Which? Best Buy

16 Reasons For for Choosing the Neff T36FB41X0G

Eight More Power Levels

The Neff T36FB41X0G is a 17 power level hob (as does the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B), whereas the AEG IKB64301XB only has nine power levels and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA only has 15 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Hotpoint PCN 642. It is possible that it does 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.

Pan Detection System

The Neff T36FB41X0G has a pan detection system (as do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B), whereas the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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 Neff T36FB41X0G has an automatic shut off system, and so does the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, but the AEG IKB64301XB, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.

Utensil Detection System

The Neff T36FB41X0G has a utensil detection system, whereas the AEG IKB64301XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA do not. More ...

A utensil detection system is a special function of induction hobs, where they can measure the power delivered by the hob to tell when a pan 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.

Child Lock

The Neff T36FB41X0G has a child lock (as do the AEG IKB64301XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA), whereas the Hotpoint PCN 642 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 Neff T36FB41X0G has a built-in display (as do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA), but the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B and the Hotpoint PCN 642 do not have this feature. More ...

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

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this hob.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Neff T36FB41X0G

Two Less Electric Cooking Zones

The Neff T36FB41X0G is a four electric cooking zone hob (as do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B), whereas the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA only has six electric cooking zones. More ...

We do not know the number of electric cooking zones on the Hotpoint PCN 642. It is possible that it does 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.

Does Not Have a Keep Warm Function

The Neff T36FB41X0G does not have a keep warm function, whereas the AEG IKB64301XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.

Does Not Have an Electronic Ignition

The Neff T36FB41X0G does not have an electronic ignition, whereas the AEG IKB64301XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA do. 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.

Does Not Have a Griddle

The Neff T36FB41X0G does not have a griddle, however the AEG IKB64301XB, the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA have this feature. More ...

'Griddle' indicates whether the hob comes with a griddle or not.

Griddles are extremely helpful for cooking everything from steaks to bread. Because of the grooves in the griddle, it means fat and grease run off the food rather than pooling around it, making the end result healthier!

More Expensive by $49

The Neff T36FB41X0G is $49 more expensive than the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA.

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Neff T36FB41X0G has an average user score of 93%, but the AEG IKB64301XB has an average user rating of 96% (based on 11 reviews), the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has an average user rating of 95% (based on 209 reviews) and the Hotpoint PCN 642 has an average user rating of 97% (based on 31 reviews).

Neff hobs have an average rating of only 89.6%, however AEG has an average rating of 91.7% and Bosch has an average rating of 95%.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B

Eight More Power Levels

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has 17 power levels (as does the Neff T36FB41X0G), however the AEG IKB64301XB only has nine power levels and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA only has 15 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Hotpoint PCN 642. It is possible that it does 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.

Pan Detection System

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has a pan detection system (as do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Neff T36FB41X0G), however the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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 Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has an automatic shut off system, and so does the Neff T36FB41X0G, whereas the AEG IKB64301XB, the Hotpoint PCN 642 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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 Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has a child lock (as do the AEG IKB64301XB, the Neff T36FB41X0G and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA), however the Hotpoint PCN 642 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.

Electronic Ignition

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has an electronic ignition (as do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Hotpoint PCN 642), whereas the Neff T36FB41X0G and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.

One More Award

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has received 1 award from an expert review site, but the AEG IKB64301XB has received no awards, the Hotpoint PCN 642 has received no awards and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA has received no awards.
