Does exactly what it says on the tin!! Ironing in half the time, have been searching for this iron for all of my ironing life! Have tried many other makes and got through at least five Tefals, none of which perform like this. It really is light and...

A bit big to store but small price to pay.

easy to use, light, consistent steam output, holds lots of water, easy symbols. Haven't had to clean it yet, so can't comment on this. Almost a pleasure to iron!

None, yet. Except perhaps because of its size, its difficult to place on the ironing board, but I put it on a stool next to the board which works well.

Powerful steam, ease of use, good water tank capacity

Central contol is "flimsy" - feels loose

Makes ironing fast and easy

It's a bit noisy. Also would benefit from a spray feature
