This high performance iron is designed to tackle the most stubborn of creases with its high pressure and continuous steam features. The plates glide effortlessly over clothes, and has even heat distribution, easily cutting your ironing time down by half.
The iron itself heats up in 2 minutes and with such a large tank, I found that I never have to refill the iron up whilst tackling even the largest of piles. However, the model is designed so that if you do need to refill, you do not have to switch this off and wait for it to cool down before you can use it again.
I have very little storage so I love how the cord fits into a little compartment within the iron. A lot of irons I have had to replace simply because the cord has been damaged, so this adds to the durability of the design.
I was a little concerned by how bulky this seemed but is incredibly lightweight and so easy to maneuver. I also found with this design I do not suffer from blisters on my hands, like I have with some other models.
I think for the price this is a great investment and I would highly recommend.
