Brabantia Titan Ironing Board Large Size
When I moved house and region a few years ago my trusty old ironing board did not survive the journey, so once we were settled into our new house and especially once we realised the creases were not going to just drop out of all the curtains a priority became buying a new ironing board. We selected this one from the Argos catalogue and trundled off to the nearest town to buy and collect the ironing board. Packaged in a simple cardboard outer, with minimal packaging and cable tied for transit the board stands about on its end.
Featuring a simple lever and slide mechanism to set up and down the board can be set to the desired height quickly and easily. It is reassuringly sold once set up and the iron cradle is nice and easy to use.
Some items I iron are quite heavy and I need to press quite hard to set creases in some curtains for example, the board is robust and stands steady allowing me to do this. The legs are tubular steel and capped with non-slip plastic booties that I have used on a variety of surfaces and the ironing board does not slip or slide like some do. The booties are still in place and intact after quite a few years of use and I remember my old board had lost them off of one end after much less use.
To put away, I simply lift the lever and apply a little leaning into the board to collapse it, it is easy to manoeuvre as it stays closed much better than some boards I have owned and used.
The cover did wear fairly quickly, but I have replaced it with the Brabantia Heavy Duty version and this has been going strong for about 8 years now.
The colour of the visible metalwork is cream, so it does go with any decor and the covers are available in different colours, patterns and strengths.
Conclusion & Stars:
My Brabantia Ironing Board makes a chore a little more pleasurable!
I recommend the Brabantia Titan Ironing Board to anyone requiring a new board and is definitely worth the little extra for a long lasting robust piece of essential household kit.
Price & Availability:
I think I paid around £38.00 for mine when it was new but that was quite a few years ago now. Brabantia is stocked by John Lewis, Argos and other good retailers. I believe these are currently priced at around £69.00 from Amazon.
