4 Reasons For for Choosing the AEG HK624000XB

Child Lock

The AEG HK624000XB has a child lock (as does the Smeg SE2664CX2), whereas the Samsung C61R1AAMST, the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA do 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 AEG HK624000XB has a built-in display, but the Samsung C61R1AAMST, the Smeg SE2664CX2, the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The AEG HK624000XB has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Samsung C61R1AAMST scored 80, the Smeg SE2664CX2 scored 82, the Whirlpool AKM332IX scored 82 and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA scored 82.

Better Brand

AEG hobs have an average rating of 89.9%, however Samsung only has an average rating of 71.5%, Smeg only has an average rating of 80.2%, Whirlpool only has an average rating of 77.6% and Zanussi only has an average rating of 76.1%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the AEG HK624000XB

Two Less Electric Cooking Zones

The AEG HK624000XB is a four electric cooking zone hob (as does the Whirlpool AKM332IX), whereas the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA only has 6zone(s) electric cooking zones. More ...

We do not know the number of electric cooking zones on the Samsung C61R1AAMST or the Smeg SE2664CX2. It is possible that they do not have any electric cooking zones.

The number of electric cooking zones on the hob.

More cooking zones mean that you can cook more food at once, making the hob more efficient and meaning you can prepare large meals faster.

More Expensive by $284

The AEG HK624000XB is $198 more expensive than the Samsung C61R1AAMST, $284 more expensive than the Whirlpool AKM332IX and $179 more expensive than the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA.

Older by Over Four Years

The AEG HK624000XB is five years older than the Whirlpool AKM332IX and four months older than the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA.

Multiple reviews mentioned that Samsung C61R1AAMST has good user reviews with an average user rating of 80%.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Samsung C61R1AAMST

Electronic Ignition

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has an electronic ignition (as does the Smeg SE2664CX2), but the AEG HK624000XB, the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA do not have this feature. 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 Samsung C61R1AAMST

Does Not Have a Pan Detection System

The Samsung C61R1AAMST does not have a pan detection system, however the AEG HK624000XB, the Smeg SE2664CX2, the Whirlpool AKM332IX and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA do. 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, but the AEG HK624000XB scored 83, the Smeg SE2664CX2 scored 82, the Whirlpool AKM332IX scored 82 and the Zanussi ZEV6046XBA scored 82.

More Expensive by $86

The Samsung C61R1AAMST is $86 more expensive than the Whirlpool AKM332IX.
