Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is a steam generator iron?
AA steam generator iron has a separate base that generates the hot steam - rather than generating it inside the iron. This means the actual iron is lighter and easier to use, and more steam can be generated quicker. However they tend to be more expensive, and are bulkier as a whole, since the generator is large and unwieldy.
QWhat is a vertical steam function?
AA vertical steam function allows a jet of steam to be shot upwards from the front of the iron. This is useful for steaming hanging clothes.
QWhy is a pointed tip useful?
APointed tips are useful for getting the iron into creases, under collars, and generally into all the nooks and crannies of the clothing.

Iron Buying Guide

Irons are something of a necessity if you want to make sure that your shirts or dresses are neatly pressed, look professional, and are free of any untidy-looking creases or wrinkles. Irons work by heating and loosening the molecules that make up polymer fabrics, making it temporarily more malleable. The weight of the iron and the motion of ironing stretches the material, removing the creases, and the fabric retains its new shape once it cools.

We have a wide variety of irons from many different makers, but it can be hard to choose the model exactly right for you. Here are the two main varities of iron:

loading image

Dry Irons: These are the standard type of iron you're likely to encounter - a wedge-shaped metal plate is heated up to high temperatures, which is then used to press clothes to remove creases. These irons tend to be cheaper than more advanced models, but may not proper handle all different types of clothing.

Steam Generator Irons: These are similar to dry irons, but have a reservoir of water that is built into the iron. This is heated up, generating steam that is dispensed through the hot metal plate on the base of the iron. The steam is necessary for some fabrics such as cotton, which will not react well to dry ironing. However they tend to be more expensive than standard dry irons.

Steam Generator Irons: These are similar to steam irons, but the device that generates the steam is held in a separate device. This quickly generates a large amount of steam, which is then fed into the iron when it's placed onto the generator. This allows the iron itself to be lighter than other steam irons, since it only needs to hold the steam, not generate it. It also allows a far greater amount of steam to be generated quicker. However they are the most expensive type of iron, and as a whole are far bulkier.

Some models of steam irons have a water tank that either has a wide mouth, or is entirely removable. These both serve to make the iron easy to refill, and reduce the risk of splashes and accidents when using it.

Temperature Control

Most more advanced irons - especially steam irons - have a temperature setting installed on them. This allows the user to maintain a constant temperature for both the metal plate and the steam. This is important because different types of fabrics have different temperature requirements for most effective ironing - it also serves to reduce the risk of damaging or burning delicate clothing.

Steam/Pointed Tip

Irons are usually shaped like a wedge - however some models have an especially pointy tip, which can be useful for getting under buttons, into corners, and generally making sure all parts of the fabric have been taken care of. More advanced models may also have a 'steam tip' - a special steam dispenser in the tip, which can send a burst of steam through the fabric. This is useful for ironing out stubborn creases.

loading image

Limescale Filter

Limescale buildup is a problem of frequently used irons, and can reduce the life of your device. Therefore looking for an iron that has a limescale filter built into it can help elongate the life of the appliance, especially if you plan on using it very regularly.

Iron Retailers, Prices and Features

Iron Prices

We currently list 460 irons ranging from £10 to £520. A new iron costs on average £62 and 80% of irons are priced between £18 and £129. The Russell Hobbs 22470 is the cheapest iron at only £10, and Philips GC9682/86 is the most expensive at £520.

The top three iron brands are Morphy Richards, Philips and Tefal. Morphy Richards has an average rating of 93%, Philips has an average rating of 87% and Tefal has an average rating of 87%.

Biggest Iron Retailers

The biggest iron retailer by number of products currently for sale is Amazon UK. We found 361 current iron offers from Amazon UK. The second biggest retailer is eBay with 343 offers. That means Amazon UK is slightly bigger than eBay when it comes to irons. ao is the third biggest retailer with 59 current offers.

When Are Most New Irons Released?

September to November is the most common period for new irons to be released in. If you wait until September 2018 then you might be able to get better features on your iron. Alternatively you might be able to buy one of the current irons cheaper in September once the latest models have been released. The biggest month last year for new iron releases was November, with 27 new irons released that month. September was the biggest month in 2016 for new irons, with 111 new irons released that month. 57 new irons were released in January 2015 making it the biggest month that year for new iron releases.

How Fast Do Iron Prices Drop After Release?

On average irons drop in price by 3% in the first 6 months after release. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £2 on a typical £62 new iron by waiting 6 months before buying.

Powers

'Power' denotes the power level of the iron, measured in Watts (W).

The powers of irons range from 375W to 3,200W. The powers of most irons range from 2,300W to 2,500W. The Siemens TB603010, which is available at £106.23, has the biggest power and is a 3,200W iron. The Duronic Si2 Mini, which is available at £19.99, has the smallest power and is a 375W iron.

A more powerful iron means that the device will be able to iron clothes more efficiently, get out more stubborn creases, and generally be far more helpful.

Available Colours

White is the most frequently found colour amongst new irons. We found 387 irons that are irons that have a White coloured. The second most common colour amongst new irons is blue. We found 215 irons that are irons that have a blue coloured.

Types

The way the iron works - either a traditional iron with a small reservoir for steam, or a 'steam generator', with a separate reservoir for larger amounts of steam.

We found 460 irons that are traditional irons, which makes traditional the most common type amongst new irons. We found 155 irons that are steam generator irons, making this the second most common type amongst new irons.

Steam Generating Capacity

'Steam Generating Capacit' indicates how much steam the iron is capable of generating, measured in grams per minute (g/min).

The steam generating capacity of irons range from 6g/min to 500g/min. The steam generating capacity of most irons range from 30g/min to 50g/min. The iron with the most steam generating capacity is the Tefal GV 9071, which is a 500g/min steam capacity iron and is priced at £186.34. The iron with the least steam generating capacity is the Igenix IG3112, which is a 6g/min steam capacity iron and currently retails for £12.95.

A larger steam flow means that the iron is capable of more powerful steam blasts for longer, meaning the iron is more efficient at tackling stubborn creases and difficult fabrics.

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying irons. For each retailer it shows the total number of irons where they currently have a market leading price.
