Found 28th Feb 2011
Reduced from £199 - £74
Does anybody know much about this - or other Steam Generator Irons? I have just had a Philips one catch fire believe it or not on me!!
However, I am now without an iron, and found the Steam Generator Irons so, so much easier to use when ironing compared to (say) a normal steam iron....

However, I digress! So, just seen this one on Bargain Crazy reduced,.... And wondered what if indeed anything - people thought....

I see that there was another on here recently from Tesco's but the price for that has just increased......

Any thoughts?

LOL!!!

I'm too lazy when it comes to jeans and things! But i take your point!.....

Got my 1st steam generator iron last week - I'm in love!!!!
I have 4 kids & iron @ least once a day so for me, I really should have bought 1 years ago.

I paid £99.99 for a Russell Hobbs

In what way are they better than a standard iron?

These irons are good, but when I got the wife one for her birthday two years ago she wasn't happy for some reason (although she spends hours messing about with it on a Sunday night, so she must like it really!).

The one I got her looked identical apart from the pink bits being blue, and it only cost £50 from TJ Hughes, supposedly half price.

LOL at some of these comments above!!!

I would sooooo LOVE to get "spoilt" and bought one!!! ROFL!! NOT!!!

Dont we just ironing!

RE: the comment about why they are better than a normal iron - principally because they produce steam under pressure - and that pressure is what make it so, so much easier to iron. If you have ever seen one of the pressurised Iron Pressers at a dry cleaners in action - well, they are like that but only a smaller version......

The pressurised steam makes creases so much easier to put in things like thick cotton shirts etc etc and makes day to day ironing so much quicker and easier......

Hmmmm.....might consider getting one then.

Caz, without ANY hesitation whatsoever, I would DEFINITELY buy another one - they are (or were until my Philips one blew up on me) FANTASTIC for cutting down the amount of time you spend ironing - everything is so, so much easier with these...... The trick is - I am told - to get one with as much pressure as possible........ :-)

Omg £100 on an IRON! You must have money to burn! I'll stick to the one my mother gave me...lol

only 69.99 plus 20% off tj hughes

i have the morpy richards one and its brilliant ( got it off a freecycler) will never go backto a standard one

NB - Make sure it's a PRESSURISED Steam Generator iron - I am not 100% certain that this one is???

If it isn't then, I can't comment - is the Morphy Richards post above pressurised??.....

I am beginning to confuse dot com myself here...... LOL!
;-)

Not bad but tefal have the market with these - best of the bunch and last for ever. Pity there are (were!) £225 but worth every pence imo.

Tefal???? Don't they make frying pans???? :-)

Yup, them'n:

Average price seems for have dropped for about 160 quid but they are the best on the market imo so the higher price is justified. Pity they never come on offer

Just watch out for the cost of replacing anti lime scale filters, I got a new one and within a short time needed a new filter which is not really expensive per untit but will soon add to the cost. Think most makes now do this though

Got this a couple of years ago... same price, so don't believe the inflated rrp. They're brilliant, but starting to fall apart now. Braiding coming off hose and descaling is a pain. Quite noisy as well. Would no way go back to a standard iron though.

(_;) This desca;ling business - i wonder if that is why my one caught fire???? LOL!! Doh!!! Just a thought?? Once you have had one - going back to a normal Iron is gonna be such a shame!
So, if I am gonna get another one, then an anti descaler is on the list of must have too then?

I work in a suit and having a good steam generator iron has given me a lot more free time -on average 2 hours of ironing a week instead of 4 (i have a Philips one though). They make a huge difference.
