Igenix IG7600 Brushed Stainless Steel Compact Jug Kettle – Perfect purchase

This was better than i expected – looks good and does not mark like the polished ss kettles. Good size for two people, light easy to use, but much more sturdy than other small kettles we have had. Hope its long term performance is as good.

Glad i returned the expensive kettle i bought and kept this one. Comfortably holds enough water for a couple of cups of tea.

Excellent small kettle with only 1 fault, the water level is hard to see when filling and is easy to overfill however the economics of boiling only the volume needed is a plus point. For elderly people with arthritis in the hands the light weight makes using the kettle a safety factor as weight is not a problem. Here are the specifications for the Igenix IG7600 Brushed Stainless Steel Compact Jug Kettle:

  • Large ergonomic handle for easy pour
  • Removable and washable filter and concealed stainless steel element
  • Automatic safety cut off and boil dry protection
  • LED power indicator
  • Comes with 2 year warranty which can be registered online

Handle can become hot; just need to be mindful of that.

The jug kettle is as described: good looking, compact, sturdy. It’s quite comfortable to fill water in and to pour it out. I’m delighted that it may be cleaned very easily due to the fact that the heating elements are covered by smooth steely surface. There ist one negative aspect that other reviewers have mentioned: when the water is boiling the kettle gets very hot so you have to make sure not to touch the steel surface. As the handle ist rather large, you can easily avoid getting in touch with the hot material. It’s to be expected that steel gets hot when heated, however, families with smaller children should take precautions. Ein hinweis für deutsche käufer_innen: der britische ‘dreierstecker’ (3-pin) erfordert einen adapter, damit er in eine schuko-steckdose passt. Before buying this kettle i had seen a great range of different kettles and read a lot of reviews: whenever one item was pleasing to the eye, there were as a rule several negative aspects reported. With this igenix kettle i’m very pleased as good looks are combined with excellent function.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good small kettle.
  • Sturdy and goodlooking kettle
  • Great little kettle

1litre kettles that look like proper kitchen equipment are hard to find in shops or online. This kettle works beautifully. I tend to overfill but i am retraining myself. Yes the handle gets warm but that will be a bonus on cold mornings.

This has proved a hit with a lady who is often difficult to please. It is light and looks good on the work top. Stops you boiling too much water too.

There is not a lot of choice if you want a small kettle in brushed stainless steel (this was the only one this shape i found). The kettle works fine and pours well. I agree the water gauge is difficult to read and in practise i’ve found that i just rely on assessing the weight to work out whether there is enough water in it. Being left-handed i am disappointed that the light is on the left, rather than under the handle, so for me it is at the back. However, it is quite bright. I have found that sometimes there is more steam coming out when pouring than expected, so it can feel uncomfortable if your hands are sensitive to steam.

Very good kettle, just right for singles, good price, good quality.

We only buy 1 litre kettles which is more than sufficient for 2 or 3 mugs and this is certainly the best we have had to date. It’s a nice looking kettle and it brings the water to the boil quite quickly. Very pleased with the product and the 2 year warranty.

My wife and i bought this kettle as a replacement for a old product. It’s small but just right for the two of us. We have now purchased the same product for my mother-in-law, who found the small size and lightweight construction to be easier for her to handle.

Like the size & shape, tho’ a bit noisy when active & gets a bit hot on handle near body.

Good handle grip and great on/ off switch on top of handle. It is so much betterthan the normal flip switch usually placed below the handle (my last on broke)you might be surprised at the size. It is not a large kettle, but more than adequate to do the job. Excellent value for money and would recommend.

It was what i was looking for,very pleased, it is light which is what i needed for my bad hands.

Works and looks like expected. It does get hot after boiling so one needs to be careful not to burn, something that is manageable. Overall very good value for money.

It’s fine so far but i don’t like the position of water level indicator you can’t see it whilst you are filling kettle under tap.

This was absolutely perfect, just what i was looking for. Half the weight of my old kettle which was just getting too heavy for me to lift with my arthritis. Excellent value for money especially as it comes with a two year guarantee. Would definitely recommend it.

Not easy to find good looking small kettles, but this one ticks all the boxes. Looks nice an chunky and well made, and doesn’t ‘roar’ like a lot of so-called quiet kettles. Plus the on/ff switch is at the top of the handle, which is much more convenient, and avoids the risk of it being switched on accidentally (by a plate or other kitchen-top utensil) as is the case with kettles with a lever switch at the bottom. I can never understand why 95% of kettles have the switch at the bottom – unless it’s cheaper to manufacture them in this way.

The first one lasted for years and i saw no reason to buy a different one this time. I particularly like the proper switch on the top. It is relatively light but feels solid and looks great.

Couple that want small quick to heat up kettle. Looks good works well and well built.

Great kettle, i am on my own and find due too poor health larger ones are difficult to lift.

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars i cannot recommend this kettle and suggest not to buy this item
    I am in the process of trying to get amazon to recognize british law of a 6 month returns policy, this kettle as with others have written the lid has fallen off and cannot be put back on, this is really a very badly made product, speaking as an engineer. As other have said the steam leaks out from handle and can give severe burn, i cannot recommend this kettle and suggest not to buy this item.

    It was delivered yesterday and it’s going back tomorrow. Every time you pour water out the lid falls off . I’m sure it’s broken but i can’t see anything wrong. Surely it wasn’t designed for that to happen ?. Another annoying thing is the window that lets you see the water level is behind the handle where you can’t see it. One good thing about amazon is their returns system, i can’t fault ’em.

  5. 3.0 out of 5 stars not a great buy, feels poor quality and not a product ...

    Handle really does get hot, and condensation forms on the lid – feels cheap. Also manufacturer recommends filling through the spout, but it is small and this is awkward. All told, not a great buy, feels poor quality and not a product for everyday use. I am returning it immediately.
