Steam press

Like: Easy to use cuts down on ironing time. Dislike: quite heavy

By mrs anne-marie hamill on 13-Oct-2016


Recommended

Excellent press for my purposes, with normal iron style adjustment. I find it easy to use with good sized water reservoir and not too bulky or heavy.

By M Pedrana on 29-Jul-2016


The best!

This is simply the best item i have ever purchased. Easy to use and quick and i cannot now imagine being without one now.

Cut down ironing time.

It has cut the ironing time. The only thing I would have changed is the size as this size does not quite fit the full width of the polo shirts.

You need a strong back for this one

I bought his item last year mainly because I have a problem with my back and cannot stand for too long. It takes some getting used to and how best to feed clothes into it such as trousers and fiddly things like blouses. My main problem is the weight. It weighs 15kg and is quite difficult for me to manage on my own. Would be perfect if you had a utility room where it could be left on the work surface all the time. I did have some problems with it when it wouldn't heat up. I spoke to the distributor and they tried to advise me on the phone and having tried all their suggestions without success, they arranged to collect and return ASAP. They did this very quickly, but I have no idea what was wrong with it as I didn't hear from them again.

Thoroughly recommended.

A real time saver and a neat product. Thoroughly recommended.

By Ardnashiel. on 30-Jul-2015


Great!

Great job so much easier than using an ordinary iron. Doesn"t seem like work. Takes a few minutes to heat up and quite heavy too lift but apart from that great.

A press for everyone

This is an excellent product. It is robust yet very attractive. It is simple to operate and does everything what one might want of a press. Locate at work bench height and it is comfortable to operate.

By J. Smed on 07-Mar-2015


easy to use

Does what it says on the tin, easy to use, fantastic results

By Stephen Skwarnecki on 13-Jan-2015


Greatly reduces ironing time

This has proved a great benefit during the b&b season, reducing my ironing time. Wish it was a bit wider, but it has been easy to get to know and use.

By Helen Stephenson on 12-Jan-2015


Works a treat

Nice iron takes a while to get how to use it but once you do it's great

By Mr. J. Pacey on 02-Nov-2014


Would buy this again / recommend to a friend

I haven't had this long but it compares very favourably with my previous machine. Good, sturdy quality. Works perfectly so far.

By Yvonne Attridge-Hall on 15-Oct-2014


Handy

This is a very handy little machine. My only complaint, it takes a lot of practice to get it right, but I suppose that's to be expected! If it could be simplified I'd give it the fifth star.

By Ronald Maxwell on 14-Oct-2014


excellent

Fantastic would not be without it now, Delivery was quick, it came the next day, cannot fault anything, would recommend to others no problem.

By Christine Davies on 06-Oct-2014


Great purchase

Really effective, dramatically reduces ironing time and makes a lovely job. I still iron shirts with the traditional iron and board but otherwise everything goes through the fast press. I have superkingsize bedding which has been a major pain to iron, with the fast press its done in under a minute.

By Caroline MacDonald on 21-Jul-2014


My new hobby - IRONING!

How I wish I had bought this years ago - ironing has become easier and even fun. Items like bed linen - fitted sheets, pillowcases and even king-size duvet covers receive a thorough ironing and look so much better than with an ordinary steam iron. The only problem I have is the weight but overall this apparatus is well worth the money.

By C. A. Picken on 14-Jul-2014


Love it!

I hate ironing. In fact I hate it that much for every six things I iron I have a glass of wine. After 24 things I don't care what it looks like. Action had to be taken. First of all. Delivery fantastic. Emailed a week in advance and said I was only home the following Tuesday. They replied within 2 hours guaranteeing delivery on that day and they were right it arrived while I was home. Secondly instructions are readable and understandable. Set it up tonight and in 15 minutes I ironed 12 pillowcases, four sheets and 2 duvet covers. Am well impressed. Bad points I only managed one glass of wine.

FAST PRESS STEAM IRON

I spent a long time going through all the reviews for iron presses to try to find the "right one for me". I even spoke to the distributor about some things not mentioned in the product information. They recommended this model as they thought it would be best since I do quite a lot of ironing (more than average apparently). Found out that most Iron presses come from China - this one is German and is what sold it to me as the after sales service is apparently so much better than the others. A point worth mentioning. I am still getting used to using it - it does take time to work out the best way to move the items about especially things with curved edges like sleeves etc. Double size and bigger Sheets and duvet covers are quite tricky as you have to feed them to the back of the machine and pull them towards you as you press. The DVD and instructions recommend that "4 layers" are the maximum for best results, so with sheets & duvets you can either fold into four or two whichever suits best but you will need to turn it round or over to do the other edge. Any creases in the material will be pressed in, so it pays to spend a bit of time folding properly. The item is quite heavy (14kg net wt.) which is a bit of a problem for me as I have a bad back which is the main reason for getting an iron press, so that I wouldn't have to stand for too long. I can now sit down to iron which is a real bonus. Great for ironing T-shirts, tops, skirts, even jeans, but you definitely need the steam for those. The steam only works on the maximum heat settings, but you can always spray the item with water first - it comes with a spray. They recommend you use distilled water or bottled water (especially in hard water areas) but you can also used boiled, cooled water from the kettle. Filling is a bit tricky - they supply a funnel which is supposed to stop overflow when filling, but it didn't work for me. You just have to be careful not to overfill, but as there is no water level indicator, it is difficult to judge. There is no stand for this model - you need a sturdy table or worktop. Also supplied are a spare cover and foam. Overall, I am quite pleased with the item and I think that once I am more used to using it, I would not be without it.

Ironing is a breeze

This was quite a bit more expensive than the press I have used for the last 8 years. Having read the reviews I decided to buy it as it addressed some of the short comings of the cheaper press that needed replacing. This is certainly a lot better quality both in the buils and operation. The stream is very efficient and I have noticed clothes are less likely to wrinkle with this machine and there is more room at the hinge side for bulky items such as sheets.

By Colin on 08-Nov-2013


Fantastic service

The supply was next day. The telephone support was incredibly good. The product superb. I wish I could give more stars.

By John Ridgway on 17-Nov-2018


Steam Press Fine but....

Steam press works well, gives a nice result. The adjustable stand however is rubbish, lasted all of 30 seconds before gears packed up, did email company, have received no replay.

By Maurice Cooper on 08-Nov-2018

Mega steam press 64cms

I am pleased with this machine. I bought it mainly for ironing sheets, which it does well and cuts pressing time in half. I would recommend it.

By Gwen Armour on 26-Oct-2018

By Sharon Kerns on 23-Oct-2018


Ironing press and stand

First time user of a steam press and instructions were clear. Did actually half the time of conventional ironing with excellent results. Would recommend this to everyone. Delivery was within two days of ordering (ordered on a Sunday!). All in all an excellent buying experience.

By Richard Whitehouse on 22-Oct-2018


Great machine

Works very well. I pressed 14 pairs of trousers in 30 minutes to test it out. I agree with a previous review that you have to hang on to the handle when you open it or it jumps up on the table.

By Philip D. McGaughey on 20-Oct-2018


Dry pressing for fusing interfacing

Love this machine. It is easy to use and gets the job done perfectly. We are using it to fuse interfacing on polyester fabric and use the cotton setting which is hot enough and safe to use with the interfacing fabric. We did have trouble turning it on using our fingers but use our fingernail now or the back of a pen and lightly tap the on/off button and it is working perfectly. Lionel was very nice and helpful and was ready to replace the machine for us when I was having trouble turning it on. I have not used it to steam press yet because we need it for fusing, but I can't wait to try it.

By Dee Henry on 20-Oct-2018


Excellent

Bought the large model and it is excellent, heats up quickly and really gets the job done fast. The large model let's me put a good crease in to pants as well. Highly recommended, glad I didn't go with a cheaper unit.

By Alex Koshy on 20-Oct-2018


Would definitely recommend!

I am very pleased with the press itself. It works perfectly, no problems with its performance in any way. It does, however have a bit of a learning curve! Even though I know perfectly well that the top plate is HOT, I keep bumping my hand on the top when moving the garment on the bottom! It is sometimes a little slow to heat up after steaming but it continues to press just fine. It just won’t steam shot again until it builds up steam again!

By Kayla on 20-Oct-2018


Great machine, great customer service

This is a fantastic board. You do need to purchase the stand. But, the combination stand and board are unbeatable and a must have if you do any ironing at all. Quick to set up, quick to heat and operate, and quick to break down and put away. I was missing the bolts with the stand and informed the seller. He was in constant contact with me to ensure I received the bolts and followed up with me personally to check to see if I was happy with the product. One cannot ask for better customer service. The best thing I like, wow, what a great, sharp crease on my trousers.

By Jack on 20-Oct-2018


Should be consider a necessary appliance for indiv

Makes the chore of pressing the clothes a breeze especially the little ones. Had two of these when my children was in school. The first did not burn out for over 5 years and I found another one. It was broken by family members. It was an accident but realizing that I could not find another presser made it a disaster. The children is gone but due to medical conditions, I do not like to stand a lot because of pain issues and this appliance helps prevent long periods of getting this task done.

Very very good. Thank u

By Ioanna Pantazi on 16-Oct-2018

By Elaine North on 12-Oct-2018

I purchased this ironing press to replace one that had broken down after over nine years. I've used it about three times since purchasing and it is absolutely well worth the money. Also, it was delivered within two days of my ordering. Cannot fault the service

By Christine Roberts on 11-Oct-2018

Exceptionally quick service. Thank you. I will be ordering again.

By Sylvia Grayson on 03-Nov-2018


Fast delivery. Excellent service.Friendly Staff.

Arrived quickly, ( Next Day) Was not the machine I thought it was going to be? I had read online this machine identical to Jaguar 596. Its not. It looks sleek and has all the bells and whistles that is advertised for it. But it was not for me. I liked my friends Jaguar 596 and I explained & exchanged it painlessly.The 404 is really a Fristar& Rossman machine. But not the one I wanted. All in all I am very pleased with the service I get from this company.

By Margaret Hales on 03-Nov-2018

Good value machine

This is a very good value machine incorporating many features found in machines costing twice the price. It does take some getting use to and the instructions could be clearer - but I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a good value overlocker.
