Crease free: 10 best irons

None of us love ironing, but if you’ve got to put the hours in, it’s worth investing in a perfect presser.

TV presenter Kirstie Allsopp recently said that she likes to do the ironing because she finds it 'therapeutic'. While most of us do not feel such joy in our hearts at the sight of a high pile of crumpled clothes in the laundry basket, it’s a job that has to be done.

From futuristic irons such as the Morphy Richards Comfigrip to  steam generators like the Hoover Ironspeed, we have tackled our own piles of ironing to see how they fare.

Curry's Logik L200IR12 is a bargain at under a tenner and will do nicely for the basics. Meanwhile, the Tefal Freemove is a good option if you’re always battling with the cord. For steam generators, Hoover Ironspeed is a long-standing favourite for a reason and Russell Hobbs Easy Store Plug & Wind is a fantastic all-rounder.
