I bought this iron recently after previously having 2 Polti irons both wich suffered mechanical problems. Having read the reviews I thought I would try the Tefal brand instead. Its is a bit more expensive than others but I am so pleased that I bought it. As a sales executive I need my shirts to be crease free and this iron does just the job. In addition the rest of my clothes are now a joy to iron. 5* product. Well done Tefal!!
