“I Love my DeLonghi Steam Ironing System”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by DeLonghiFan (1 review written)

I have had it for three years and use it so often. I would not iron without it anymore … It is a waste of time using ordinary steam irons. I have read where people are having problems with it continually steaming ?? Mine started doing that - so I took it to my laundry sink and flushed it. Filled it with water - shook and dumped it out. I was getting all sorts of calcium deposits from the hard water - and praying that I found the problem.. Well Yes - after cleaning it out and then letting it… Read Full Review

What's with this company? My first Stirella Ironing System stopped steaming after a few weeks and the replacement has never steamed. The filter light is on, as it was with the first one. I even regenerated the NEW filter and rinsed the steam generator, as recommended in the instructions. Filter light is still on and still no steam!!!!

As with all reviews- started going wrong after 6 months. Steam became continuous then stopped altogether, after leaving marks on clothes.
No hope of a refund from John Lewis or the manufacturer, who's gone bust I believe. Very frustrating as it was so expencive… Read Full Review

My experience confirms the other revues. Great while new, now constantly steaming & leaving dirty marks on everything, including the floor. The waranty is now out of date & repairs are at a high cost. John Lewis, for the first time ever, you have let me & others down.Simac, please test your appliances vigorously before sale… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2010

After my first one sprung a leak after 3 months and the company would not fix I dumped it on a sales desk in John Lewis, who after lots of hesitation replaced it. Then to my horror the new one lasted exactly 18 months and died and as warranty only 1 year John Lewis not liable and DeLongi put you in touch with a local company, who advised me to bin it! Currently using an old faithful Philips.

After sales shocking and cant believe John Lewis are still endorsing this product… Read Full Review

Very expensive but does not last. Good at first and then same problems as other reviewers. Steam button sticking so cannot turn steam off. Spitting. Will not buy another Stirella iron.

Will look for cheap makes and replace them… Read Full Review

I bought this iron as I was sick of conventional steam irons not being up to steam production without dropping black water onto clothes after 6 months use .....however, even though I paid a stupid amount of money for this product and it DID work well for 18 months .....it then started to drip and now it is stuck permanently on steam and I wish I had not bothered ...........waste of money - keep buying cheap ones and change them every 6 months is my recommendation… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2010

Like so many others here - it performed well for about 6 months. Then dirty water, intermittant steam and now leaking steam from the base unit. Can't find the manual and, out of warranty, the repair will be half the original cost.

Who can recommend a replacements as I won't buy another of this make. Expensive rubbish - can't believe John Lewis recommended… Read Full Review

Had for just over a year, continuously on steam now. Bought from John Lewis. Will now have to bin it

One bad feature is that the iron does not clip onto the unit when putting it away. I burnt myself very badly when the iron slid off the unit. Had to have my hand dressed every day for a month… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/10/2009

Bought after seeing at John Lewis demonstration, first one had to be returned as spewing out water, now just out of warranty the iron intermitently stops steaming, and is continuously projecting dirty water over clean clothes. I can't believe a shop like John Lewis is STILL selling such expensive rubbish. I have a Laurastar at another house which is at least ten years old with no problems at all, looks like I'll be buying another one of those. DON'T BUY A STIRELLA you'll be wasting your money… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2009 by dhayes22 (54 reviews written)

This is a great iron. Not exactly designed for travelling with but if you do lots of heavy-duty washing and tumble drying and/or you iron a lot of heavy cotton shirts and like to have the 100% crease-free look this is a great iron. It's not cheap and it's not quiet exactly and it's a bit unwieldy if, like me, you live in a small flat but it gives much better results than a normal iron… Read Full Review

Had to pay £70 to have the lead re-insulated and now it is spitting out filthy brown water, causing me to have to re-launder clothes. Expensive iron for 2 years use. Spend your money elsewhere.
