Makes light of ironing

Advantages: Makes light of ironing, not too heavy, gives perfect results
Disadvantages: None for us

Ours is the Tefal FV 5370 iron and we use this together with another non-steam iron. I find ironing rather therapeutic and most Sundays I enjoy this pastime as I stand there for two ours or more whilst listening to sport on the radio. Until we had actua ...

Ironing Bored?

Advantages: Heats up to maximum temperature in under a minute, reasonably priced, easy to use and clean
Disadvantages: Water chamber leaks water if filled to maximum capacity, mains cord need to be a little longer
