Some customer reviews of Russell Hobbs 14864 Steam Generator

Most helpful reviews

Sue, Southbourne, West Sussex Frequent ironer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The iron heats up very quickly and it's a real bonus being able to refill the tank at any time, although it is so large I don't have to do that very often. The iron itself is light and the handle is comfortable.
Bad points:
The steam pumping action does feel like slow response - I've had other steam generators where the steam is on/off immediately on pressing the button. It just takes some getting used to - like learning to use an electric hob after using gas!

Good points:
Digital display.
Water container can be refilled without removing it.
Bad points:
Filter appears to be a sealed unit, which will be more expensive than simply replacing the filter bag.
