebherr has common problem in door (hinge, stability), temperature stability of the fridge & freezer, after sales service)

Well......we finally got all Miele items --fridge, freezer, steamer, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, except Ventilation hood which we found Miele's range a way too much focusing on function than aesthetic.

I'm sure next question will be..."is it really worth it?" I could say it's too early to say as i just start using it for 1 week.....

However, it was whole lot of pain with the appliance due to the lack of knowledge of installer (sorry have to side track a bit)....pipe not correctly done, not communicating to us when an upgrade model is delivered (different panel and thus instruction manual..). So lesson no. 1 for me (when you buy new appliances for NEW appartment, make sure the installment do a good job regardless of the brand of appliance you bought especially if the product is innovative in the market and thus require extra attention during installation.

Will update on Miele's performance after a couple of months if anybody is interested to know...

Re: Miele vs Liebherr Fridge/Freezer - your experience

we have a 25years+ old Liebherr freezer at my parents' home, and it's still running without problems. But then, my grandma had a Miele washing machine that was more than 30yrs old. SO, I assume both are decent brands.

I have a General Electric Profile fridge. It has lasted longer than the Miele dishwasher that I needed to replace last year. I didn't find the Miele service particularly good either. They charged something like chf 75 call out and chf 150 an hour, and I spent chf 460 on a repair that fixed it for just over a year. I should have just put a new one in instead of repairing it.
I couldn't agree more. We inherited a 6 year old Miele fridge when we moved into our new home and we spent exactly 460 CHF on repairs that did not fix the issue! The fridge does not keep an even temperature--there are days where it doesn't cool lower than 9 degrees--and some days where it will stay at 5 degrees. On top of that, most Miele fridges and freezers are not frost-free. In this day and age that should be a minimal standard. Miele does good vacuums, dishwashers, and washing machines. But when you consider the price you pay for the fridges or freezers, there are brands which have higher quality and superior convenience.

Re: Miele vs Liebherr Fridge/Freezer - your experience

what's funny is that it's Liebherr that makes all fridges and freezers for Miele! So all those talks about relative quality can be thrown out the window...
