6 Reasons For for Choosing the Gorenje IT643BX

Keep Warm Function

The Gorenje IT643BX has a keep warm function, but the AEG IKB84431XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B, the Cookology CIP613 and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not. More ...

'Keep Warm Function' denotes whether the hob has the function to run at a low heat, just enough to keep food warm without continuing to cook it.

A keep warm function is very helpful for keeping food fresh and warm until it's ready to be eaten.

Pan Detection System

The Gorenje IT643BX has a pan detection system (as do the AEG IKB84431XB and the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B), whereas the Cookology CIP613 and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not 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.

Automatic Shut Off System

The Gorenje IT643BX has an automatic shut off system, and so does the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B, but the AEG IKB84431XB, the Cookology CIP613 and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not. More ...

'Automatic Shut Off System' indicates whether the hob has a system to automatically shut off the power in case of any detected faults (power spikes, leaks, strange behaviour, etc).

An automatic shut-off system can help protect against any accidents causing damage to the hob or the surrounding area.

Child Lock

The Gorenje IT643BX has a child lock (as do the AEG IKB84431XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX), whereas the Cookology CIP613 does not have this feature. More ...

'Child Lock' denoted whether the hob has a feature to stop the hob from functioning, in order to stop children accidentally starting the hob and hurting themselves.

A child lock can help stop any accidents from prying little fingers.

Built-in Display

The Gorenje IT643BX has a built-in display (as do the AEG IKB84431XB and the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B), but the Cookology CIP613 and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' denotes whether the hob comes with a display that shows information about the current status of the appliance.

A built-in display can allow you to see what hobs are turned on at a glance, as well as other important info.

Newer by One Month

The Gorenje IT643BX was released three years ago, but the AEG IKB84431XB was released three years ago, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B was released four years ago, the Cookology CIP613 was released four years ago and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX was released seven years ago

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Gorenje IT643BX

More Expensive by $282

The Gorenje IT643BX is $282 more expensive than the Cookology CIP613 and $172 more expensive than the Whirlpool AKT8090LX.

Worse Brand

Gorenje hobs have an average rating of only 69.7%, however AEG has an average rating of 87.6%, Bosch has an average rating of 95%, Cookology has an average rating of 73.5% and Whirlpool has an average rating of 83.9%.

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.

Significantly Better User Reviews

Based on 8 user reviews, the AEG IKB84431XB has an average review score of 100%, whereas the Cookology CIP613 has an average rating of 66% (based on 13 reviews).

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the AEG IKB84431XB

Three Less Power Levels

We do not know the number of power levels on the Cookology CIP613, the Gorenje IT643BX or the Whirlpool AKT8090LX. 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.
