Morphy Richards 40754 Comfigrip
Advantages: Nice to hold, steam
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.†††
