Product Description

Tefal Ultraglide  FV4488G1 : Power through the ironing

The Tefal Ultraglide  FV4488G1  steam iron combines power and efficiency with low maintenance. It offers a very powerful 2300 wattage and 0-35g/minute steam output, to gently soften clothes for easier ironing. The Tefal Ultraglide also boasts a 100g/minute shot of steam, a boost to get rid of those more difficult and stubborn creases.

The steam output of an iron is indicated in grams per minute (g/min), so the higher the output, the more steam is generated to tackle creases. And the more powerful the iron, the deeper steam will penetrate fabric for quicker, hassle-free ironing and excellent results, no matter the fabric.

Extra Large Refill
Durable soleplate

The Tefal Ultraglide  FV4488G1  features the Tefal Ultraglide soleplate which features enhanced glideability thanks to its very smooth surface which helps reduce resistance when ironing. Glideability is one of the main features which facilitate use and increases ironing efficiency and comfort. Furthermore, in order to ensure longer lasting performance, the Ultraglide soleplate is equipped enhanced anti-scratch properties, ensures excellent heat distribution and is very easy to clean.

Simple to use

The Ultraglide  FV4488G1  features an extra large filling opening for easy, safe and fast refilling. As well as a large 270ml water tank and a 3m cord equipped with Tefal’s Easycord system which prevents your cord from rucking on the items you’re ironing. Thanks to the vertical steam, you will also be able to give a fresh touch to your hanging garments, suits and curtains.

Easy maintenance

The FV4488 is self-cleaning, with anti-scale and anti-drip functions for easy maintenance.

Safety

Because safety is a key priority for Tefal, the iron comes equipped with an auto off feature, so there's no need to worry about whether the appliance has been turned off. If left unattended, the iron will turn itself off after eight minutes when on its heel, and after 30 seconds when laid down on its side or with it’s soleplate facing down. The iron also has an extra stable large open heel for safer storage, and easier ironing. This iron provides stability and is supported by strong domestic guarantees and after sales service.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Why is my iron leaking from the soleplate when I fill it?

Please be advised that when filling up your iron with water you should have all settings on a “no steam” setting. Ensure the iron is unplugged. Fill the iron up, plug in, switch on, then turn the dials to the settings required ensuring that the iron is set to a temperature where steam will be produced. This will ensure that the steam valve within the water tank remains closed and will prevent any water from leaking out of the water tank when water is added.

2) Why does steam not come out from all of the steam holes?

Not all of the steam holes release steam, the smaller holes on the soleplate that look like they might be steam holes are actually designed to assist soleplate glide ability.

3) Why did my iron smoke on first use?

When heating your iron for the first time, you may notice a small amount of odour and smoke, this is simply the engineering residues from the manufacturing process burning off. These are harmless and will quickly disappear.

4) Why do some water drops drip from the ironing board onto the floor during ironing?

It is normal. Your iron generates a lot of steam; this steam is condensing on the board. Some water drops can appear underneath the ironing board and drip onto the flooring.

5) Why does water leak from the soleplate when the iron is stores or when it is cooling off?

Your iron has been stored horizontally, without emptying the water tank and with the selector placed on steam position. When you store your iron horizontally, check that the tank is empty and the steam selector is set to "DRY" position.

6) My iron is producing no or little steam

Check the following points: - The tank is empty or almost empty; add more water, - The selected temperature is too low and does not allow steam to be produced; set the thermostat to the steam zone (between two dots and MAX), - If your iron has a Dry/Steam control, set it to the Steam position, - Scale has built up in your iron; descale it.

7) What water should I use for ironing?

Untreated tap water:

Your appliance has been designed to function using untreated tap water. If your water is very hard, we recommend you use a mix of 50% untreated tap water and 50% distilled or demineralised water.

Types of water not to use:

Heat concentrates the elements contained in water during evaporation. The types of water listed below may contain organic waste, mineral or chemical elements that can cause spitting, brown staining or premature wear of the appliance: water from clothes dryers, scented or softened water, water from refrigerators, batteries, air conditioners, rain water, boiled, filtered or bottled water. These types of water should not be used in your TEFAL iron. Also only use distilled water as advised above.

Always remember: Never use rainwater or water containing additives (like starch, fragrance or water from domestic appliances). Such additives can affect the steam properties and at high temperature form deposits in the steam generator chamber which are likely to stain your washing.

8) Can I put my iron away right after ironing?

No, leave the iron to cool down before putting it away and follow the four tips: empty out the water remaining in the tank, set the thermostat to the minimum, close the steam control and stand it upright or place it on the base (depending model).

9) What should I do to maintain my iron correctly?

Four tips: After use, empty the tank, close the steam control, set the thermostat to minimum and stand the iron upright or place it on the base (depending on model). Cleaning: Use a damp soft cloth to wipe your iron and never use cleaners or solvents. If your iron has an auto-clean function, refer to the instruction manual before using it.

Tips:

- Always use untreated water in your iron. If your water is very hard, we recommend you use a mix of 50% untreated tap water and 50% distilled water.

- Avoid placing your iron on sharp objects such as zip fasteners and metal buttons.

- Do not put your iron down flat on rough surfaces.

- Be careful not to drop the iron as this can cause leaks and damage to the appliance.

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 ideas, technology and innovation. Examples of that cutting-edge innovation can be seen in the ActiFry, the AirBake baking range and Tefal's Thermo Spot, which ensures your pans are always the optimum temperature to start cooking.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My old Phillips iron was still working but the difference this iron has made has been very marked and it's less expensive than my old one was years ago.

Pros

- The ultraglide surface on the iron cuts down on the number of times you actually have to run the iron over the cloth
- The iron is light which means that your wrist doesn't ache when you have a lot to iron
- The cord has a good design which keeps out of the way when you're ironing
- It's anti-scale which is very important in hard water areas
- The extra steam shot is helpful with difficult creases

Cons

- The instruction leaflet is not that helpful...just pics and I ended up going to the website for more info
- It's a good weight for me but I know some prefer a heavy iron

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a great iron. It's light but performs like a much heavier iron. It heats up fast and the temperature is easily controllable. I'm not sure what 'ultraglide' actually means but it is certainly very smooth in operation. The well designed base makes the iron very stable when you rest it on its end and the cable system manages to keep the cord out of the way when working. What more can I say? It does its job extremely well.

As our old Tefal Iron finally gave up the ghost, we were looking for one of the same brand & similar spec to replace it. Having researched the Tefal site & read several independent reviews, we settled on this model, and of course Amazon had the best price on offer. Great product, great service as always, need I say more?

I wanted to know a few things about a steam iron before I purchased one. Firstly has it got a long enough flex? all my socket outlets seem to be in the wrong place so this was my number one requirement. Secondly it had to have a sole plate that did not clog or stain. Thirdly it had to be lightweight and easy to fill. This little beauty does all this. Now I ll never be a true fan of ironing but this iron makes it bearable, so easy to use ,positively glides over clothes, easy to store. Buy one.

The best iron I ever had,
Its light weight and easy to use. The cord never gets in the way because it is fastened back and is long enough to reach the end of the ironing surface.
The ironing surface is smooth and lives up to its name, gliding smoothly over the surface without snagging or pulling. It is easily switched from steam to dry ironing and works equally well either way.
It makes ironing much more pleasant than it used to be.
The temperature control is good, so no more burning my clothes.
When not in use, the cord wraps neatly around the end and fastens in place with a clip.

Unfortunately this iron leaks from the water reservoir filling hole (not sure if that's the technical term for it but I'm sure you know what I mean). I initially thought I might have over filled it but have taken care since to only fill the iron to around the half way mark and still have the same problem. Obviously this is a bit disconcerting since it's plugged into the mains electricity.

I was looking for an steam iron which is easy to use and smooth on clothes, after doing some research I came across Tefal Ultraglide, I would say it's a great iron which glides very smooth on clothes, you'll hardly need to put any force on it to press your clothes. It steams very nicely and doesn't drip any water drops, also it's wire is very nicely designed and doesn't come in the way while you are ironing and the auto off feature is an extra bonus.

I'll highly recommend this iron.
