Advantages: makes clothes look nice and new
Disadvantages: just having to iron
The only thing I have to say about ironing is that I hate it. It's the one chore I dread doing but since I bought this new iron a few months ago it hasn't seemed as bad.
Either it's the new iron that works better than the old one I had or it's because the last of my children have left home and taken their ironing with them so I don't have as much to do. I think it's the latter.
This Morphy Richards 40739 cost me £45 at Comet where I bought it at the store for cash and took it home the same day instead of getting it off the internet, but you can also get them online at Amazon for around the same price, but you have to pay for postage and packaging.
I love the colour of this iron as blue is my favoutrite colour and this one is a nice aqua marine like in the picture above. You can get them in lots of different colours from white, blue, purple and lilac. I have no idea why they have made them all in these nice bright girlie colours as I'm sure men iron too.
The design is good as it has a nice tapered front which goes to a point, this is great for getting in awkward places when ironing like inside the tops of shirt sleeves or tops. It smooths the material as you iron giving it a nice new looking end result with no creases which is good for if you have to wear the iten of clothing for an interview or work. It also has a stainless steel soleplate and no-drip system.
The iron comes with the plug attached already which is good for me as I hate having to wire things up before I can use them. Heat this up with water in before using then you can use the steam function for stuborn creases.
It has a non drip system so you wont get the material wet and you can fill it at the top of the iron before using.
There are different settings for the heat on a wheel underneath the handle and the settings can be altered to suit whatever material you are ironing, delicater and wool settings are also available.
This isn't a really heavy iron and it holds about 420ml of water which is enough for any average size amount of ironing. It has a steam shot that can be directed at the material your ironing or a full steam feature for using if your doing delicate things.
I like this iron as its easy to use, does the job I hate and is affordable.
Don't forget to put the iron out of the way of children and pets when you ahve finished using it as it does take a little while to cool down.
Summary: good value for money
