Anne, East Yorkshire Frequent ironer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic steam. Produces excellent results without too much effort.
Bad points:
A bit heavy. Water reservoir is huge but still needs filling quite frequently. Difficult to see when reservoir is full because you're looking through purple plastic!

Manufacturer's Description

Ironing is less of a chore with the Breville VIN212 steam iron. With a very powerful 2400 watts (W), it produces more steam and has a reduced heat-up time compared to lesser watt models helping you plough through your pile of laundry very quickly and efficiently. The job is made even easier thanks to the VIN212’s ceramic coated soleplate which provides an incredibly smooth glide through the creased and crumpled clothes so there’s no need to work up a sweat when tackling the chore.

This ceramic content affects how well the heat distributes throughout the soleplate, keeping it at the temperature selected and even throughout with no unwanted hot spots that could damage your clothes. It creates an easy and effortless glide during ironing with no snagging and it ensures long-life, protecting the soleplate against scratching and surface damage. The soleplate is also larger than the industry standard helping you cover a greater surface area per stroke to save time and effort.

A fundamental principle of ironing is the more steam, the better and so the higher the steam ratings of the iron, the better it will be to use. An iron’s steam ratings determine how easy it will be to use, how effective and efficient it is and therefore how much time you can save to do other, more exciting things with your time.

The VIN212 has a top-of-the-range 50 grams (g) of constant steam, also known as steam per minute, which is the amount of steam generated by the iron when in normal use. In addition to this, there is also a shot of steam, specifically a powerful 110g for the VIN212. This works as an extra boost to help remove those stubborn creases that refuse to budge or give that added crispness when creating creases on trousers. Completing the trio of essential steam features is the vertical steam function. This allows the iron to be used vertically to steam hanging clothes such as dresses or suits or household fabrics such as curtains, so however difficult, delicate or unwieldy the item, it can be thoroughly and properly ironed with ease.
