Russell Hobbs 20280 Colour Control Iron,
This review is from: Russell Hobbs 20280 Colour Control Iron - 2400 watts - Black (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Russell Hobbs 20280 Colour Control Iron is a sturdy, well-made steam iron with a ceramic soleplate and easy to understand colour coded temperature indicator. Supplied with a measuring jug and good set of instructions, blue is the coolest temperature, green is for nylons/polyester, yellow for wool/polyester mixes, purple for cotton/denim and red is the maximum temperature. The iron has a 300ml water tank but can be used with or without the steam function. It heats up quickly, is light and easy to manoeuvre and the steam shot works well. If left unattended and unused for a period of time it automatically shuts off which is a smart, and useful, safety feature. There is also a self clean button which the manufacturer recommends be used monthly in normal water areas or more frequently in harder water areas.
All in all I have been delighted with this product which replaced my rather elderly and much used previous Russell Hobbs iron. With a 2 year warranty, it is easy to set and use and I am very happy with the results. My only gripe, and I have deducted 1 star for this, is that I would have liked the cord to have been slightly longer but I have resolved the issue by using an extension cable.
