You may recognise this model as the Tefal Ultraglide Diffusion 80. As we have no picture at present, the iron is constructed of white plastic with contrasting jade green transluscent water tank, filler and anti calcification valve. (quite an eyecatcher!)
The soleplate appears to be a cross between coated metal and ceramic.
The iron has all the usual function and controls including thermostat and associated indicator light, for selecting various heat settings. There is an additional "shot of steam" button for removing those stubborn wrinkles and the amount of steam produced by the normal ironing process can also be adjusted to suit conditions. The iron also has a spray button to moisten linen prior to ironing. The water filler tank is transluscent jade green with a clearly visible max fill level. The iron is suitable for tapwater use, which is a bonus.
As mentioned earlier, there is also an anti calcification valve, which i think protects the appliance from limescale damage, this valve requires monthly cleaning. There is also a self cleaning function which should be performed each month to prolong the life of the iron.
The electricity flex/cable is pivoted where it joins the main body of the iron, this is helpful whilst ironing. The iron also has a vertical ironing capability! The iron is very smooth to use and provides me with perfect results on all materials.
There is no cable storage facility, which would have made it perfect. it is electrically rated a 1800Watts (1.8Kw) I paid £19.99 for the item 2months ago at Woolworths. I am very pleased with my purchase.
