Cut your ironing time in half!

I got this Iron for £20 through a 'word of mouth' company called BzzAgent. So I get to keep the iron and spread the word of what I think of it.
This Iron retails at around £99.95, it can be bought from places like Tesco, John Lewis and Currys. This Iron is a pressurised steam generator, so it's very powerful and the steam gets straight into the creases and is not absorbed by air. I was really surprised how quick I got through my ironing. You can use the iron vertically as well which is very handy, especially with shirts, once I've ironed them normally I put them on a coat hanger and give them a blast which makes sure there is no creases at all.
Once you have filled the tank with water (1 litre tank) and switched it on, the iron is ready to use in two minutes. The steal trigger lock lets you have continuous steam without having to press the trigger all the time. You can also refill the tank as you iron.
You have to clean the iron every 10 goes, but this is very easy, you just fill it with water, shake it about and empty the water out.
It has a nonstick ceramic soleplate and has a unique steam tip to get at corners.
There is a cable tidy for the 2 metre cable. It's quite big and a little noisy, nothing that bad though, I can still watch tv!
I would definately recommend this iron, I'll never be going back to a non pressurised steam iron! Especially as it says it can cut your ironing time in half!
