7 Reasons For for Choosing the Hotpoint PCN 642

Four Burners / Cooking Zones

The number of burners / cooking zones on the Hotpoint PCN 642 is four, and so do the CDA HVG620BL, the Neff T26BR46N0 and the Whirlpool AKM330IX, but the Russell Hobbs 15199 only has 2zone(s) burners / cooking zones. More ...

The number of burners (gas) or cooking zones (electric) on the hob.

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

Wok Burner

The Hotpoint PCN 642 has a wok burner, however the CDA HVG620BL, the Neff T26BR46N0, the Russell Hobbs 15199 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.

Residual Heat Indicator

The Hotpoint PCN 642 has a residual heat indicator, and so does the Russell Hobbs 15199, but the CDA HVG620BL, 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 Hotpoint PCN 642 has an electronic ignition, and so do the CDA HVG620BL, the Neff T26BR46N0 and the Russell Hobbs 15199, but the Whirlpool AKM330IX does 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.

Nine Months Newer

The Hotpoint PCN 642 was released three years ago, but the CDA HVG620BL was released five years ago, the Neff T26BR46N0 was released four years ago, the Russell Hobbs 15199 was released five years ago and the Whirlpool AKM330IX was released five years ago

User Reviews Are Moderately Better

The average user review score of the Hotpoint PCN 642 is 97% based on 31 reviews, but the average rating of the CDA HVG620BL is 80% (based on 7 reviews), the average rating of the Neff T26BR46N0 is 86% (based on 19 reviews), the average rating of the Russell Hobbs 15199 is 93% (based on 15 reviews) and the average rating of the Whirlpool AKM330IX is 67% (based on 6 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Better

The average overall review score of the Hotpoint PCN 642 is 93% based on 31 reviews, but the average rating of the CDA HVG620BL is 80% (based on 7 reviews), the average rating of the Neff T26BR46N0 is 86% (based on 19 reviews) and the average rating of the Whirlpool AKM330IX is 67% (based on 6 reviews).

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Hotpoint PCN 642

Worse Kagoo Score

$129 More Expensive

The Hotpoint PCN 642 is more expensive than the Russell Hobbs 15199 by $129.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 store sell the Hotpoint PCN 642, however 2 stores sell the Russell Hobbs 15199. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this hob remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Worse Brand

The cheapest price that we found for the PCN 642 in the United States is $152.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
