Excellent price. Done a quick check at a few of my local stores and they have very limited stock. I would imagine these would go very quick!

Jet Stream Elite Pro Steam Generator - Ceramic Soleplate

The Jetstream Elite Pro steam generator provides exceptional results and powers through the most challenging of creases. It is also incredibly versatile and can be used to freshen up curtains, blinds, suits, jackets etc. This particular model benefits from a whole host of features including a ceramic soleplate, a separate 1.1 litre water tank and cable storage. This product is no longer available for sale.

Ceramic Soleplate

Provides you with exceptional glide ability to smooth out those difficult creases.
2200W

Rapid heat up for household use.
108g Steam Output

Huge amounts of steam output relaxes your fabric to allow easy pressing, giving you superior results. This level of steam output helps to cut down ironing time by tackling difficult creases with ease.
Separate 1.1 Litre Tank

The large water tank allows you to iron for much longer without the need to refill helping to avoid interruptions. As the water tank is separate you also benefit from using a much lighter iron.
Vertical Steam

Vertical steaming allows you to iron and freshen up hanging items such as suits and jackets, you can also steam curtains and blinds
Water Spray

As steam generators have a separate water tank a water spray compartment on the iron handset is a real bonus. Used to dampen dry garments and help you to remove those difficult creases.

Had two Morphy Richards Jetstreams fail within 3 years - just outside the warranty. That's the last I buy of them! :x

these are great irons - we've had an older model for about 7 years now and it's still perfect and these steam generator type irons are a million times better than a bogo steam iron. It's amazing how quick you can do stuff with these and cause the iron doesn't need to be all that hot to generate the steam (which is generated seperately) you don't risk damaging clothes when it's too hot or getting water marks when too cold!

WAS £199?
The entire COMPANY isn't worth £199!

I am with Newbold on this one, Morphy Richards stuff is just simply not up to much :-(

In general, Steam Generators are a vast improvement on irons, but I am well over buying Morphy Richards anything!

Agreed - steam generators are excellent, but not Morphy Richards. Any info on decent ones? ;-)

I got the Argos Value one for about £40 to see if all the fuss over these generators was worth it. I am happy enough with that one to be honest, would go with that as the MR ones dont get great reviews but the Argos ones do and I would say were well worth the money

Being a bloke, domestic work isn't one of my strong points.
Can someone explain the advantage this item has over using a conventional steam iron at maximum steam setting?
#9
£69.99? How much? :thinking:

She can have a £4.99 Asda iron and like it. Xmas has been and gone.

Never mind 'steam generator' - hard to remove creases only occur because she's too lazy to get the washing out of the machine promptly when it's finished it's cycle.
#10
do not buy this, spen 20 quid more and get the kenwood a little noisy but if you iron shirts on a regular basis this will break in a less than 2 years.
#11
Kenwoods are currently on sale for £42-60 in Argos anyway.

If you are going to go for a cheap brand, might as well go for them.

cold from me.

That's ok then, as it has a 2yr guarantee.

I have bought 3... a Tefal, lasted about 7 years, then got a Philips one, which I gave away after a few months as it was so feeble; went out and bought another Tefal, not top of the range, but the Philips experience taught me that about 75 or 80g of steam is the absolute MINIMUM, as is at least 4bar pressure, no less!
That said, a friend bought a 35 quid Aldi special offer, and had it a long time, with reasonable performance in the meantime!

Performance is not so much an issue with thin shirts, but jeans require a LOT of oomph, and the whole idea is to cut time it takes ot iron, so if it can't keep up a decent head of steam, you are hanging about waiting, defeating the point!

Tefal seem to have the market in these, but they are also a bit of a price :-(

Totally agree - these things [frm Morphy Richards anyway] are rubbish! :x

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE! would be my advice...........

Wow! You can use a piece of paper to iron? :whistling:

When it is away for weeks or longer getting fixed or replaced you will begin to realise that a guarantee can be pretty useless compared to reliability!
#17
Hmm, I'm in two minds. Reserved one at my local but you guys are all saying they are crap lol.

Agreed, bar the 4bar comment - I've had a 1.8 for a while, and no issues at all with performance.

Tefal are the leaders but dear oh dear you will pay for it!
#19
many people saying they are crap don't actually have one - i do and it's been great for the last 7 years! Saying that, it will probably go and die on me tomorrow after saying that....

Not sure whethers its crap, but there is equally good (or bad, depending on your view) brandnames, with similar spec, for quite a bit less money (as I posted above).

Good luck! I've had two, and both have died shortly after the warranty ran out.

Never, never again. :thumbsup:

Had an earlier model, from about 5 years ago, literally it worked fine (never even changed the filter) until 2 days ago.

I also had 2 fail on me within 18 months. When i took the second back the guy at Comet even said they were rubbish. . . .Avoid!
#24
Funnilly enough I've been looking to buy one of these over the past week or so.
I've seen the offers in Argos and had a personal recommendation of the 'Polti' brand from my sister though these look to be more than I wanted to spend - on an iron.
Looking at them in-store today there were pressurised and non-pressurised steam generators, with an obvious price difference. Given the recommendations above about minimum pressure of 4 bar I take it that I shouldn't even consider a non-pressurised iron?

Any opinions / suggestions?

Thanks

Rob
#25
To be honest Rob it really depends how much you iron!

For most smaller families, I would say that you dont need the 4bar.
#26
So how many bar has the Morphy Richards iron in the title then?

Cracked me up dude. You are so, so right. It's just too much like hard work for them mate, thats the problem. I say to mine, 'the roofing repairs can wait, now get down here, get that washing out and ironed and make my dinner, then you can finish on the roof'.

They've got it too easy.

My parents have a Polti. It literally died on them over Christmas. I know theyv had it a while not sure how long but its outside of warranty. They love it and are hoping to have it repaired. Its not just an iron but has some attatchments for cleaning and other bits and bobs i think.
I saw this MR iron on here and have reserved them one as a back up but all these people are saying its rubbish.

deary me
#30
we have this iron, it's awful - constantly steams, even when up-right resting, chucks out brown gunk all over clothes - seriously, awful iron. Had a Tefal one before (same type) and that was excellent (until it broke!!). Would never get this iron again.
#31
bought this iron about 9mths ago worked really well until the steamer didn't work. I called morphy richards and they sent me a new upgraded model (they don't make this one anymore) within 5 days which I am really happy with.

It's what you iron, not who you iron for that is the issue.

Iron light synthetic blouses and thin children's t shirts, and anything will cope. Iron thick, quality jeans, that are bone dry, and it won't!

The point of a steam generator is to be able to iron very well, very quickly, if it hasn't the pressure, and it hasn't the volume of steam output available, then there's not much point! I could out-iron the Philips one I had which only produced about 3.5 bar & 65g/min of steam without so much as raising a sweat(!), and you then keep pausing while it catches up, entirely defeating the point of having one!

The steam does the crease removing, not excessive iron heat, the net result is well ironed stuff with very little extra pressing-on, no pausing and even things like trousers don't overheat or glaze over due to the ability to use low temperature.

If you iron light blouses on a low setting like a Great Grandmother doing a Tai Chi session, then a 4 quid one from Asda will be just the job, although even then, ordinary irons drip and blow dirty gunge out from water hardness, steam generators are the way round that too!

The low pressurised ones have the benefit of being able to fill up any time, the pressure type need cooling slightly so you can open them, but with just 1Litre, you can do a LOT of ironing, so unless you do marathon ironing sessions this isn't an issue either way.
The best lower pressure irons can produce MASSES of steam anyway, (that's how they get around being a lower pressure) so the pressure isn't so much an issue - however, they best ones in this category are a fortune, so a bit out of the discussion range here, I was assuming!

Has anyone bought one of these and so can comment on how good / bad they are?

Mr Twister
Havent you read the all comment on this thread ?


I have indeed. I've also read some reviews on other websites too.

Some people love it and some people hate it. Perhaps the manufacturers have remedied the issues people have encountered so latest batches could potentially be better hence my question.

I personaly wouldn`t touch another Morphy Richards steam generator iron after having 2 on me fail within 18 months. Saying that when it was working it made ironing far less of a chore.
#38
I'll probably give this one a miss then.

I generally iron once a month for about 4-5 hours and it's going to have to be today. I was hoping to get a good deal in the Sales but it looks like I'm in for a slow afternoon ironing with my old one.

From the sound of that you DEFINITELY need a steam generator then!
Maybe not this one, but they are ideal for big piles of ironing, there is a lot of time to save!

Make sure the ironing board is up to the job too (vented, with mesh) or it works less well, and also gets soaking/rusts!
