My first steam generator. Very happy with it. Does what it's supposed to and makes ironing a lot easier. Only comment would be about the descaling cartridge. The iron comes with two cartridges. After 3 months of use - 1-1.5 hrs ironing/week, the iron 'indicated' that the catridge needed replacing. Have replaced, but the catridges don't come cheap to replace. Around £10-14 each (Does anyone know of cheaper - can't see these available on Amazon?), so you need to factor this in when buying the iron (same would apply I assume to any other similar iron). The manufacturers could do with mentioning the replacement timescale in their information.
