sheila, stockton on tees

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. Gets hard creases out. Only need to iron on one side for most items. Feels like a professional steam iron like the ones in the dry cleaners.
Bad points:
Bulky hard to store if you have limited space. Can take a while for steam to build up.
