About your IG2031 microwave
How it works
A conventional oven heats food very slowly from the outside in, but a microwave oven uses high-powered radio waves to cook food more evenly.
Microwave ovens are very quick and efficient because they channel heat energy directly to the molecules (tiny particles) inside food.
In a Solo Microwave, you can use heat resistant glass, heat resistant ceramics, microwave safe plastics and kitchen paper. It is not recommended to use non-heat resistant glass, metal trays, aluminium foil, metal racks, foil containers.
Top of range operation
This IG2031 Digital Microwave has a stylish and efficient design which means you get high performance expected of all Igenix products. A 245 mm turntable means this microwave can accommodate an even larger range of containers, dishes, bowls and plates. With 4 clearly labelled buttons, this microwave is also an ideal choice for users of any age. With a 60 minute timer, the variety of foods you can cook in this microwave is enormous and all you need to do is simply turn the dial to your desired time and let the microwave cook your favourite meals in a flash.
With 5 power levels to choose from you can ensure all your food is cooked or re-heated to the optimum temperature. The microwave will automatically start cooking after the power level and time has been set.
You can defrost your food by weight and the microwave selects the ideal defrost time or if you trust your own judgement, you can select the time manually.
Auto cook menus
- The IG2031 also features 12 pre-programmed auto cook menus including reheat, vegetable, fish, meat, pasta, potato, pizza and soup. This allows you to cook all of your favourite food to perfection at the push of a button.

To begin with, I much prefer a digital microwave over a manual one; sometimes you just want thirty seconds, a level of precision which is difficult for the latter. With the Igenix it's easy to select ten-second increments and be sure that's how long it will operate for.
Like most tech, it takes a little bit of getting used to but once you've got the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward: select your power setting, then turn the dial for the time, press start. There are other functions but, frankly, we're unlikely to ever use them; you can choose a menu (e.g. meat) item using the rotary dial, selecting the item weight, you then press start. I prefer to experiment myself, finding the best combination of power and time for a particular item. That said, I rarely cook in the mic, some veg maybe, but mostly I use it for defrosting or reheating.
It is on the smaller side and just takes a round dinner plate, though the octagonal ones from my mother-in-law clank on the side, as the turntable spins. You won't be defrosting whole chickens in here.
It's a good looking item, with slightly 'retro' styling, perhaps echoing more expensive brands.
If you're just starting out or require a microwave for occasional use, then you won't go far wrong with this. It is smaller and lower powered than some but has the advantage of being more functional than many more expensive microwaves.
The energy rating runs from A down to E- at the A end of the scale things take longer to cook than at the E end of the scale this is because more microwaves will be hitting the food for a given unit of time. What this means to this microwave is that it heats your food up quickly - very quickly.
The microwave is easy to use as has some handy pre- programmed “auto cook” menus which cover the most common use of a microwave.
It also has a safety lock to help keep curious little ones out of it and a clock- all nice features to have and all of which come in handy in my home!
It is a little on the small size inside and very large or tall items (dinner plates and tall jugs) will not fit in there. However the up side to this is that it is not a huge appliance that will hog all the work top space and so is good for smaller kitchens.
The instruction book is easy to follow and a good guide to the machine, guiding you through its functions and giving general advice.
All in all this is a good machine for basic domestic use.
The LED display has twelve pre-programmed auto cook menus, which makes cooking basic foods very simple everything from warming up a cut of tea to making popcorn or cooking rice is listed. There is also a child safety lock option, to stop children opening the microwave door. There is also a clock setting, a ‘quick start’ option and you can set the cooking time from any time from ten seconds to one hour. You can also adjust the amount of power you want to use and also do multi stage cooking – for example, if you want to defrost and then cook meat. However, the instruction book has all the details, but there is a good range of functions.
I like the stylish look of the microwave, with the sturdy chrome handle. The microwave is a little smaller than my old one – it will hold a standard size dinner plate, but I also have some larger plates which will not fit inside. It will, though, cook, defrost and re-heat; and I mostly use microwaves for defrosting or re-heating, it is fine for my needs. It does not take up much room and so is ideal for a smaller kitchen. This looks nice, has lots of useful pre-programmed settings and is easy to use. If you are looking for a nice, standard microwave, this will work well.
I may have been influenced in my enthusiasm for this little model by the fact that the first thing it showed me was that my old big-name microwave - which is not "old-old" by any means, and was five times the price of this one - no longer cuts the mustard. I'd been disappointed with the quality of the supermarket's frozen baked potatoes; but the 700w Igenix produced the absolute perfect result in 5 minutes, it simply could not have been improved upon - whereas my "old" 1,000watt model has been taking up to 7 minutes to do the same job, and then turning part of the skin into leather. (One hates to throw things away that are still working, but, in view of this experience... )
This is not the style of Microwave I prefer - it sports deep menus, multi-purpose buttons, multiple button presses, a data wheel and an "enter" button, much like some electronic musical instruments, whereas I like to have a button for everything. Or more usually, two buttons. But once you start using it, everything falls into place, and is easily remembered (important for such as me; in some ways there are advantages in having only a few buttons). All the versatility you could ever require is there; and, of course, it has the usual saving grace of an "instant start" button which cooks on full power for one minute - and a further 10 seconds with every additional press.
It's very light, so light that if you try to open the door with one hand, you will drag it towards you. And whatever you do, don't lose the manual before you've started to use it, as I did.Read more ›
