5 Reasons For for Choosing the Gorenje IT643BSC

Keep Warm Function

The Gorenje IT643BSC has a keep warm function (as does the Siemens EX875KYW1E), but the AEG IKB84431XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not have this feature. 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 IT643BSC has a pan detection system, and so do the AEG IKB84431XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B and the Siemens EX875KYW1E, whereas the Whirlpool AKT8090LX does not. 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 IT643BSC has an automatic shut off system (as do the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B and the Siemens EX875KYW1E), but the AEG IKB84431XB and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX do not have this feature. 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.

Built-in Display

The Gorenje IT643BSC has a built-in display, and so do the AEG IKB84431XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B and the Siemens EX875KYW1E, but the Whirlpool AKT8090LX does not. 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.

One Month Newer

The Gorenje IT643BSC 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 Siemens EX875KYW1E was released four years ago and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX was released seven years ago

$177 More Expensive

The Gorenje IT643BSC is more expensive than the Whirlpool AKT8090LX by $177.

Electronic Ignition

The AEG IKB84431XB has an electronic ignition, and so does the Whirlpool AKT8090LX, whereas the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B, the Gorenje IT643BSC and the Siemens EX875KYW1E 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.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the AEG IKB84431XB

Only 14 Power Levels

The AEG IKB84431XB has 14 power levels, however the Siemens EX875KYW1E only has 17 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Gorenje IT643BSC 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The AEG IKB84431XB has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Bosch Serie 4 PWP631BF1B scored 83 and the Whirlpool AKT8090LX scored 82.
