The item actually has 5 stars - it was delivered on time and has worked as expected - sorry for the negative review.Fully Automatic Electronic Steam Press
When it arrived the ironing bed was slightly smaller than my previous model and I thought this might be a problem but in reality it really hasn't been an issue at all. The plates heat up quite quickly, there is a dial for you to select your desired temperature and a tank to fill with water if you want to for steaming but more often then not I don't need to use the steam.
It's especially good for ironing bedding, jeans, tea shirts etc. I use it for virtually everything but if you are very fussy with your ironed finish for things like shirts then for these you may prefer to stick to a traditional iron. That said I use it for my family's shirts and they don't complain - probably because they know they would have to do their own ironing if they did!
If the temperature is set too high you can burn and melt clothes, in the same way that you can when you use a normal iron on too high a setting. I've done this a few times and it makes a terrible mess on the top plate but with the right product and some elbow grease you can remove the mess and residue. With the more delicate items, to overcome this problem I tend to press them after I've turned the press off at the mains as it takes a while to cool down completely and I find I can usually press several delicate items after finishing the main ironing.
The only small downside I have with this press is that the dial slips towards the hottest setting so I've had to keep an eye on this otherwise I would be using the linen setting for everything but all I've had to do is reposition it to where I want it a couple of times during each ironing session.Read more ›
The important fact is that the promptness of delivery was excellent. Thanks to Lionel, due to a Bank Holiday Monday, he arranged for delivery on Saturday as need was urgent.
The Mega Compact electronic steam press, was easily understood and set up and away I went. I have wanted one of these for my wife for many years but she would not hear of it. Her heavy steam generator iron had been damaged, and she wanted a lighter standard steam iron (also arrived from Amazon on Saturday).
Therefore I took the opportunity to also order a proper Ironing press. A steam iron will also be necessary at times, but the Mega Compact seems to be easy to operate whilst sitting and does what it should. It has more features than the product ordered had indicated, and is compact & light to move.
So far on first day, we are delighted with it.
Whilst it does as required and is compact, my wife, having found a mutually convenient Ironing press location in the computer den with tv & audio, and now having tried it, would have ordered a slightly bigger one. (Next time).
I would not hesitate to recommend the Ironing Press Company @ Amazon and would only suggest that they link a website to the amazon site where potential customers can view the selection of product available in more detail and with comparisons. Also email contact to deal with any questions or advice, before ordering from Amazon.

Poor design. Handle broke. This is the weakest point. Alright for small items but not for bedding or large items.Published on 26 Aug. 2014 by Jill Howe
I did actually buy a second hand one many years ago but it was far too big and cumbersome. This steam press is not only compact and lightweight to lift but it does an amazing job. Read morePublished on 17 May 2014 by Aine
