Advantages: Simple, light and not tiring to use
Disadvantages: Slighty poor build quality in places
This iron is very good for its relativity low price compared to other similar ones in the range.
The iron itself is light and very nimble, while it doesn't have a high tech coating to the under side of the sole plate its light enough not to need it. The iron itself is not made of the great of materials they are not cheap just the edges are a bit rough which smooth off quickly through normal use.
The iron heats up quickly and the steam takes a few seconds longer to get going from cold but its normally less than a few minutes.
Steam takes a second to come through from pressing the button to coming up and likewise carries on for a while after releasing the button.
The water tank is easy to remove and refill, it takes a lot of water (think 3-4 times more than the average iron) so you can easily do several loads without refilling.
There is a replaceable water filter cartridge in the water tank and works well, only had to replace it once so far but that depends on what your water is like in the area.
The power cord is quite short so you will need a lead unless your standing on top of the plug, its about twice the height of a ironing board setup. It uses very little power when just idling so you can take your time.
On the body of the tank it has a iron holder and a master power switch, annoyingly the body of the tank is too big for most ironing boards so it wobbles about on some unless its flat area.
Summary: Worth its low price for a steam genertor iron
