Ironing is one of those chores that most of us want to run for the hills. Invest in a decent iron and at least you’ll make quicker work of what can otherwise seem like the dullest household task going.
For the ultimate in speedy ironing, get a steam generator iron. Not only do they produce more steam than standard irons, but they don’t need refilling with water anywhere near as often.
But don’t just pick any old model. Your tick list should include a good lime scale filter, comfy handle, easy-to-fill tank, auto shut-off, a hassle-free power cord and thin soleplate that tapers at the nose.
Still not sure which brand or model to opt for? We’ve blitzed through mountains of clothes and fabrics of all types to bring you the very best steam generator irons on the market.
