Customer comments

Same as other reviews stating that it stopped working producing steam and making funny noises. Shame as this iron worked so well.

I bought this last year from amazon and didn't keep the warranty card. now it is not working and steam is not getting generated.

The iron is very easy to use straight out of the box and gives fantastic and quick ironing results.

Things that we like about this iron:
-It heats up very quickly, even to the maximum temperature setting.
-The steam function never leaks. My wife uses the steam function a lot, and the iron always produces decent steam (i.e. no water comes out).
-The iron is easy to clean (with a `calc clean' function, explained below)
-The iron has a good length of power cord for our needs, approx. 2.5m when laid out.
-The iron is light (1.6kg)
-The iron is noticeably smooth on all fabrics.
