I thought this was expensive for an iron, but mine had broken and several friends recommended this type of iron. I'm so glad I bought it. I have to say that it is so much quicker than my old traditional steam iron. The unit is very big and you will probably need to get an appropriate ironing board. I bought the Brabantia Ironing Board with Solid Stream Unit Holder (from Amazon), which is perfect for this iron. The iron itself is nice to hold and not heavy. It whizzes through the ironing, although it took me about 20 minutes to get used to it as you have to press for steam, rather than it coming automatically. The unit is very big and holds lots of water so no need to keep refilling. The electric cord on this one retracts automatically into the unit for storage. The iron can be locked onto the base unit to make it safe for storage and the cord from the unit to the iron can also be manually put into the base unit for storage. I now don't find the ironing a chore liked it used to be! So, overall, I would thoroughly recommend this iron and this type of ironing system.

This is the second Tefal we have had - the first one lasted 7 years and was a real work horse. This one came highly recommended, with many updates on water compartment size etc & now has a fiddly corkscrew design which is supposed to keep the hard water deposits from building up.

Unfortunately this was not the case 2 weeks ago when I decided to steam on the hanger my DJ prior to a black tie dinner and a brown liquid deposit was left all over the back of the jacket. Having cleaned it out religiously the same thing happened again when steam pressing a white pullover which is now on it's way to the dry cleaners

Awaiting response from Tefal, check the review centre where it gets one star for its brown staining malfunction

I bought this unit somewhere Feb 13, The unit started giving big noise when the generator works, but i dint pay much attention. Then later on, it started acting abnormally like, no steam when you press STEAM button, and when you leave the iron ON, it will spray steam very faster. Every 1 min you need to restart the iron by pressing the ON/OFF button or restart button, otherwise it steamer will not work. I had very bad experience with this unit and complained to amazon last week andluckily Amazon has agreed to refund the full payment as it is under warranty. Thanks you Amazon.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I've always thought 'an iron's an iron'... and they're all the same.. right? With this iron I've been put in my place about the difference in irons. I've always gone for a pretty cheap iron thinking that they all do the same thing but comparing it to this iron there really is quite a difference. What makes this iron stand out is the amount of difference the steam makes. The main base unit has a removable container that holds significantly more water than a standard iron and keeps you ironing for ages. The plug is tucked away in the main unit and has a really nice retractable cord to allow you to store it safely after use and also helps not get in the way when you are ironing. From the main unit, there is a power/steam cord that is about 2-3 metres long that allows the steam that is produced in the main unit to be expelled from the iron itself (do be warned though as the cord can get quite hot but is safe to touch). By the way this cord can be stored by feeding it through a 'tunnel' that runs around the base unit at the front and is quite a clever way of ensuring that the unit is tidy once stowed away.

Tefal boast about the pressure produced for the steam and they aren't exaggerating. For normal steam use and holding the iron horizontally, the steam moves about 1.5 metres away from you. With the Boost steam button however (which gives one sharp long boost of steam) it will travel half way across the room (about 3-4 metres). Absolutely fabulous for steaming clothes whilst on their hanger. The iron itself sits on the base unit and can lock into place with a 'latch' mechanism which will allow you to safely carry your iron although it is pretty heavy. Another great thing about the iron is that it will automatically switch off if not in use after 30 seconds if the iron is face down or 8 minutes if it's left on it's heel. It's also great that it has a switch on the main unit to allow you to use 'Eco' setting which I have on all the time now.

All in all a superb iron but still a little on the steep side.

This Iron replaced another Tefal steam generator iron that I had for about 6 years, so I can honestly say I like the irons. Tefal have added an eco button to this iron, I would have been more impressed if I could of taken the old one to a local tradesperson and got that mended instead of having to parcel it up and send it to Birmingham then the cost of repairs and probably postage charge for it to come 40 miles back to me. I decided it was probably cheaper to buy new. There wasn't much up with the old one the base was still generating steam but for some reason it wasn't travelling down the steam tube to the iron unless you manipulated it and then held it in position. I actually prefer my old iron, there weren't so many bells and whistles on it, but this one still irons fantastically which is why it got 5*, to recap I love their irons but the after service leaves a lot to be desired.

What a fantastic buy! I used to own a Bosch steam generator, which I loved. When it finally gave up the ghost after years of loyal service I was worried about finding another model that would be just as powerful. After lots of research, I decided to go for this Tefal model due to its powerful constant steam and steam boost power, as well as its anti-calc collector. All I can say is WOW, this iron is fantastic. It's the right shape and weight to make ironing a breeze and the steam, as you would expect from a steam generator, smooths away even the most stubborn creases with no problem whatsoever.

But what i really like about this model compared to others is that there is no need to be winding and coiling up the cable and hose, since it has an easy storage system that keeps everything tidy and secure. In fact you can pick the whole thing up by the handle of the iron and store it away easily.

The Bosch was a hard act to follow, but this little baby has surpassed all expectations - bring on the ironing basket!

Love this iron, and just replacing the same model I purchased some years ago. The old iron was still working well, but the soleplate was worn and not ironing as smoothly as it should. I had considered just buying a new soleplate (available from Tefal) but as we are not electricians was worried in case we fitted it incorrectly (don't want to think about the consequences of that) Buying the new iron from Amazon was a great deal cheaper than the
original one cost from a known large electrical dealer, and was delivered to me in just a couple of days. Well done Amazon.

Although I do not have the heavy workload that I once did, I chose a steam generator because ironing with one is made so much easier. Ironing is faster and the results are superb. This is my third steam generator and second Tefal product. My previous Tefal steam generator should have lasted longer but I experienced what other people have mentioned i.e. dirty water leaking from the iron onto the clothes and once the soleplate is damaged with residue it seems impossible to clean. Having said this I must mention that the real reason for purchasing another is because I dropped it. The removable water tank is an excellent feature, which I did not have with the previous iron, which made it difficult to fill and heavy to move around. Once again an excellent service provided by Amazon. Ordering from Amazon is simple and efficient. My experiences with them have always been positive and recommend them to everyone.

Last November I bought the Bosch TDS2569GB -

Bosch Professional Power 2800w Steam Generator Tds2569gb, 120g Shot Of Steam, 5 Bar, Permanent Refill Water Tank, Ceramic Soleplate

based on reviews from Amazon combined with it being a Which Best Buy and of course bearing the Bosch brand name. This was to prove a mistake.

From day one I didn't think the Bosch lived up to expectations in terms of ease of use, increased speed of ironing and overall quality of the product it was however our first venture into the Steam Generator arena so I thought maybe I was expecting too much.

Soon after beginning to use it we noticed that the rest plate the Iron sits on started to crack and fall apart, eventually some 13 months into the 24 month warranty I decided enough was enough and contacted Bosch to arrange a repair. Imagine my surprise when they refused!!

Lost story short, Amazon Customer Service was excellent, arranged to have the faulty unit collected and we have replaced it with this Tefal Unit. Instantly it addresses many of the failings of the Bosch unit.

The Iron sits firmly on the base.
There is a safety feature to stop the iron falling off.
The coil wind feature is excellent.
Storage for the steam hose is ideal.

and the list goes on but most of all it irons 100% better and faster than the Bosch ever did.

If you are thinking of buying the Bosch over this unit simply forget it and save yourself the disappointment!!
