Just bought one of these. Absolutely brilliant!! Tries the in laws £100+ model and there's no difference!

Sorry for being thick but how does this differ from a standard steam iron?

That's good to hear that they are good. I've bought one too, but so busy these days, that it's not even left the box yet.

All I can tell you is what my friend tells me, apart from being blummin brilliant, she tells me that she literally just glides hers over once and the job is done! I hate ironing, so if it really is that good, maybe it won't be so much of a chore.

Anyone know if this is a "one day only" deal, or whether it will still be on today?

Got one at lunch time at Castle Bromwich - so this is still on.

comes with a 3 Year warranty which is a bonus as non of these steam irons ever last that long.

I got one of these from Aldi about 3 years ago and it's still going strong. My one is a different model (digital display, smaller water tank by the looks of things) but as ever with anything from Aldi the build quality will be A1.

You still have to iron clothes but it is more effective; as witchywoo says above, it's quicker as 99% of garments are done with one pass of the iron. I like the fact that I can use it to iron out creases on suit jackets etc while still on the hanger. It doesn't even have to touch the fabric; the pressure of the steam will remove creases as you pass it across.

I have tried branded models that cost 4 or 5 times more than his and there is no difference - only the satisfaction of knowing I got a bargain.

Finally, Aldi never quibble with a warranty in my experience. In fact I always ask "Do you get many of these coming back?" when buying anything there and I always get an honest response. Buy it, staple the receipt to the user manual and put in your drawer of death at home.

Hi,glad you got one! It's not a one day deal but they do have limited stock with their offers. They sell until they sell out, but some things do go really fast so if you really want something you have to get there as soon as you can. Hope this helps for any future offers you spot.

Serious question, I'm finding this difficult so bear with me >

Are these irons affected by hard water? I live in a hard water area and everything the water touches is covered in calcium deposits.

Thanks for tip, although I only have man drawer at home, fortunately this iron won't fit in there. I'd hate for someone to visit, open the man drawer and find an iron in there, my reputation would be in tatters.

I bought 1 in the Handsworth - Sheffield branch - and they had HEAPS left! :-D I'm actually proper excited to go and try it out now...DH called me a Saddo (quite rightly!) Simple things...

Just bought one in Reading (the store near Dawsons & the north station car park). Three left, but of course they may have more to put out. Possible they've put returns out as well, so check inside the box and make sure everything's where it should be, not rattling around with no packaging!

Oh I've been pondering over this for days all the while the ironing is piling up!
Think I may pay my local Aldi a visit tomorrow
Anything that makes ironing easier has got to be worth a try

Bought one this week in Market Harborough branch - excellent value for money. It is lightqweight and easy to use, brilliant steam, super-quick ironing, single glide over clothes, even those which were over-dry, no need to iron both sides either. Have had another more expensive model in the past, this one from Aldi is much better. One thing I thought might be a disadvantage is that you have to wait for the iron to cool down before you can top up the water tank during an ironing session - however, the tank holds 800ml and lasted for ages, easily long enough for two very large baskets of ironing. Would recommend it.

Is anyone else having to wait ages for the boiler to heat up. Not 5/6 minutes but over 20. Am I doing something wrong. Have followed instructions

Just bought one but cant get the iron to heat up - it says to press the small button, but not really a button?? Any idea? Ta

Ok managed to get it working - the instructions about what buttons r what r wrong!! Anyway, started ironing but steam everywhere and it ran out within minutes - don't think mine is working properly somehow - any tips. The small button which u cannot press - no light comes on or off (the one by the steam white knob) ??

Boston Aldi have them back in stock, this is my first steam generator iron and it's great, it worked perfectly within minutes and just glided over my clothes.

Most boxes seemed to be open though (perhaps returns).

I'm wanted a steam generator iron for a while but I was put off by the prices, I mean come on who wants to spend a minimum of £100 on an iron, so really very happy to get one that works so well so cheap.

Thanks everyone for the recommendation.

just bought one but no manual. Requested one but not arrived. Please can anyone scan and email me a copy of theirs?

I bought one of these irons and I was so excited, but find it catches on clothes, I cannot now get the plate clean. I have been ironing with steam irons for FIFTY YEARS and I am bitterly disappointed. I find it rather cumbersome . The iron itself is good and light but I have I cannot seem to get the temperature right

Mine is staining clothes?

Just got one lol it was priced up wrong just paid £7.49 it better last three years at that price
