      Disadvantages

      Cuts my ironing time in half

      Background

      Let me start by saying that I hate ironing with a passion. With that in mind it is important to me that I have an iron that makes it as easy as possible to get through. I have had cheap irons before and suffered the consequences. As a result I was sceptical when I was given this one, but it has actually been a godsend.

      Look & feel

      The iron is a decent weight with (how sad is this) quite stylish lines in white and grey. It has a rubberised handle that is easy and comfortable to grip, and a 2.4 metre cable that is long enough to iron with ease.
      he base plate is stainless steel with 400 micro holes to distribute steam easily across the whole base plate. The reservoir holds 300ml of water and is easily filled from the supplied jug. The main temperature control is as usual under the handle, along with a self clean button to flush the system. On top of the handle are the usual steam shot and water shot buttons, together with a control to set the amount of steam or water to be used.

      In use

      This iron makes short work of any ironing! It is a decent weight, yet glides perfectly on any fabric. It's output of over 3000 watts makes short work of creases. The temperature set by the dial automatically sets the downward steam for the fabric (which works really well and prevents damage to clothes), this can be boosted for stubborn creases via the buttons on top of the handle. The dial settings mean that I have been able to iron even delicate fabrics comfortably - yet at the other end of the spectrum it manages denim just as well.

      Further thoughts

      This is the best iron I have used, period. It is reliable and has shaved probably 50% off my ironing time - this is important, as let me reiterate, - I hate ironing! It has been in use for over 2 years now with absolutely no problems. If this ever breaks, it will be a real loss, especially as it seems to be out of stock at the moment (hence I am not able to confirm price)

      Heartily recommended!
