Tesco IR11 Value Iron
I bought this recently as I needed a cheap replacement iron to keep at the caravan as after 8 years of use ours had broken (suppose I cant complain really!)
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on one as we are only there at the weekends and don't have many things to iron so I was happy when I saw this in my local tesco store.
The iron was less than £10 which I thought was great. It was still quite powerful with power of 1200kw so I thought id give it a whirl.
I wasn't expecting much really but was quite impressed when I first opened the iron as it didn't look cheap and nasty as I had expected for the price. The iron is fairly basic the one I got was blue and white.
The iron has different settings which I thought was good and wasn't really expecting for such a cheap iron. It can therefore iron a variety of different fabrics from silk to cotton. It has a section where you can pour water in and also a steam function which is great for those hard to iron fabrics.
I have been impressed by how easy to use the iron is and it doesn't snag on your clothes at all it glides over them really nicely. The iron heats up really quickly so you can use it almost straight away after switching it on.
I am really impressed with the iron it has been great so far I wouldn't have noticed any real difference in performance from the more expensive one I have at home. It gets creases out really well and is gentle on the more delicate fabrics.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap iron that does a good job.
Summary: great cheap iron
