The product as a whole is very nice looking and we were very pleased with it. now we have had it a while we realise that it's not easy to clean, whereas i mean to take out the top it is very awkward, to clean the plastic which is what needs doing regularly. Also the wheel is very noisy so we will have to look at buying another one i think. The gerbils love it though.
Great cage. Lovely bedding area that the gerbils can chew, dig and make endless tunnels in. Play area with food bowl, water and wheel works well and easily cleaned.
Storage area very useful. My 9 year old daughter loves the cage and it must be robust because it is all still in one piece. Plus gerbils seem very happy with their home!
We love this cage at home. It is extremely easy to keep clean and it is big enough to fit everything we need inside.
The storage underneath means we can keep all the food and bedding to hand. In ours we can fit a pack of carefresh, food, kitchen roll, spray, bedding and a few treats!
the bottom section is great for our playing with our hamster Gimli, and is ideal for young children.
After reading some reviews online about the size of the cage we were a bit skeptical about the suitability for our Syrian however this is a great size for 1 hamster, and if you take your hamster out often to play it is perfectly fine, and it is a lot larger than cages used in our local pet store.
The wheel is so quiet and we can only hear it slightly when Gimli runs like lightning on it.
My only quibble (very minor) was that it took both me and my partner 3 hours to build due to assembling the storage compartment, however once built it is a very study cage.
Even though it is one of the more expensive cages on the market it is worth the money as its built to last and comes with everything you need to get started, and by the time we added up getting a cheaper cage with all the accessories the price would come out roughly the same anyway.
Overall this is fab cage and it is a bonus that there is two levels.
This is the best hamster cage we have had. The cage is easy to clean, looks good, provides lots of room for the hamster and no sawdust gets on the floor! The hamster seems really at home and has a good depth for digging and burying things in.
The storage underneath is surprisingly roomy too.
This is amazing! So easy to clean and change bedding. I'd say only suitable for two maximum, and some may want a slightly bigger home for their gerbils, but it really is worth every penny. Easy to build and I love the storage underneath. Interestingly my gerbils wouldn't run in their old wheel but they do in this one.
I only have one issue. I have a Chinese hamster and he is too small to use the tube. I was able to fix the problem by filling the bottom drawer compleatly w bedding. I then took the tube out and now he can burrow in the bottom and still get "upstairs" to eat, drink and play. After buying numerous cages before this one I am happy to say this is the best cage yet!!! Worth the $!
Omlet Says: Hi Rachel, have you considered putting in a ladder or a ramp to help your hamster access upstairs? We have heard this is a successful alternative for smaller hamsters.

Love this cage for our 2 mice. Only criticism would be the metal bars have some sort of black coating, but within days the mice chewed this, which exposed the silver colour underneath, making it look a little untidy and harder to sell if selling on second hand. Why not just have silver/metal bars to combat this?
Tigga was lucky enough to get a new cage for Christmas and it is brilliant. Easy to clean, no mess, the dogs love to watch him play on his wheel and he is very safe, it doesn't fall apart every time we try and move it. It has a fab storage cupboard for all his treats too.
We are first time gerbil owners! Did lots of research and are delighted with the Qute cage. Both gerbils took a few days to workout that they could climb the tube, so we were moving them ourselves from one floor to another. However, now they are absolutely fine reaching both levels when they want to. The upper shelf was slightly damaged on arrival, but a replacement was sent immediately. Great product and service.
Bought this cage on a whim. Previously had a Pico XL. Hands-down this cage is better in every aspect. For a a Syrian hamster it's perfect... loads of space and the perfect separation of "living" areas. Plus its matches all of our furniture in the front room. In fact it look so well placed it's like we've designed our living space around this cage. Buy one!
