Product Description

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.


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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes ironing easier 26 Oct 2011
By purpleheart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.


- 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


- 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

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent iron 24 Oct 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Replacement 8 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy to have it! 21 Nov 2011

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars super iron 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tefal Ultraglide 19 Sep 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Iron 15 Mar 2012
By Alexa
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I initially got this as a backup iron but quickly realised that it is so much better than my original. It is so easy to use and I don't have any of the problems have had with previous irons. It's really smooth and irons out creases really quickly. It doesn't snag on your clothes or feel like it's damaging them. And most importantly, it doesn't leave any nasty debris on my clothes which is a problem I've had with my last two irons.

The iron is really light weight so it's easy for anyone to use. It's designed so that it tidies away easy so you don't have the cord dangling all over the place.

Without a doubt the best iron I have ever had.
