Product Description

Halve Your Ironing Time with Tefal’s New Pro Express Range
High pressure steam

The Tefal Protect GV9461 steam generator is powerful enough to easily tackle the toughest of ironing jobs in half the time, offering high 6 bar steam pressure and 120g/min continuous steam. Designed to handle the most stubborn of creases, the Protect also boasts a 260g/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

Autoclean soleplate for long lasting performance

Tefal offer the best soleplates in the world and the Pro Express GV9461 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 GV9461 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.

Anti-calc Collector

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.v

Enhanced Safety, Greater Peace of Mind

Safety is a key priority for Tefal, which is why the Protect 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. One unique feature of the Tefal Protect is its protective hood, which ensures the utmost safety when the iron is left unattended – hence the name Tefal Protect.

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 Protect 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
About Tefal

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.

    I bought this steam generator when our previous Tefal unit developed a terminal problem. We have been impressed by the Tefal steam generator range and would not be without one now.

    So, what do we like about it it?

    1. The unit feels reasonably sturdy and robust with the 'fold over' protect hood to cover up the iron and hold it place when not in use. The handle seems sufficient to carry the weight of the unit. It is at the larger end of the size range for these products, but that is reflected in its' steam generation capacity and ability to remove the most stubborn of creases. (5/5)
    2. It has a power cord rewind and storage facility (more on this later). 3/5)
    3. There is storage for the power and steam supply cord to the iron itself which at ~1.75m seems reasonable in length. (5/5)
    4. The extra steam boost function is great for those stubborn creases. (5/5)
    5. There is an auto shut off if not used for a period of time. Sensible, but if you plan use the iron without steam for a while (i.e the laundry is damp enough to not require steam) you need to use the odd shot of steam to prevent the cut off actuating.(4/5)
    6. This is an excellent unit for everyday ironing tasks, or those marathon sessions when you have let the ironing basket build up to overflowing. Has proved brilliant for the vertical steaming of work suits that are dry clean only and need 'refreshing' between trips to the dry cleaners. Also, it has proved gentle enough for delicate blouses. We have to say that creases just seem to disappear with little physical effort. It has proved great for the fiddly areas like sleeves and trouser legs. There seems to be no risk of 'scorch' or 'shine' to the fabric (assuming that you have read the manual and got the steam/temperature settings right!!

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    Having worked in the electrical trade for over 20 years I was always impressed with the specifications of this type of iron.

    When in the trade I used to demo a similar concept made by Polti, which was a steam iron that attached to a Stem generator, they were brilliant but a pain to set up as you need to connect the steam generator first wait 20 minutes for it to heat up and it fast ran out of water which again was another slow process refilling, plus it was all very expensive.

    I had fancied one of these for along time, but like a lot of people you tend to wait until your old iron breaks before you replace it.
    I remember when they first came out they were large and heavy so was looking forward to see how they had improved.

    First impressions are very good, smaller than I expected.
    It has a detachable water tank which holds 1.8 litres of water which is well above average removable tank which makes filling a doddle

    Its performance is fantastic, you have control over the steam and also have a hot shot of steam which works very well.

    The Ultracord system is simple but very cleaver and effective it prevents the cable being anywhere near the ironing.

    It has Tefal's anti scale collector, I live in North Wales which has very soft water and no lime scale so can't confirm how well it works, its easy to remove.

    Does the Tefal make Ironing more enjoyable, probably not, but It does make it easier and faster.

    This is an extremely well made product that works extremely well, I recommend that you don't wait for your old iron to break but buy one of these they are brilliant.

    Ordered on the Wednesday arrived on Friday i used it straight away I've had lots of irons over the years I've lost count - my main complaint is they just don't get hot enough and the ironing took hours with very good results. My last steam generator iron needed to be cleaned after 10 times of using bit of a chore but if you missed it your clothes would be marked with lime scale.So based on 'Which' and amazon reviews I purchased this one. So glad i did as i love it!!

    I already had one of Tefal's steam irons http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tefal-Express-Turbo-GV8360-Generator/dp/B001PKUTG4/ref=cm_aya_orig_subj

    But when the opportunity to get an updated model which promised to be more powerful and yet more efficient came along I jumped at it.

    First things first this iron is big but its size, the downside is that for just doing the odd item it is big and cumbersome, but on those days when you have a few weeks worth of ironing to do it is excellent as it eliminates the need to have repeat trips to the tap or a jug of water near to you which I often used to knock all over the washing.

    In comparison to the older Tefal I had this iron is the same length and width as the GV8360 but is higher due to the main visible design difference, the protective hood and carry handle. The GV8360 had a small lock at the front that you pulled up and then carried the whole thing by the irons handle which is quick and convenient.

    The GV9461 has a dedicated handle that pulls up a protective cover over the entire iron. I'm not really too sure if the intention of this was to secure the iron more for carrying or to prevent access to the iron when it was hot. But it certainly does feel more secure in your hand and I had no doubt the bottom would stay in place in opposition to the GV8360 where I was always slightly worried that the lock might slip off and the base would drop.

    Pulling the handle into place is easy just pull backwards and it automatically locks into place. To release you have to press a button on the left hand side and push the handle back to the front of the base.
