Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a very good iron. It deals easily with creases even on stubborn linen. This is due to it being a bit heavier that other irons but also because it has a very effective steam option. The water chamber is large so minimises refilling. The ergonomics of the iron are good so it feels nice to use and not as much of a chore as ironing normally is. I highly recommend this product.
Bad points:
The only thing that would improve this iron is an auto-shutoff. The next model up has this feature but the price difference was quite significant so hard to justify in my opinion.

Good points:
Very effective steam delivery. Great for quickly dealing with creases !
Bad points:

Water in the iron gets used up fairly quickly but very easy to top-up and worth it for the ease of ironing.

light, easy to use and end result is very good

find it a bit awkward to fill with water as beaker, when rested on filling area, tends to slip off.
