Bit disappointed


Nice and light to use easy to fill,but doesn't steam as well as i would expect it to. Have to use the extra steam button on fabrics that crease a lot.

Essentials by Russell Hobbs 18485 Steam Iron


Unfortunately the iron would not steam,, and so had to be returned for exchange for another iron.

What you see isn't what you get!


This is a good little iron, light in weight and easy to use. However, the photo depicts the power lead coming from the "top" of the iron and in fact it comes from the bottom - the positioning of the mains lead was one of the reasons for my purchasing...

this iron is comparable to ones much dearer. the only downside is that the cord is only 2 mtrs long,whereas i have had to review my ironing area.but otherwise vry good.

ironing out a problem!


i do not like the iron i purchased...the steam buttons are hard to press and you have to put a lot of weight/pressure on to the iron when ironing clothes. even on damp clothes...worse product i have ever come across.

Lightweight iron


Not a bad iron - always takes a while to get used to a new one.

Russell Hobbs Iron


I would avoid this iron at all costs. It does not get very hot, therefore, not removing creases in garments. The steam output is the worst I have ever seen. I only used it for about 3 weeks and then bought another iron. I didn't return it back to store...
