Makes light-work of ironing,
This review is from: Brabantia Titan Oval Ironing Board with Iron Parking Zone Size D, 135 x 45 cm (Kitchen & Home)
I am well-pleased with this ironing board. I like the generous surface area at the wide end that makes light-work of large items. The board tails off into a narrower end enable one to iron shirts or tops of trousers. I particularly like the heat proof-panel at the end of the board that allows one to place an iron on it face-down as you move an item around. The heat-proof panel is part of the ironing board cover so there's no dividing line between the ironing surface and the resting place for the iron, which is a boon is one is ironing a very large item, such as a duvet cover, as it can drape over the whole board without catching on anything.
The raising and lowering mechanism is fairly simple and has a useful clamp to mark the height that suits you so that you don't have to adjust the height each time you use the board. There's a safety device to stop, for example, a child inadvertently causing the board to collapse down.
Because the board is generously proportioned, and robustly built. it is quite heavy to lift
