My first post..... Just ordered one of these. Also available for same price at Dixons. P&P free on both sites. Previously £199.99! Cheapest elsewhere for same model £99 at Comet (all reviews on their site for this product are 5 out of 5) & still £149 on Amazon.

Hate ironing, so hopefully this'll make it less of a chore.

Voted hot - The same model in Comet is £189.99, not £99.99 - this is a sweet deal !

Big companies playing games with RRPs .... and a squillion different model numbers makes comparison more difficult. Bought one of these (or visually identical) from Argos at that price in June - but it has now apparently jumped in price ;o(

Nice piece of kit, but be aware that you will need to use 50% de-ionised water if you live in a hard-water area like me - water from condensors is specifically advised against (unless youcan filter our all the "bits").

That makes the running costs quite high ..... you really don't want to be paying the ridiculous prices they want for new filters or clogging up the heating element -but it's the same for all steam generators it seems.

Me and the Wife are after a new Steam Generated Iron, and this seems more sturdy than the Morphy Richards one we had that broke. Nice find OP have some heat..

Thanks very much for this - heat added. These are excellent steam generator irons at a very keen price. Not that I know much about ironing, but there is an expert in my house who knows about these things, and reckons these are the best ones she's ever used. Far better made and much more powerful than the Morphy Richards/Russell Hobbs/Swan ones, which lack steam power and all seem to pack up just after the warranty expires.

Just returned yet another Morphy Richards steam generator so am really pleased with this deal ,wasnt sure whether to go for the other BOSCH TDS2561 £99.00 - which does have 5 star reviews ?

I'm so glad I'm not the only one struggling with Morphy Richards - I'm on my second one and their customer service is awful. Mine was in guarantee and they said it was my fault! Would never recommend them.... tempted on this one now!

Hot find, gets 4.7 out of 5 from 98 reviews at Argos where it retails for £199.99

...and 3% Quidco (equiv to £2.40), even better.

I know they are the same company,but Dixons online also have then should Currys run out. But then again as I type,they prob come from the same wharehouse!

Good post as I wanted one,but I wasn't going to pay full rrp. Ordered thanks.

Great offer just ordered one, thanks for the post very much appreciated

This is a v good iron. I paid £99 for it just after Christmas 2009, and it was on sale then.

Looks like a great steam iron. But, I do not have any spare rooms to store this thing. Look at the size of it!

Nice one, ordered one! Many Thanks!

Ordered and reserved! Excellent find! Thanks

Good deal this been and collected today.The wife was well impressed when I walked in and said I had a present for her oO

Using water from my Britta Filter in Mine - did it for years with my last Tefal one and never had to change the filter.

Hmm ... caveat emptor. From the Brita website: "BRITA water is preferable to tap water for use in steam irons. However most steam irons recommend de-mineralised water for optimum performance." - That's why I suggested 50% de-ionised water.

I'm glad you've not had a problem, but in my area even a new Brita filter can't remove the visible limescale and my kettle still has builds a (minimal) deposit on the element ...... but I can use vinegar to remove the limescale in the kettle!

Or you could produce your own distilled water with something like this:

I picked up a cheap one and it's excellent for the job.

The Bosch arrived today, by the way. Quick work by Currys, and thanks again to the OP.
