As out first steam generator I can not compare it to other models, but what I can say is I can't imagine how any other model could be much better in terms of getting the job done. A quick swish over anything with the steam pumping and it is crease free, the steam comes even at relatively low plate temperatures so so far I have not had anything I've had to go over more than once to get it crease free. I have to have a sharp crease in the front of my trousers for work and the steam boost puts that in instantly. All my clothes are tumble dried too, so are in a right crumpled state when I start. I really does work amazingly well.
It is quite light, quite quiet and gets a lot done between refills.
The only 'fault' I've found so far is how difficult it is to read the water level monitor, which is a window into the reservoir. It has nothing floating in it as a level or any light/alarm to notify you if it is getting low, and can be really difficult to read, especially if you are leaving the unit on the floor while in use, you really have to get on your hands and knees and shake the unit to move the straight line of the water top to see how the water is going.
Otherwise though, I wish I'd bought one sooner and am very pleased with it.
Generator comes with 2 year warranty (a bonus) and an anti calc system to keep the system clean. All in all a worthwhile purchase.
1. The firm refunded my money quickly (less postage) when I returned it. So MAKE SURE you order the correct model.
2. The model I purchased from Argos was a Philips Pressurised Generator Iron for half the price it was offered on amazon for,
so check models and prices before you buy !
3. The model I bought is excellent and reduces ironing time by half, as you may expect the actual Iron is lighter than a standard Iron but the total weight of the unit is heavier.
Having spent 2 weeks researching steam generator irons and reading reviews I decided that this was the iron for me. I ordered this product and within 2 days it arrived. I ironed for at least 40 mins without having to top up water. The steam trigger is acutely responsive, as soon as you let go the steam stops (my old iron kept steaming even after you let go of the trigger, giving you a continual face sauna!). It glides, yes glides through items that are tough to iron and the best thing is that on plain t-shirts or any cotton item is that you only really need to iron one side! How cool is that? Obviously it halves the ironing time of most items which surely is a positive.
The best feature also is that you do not need to change filter cartridges or use tablets. (the downfall of my previous iron as the cartridges were far too expensive!!!!!) - According to the instructions after every 10 uses you just need to rinse out the water tank. Free and easy. So therefore would highly recommend this product to fellow friends who also hate ironing.
