Quality Product - Alexis,

The product was shipped fast and the packaging kept the product from being damaged. Instructions were relatively easy to follow. The parts were very nice quality. It is a nice looking cage once assembled. The only issue that I had was that the hamster we selected really didn’t seem to be able to use the tube. This is a Teddy bear hamster and a larger rodent. The cage would probably work better for smaller rodents. Still a nice cage overall.

Nice cage. - Jenn,

Overall we love this cage. Great concept. My daughter uses this as a nightstand next to her bed. Plenty big for her hamster. Easy to clean. The only problem we have with this cage is that it is not made for a dwarf hamster. The tube is too big and completely vertical. Our tiny dwarf cannot climb it. We had to purchase a tubing system that sloped and winded down so she could get up to top. The tubes that we had to buy don’t fit correctly at top either. Had to come up with a way to get them to stay. Wish this was recognized by company and additional tubing was available for purchase to accommodate dwarf hamsters. We made it work and really like this cage but wish this was stated that cage may not be good for dwarf hamster.

Omlet Says: Hi Jenn, thanks so much for your review. We're really glad you and your daughter love the cage! I'm sorry to hear that your hamster has struggled slightly with the tube. We do actually have a paragraph on the product page for the Qute titled 'Safe and secure' stating that the cage is suitable for gerbils and Syrian hamsters but may not be suitable for dwarf hamsters. Fortunately it sounds as though you've managed to make it work for you and that's great!


Fabulous Hamster Condo - Victoria, New York,

I haven’t had a hamster since I was a kid so it was nice to find a cage that has evolved from the crazy color tube maze type table top cages. The modern sleek design blends in nicely with our decor. The two compact floors seem appropriate for our Chinese Dwarf but I think larger hamsters require more floor space. I like seeing how other Omlet cage owners modify theirs to accommodate their hamster needs. I added a battery operated lamp so that I and my hamster can see inside at night while she’s awake. Sushi wouldn’t use the tube to get up and down so only spent the night on the wheel (which is completely silent) for the first 2 weeks. I think the design of the tube is made for larger hamsters because the ladder rings inside of the tube are spaced too far apart for her to reach. I created a fleece lining for the tube and that night she went right to the bottom level. The cage is super easy and fast to clean. The only cons are the door handle to open the top area is a tiny bit flimsy and doesn’t easily open and close as smoothly as the handle for the bottom bin. (It’s obviously made for little fingers lol) It would be nice if the top of the cabinet opened for more easier access for cleaning. Overall it is a great value because this cage is so well made that it will be a home to many dwarfs for many years.

Wished we had started with this excellent cage - Luna,

This was our second cage for our daughters hamster. Positives : Very thoughtful design allowing you to clean the cage in two halves. Very high quality design. Aesthetically nice and fits in with bedroom furniture ????????‍♂️ Also seems to keep odor down more than a fully open cage. Having storage is such a great idea. Very useful for food storage, equipment, wipes, paper towel etc Hampster (Luna pictured) seems very content and got the hang of the tube in 20 mins (be patient) Improvements : Wish storage was 50% larger so it could accommodate bedding

Happy Gerbils - Louise,

Muffin and Misty love their new Qute! They even mastered the tube the first evening with a little help. Really easy to keep clean too. Another great Omlet product.

Product is nice - Cheryl,

The product itself is nice. I will say that the overall cage is too small for a syrian hamster. The tube hangs down so low that it is hard for my hamster to get under it. I had to rig it so it doesn't go down all the way. My hamster was really freaked out in it for a few days, she seems cramped in the space, but is adapting. It would be great for dwarf hamsters. It was not an easy project to build by yourself!

love it! - Rose,

my gerbils just moved into this a week ago and (even though a bit confused) they settled in almost immediately. it did take a little time to get up the tube but once they did they were up and down all the time. the only thing i could say is that sometimes (only sometimes) the food that they take out of the bowl (sometimes even poo) can fall down the back but its not enough of a bad thing to take away a star since it only rarely happens. i highly recommend as it is a lovely piece of furniture as well!

Excellent product - Splat,

Too small - Lacy,

It’s a lovely looking cage, but I feel really guilty for my two gerbils stuck in her. Which means, we have to ensure we give them 20-30 minutes each day in their ‘Playpen’ to ensure they get plenty of room to stretch and run around properly.

Omlet Says: Hi Lacy, thank you for your review. Please don't worry, I can assure you the cage is big enough for up to 1 hamster or 2 gerbils. Hamsters and gerbils, like other pets, do need time outside of their home. This is why we recommend exercise balls or mazes, half an hour every day or so will keep them happy, healthy and well stimulated so it sounds like you're already doing everything right.


Easy assembly - Michelle, Bucks,

Got this product for my Syrian hamster. She loves it. Easy assembly, took me and my partner less than 1 hour to put together. Also it’s so easy to clean!
