1. Rowenta DG8760 Pro Perfect
This iron sails through crumpled laundry, even tough linen, with complete ease, which you'd hope, at this price.

3. Philips GC8560
Mountains of ironing to get through? This iron provides a constant flow of steam for 50 minutes, penetrating the toughest of fabrics.
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
Here's an iron that's simple to use and glides smoothly through laundry. The steam shot is reassuringly powerful, albeit noisy.
