Smaller Size, Bigger Performance
The Tefal Express Compact GV7096 steam generator is Tefal's most compact steam generator, making storage less of a hassle. Furthermore, equipped with Tefal's unique Ultraglide ceramic soleplate, this iron offers unrivalled glideability, superior scratch resistance, easy cleaning and optimum steam diffusion. Thanks to its 5 bar high pressure, the GV7096 offers 120g/minute continuous and variable steam. And with only a two minute heat-up time, it offers almost immediate use.
Easy Maintenance with anti-scale
Like all Tefal's steam generators, the GV7096 features the unique anti-calc collector to keep the appliance scale-free. The water across much of the UK is very hard, and scale can build up and affect the performance of appliances. To combat the problem, Tefal has developed technology which changes the scale inside the boiler unit of the steam generator into a solid form, which is collected at the side of the generator for easy disposal.
Similarly, the Express Compact is equipped with a 1.6 litre water tank which is continuous fill, so the steam generator does not have to be turned off before refilling. The three-metre cord gives you plenty of manoeuvrability, and tucks away into a compartment when the ironing is done for easy and tidy storage.
Ultraglide Ceramic soleplate for unrivalled glideability
As previously mentioned, the GV7096 features Tefal’s Ultraglide ceramic soleplate, which offers unrivalled glideability, superior scratch resistance and easy cleaning. The active lines in the soleplate ensure excellent heat distribution and reduced surface resistance.
The Compact also offers a vertical steam function, ideal for getting creases out of suits or other hanging garments and can also be used to de-crease curtains.
Safety & Portability
The GV7096 is equipped with Tefal’s Easycord system, which prevents the cord from rucking up and keeps it away from your hands and the clothes while ironing. It also features a lock system, so you can safely carry the appliance by the handle with one hand. The Express Compact has a 12-month warranty, supported by strong domestic guarantees and after sales service.
About Steam Generators
A steam generator is the most powerful type of ironing solution available. The appliances work by generating steam in a separate boiler unit and pumping it through the iron's soleplate into the clothes. The extra pressurised steam means steam generators cut ironing time in half compared to conventional steam irons, and produces a fantastic crease-free finish. The pressure is measured in bars, the higher the pressure, the deeper the steam penetrates into the fabric, leading to a better result. The steam generator's steam output is indicated in grams per minute (g/min), so the higher the output, the more steam is generated.
Tefal: World No. 1 in Steam Generators
Tefal owes its origins to Frenchman Marc Grégoire, an engineer and keen fisherman. Monsieur Grégoire wanted the reel on his rod to run more smoothly, and experimented in the 1950s to see if a non-stick coating would work. It did, but it was his wife Collette who made the real breakthrough, suggesting the coating would be more useful in making cookware easier to use and clean. Now, Tefal is the number one name in non-stick products and small appliances, operating in more than 120 countries. Tefal remains committed to making household tasks easier and cooking results better, through a constant flow of new ideas, technology and innovation. Examples of that cutting-edge innovation can be seen in the ActiFry, the AirBake baking range and Tefal's unique Thermo Spot, which ensures your pans are always the perfect temperature to start cooking.
