I have been testing a few steam generator irons and I have been using my trusty 5 star reviewed Morphy Richards 42223 Steam Generator Iron as the benchmark. For a while I didn't find anything that really beat it in terms of performance and Value for money. One that finally beat it was the Philips GC9236/02 it is a superb iron, but at the time of review, a painful £240. This one currently beats that price by £40 and is probably the all-round winner for me.

The physical unit:
All steam generators are bulky and a lot heavier than standard steam irons and this one is no exception. The bulk and weight can upset the balance of an ironing board so you do need to be a little more cautious especially if you move the board around. On that note, you will need an ironing board that is compatible with steam generator irons (they tend to have large wide plates where the base sits). The base unit has silicone pads for the iron to rest on and when unattended there is a plastic arm that lifts over and locks the iron firmly in place. The iron handle then acts as the handle to lift the whole unit. Of all the steam generator irons I have tried, this one is the most stable when sat on its heel on a padded ironing board.

Filling and de-scaling:
This is so simple, no measuring jugs or funnels required, just pull out the water tank and fill it up under a running tap. The tank will take a whopping 1.8 lts of tap water and can be refilled at any time without turning off the iron.

My new Tefal Pro Express arrived today and oh boy was it a workhorse! I had an overloaded basket of ironing awaiting it's arrival and I mean overloaded and, true to its word, the Tefal it didn't disappoint.

To be honest, I have never scrimped on irons but had never had a steam generator before. However, after grumbling publicly about how much I hate ironing, I decided to take the plunge when a friend on Facebook recommended I get one. I whizzed through my basket which included baby clothes, older children's clothes, a few dresses and skirts, hubby's shirts and several pairs of jeans. Not one item was a disappointment. In fact, after I finished I even went in search of more ironing much to the amusement of my family!!

This iron is powerful, very intuitive, quiet and very, very effective. I'll point out now that I did a LOT of research before deciding upon this particular iron. Initially I intended buying Bosch but the poor views put me off. I like Philips too as I fancied a one temp for all but again some reviews put me off - I had a lovely Philips iron in the past and although it looked sleek it didn't last long before cracking and leaking even though it was used only occasionally (did I mention I used to hate ironing!) Finally, what really swung it for me was the fact my current iron is also a Tefal and that, plus the many positive reviews for this model made me order it. Although comparatively expensive, I am so pleased I spent more than I'd intended because today's workload was a revelation.

To say I enjoyed ironing today would be an understatement - I was blissful as I worked away. :) Happy ironing is guaranteed and before you ask, no, I haven't been paid for this review! :D

Short version: A good steam generator like this one irons things much better and much more quickly, and you waste less time refilling or spraying. This is a better model with good pressure and simple controls, and works very well.

This is my first steam generator and they're not cheap, so I did my research and I'm happy with my choice.
I thought it might be a bit much to spend for someone who only really irons for one, but the time makes it worth it.
You will find it really easy to iron many things at once (ironing is quicker and you won't need to keep refilling it), which saves time in the long run.
Here are some practical but not necessarily technical things that are important in my opinion:

- Low is good for silk or things you're afraid of burning and works nicely. Medium/Normal is fine for most things, like shirts, some sweaters, trousers. High is good for jeans, linen and some cotton.
- Steam comes out only while the trigger is pressed (very easy to do, part of a normal grip). One review for another iron complained about this, but I would complain if it was always on, because that's highly wasteful, since about a quarter of ironing time ising spent with the iron sat on the ironing board as you move the item of clothing.
- I've really never needed the extra pressure, but it's definitely there if you do, maybe for awkward creases.
- The tank is easy to remove and fill and is short enough to be filled from a bathroom sink (unlike some irons).
- There is room to tuck both cable away into the iron, separately.
- The iron locks into the unit securely (no need to wait for it to cool) and that's how you move it (iron handle). It's quite heavy, especially if the tank is full. But I can still move it with one hand.
