I bought the Russell Hobbs 2000 earlier this year, and whilst there are a number of good aspects about this iron, its not one I'd recommend nor buy again in the future.
Firstly, the positives. Its a very lightweight iron, so easy to use and manoeuvre. Even for the most amateur of 'ironers' like myself, this iron doesn't make the chore even more difficult. It has a large capacity water tank - 330ml, therefore doesn't need to be refilled every five minutes. Plus, the tank is transparent, so its easy to see when the water is getting low.
Another positive is that it has a very powerful steam option, which is great for getting rid of those very stubborn creases and wrinkles. One slight problem I've noticed here, is that when you do steam the clothes, it does tend to deposit small traces of what I assume is calcium. So a good tip, before you steam, first give it a blast onto the ironing board cover to eliminate and risk of making a mess on your clothes.
The one major downside is that the ceramic soleplate has quickly become discoloured, and it seems impossible to now clean it. I have to be extremely careful when ironing anything light coloured, as the discolouration quickly transfers to the clothes. So often I'm ironing over a teacloth. Its a shame, because everything else about the Steam Glide iron is very good indeed.
