Braun TexStyle 7 Pro Tefal FV4970
9 Reasons For
17% More Steam Generating Capacity

Automatic Shut Off System
The Braun TexStyle 7 Pro has an automatic shut off system, however the Tefal FV4970 does not.

'Automatic Shut Off System' denotes whether the iron has a safety system to automatically cut the power to the iron if it detects a fault (such as a power surge, wire fault, water leak, etc). It can also kill the power after a certain time, in cause you've left the iron unattended by accident.

An automatic shut off system helps keep you safe by removing the power during a potential accident, of if you leave the iron unattended.

Read more Read less | Edit
Non-Twisting Cord
The Braun TexStyle 7 Pro has a non-twisting cord, whereas the Tefal FV4970 does not.

Non-twisting cords are very helpful, since they make the iron easier to use.

Read more Read less | Edit
Bigger Water Tank Capacity
The Braun TexStyle 7 Pro is a 0.3 water tank capacity iron. That's 0.03L bigger than the Tefal FV4970 (0.27L).

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

Read more Read less | Edit
Self-Cleaning
The Braun TexStyle 7 Pro is a self-cleaning iron, whereas the Tefal FV4970 is not.

'Self-Cleaning' indicates whether the iron has a special cycle to clean itself after a set amount of time (e.g - 2 weeks). It works by flushing through the iron and soleplate with very hot water, removing any impurities that have built up.

A self-cleaning iron can help prolong the life of the appliance, and keep it in peak condition for longer.

Power

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

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.

Steam Generating Capacity

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

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.

Weight

'Weight' denotes how heavy the iron is, measured in grams (g).

A heavier iron can be an advantage as it makes it easier to press the clothes.

Water Tank Capacity

'Capacity' indicates how much water the iron can hold at a single time.

A bigger tank capacity means the iron can be used longer before it needs to be refilled with water.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these irons for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
