I have had this iron for a good few years now and its still as amazing as the day i bought it. The power is just fantastic and i have had many irons but they dont come close to this. can anyone tell me if this model has a new brother and is it as goodDonna (hampshire UK )
This iron has revolutionized my life!! I purchased this just over a yera ago and seriously don't know how I coped without it - especially when ironing suit trousers. It makes ironing just so much quicker and the results are just fantastic. It takes a little while to heat up when it has been filled to capacity, but the water lasts for a long time - I probably fill mine once a week and I iron at least every other day. Just this morning I was short ot time but had heaps to do so I set myself just 15 minutes to iron (after it had heated) in that time I ironed around 25 items - some are my young child's so they are quite small - but even so they results are great. One quick blast of steam and the item is done - many of my own items I don't even need to iron the back as it is so powerful.
It would be useful to have water quage or warning when it is about to run out as suddenly the steam stops and you have to wait for it to heat up again before you can use it. Also, you cannot refil straight way - you need to wait for it to cool before you can unscrew the water fill cap.
My Tefal pressing compact plus steam generating iron was bought for me as a gift. At first glance i thought how huge it looked and i wondered if i could be bothered to carry it from the utility to use it because it is quite large. However when i used it for the first time i knew that i would never use a conventional steam iron again. The steam generation of this iron is fantastic. it has a large tank and i can irin a super sized overflowing ironing basket full of clothes without the tank needing to be re filled. There is an extra shot of powerfull steam when i need it. great for those annoying creased jeans. I use the iron with the tank on the floor which i feel is the safest option. A great tip is always wait for the unit to cool before transporting it to its storage place, I failed to do this and dropped the hot iron on to my arm causing a nasty burn...All in all a great piece of kit !
