6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Whirlpool AKM330IX

Only Six Power Levels

The Whirlpool AKM330IX is a six power level hob, whereas the Samsung C61R1AAMST only has nine power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Cookology CET600, the Hoover HGH 64 or the Neff T26BR46N0. 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 Whirlpool AKM330IX has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, but the Cookology CET600 scored 85, the Hoover HGH 64 scored 80, the Neff T26BR46N0 scored 76 and the Samsung C61R1AAMST scored 80.

Not Currently Available

This hob does not seem to be currently available. More ...

Over Four Years Older

The Whirlpool AKM330IX is older than the Cookology CET600 by four years, older than the Hoover HGH 64 by 10 months and older than the Neff T26BR46N0 by 20 months.

Hugely Lower User Review Score

The Whirlpool AKM330IX only has an average user rating of 67%, but the Cookology CET600 has an average user rating of 90% (based on 26 reviews), the Hoover HGH 64 has an average user rating of 90% (based on 2 reviews), the Neff T26BR46N0 has an average user rating of 86% (based on 19 reviews) and the Samsung C61R1AAMST has an average user rating of 80% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

Whirlpool hobs have an average rating of only 77.6%, however Neff has an average rating of 86.7%.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung C61R1AAMST

Nine Power Levels

The Samsung C61R1AAMST is a nine power level hob, whereas the Whirlpool AKM330IX only has six power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Cookology CET600, the Hoover HGH 64 or the Neff T26BR46N0. 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.

Residual Heat Indicator

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has a residual heat indicator, but the Cookology CET600, the Hoover HGH 64, the Neff T26BR46N0 and the Whirlpool AKM330IX do not. More ...

'Residual Heat Indicator' denotes whether the hob has a special light or indicator to show when the burners are hot, even after use.

Hobs will still be hot for a while after use, but it isn't always immediately obvious that they do still carry heat - especially with induction hobs. A heat indicator helps prevent you from accidentally burning yourself.

Electronic Ignition

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has an electronic ignition, and so do the Hoover HGH 64 and the Neff T26BR46N0, but the Cookology CET600 and the Whirlpool AKM330IX 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

Does Not Have a Pan Detection System

The Samsung C61R1AAMST does not have a pan detection system, however the Cookology CET600, the Hoover HGH 64, the Neff T26BR46N0 and the Whirlpool AKM330IX 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, but the Cookology CET600 scored 85.

$90 More Expensive

The Samsung C61R1AAMST is more expensive than the Cookology CET600 by $59 and more expensive than the Hoover HGH 64 by $90.

Over Seven Years Older

The Samsung C61R1AAMST is older than the Cookology CET600 by eight years, older than the Hoover HGH 64 by five years, older than the Neff T26BR46N0 by five years and older than the Whirlpool AKM330IX by four years.

A Lot Lower User Review Score

The Samsung C61R1AAMST has an average user rating of 80%, but the Cookology CET600 has an average user rating of 90% (based on 26 reviews), the Hoover HGH 64 has an average user rating of 90% (based on 2 reviews) and the Neff T26BR46N0 has an average user rating of 86% (based on 19 reviews).

Worse Brand

Samsung hobs have an average rating of only 71.5%, however Hoover has an average rating of 73.5%, Neff has an average rating of 86.7% and Whirlpool has an average rating of 77.6%.

The cheapest price that we found for the C61R1AAMST in the United States is $241.43 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Hoover HGH 64

Wok Burner

The Hoover HGH 64 has a wok burner, however the Cookology CET600, the Neff T26BR46N0, the Samsung C61R1AAMST and the Whirlpool AKM330IX do not. More ...

A wok burner is an extra-large burner meant for use with woks and other large-bottom pans.

Wok burners help distribute the heat more evenly across the entire diameter of the wok, meaning cooking is more even and effective.

Electronic Ignition

The Hoover HGH 64 has an electronic ignition, and so do the Neff T26BR46N0 and the Samsung C61R1AAMST, but the Cookology CET600 and the Whirlpool AKM330IX 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).
