I wish I hadn’t bought this now. I’ve just spent an hour doing my ironing, not my usual Saturday. On the other hand the ironing board was very sturdy. Even happy with the Phillips Azure Iron I bought from Costco early last year. First time it’s been used.
I've seen them many times, but they are over £70 or £80 on Amazon.
Feels really well made and sturdy. Good premium surface too. Never thought I'd be somewhat excited over an ironing board lol.
I’ll be getting one tomorrow.
In the cart!

I bought the exact same one on Amazon 2.5 years ago. We use it about twice a week for a small few items so take this with a pinch of salt. It replaced an expensive (>£150) Tefal steam generating iron that had eventually died after 6 years of service. Personally, I find it great. It heats up quite quickly, the steam from it is powerful enough for jeans and you get in a rhythm of ironing for a few seconds (generally feels like it was more than enough time), placing it back on the base, adjusting the item, and then reaching for the iron when you hear the click. I can use it with the base attached and it is then the exact same as a traditional iron, but it actually feels far less bothersome than traditional irons when using it as it is meant to be used as I no longer have to try to avoid a cable etc. I'm not saying it's completely groundbreaking, nor life-changing, but it has definitely made my life a little easier when ironing the few items I iron each week. It is also far smaller and easier to manage than the Tefal it replaced. I would replace this with the exact same model if it was to break.
I have just brought a cordless one not this brand though. You have to keep putting it back on the stand after around 8 seconds and it takes 6 again to charge. Not sure what I think of them wether its more of a hassle to keep waiting for it to charge. It would be interesting to see how long this stays charged for
Are these cordless ones any good or just a gimmick?

Morning hgx, I am here to answer any of your questions you may have about any of our products. Kind regards
It speaks. (shock)
Good morning mgarfy, I believe the weight to be roughly the same as a standard iron, which upon checking seems to be around the 1kg area. The weight of the whole appliance is 4.3kg if that helps. Kind regards
Anyone know if the actual iron is heavy or not?
At least Hughes is taking it seriously, some of the other deals are truly awful.
It can not cool down in few seconds as you’ve ironed a shirt. It the same like corded iron which is on/off due to thermostat, otherwise would burn...
The product would be so much better if it was battery powered, the moment you remove it from the base, the cool down begins so you have to keep replacing it. The convenience of not having to worry about the cable is replaced with the inconvenience of having to dock the iron to heat
Great iron, got it for more than half a year now, no problems at all. Don’t bother about this light/return to base reviews. Just put it to base between your clothes adjustment.
You didn’t think to return it? If you bought it last year, you may still be able to. (y)
I didn't buy this last year so don't know if it leaks
It was - then it wasn’t! It still a good iron, we just can’t fill it as much in case of inadvertent cover openings
I used it this morning and I'm impressed, although it's replaced a family heirloom..... I'm not sure if they have changed anything but the water cover was really secure..
Sure I paid £25 for this in Sainsbury’s before. Decent iron, but the water cap gave up an every time you iron it would flip up an dribble water everywhere. Other than that - a good iron. Bought a Philips recently and it’s not as good at all.
Hi, It's the Tefal FV2662 Ultraglide Anti-scale Steam... I picked one up earlier and I'll be using it in the morning... I'm hoping if there are any issues, I'll be able to iron them out early on (lol)
I bought this exact iron as a cheap temporary replacement for £250 Phillips iron around 11 years ago. I still use it today, and It's still going strong. The lead is shorter but a simple extension cord did the trick. I think I paid £10 from Curry's. It's been the bargain of the decade for me.
