Great time and energy saver.
on 31 August 2014
Having been stung by Bosch for my first steam generator iron, I swore to avoid them in future.
Instead, after reading the Amazon reviews on this beauty, I bit the bullet and splashed out.
What a time- and effort-saver this is!
It holds a massive 1.8 litres of TAP water (no more expensive distilled water for me, thank you), has an eco button using less team, heats up within a couple of minutes and is an absolute pleasure to use.
It's cut my ironing time in half (and therefore electricity bill, too), is easy to use and also has an excellent locking bar which stops the iron falling from the base, and allows the entire thing to be carried by the handle of the iron.
If only all steam generators were made like this.
My only gripe is that the calcium collector isn't as easy to clean as they say.
Simply rinsing under the tap doesn't get the calcium off. Rather like rinsing out a kettle won't remove the calcium deposits from that, either.
But it's still the best iron I've ever owned, and I'm really pleased with it.
