9 Reasons For for Choosing the AEG IKB64301XB

Pan Detection System

The AEG IKB64301XB has a pan detection system, and so does the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, however the Neff T26DS49N0, the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA do 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.

Child Lock

The AEG IKB64301XB has a child lock, and so do the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA, however the Neff T26DS49N0 and the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B do not. 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 IKB64301XB has a built-in display, and so does the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA, whereas the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, the Neff T26DS49N0 and the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B do 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.

Residual Heat Indicator

The AEG IKB64301XB has a residual heat indicator, and so do the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA, whereas the Neff T26DS49N0 and the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B 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 AEG IKB64301XB has an electronic ignition, and so do the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B and the Neff T26DS49N0, whereas the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The AEG IKB64301XB has received a Kagoo Score of 88, whereas the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B scored 86, the Neff T26DS49N0 scored 87, the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B scored 86 and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA scored 87.

More Shops Are Selling it

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

Five Months Newer

The AEG IKB64301XB is 13 months newer than the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B, 16 months newer than the Neff T26DS49N0, five months newer than the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and six years newer than the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA

User Reviews Are a Little Better

Based on 11 reviews, the average user review score of the AEG IKB64301XB is 96%, whereas the average rating of the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B is 95% (based on 209 reviews), the average rating of the Neff T26DS49N0 is 92% (based on 33 reviews), the average rating of the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B is 93% (based on 32 reviews) and the average rating of the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA is 88% (based on 5 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the AEG IKB64301XB

'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.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B

17 Power Levels

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B is a 17 power level hob, whereas the Neff T26DS49N0 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 Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B. 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, and so does the AEG IKB64301XB, whereas the Neff T26DS49N0, the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA do 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 Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has an automatic shut off system, but the AEG IKB64301XB, the Neff T26DS49N0, the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.

Child Lock

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has a child lock, and so do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA, whereas the Neff T26DS49N0 and the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B do not. 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.

Residual Heat Indicator

The Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has a residual heat indicator, and so do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA, but the Neff T26DS49N0 and the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B 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 Bosch Serie 4 PUE611BF1B has an electronic ignition, and so do the AEG IKB64301XB and the Neff T26DS49N0, but the Russell Hobbs RH75GH601B and the Zanussi ZEV8646XBA 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.
