Decent but not amazing.,
This review is from: Breville Extreme Steam VIN227 Steam Generator - 2,000 Watts (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall this iron seems well made and well designed. It is easy to use, heats up quickly and it does what it's supposed to. At the end of the day though it really ought to out-perform or at least match my old steam generator (I've had it 3-4 years and it has similar spec) but it is nowhere near as good. The steam just doesn't seem to penetrate as well, such as double thicknesses having to be ironed on both sides like pillowcases, my old one would quickly remove all the creases with a blast of steam and go through both layers eliminating the need to iron both sides and considerably cutting down on ironing time. There seems little point in having a steam generator if it doesn't do this. One pass should be all it takes to un-crease a duvet cover or sheet but this one seems to only iron as well as a good steam iron I'm not sure why this but I have passed this along now and have gone back to my old one.
