Barbara, Eye

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The constant steam is a revelation - I certainly wouldn't go back to an ordinary steam iron. The setting-up and operating of the machine is very simple.
Bad points:
A bit noisy when priming.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is really easy to iron linen, and it has cut down my ironing time on the whole.
Bad points:
The storage of the leads is not very good, wrapped around the unit with the two plastic holders at each side. These seem flimsy.

Irons really well, isn't as noisy as i had thought it would be, easy to fill the water tank.

Other reviews said the water tank last 3 hours, don't know what I'm doing wrong then but I only get an hour if I'm lucky and not using team all the time which I usually am as I thought that was the whole point!
