Tesco IR11 Value Iron
Advantages: Cheap and it works just like it ought to, doesn't take up much room in the cupboard.
Disadvantages: Might take longer to iron large quantities, doesn't stay stood up safely.
I bought this iron because it was cheap and I'm already a uni student and don't want to turn myself into a cliche (starving uni student joke).
This iron doesn't really stand up on it's own, it balances, but not steadily enough that I'd leave it propped up on the board while waiting for it to cool down. Instead, when I've finished using it, I quickly run the the metal plate under cold water until it cools down enough to be put away, so it's a minor inconvenience at worst.
It works as well as your average iron, but is a little bit smaller like the one my family keeps in the caravan. The small size doesn't bother me, I only have a couple of items that need to be ironed and barely iron once a fortnight. However if you have a lot of ironing to do it might take you longer, however I have no idea how much longer it might take. It does have the added benefit that it fits into smaller gaps than the iron back home does.
Summary: A good little iron with few flaws.
