Halve Your Ironing Time with Tefal’s New Pro Express Range!
The Tefal Pro Express GV8431 steam generator is powerful enough to easily tackle the toughest of ironing jobs in half the time, offering high 5.5 bar steam pressure and 120g/min continuous steam. Designed to handle the most stubborn of creases, the Pro Express also boasts a 240g/min shot of steam. Steam is essential when ironing thick and stubborn garments, as it relaxes the fibres in the fabric, allowing you to easily iron over them – ensuring your clothes look great everyday.
Autoclean soleplate for long lasting performance
Tefal offer the best soleplates in the world and the Pro Express GV8431 is equipped with the Autoclean soleplate, which combines unbeatable glideability with long lasting performance. The unique Palladium Autoclean soleplate offers longer-lasting performance by destroying the fibres which can stick to the face of the iron and cause marks on your clothes, damaging the glideability of your iron. The system uses catalytic oxidation as the iron heats up to transform these fibres into gas and steam. This unique soleplate has also has been specially made with a built in anti-drip system and boasts extremely scratch resistant and hard wearing properties.
The raised lines running across the soleplate ensure excellent heat distribution and reduce surface area resistance for enhanced glideability. Furthermore, the Pro Express vertical steam function is ideal for getting creases out of suits or other hanging garments and can also be used to de-crease curtains.
Easy to Use - A Time Saver!
The Pro Express heats up in just 2 minutes, so it’s ready to use when you are ready to iron. Its large 1.8 litre removable water tank allows you to iron for up to three hours without having to refill it. If you would like to iron for longer than 3 hours, not to worry, for the GV8431 can be continuously refilled without having to switch it off – non-stop ironing! The three-metre cord gives you plenty of manoeuvrability, and conveniently tucks away into a compartment when the ironing is done.
Easy & hassle free maintenance with Tefal's Unique & Patented Anti-calc Collector!
Like all Tefal's steam generators, the Pro Express features the unique anti-calc collector to keep the appliance scale-free. As the water across much of the UK is very hard, scale can build up and affect the performance of appliances. To combat the problem, Tefal has developed patented technology which changes the properties of scale inside the boiler unit so it can be easily collected at the side of the generator for easy disposal. Furthermore, the steam generator has a corrosion-free boiler, ensuring your appliance lasts longer!
With the Anti-calc collector, maintaining your steam generator is as easy as 1, 2, 3 – 1. Remove the collector; 2. Rinse it under the tap, and 3. Place it back into the appliance!
Variable Steam & Temperature Settings – Perfect Results Even on the Most Difficult Fabrics!
Tefal steam generators are equipped with a variable steam dial which allows you to regulate the amount of steam you use while ironing. This function, in conjunction with the soleplate temperature setting, allows you to obtain the perfect ironing settings for all of your garments. Having variable temperature settings for your iron is extremely important, as most fabrics have different ideal temperatures at which they should be ironed for optimal results (so creases do not re-appear once the fabric has fully dried). Similarly, depending on the thickness of the fabric, various steam settings ensure you find the ideal one for every item in your ironing pile. Cotton and silk are common examples of fabrics which need to be ironed at very different temperatures and different steam outputs for better looking results.
Enhanced Safety, Greater Peace of Mind
Safety is a key priority for Tefal, which is why the Pro Express has an auto-off function. Your steam generator will be as safe as possible when not in use, by automatically shutting off when left unattended. An added benefit is that it switches itself off after 30 seconds if the soleplate is left face down, or eight minutes if left on its heel.
Tefal's unique Ultracord system prevents the cord from rucking up on the clothes you’re ironing and keeps it from getting in the way. It also features a lock system, so you can safely carry the appliance by the handle with just one hand.
The Pro Express features a 12-month guarantee, supported by comprehensive after sales service for all of your needs.
About Steam Generators
A steam generator is the most powerful type of ironing solution available. The appliances differ from a conventional steam iron as steam is generated in a separate boiler unit and pumped through the iron's soleplate into your clothes. The extra pressurised steam, is pumped continuously through the fabric, cutting your ironing time in half! The pressure is measured in bars and the higher the pressure, the deeper the steam penetrates into the fabric, relaxing the fibres, for better results. The steam generator's steam output is indicated in grams per minute (g/min), so the higher the output, the more steam is generated.
Better and faster results, ensuring your clothes look great every day!
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. Finally, Tefal’s linen care range offers unique and patented innovative features, ensuring your ironing is quicker, easier and hassle free – cutting your ironing time in half!
