We can’t say we’ve ever given much thought to how irons look but this one certainly has style. It comes in a pale blue, rose gold and our favourite, a space-age grey, and its hip retro appeal certainly brightens up the drudgery of ironing. Apart from its good looks, this iron’s generous water tank is its biggest selling point. It has the largest capacity of any we tested which means less refilling when working through a mammoth laundry load. We also loved the fact the steam output gets slightly louder when the water level is low to take away the guesswork. It takes longer to warm up than many but once it’s hot, we found the best results came once the dial was turned to the three-dot setting to release steam. It can also be used as a dry iron and there are vertical steam and self-clean settings. The double ceramic soleplate tackled most creases well and there’s a water spray function when you need extra muscle so we didn’t miss not having an extra shot of steam. A water jug and heat-resistant silicone pad to rest the iron on are included in the price."
