Good quality, easy to set up, heats quickly and irons effectively. Lightweight iron makes ironing easier - you don't need a heavy iron if the steam output is sufficient to deal with creases and this one has steam to spare. Water tank lasts ages before needing to be refilled, which you can do while you continue to work. Comes with three anti scale filters to last you the first few months at least and copes with hard water without the iron scaling up.
The colour! Seriously needs a more understated and classy appearance! Doesn't affect its performance, though.
The Morphy Richards 42288 is good quality, value for money. Replaced more expensive model from the Bosch range which let me down badly so much happier with this one. Comes with a two year guarantee as standard - no extra charge. Registering guarantee online was simple.
Recommended for us with mesh-based ironing board to get maximum advantage of the high steam output - it will iron both sides of the item and you need only use a little steam to do it. The iron reverts to being a dry iron at the touch of the switch, so you can iron the garment dry once you've given it a blast with the steam.
