My First Steam Generator Iron - Love it!
on 27 March 2014
I bought some very high thread cotton sheets recently and they were a 'pig' to iron so I decided to invest in this iron. Firstly, I got a brilliant price from Amazon but even more importantly, it is an amazing iron. I loathe ironing but this cuts down the time by a long way. The actual iron is fairly lightweight; it is easy to refill the reservoir and you don't have to wait for the unit to cool down, just take the reservoir off the machine and refill. It zips it way effortlessly through very dry cotton garments and the aforementioned sheets. I also tried it on a crepe de chine dress that I could not be bothered to wear as it needed ironing and with all the fiddly bits on it, I just could not be bothered. Kept it on the hanger and ironed it as it was hanging, running the iron over the front and just getting the creases out with the steam and not pressure - great result. I have been thinking about getting a steam generator iron for some years but the reviews were always a bit hit and miss. This iron had lots of reviews and they were all 4 or 5 star, which is why I bought it. So glad I did. I think ironing may turn out to be, perhaps not exactly a pleasure but certainly a lot less of a chore.
