4. Lakeland Travel Steam Iron
Get fancy new holiday outfits crease-free with this compact travel steam iron, which gives surprisingly good results.
5. Tefal Aquaspeed Ultracord FV5260
Fed up with the cord getting in your way when you're ironing? Then here's an iron for you.
6. Morphy Richards 4221 Power Stream Elite
This iron might look like a beast that weighs a ton, but it's surprisingly lightweight – and impressive.

8. Breville VIN212
