Thought this might be useful for those that are serious about ironing!

If you factor in the free ironing board that you claim back it makes the iron not too bad and comparable to a high end non-steam generator.

Iron must be purchased BY 24/07/15 and claim must be submitted BY midnight on 25/08/15. I expect lots of cold votes but hope that this helps someone!

The free ironing board deal only became live 11 days ago, so the £119 price that it was in April wouldn't be eligible for this promotion.
The iron is still £199.99 in Argos argos.co.uk/sta…htm

Think they are price matching this business?

Bosch are supposed to be a really good brand, so it's got me interested too.
Just debating whether to stick with a cheap ironing board and iron or take the plunge and go for this.
I only tend to iron 5 shirts a week so deciding whether this would be overkill or not..

Employ someone to do your ironing for you.

If that's all you're ironing I'd save your money. These are only useful to those who have large piles of ironing. like myself family of 6 and I hate ironing so much I let it pile up. saying that mine is a bosch steam generator and I love it but I think I've abused it too much and will soon be needing a new one. This deal just seems a bit too expensive for me though unfortunately. I need to go away and do my sums.

I'm a bit confused do you get the £69.99 back effectively making this deal about £60? If so then this is hot. where does it say you'll get a free ironing board though?

That there got to be the coolest looking ironing board.

Can be bought for under £100 elsewhere and the £69.99 for iron board is a joke cold from me

Just reading the reviews on here:
johnlewis.com/bos…427

The deal is with other suppliers too.

If anyone by any chance wants to buy 3, you get 1 free when you use the "HNG4FOR3 " code

Telling us where from would be helpful? Otherwise it's a pointless comment. With regards to ironing boards, there's ironing boards, and there's ironing boards.... If you catch my drift.

Good deal.

I was going to buy, but reviews on John Lewis are very poor

Same here... reviews put me off.. however it is a good price for the product thus heat has to be given on that

had a similar model which was great whilst it worked. Developed a leak however, just after its warranty expired so wouldn't buy another one

Hot deal for me.
Cold for any reviewers who put tap water in a steam iron and then not expect issues
Even with a filter why would you risk getting a chalky mess on your clothes, when getting distilled/deionised water from a garage is such an simple way of ensuring a good working iron?
As for the ironing board - it's good of someone to post an attractive photo of a Bosch Active ironing board - selling for around £140 - but not sure what it has to do with the board offer worth £69?
I can't see what board is being supplied and it you're getting steam generator for doing big piles of ironing then I would need to know all about the board I was getting.
I would need to know that I was getting a board that would make that big ironing easier to do e.g. the Philips Easy 8 board is ridiculously expensive, but the retractable "wings" make shirt ironing so much easier, that a silly one off expense is actually worth it IMO - as usual, cheap versus value can be debated.

Sadly that's not the free ironing board you will get. It's this one:

Here's links to the free board (model TDZ2595) and the offer from Bosch (as mentioned by OP):

Heat for a product with steam in the title that isnt a video game....bored to my back teeth of wading through those deals...!

Crikey, looks like it was made in 1956 X) If you want a steam generator go for the Philips PerfectCare range. One temperature does all and that saves a LOT of time and eliminates the risk of burning your clothes.

I'm using [url=Philips GC8638/20]this one[/url] at the moment and it is superb

It looks like something that Darth Vader would iron his outfit with, but strangely I'm okay with that.

My honest opinion. My other half is now on her 6th, yes 6th, one of these (2 irons in 2 years, 4 irons in the next 2 years)... all with the same fault. After 6-8 months iron spews out steaming hot water from the soleplate and brown dirty stain marks on clothes. Health hazard as well as damaged clothes.

The iron maual specifies to ONLY use tap water NOT distilled as mentioned above. Sadly we are now out of our 2nd warranty and even though we have complained, goods not fit for purpose - inherent fault etc etc, Bosch pretty much said on yer bike. The last time it went was 21 months into the 2 year warranty. Bosch sent us out this exact model - brand new - which lasted a good... 6 months before it developed the same fault yet again.

2 weeks ago we gave up on Bosch after they kindly offered us the new white model, at a very kind concessionry offer of £160 (although the same model is £150 on Amazon), to which we said poke it.

She has now purchased a Tefal, which has got the best reviews across the board, and she is much happier with it. Dont get me wrong this one might go the same way (hard water area), but lets see how Tefal fair up in terms of good customer service and durability. Time will tell!

Bosch have lost a very loyal customer with how they have dealt with this matter.

I'd suggest that you purchase using something like the American Express gold card (free for first year) or Nationwide flex plus account (£10 month but loads of other benefits) That way if it breaks just outside warranty it's not dead money.

My dad had a Tefal and used regular water, it spewed out brown gunk too which stained clothes and died after 2 years (just outside warranty). Good luck with your new one though, maybe try the distilled water thing to preserve it (or 50/50 with tap water as I've read on some reviews which prevents problems too)

Good advice m8 (although your quote i had to edit coz i forgot about the 1st 2 years we had one lol) so changed to correct 6 lol !

Ill pass on the message to her.

Too many on the Amazon Warehouse site, this is never a good sign, way too many returns.

Same price in Tesco but included in the Clubcard Boost for anyone with points to spend.

Doesn't matter if out of warranty. You'll be covered under Sale of Goods act. If you're spending that kind of money in an iron it should last long after warranty.

I've used Philips for the past few years and they've been great, especially the abuse they get with the amount of ironing that's done in our house.
Just got this one:

I got it much cheaper than this, and the beauty of it is that it knows what you are ironing and quickly adjusts the temp to suit the material. My wife was dubious about it but had a go on a silk shirt and it was great. Also, all you do is put it face down on the ironing board, adjusts automatically so it doesn't burn. Really is a clever piece of technology.

I thought the same. I have a 3 yrs old now Bosch and I regret I didn't send it back straight away. It's rubbish
My regular iron 9 yrs old Phillips is miles better, hotter with stronger steam power.

ready to pay £1000 , if ironing is done automatically

Way back in September last year there was a deal posted here for this iron at £109 from AO.com with a £50 cashback. That made it just £59 and AFAIAA this product is discontinued (?)
It's a nice iron if you haven't got a steam generator, and I think the problems are from people living in hard water areas and the valves being blocked.
£129 for this and a poky ironing board seems a pretty poor deal after that.

TBH I've never rated Bosch products, it was many many years ago when they actually used to make decent stuff now it all seams sub-par quality. All the power tools/ Hoover's that my work has purchased from Bosch seam the same - they look stylish/modern, but reliability has been below average.

Last time I used one steam iron with steam inside, it blew my house fuse with a loud bang. I have never thought of buying one since. I only iron my son's outfit for concerts. PERIOD! Always buy drip dry ...

I have one of these and it is fine when it works. But I live in a hard water area so have to descale often. Once every 4-6 months. Add vinegar and warm (not boil!) overnight. Also you need to empty the unit of water once or twice a week. The calc and clean is a joke (shake it and hope the scale falls out!) The tefal units have limescale cartridges to remove the scale.

The bosch approach is that users are supposed to empty all water from the unit. This is a good idea as limescale builds up only when the unit has cooled so using the iron, letting it cool and emptying it does make sense. But its a faff! Plus empting the unit when hot is dangerous.

If you can live with the downsides, these are great irons but there is a bit of work. To be fair the time you save on ironing is huge so I should not grumble


Mine is 2 years works like new. I had the brown muck etc but a bottle of cheap spirit vingear go shot of that!
