I bought this iron because of the name having just had another Russell Hobbs model which was brilliant. Sadly this one was nowhere near as good as the other model. I used it only once and found the water leaked out all the time I was ironing, leaving puddles of water all over the ironing board and making wet patches on the clothes. I will still buy Russell Hobbs but a little more expensive, its less hassle.

Very disappointed in this product, worked ok for about a month then started to leak, now unuseable, waste of good money

I have returned my iron this morning having bought it from a high street retailer and I couldn't be happier to be shot of it. As with previous reviews, it leaked also failed to reach even a reasonable temperature and the auto steam stopped working completely. Am going to go off and buy a Breville now... Avoid this one!
