    Having received this iron decided to give it a real test over three hours
    1: Easy to fill
    2: noise whilst heating the water is expected
    3: iron glides over shirts in a breeze whether thick cotton or lighter fabrics.
    4: No more dropping work shirts off at the cleaners.

    Great product and with the large discount was able to purchase at 199

    We bought this to replace a Bosch one that stopped working properly less than a year on. Had a Morphy Richards version before then that lasted about 6 years. This is bar by the easiest iron to use. Blasts through the ironing really quickly. Steam boost works really well. The iron itself is really lightweight, By far the best iron I’ve ever had – worth the extra investment if you have a family and constantly have ironing to do.

    I’ve had a Philips Perfect Care before so I knew what to expect. The iron performs perfectly well but while heating water to make steam (about every 30 seconds), the unit rattles at an unacceptable level. This is usually an expected rumble sound but on this one, a rattle too!

    Excellent, lightweight, effective steam iron. Water in tank lasts longer than I expected. Can power through ironing. Need a surface near ironing board to place the base. Need to rethink positioning items on board before you press steam jet, to avoid burning yourself.

    I had a Braun one before, to be fair it was 100 so couldn’t expect much of it
    I would say this makes my ironing go faster with less effect
    My only con is the water runs out too fast in the tank which didn’t with

    Pushed the boat out and spent more than I had intended but worth it. “It doesn’t take the chore out of ironing but makes it easier.” Quote from my wife. I’ve never used it myself as I’m hopeless and can’t be trusted running a bath so mixing water, electricity and heat in one vessel would Defford be a hospital job. I’m the type of bloke who would answer the iron if the phone rang.
