2 Reasons For for Choosing the Igenix IG7102

Better Kagoo Score

1.3L Smaller Water Tank Capacity

Cordless kettles are helpful because they are far easier to use and pour, without worrying about getting caught up in a power cable.

Not As Many Stockists

An automatic shut off system helps to safeguard in the case of a fault with the appliance, meaning the chance of an electrical fire is greatly reduced.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Brentwood KT1960BK

Bigger Water Tank Capacity

The Brentwood KT1960BK is a 1.8 electric kettle. That's 0.1L bigger than the Bodum Bistro (1l) and the Russell Hobbs 21473 (1.7L) and 1.4L bigger than the Igenix IG7102 and the Swan SK27010N (0.4L). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Brentwood KT1960BK has a boil-dry protection (as does the Bodum Bistro (1l)), whereas the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not have this feature. More ...

'Boil-dry protection' is a special system that stops the kettle from boiling if there isn't a minimum amount of water in it.

Running the kettle without any water in can damage the appliance and stop it from working. Boil-dry protection stops this from happening.

Filtering

The Brentwood KT1960BK supports filtering (as does the Bodum Bistro (1l)), whereas the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not support this feature. More ...

'Filtering' denotes whether the kettle has a special filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A filter on your kettle means that the water produced by the kettle is as fresh and pure as it can be.

360° Rotational Base

The Brentwood KT1960BK has a 360° rotational base (as does the Bodum Bistro (1l)), however the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not have this feature. More ...

A rotational base is one that allows the kettle to be put down at any angle, so there's not just one way that it fits with the base.

A rotational base is helpful, since it allows you to put the kettle back on the base from any angle or rotation, meaning you don't have to fight with the kettle to get it to dock with the base.

Cordless

The Brentwood KT1960BK is cordless, and so are the Bodum Bistro (1l) and the Russell Hobbs 21473, but the Igenix IG7102 and the Swan SK27010N are not. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the kettle has a power cord attached or not.

Cordless kettles are helpful because they are far easier to use and pour, without worrying about getting caught up in a power cable.

Cheaper by $6

The Brentwood KT1960BK is $6.49 cheaper than the Bodum Bistro (1l), $5.50 cheaper than the Russell Hobbs 21473 and $7.15 cheaper than the Swan SK27010N.

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 electric kettle.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Brentwood KT1960BK

Does Not Have an Adjustable Thermostat

The Brentwood KT1960BK does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Bodum Bistro (1l) and the Swan SK27010N), however the Igenix IG7102 and the Russell Hobbs 21473 do. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

This is useful if you don't need boiling water, and makes the kettle more versatile.

Worse Kagoo Score

Older by Seven Months

The Brentwood KT1960BK is seven months older than the Bodum Bistro (1l).

$23 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Bodum Bistro (1l)

Automatic Shut Off System

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has an automatic shut off system, and so does the Swan SK27010N, however the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7102 and the Russell Hobbs 21473 do not. More ...

'Auto Shut-Off System' denotes whether the kettle has a system to automatically shut off power in the event of a fault, to stop potential damage to the appliance.

An automatic shut off system helps to safeguard in the case of a fault with the appliance, meaning the chance of an electrical fire is greatly reduced.

Boil-Dry Protection

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has a boil-dry protection, and so does the Brentwood KT1960BK, but the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not. More ...

'Boil-dry protection' is a special system that stops the kettle from boiling if there isn't a minimum amount of water in it.

Running the kettle without any water in can damage the appliance and stop it from working. Boil-dry protection stops this from happening.

Filtering

The Bodum Bistro (1l) supports filtering, and so does the Brentwood KT1960BK, but the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not. More ...

'Filtering' denotes whether the kettle has a special filter to stop impurities being introduced to your drinking water.

A filter on your kettle means that the water produced by the kettle is as fresh and pure as it can be.

Keep Warm Function

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has a keep warm function, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK, the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not. More ...

A 'keep warm function' on a kettle serves to keep the water hot over a longer period of time.

This is useful if you're not planning on using the heated water immediately, or need access to hot water on the spot, and don't want to have to wait for it to heat up again.

360° Rotational Base

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has a 360° rotational base, and so does the Brentwood KT1960BK, whereas the Igenix IG7102, the Russell Hobbs 21473 and the Swan SK27010N do not. More ...

A rotational base is one that allows the kettle to be put down at any angle, so there's not just one way that it fits with the base.

A rotational base is helpful, since it allows you to put the kettle back on the base from any angle or rotation, meaning you don't have to fight with the kettle to get it to dock with the base.

Cordless

The Bodum Bistro (1l) is a cordless electric kettle (as are the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Russell Hobbs 21473), however the Igenix IG7102 and the Swan SK27010N are not. More ...

'Cordless' denotes whether the kettle has a power cord attached or not.

Cordless kettles are helpful because they are far easier to use and pour, without worrying about getting caught up in a power cable.

Seven Months Newer

The Bodum Bistro (1l) was released 20 months ago, but the Brentwood KT1960BK was released two years ago, the Igenix IG7102 was released three years ago, the Russell Hobbs 21473 was released three years ago and the Swan SK27010N was released five years ago

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Bodum Bistro (1l)

A Lot Smaller Water Tank Capacity

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has a water tank capacity of 1.1, whereas the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Russell Hobbs 21473 are both 1.7L electric kettles (0.6L bigger) and the Igenix IG7102 and the Swan SK27010N are both 0.4L electric kettles (0.7L smaller). More ...

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

Does Not Have an Adjustable Thermostat

The Bodum Bistro (1l) does not have an adjustable thermostat (As do the the Brentwood KT1960BK and the Swan SK27010N), whereas the Igenix IG7102 and the Russell Hobbs 21473 have this feature. More ...

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

This is useful if you don't need boiling water, and makes the kettle more versatile.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Bodum Bistro (1l) has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Igenix IG7102 scored 88, the Russell Hobbs 21473 scored 87 and the Swan SK27010N scored 88.

$6 More Expensive

The Bodum Bistro (1l) is more expensive than the Brentwood KT1960BK by $6 and more expensive than the Igenix IG7102 by $4.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the Bodum Bistro (1l), however 15 sellers sell the Brentwood KT1960BK and 3 retailers sell the Russell Hobbs 21473. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this electric kettle remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
