I would not advise anyone to buy a morpy richards iron after our experiences with the jet sream elite plus. We had one costing about GBP 200 for just over a year, it then broke. Morphy Richards replaced it, the second one broke after about 6 months use. In both cases the light indicates that a new filter is required. When one replaces the filter the machine still indicates that a new filter is required and wont produce steam.When the second one broke, Morphy Richards would not replace the iron because it was out of the 2 year warranty period. GBP 200 every two years is not a great track record for an iron in my view. Note the iron is good when it works.
I recently bought this iron from reading some good reviews. I was then recommended to buy this model as I have always owned a Morphy Richards iron before and have found them to be reliable and do a suitable job. I have been looking for an iron now for the last month and I finally got this iron and so decided to write a review on it for all you people interested in it!.
Ok so let me start with some good points:
1. The iron is a good quality iron, and is fairly easy to set up.
2. It heats up rapidly and irons fantastically without giving any problems such as iron marks etc.
3. It's lightweight and makes the chore so much easier!
4. It leaves no creases and flats out every little detail.
5. The water tank last forever! Until of course you have to refill it, i recently filled my water tank and it lasted me around a month before i had to finally refill it.
6. It is nicely built and therefore prevents water from leaking, and the iron scaling up.
Not much of a point but i can only think of one bad point!
1. The colour! If it only came in pink =P (am such a girly girl :D)
The iron is good quality, and has an excellent steam output which always makes my clothes nice and neat, which is always nice. The iron is brightly coloured and will attract lots of girls am sure, but if only it came in other colours! The morphy Richards 42288 iron has a long cord for ease of use.
The iron is great value for money, and I purchased mine at a bargain price of £110. The performance of the iron is fantastic although if it was made into a larger iron it would be nice. It is very large in storage wise.
Overall i would recommend this iron to people who are interested. Although some people might prefer to buy a much heavier and larger iron this iron wont be suitable for you as it lightweight and quite small. But as i am a small girl and quite fragile, i prefer something lighter and this was the perfect iron for me!.
Thanks For Reading =]
The Morphy Richards steam generator iron is useful for any person who wants ironing to become a less time consuming chore! I invested in it after my iron broke. A family member had this iron, and after testing it, I was amazed how easy it got rid of creases!
The iron has a removable limescale filter. When it needs replacing, a red light will flash alerting you that the current limescale filter is full.
The iron itself has the usual dial for clothes that require different heat settings. On the 'steam generator' (bottom piece), there is a button to switch the iron off and on, along with 3 options for different powers. If you are prone to wondering off and forgetting the iron is still switched on, this iron has an automatic switch-off (such a clever gadget).
Because the actual iron has no water in it (this is stored in the removable tank on the base), it is so light meaning it is ever more easier to use.
Overall, a great iron that will save you time. Highly recommended if you are prepared to pay out for it.
I have had this iron now for only a couple of months, but would never go back to a normal iron again. I had never had a steam generator iron before, but got this on a great offer, and haven't looked back since.
As a good example, I have some supposedly 'easy iron' bedding, which I HATE ironing. I used to spend an hour easily, with lots of effort, and still all the creases weren't out. With this, it's totally different. The iron just glides over - no pressure whatsoever from me - and the creases literally drop out before your eyes. It really IS amazing.
It has a very small water section in the iron itself in case you want to manually spray some out, but I have never needed to. I just fill up the vast vat of water that is in the iron's base unit, and use the steam feature. You have to press the button under the handle to get the steam out - which I thought would be annoying to continually do - but it isn't, it is very easy to press and you hardly notice you're doing it.
It is rather bulky to store, and awkward to get out - and I do find that it's difficult to know what to do with the base unit as I only have a normal ironing board. Other than that though I can't fault it, it is brilliant.
