Welcome to beststeamgeneratoriron.co.uk. We are a website who are dedicated to bringing you information about steam generator irons on the market which is up to date, accurate and easily digestible.
I understand how difficult it is to choose a steam generator iron because I have been in your shoes. This website was built because over the past few years, the steam generator iron has grown a lot and there are a lot of new features and specifications to these newer models. There seemed to be a lot of jargon in the descriptions and on the websites of these companies which did not make a whole lot of sense for me.
I wanted to simply understand what were the main features to look for and how would they benefit me. With this website, I have curated the top selling models in the industry at the moment as voted for by hundreds/thousands of Amazon shoppers and broken each model down into exact details of what their specifications mean and what you should be looking for with each model. I’ve highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of each model which will hopefully give you a much better understanding of why some models are better than others and allow you to come up with a decision on the iron that is better for you.
For example, price is one of the main differentiating factor between the models available, and this is something I really didn’t understand when I first started looking at steam generator irons. The prices can run anywhere from as little as £29.99 up to £299.99 (some even more than this). My thoughts were how could one iron be worth 10x the cost of another iron. It wasn’t until I started getting into the minute detail that I realised that a lot of the more expensive irons had much more useful features and higher ‘horsepower’ so to speak than their cheaper counter parts.
Price is a difficult one because you want to avoid the cheap irons which will break down after a few weeks, but unless you’re flush with cash or looking for a top of the line, heavy duty model, I doubt you want to spend £300 on an iron, at least not without understanding why it costs £300 and whether the cost would benefit you enough to commit to the purchase.
For example, if we look at the Bosch TDS4571GB, it costs £470.37 on Amazon which is an astronomical amount of money to spend, but it has 6 bars of pressure and a steam boost of 400g. While very expensive, these sort of features would be extremely useful for someone who irons quite lot, perhaps a professional maid/cleaner or someone who lives in a family of 10+ people who can typically spend many hours per week doing the ironing.
The extra power which is just not available in smaller models can not only massively cut down on ironing time, but it can also make the job a hell of a lot easier.
This sort of price range is not for everyone and I’ve mostly covered irons in the £75-200 price range as I feel that in this price range you will get the best value for your money. If you’re so inclined though, do feel free to check out some of the cheaper/more expensive models and see what you think, you may find that they are more suited to your needs. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the site, and if you have any questions or queries do not hesitate to contact me.
