one of the better travel irons
on 3 October 2009
This is (in my opinion) one of the better steam travel irons available at present.
It is around the same weight and general size of other travel irons available. It has an easy clean soleplate and reasonable sized water tank (it holds enough water to iron a shirt/blouse, skirt/trousers, dress, etc). It is a good item to take with you on a holiday or short break, and is extremely useful if travelling for work purposes.
The iron has controllable heat levels, good steam jets and a fine spray for those stubborn creases. It has an appealing jet-ski type shape to it, and is very easy to handle.
The electric cable is 1.8 metres - a good length if the socket isn't at the bottom of the wall and a couple of feet from the nearest flat surface. I always pack an extension cable in the bag as well, just in case.
As with any iron it gets very hot and needs to be allowed time to cool down before you put it away.
One fault with the iron (if you can call it a fault) is that there is no where to reel the cable when the iron has cooled down.
This is one of several travel irons that we have, but this is the one I use the most.
