It started one day when my old steam iron decided not to heat up! The jeans I was ironing looked as creased when I had finished, as before I had begun! So before it turned into a week where everything stopped working, off I went to my local Tesco store to see what was on offer there.
I looked at the various priced, state of the art , hi tech irons on display, and was not sure what to do, then I saw this basic steam iron on offer for under £5. White with a blue water chamber, it looked ok, so I bought it! I mean could I go wrong with that? I even got points on my tesco card!
It seems that I got a bargain! A steam iron that is light weight, has variable steam control with spray and powersteam buttons, nice length cord, a temperature dial that goes from Acrylic to Linen/ one dot to three, and it suits me being a left hander as its got a swivelling cord protector!
I have been using my iron for over a month, I have used it dry and with steam, and I have just tried the Self Cleaning facility. I found it very effective, the instructions in the accompanying manual made it simple enough for even me to follow! It also fits nicely on my ironing board, unlike some!
I think that this lightweight iron would be good for the elderly, who have difficulty lifting the huge models which are more common thesedays, so grannies and elderly aunties Christmas prezzies maybe?
Students (yes I know you don't iron unless you have to) there is no excuse that they cost too much, and who knows when an ironed shirt might help with a job (or a date)! I might even put one in my teenager sons stocking!
Anyway as you have probably realised I am a big fan of my little iron, and if for any reason it feels at all under the weather during this first year, I can just take it back to Tesco with my receipt, as it has a 12 month warranty.
If ever an iron is designed to work without my having to attach myself to it, will someone let me know? Till then I will carry on as I am!
