1 Reason For for Choosing the Samsung C61R1AAMST

Electronic Ignition

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has an electronic ignition, and so do the AEG HK634060XB and the Smeg SE2664CX2, whereas the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA do not. More ...

An electronic ignition is a special device to ignite the hob at the press of a switch, without the need for the standard manual aids (such as matches).

Electronic ignitions are far more efficient and less prone to mistakes than standard manual ignitions - they will always work first time.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung C61R1AAMST

Only Nine Power Levels

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has nine power levels, and so does the Smeg SE2664CX2, however the AEG HK634060XB only has 15 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Whirlpool AKM332IX or the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA. It is possible that they do not have any power levels.

'Power Levels' indicates the number of different power stages (low, medium, high, etc) on the hob the user can choose from.

More power levels means that the hob is more versatile, and can handle temperatures from very low to extremely hot.

Does Not Have a Pan Detection System

The Samsung C61R1AAMST does not have a pan detection system (As does the the AEG HK634060XB), but the Smeg SE2664CX2, the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA have this feature. More ...

A pan detection system is a special function of induction hobs, where they can measure the power delivered by the hob to tell when a cooking utensil has been placed onto or removed from the hob.

A pan detection system is very helpful for saving energy by only activating the hob when a pan is placed on it, and for reducing the chance of someone burning themselves by forgetting the hob was turned on and hot.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the AEG HK634060XB scored 82 and the Whirlpool AKM332IX scored 82.

$93 More Expensive

Worse Brand

Samsung hobs have an average rating of only 77%, but AEG has an average rating of 90.6%, Whirlpool has an average rating of 83.2% and Zanussi has an average rating of 80%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the C61R1AAMST in the US is $260.82 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
