I have since had to return this product for a replacement as it failed to steam and leaked everywhere, if it had functioned as it said on the box i am sure it would have been excellent.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It seemed to have a large water capacity. It also enables you to lock the steam button on for items such as heavy denim or linen which require steam to iron.
Bad points:
Trying to 'prime' the iron for use every time you filled up the water reservoir was painful. I spent upwards of 40minutes trying to get the steam working to no effect. I also found that I had to place the water reservoir on a tray as the amount of 'priming' I was doing meant the generator leaked lots of water. If this had been on the carpet, it would have made it very wet with the amount of water, so would not recommend this at all. also after reading that the filter would have to be changedf after a certain amount of hours ironing, meant this could become a very expensive product on a yearly basis.

Good points:
It does what it should do with very little effort.
Bad points:
Sometimes the steam doesn't come through right away and it takes a bit of coaxing, but once the steam is up away you go.

Design fault means it leaks water when in use of when water is left in the tank which you are supposed to be able to do.

Good points:
It did not work properly from day one and ceased up completely on the 4th time it was used, The method of getting steam from the tank to the iron by priming is difficult, not very safe and doe not last fro long. Eventually returned for a refund as model disontinued!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
