This is what my girlfriend tells me when she does the ironing, she would probably kill me for writing that. I do actually do the ironing about once a month and find that the Morphy Richards is probably one of the best makes you could get for an iron.
To be honest I can't really comment on the looks of an iron that much as they pretty much all look the same. This one does have a pretty nice purple colour which does make it look nice. It has a smooth easy grip handle which looks pretty good. Other than that I think all irons look the same so you can't really go wrong with this one.
The actual job of the iron is to smooth out the creases in your clothes which this iron does alright. There is a wheel on the iron that you press to choose what type of clothes you are ironing as this increases the amount of steam and heat needed for particular clothes. I find that it does get rid of creases with relative ease however one thing I don't like is that some water does manage to come out which can get quite irritating. It has a 400ml water tank in it which isn't too bad, it just means that you can iron a little bit longer than usual.
You can buy the Morphy Richards iron online for about £30. There are better quality irons out there for more money for but for anyone just wanting a decent iron for a good price then you can't go wrong with this.
As my other Morphy Richards iron was looking a little tired and frustrated it was time to get another. I wanted to stick with the same make as I have been extreamly pleased with my old Morphy Richards Iron. When I saw this model it filled me with confidence in the knowledge that i was getting pretty much like for like but without alot of price increase. It runs soomthly over any fabric (even jeans), the water fill is very easy to use. The steam funcion and tempreture dial is just in an idel location incase you need to turn the tempreture down quickly or produce some steam for the tricky creases in clothes we all get from time to time. Great colour too. Makes easier work of ironing and and takes less time, making more time for me. Value for money all the way and would be definalty recommening this iron to all my friends and family.
We have had Morphy Richards irons in the past so when it came time to replace our old Morphy Richards we pretty much wanted the same one as we had had before as we were always pleased with it, the plate had just become a bit ruined by some baked on dirt we could't get off and it kept marking my husbands work shirts now and again so we knew it was time to change it. We thought we had purchased pretty much the same one from Currys as it looked exactly the same but upon getting it home we noticed it had some upgrades to it that would be a welcome addition to this iron.
As the name suggests this Morphy Richards iron has a comfort grip handle and I would have to agree, it is definitely very comfortable to hold which does make a lot of difference when you have ironing to do for four people including husbands work shirts, baby clothes etc etc. The handle is attached to the iron all the way across so you can grip it anywhere you wish but in the handle you will find some black plastic inlay that is softish and is what makes this handle nice to grip and does make it easier to glide the iron rather than having to grip onto hard plastic.
I think the best feature about this iron is probably the steam function on it. Using steam is a great way of getting creases out of clothes, especially my husbands work shirts which really need to be clean and crisp and professional. The steam button is located at the front of the iron and it has a little steam icon picture on it which helps you to differentiate between this and just the water button which is also a feature on this iron. The steam button is easy to depress and as soon as you have done it you will get a 170g shot of steam. This is an initial shot of steam which starts you off well and helps the iron to really warm up and get going and then once you are using it and have started to iron there is a constant 40g of steam that, according to the paperwork, will relax fibres and make it easier for the creases to come out. I am definitely pleased with the nice crisp results I get with I have to say minimum effort on my part. With some irons you really have to press hard to get the creases out. I find this is sometimes the case if the iron is getting old so maybe because this is fairly new is some of the reason why it works so well also.
The bottom of this iron is made out of something called a Diamond soleplate which is meant to be very smooth and nice to iron with. Well, I definitely agree with that. I find this iron really smooth to iron with and like I've said above I do not need to press really hard to get the creases out so it makes ironing with this particular iron very easy and comfortable. There is a water tank in this iron, obviously as that is where you get the steam and also the water spray from. Now, I always recommend using proper ironing water that you can buy separately as this not only adds a nice smell to your clothes, it also stops limescale building up inside your iron which will eventually cause it to stop working. However, this iron also has a built-in anti-scale system which is meant to purify the water in the tank which in turn will keep the iron working at optimum performance for longer. I've only had this iron for a while but so far it is working perfectly and I hope it continues to stay that way.
The iron has a disc that you turn that has different settings you can iron on such as silk, nylon, wool, etc. So far I am very pleased with this iron and am happy to recommend it. It cost me £35 and can be purchased from Curry for other home stores.
