Good start...didn't last long
on 3 August 2013
We bought this iron around the start of the year, with high hopes of it being better than our previous Russell Hobbs which had never worked properly from day one. It got off to a great start, looked nice, seemed to do a great job. The only real issue was the fact it doesn't hold much water, so you tend to find yourself having to constantly stop to fill it up! That and the fact that the power cord constantly curls and twists up, I've never known an iron do it quite so much! Every time you come to you use it you have to straight out the cable!
About a month ago it stopped delivering very much steam, no matter what combination of settings the only way of getting a good dose of steam was pushing the button for a burst of steam. Then last week water starting leaking, but not where you might think, it was coming from out of the handle, where the two buttons for steam burst and spray are. I was then fearing possible electrocution, so I arranged a return and now have Phillips!
