    Russell Hobbs 18651 Steamglide Iron

    Ironing. You either love it or hate it. But whichever camp you fall into, one thing is certain. The Steamglide Iron from Russell Hobbs makes easy work of a challenging task. Thanks to its streamlined stainless steel soleplate, clever functions such as a powerful vertical steam, a choice of 35 g continuous steam or a 90 g shot of steam, plus spray and burst features, you can get to grips with those creases in one go.

    Russell Hobbs has been designing household appliances over 60 years. So, it is little wonder the Steamglide iron incorporates features such as an easy fill 300 ml transparent water tank so you can check your water at a glance, an anti-drip function and a soft touch handle and dial to make ironing more comfortable.

    Although it has several functions, it’s a really easy appliance to use – whether you’re new to ironing or you have been in charge of the laundry basket for years, the Steamglide iron will not disappoint.

    Let’s Get Started

    Before you use your Steamglide for the first time, remove labels, stickers and packaging from the iron and soleplate. When you switch it on, don’t worry if it smokes a bit at first, this is normal for a new iron and it’ll stop as the element cures.

    Try it out on an old piece of cotton fabric, to clean the soleplate before ironing your clothes and press all the buttons a few times to try them out.

    Filling Up

    You may use the iron with tap-water, but if you live in a hard water area, you should use distilled water that is especially for use in irons. Before filling, make sure the iron is unplugged, the temperature control is at and the steam control is turned to S#2.

    Open the water inlet cover and fill the iron holding the soleplate level. Pour slowly, so that any air in the reservoir will escape and don’t exceed the maximum level.

    Steam Ironing

    Steam ironing is better for smoothing fabrics but it needs to be at a high temperature setting so that the water in the reservoir turns to steam. Set the temperature control to S or higher (#2). S = no steam, # = high steam (#2). Wait until the thermostat light goes out then start ironing.

    Vertical Steaming

    This is a better way to remove creases from hanging fabrics and clothing.

    Check that pockets, turn-ups and cuffs are empty and that there is enough water in the reservoir.

    Set the temperature control to max, set the steam control to S

    Hold the iron close to (but not touching) the fabric

    Press the # button so you can use the shot of steam function vertically

    It may need 2 or 3 presses to pump water through the system

    Leave 4 seconds between shots to let the temperature build up

    Self Clean

    To prevent scale building up, use the self clean function regularly, at least monthly in normal water areas, more often in hard water areas. You’ll need a basin or a large bowl to hand as this will catch the water coming out of the soleplate. Here’s what to do:

    Fill the reservoir to the max

    Turn the temperature control to max and turn the steam control to S

    Sit the iron on its heel and plus it in

    When the light has gone out, hold the iron over the basin or bowl, with the soleplate down

    Press the C and hold it down

    Gently move the iron to and fro, over the basin or bowl

    You’ll see the water and steam washing scale and dust through the soleplate and into the sink. When the reservoir is empty, release the C button, unplug the iron and sit it on its heel to cool.

    To give your iron a general clean, wipe its outer surfaces with a damp cloth. To remove spots from the soleplate, use a little vinegar – take care not to scratch it.

    After Use

    Turn the temperature control to and turn the steam control to S. Unplug the iron, lift the top of the water inlet cover to open it and turn the iron upside down over the sink to drain the water from the reservoir. Sit the iron on its heel and leave it to cool down completely. Always store the iron on its heel, to avoid corrosion and damage to the soleplate.

    Ironing Do’s and Don’t’

    The surfaces of the appliance will get hot. It may sound obvious, but don’t use your iron in a bathroom, near water or outdoors. And don’t iron clothing while it’s being worn. To avoid damaging the soleplate, avoid buttons, zips or any metal embellishments. It’s advisable to iron printed fabrics inside out so that any print isn’t damaged by the heat or sticks to the soleplate. Again, please check your garment labels – there is a handy guide with this appliance that tells you what the fabric symbols mean and at what temperature they should be ironed.

    If the instructions on the fabric label differ from the guide, follow the instructions on the label.

    It’s a good idea to start your ironing on the coolest setting and tackle the more delicate fabrics first. Sturdier clothing like jeans or any canvas items often need a higher temperature and sometimes a blast of steam.

    I would highly recommend this iron. I bought it as we were moving house and our boxes had'nt arrived with our iron yet and I needed something in the interim. I thought this was very reasonably priced (on sale) and saw the excellent reviews. It arrived very quickly. In fact this iron seems to work better than our more expensive one, which has in fact remained in its box :-). Very good product.

    Not a heavyweight iron, but does the job of a heavyweight. Whipped through a weeks ironing pile in no time. Does use quite a lot of water for a full ironing basket, but does a sterling job. I'm very pleased/

    Just to second the previous review, be aware that Russell Hobbs have now recalled this iron along with many others in the same and different ranges of theirs.

    Company response
    Russell Hobbs said:

    As part of our ongoing quality monitoring program, Russell Hobbs has identified an issue with a small number of our irons that in isolated cases carry a risk that the flex may fail.

    In light of this, Russell Hobbs has made the decision to recall the models in question.

    If you would like to find out if you have an affected iron, you should look on the underside of the heel of the iron, where you will find a rectangular shaped label featuring a five digit code.

    The only affected irons are those featuring the following model codes:

    15081, 18651, 18720, 18741, 18742, 18743, 19220, 19221, 19222, 19400, 19840, 20260, 20280, 20550-10, 20560-10

    If you have one of the models listed above, you also need to check the batch code.

    If the batch code starts with 045 through to 365 and ends with 12 or starts with 001 through to 195 and ends with 13, then you have an affected Iron.

    If you do have an affected iron, please stop using it immediately. Please telephone our customer service department on Freephone 0800 307 7616 or if you are calling from a mobile 0333 103 9663, for ROI queries please telephone 00353 1429 5140, who will advise you of how to return your iron for a replacement or full refund of the purchase price.

    We would like to thank you for your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience.

    No other Russell Hobbs products or irons outside of the above codes are affected by this recall.

    Nice simple iron for a great price - easy to use with no gimmicks or bells and whistles, but it irons great and is small.
