Big helper in small size

Very nice and helpful thing. Ironing now takes up to 10 times less time.

Ultra XL ironing press

Best value for money I've had in a while. Excellent performance!

By Maria Macleod on 30-Jun-2019


First time for me owning and using a press. Water compartment is rather small, it's going to take more practice to comfortable do king size bedding. The small free pad could do with being longer. But saying all that it's seems to do the job.

Time saver

If you have arthritis, this ironing press is brilliant. If you're short on time, it's brilliant. If you've never ironed before, it's brilliant. Everything about this press is ease of use so I would recommend to anyone thinking about getting an ironing press to purchase this one.

Pretty good but could be better

I bought this at my wife was convinced it would be great. As I'm a sucker or a new toy I agreed to go along. First the good points: The size is fine, though I wouldn't like to go any smaller and a bit bigger would be nicer. If you tend to leave your ironing board up then this actually takes up less space. It gets rid of creases and is indeed faster than a normal iron. How much faster will depend on the state of your clothes. If they've been scrunched in a ball for a few week then you're going to spend a lot of time trying to flatten it out before you can pull down the lid. It does have a steam function though the pressure and heat mean that it isn't really necessary, at least for anything I've ironed. It takes very little effort or concentration to use so its much easier to watch TV etc than when using a normal iron. The less good points: Slippy clothes tend to slide off and are difficult to hold in place when bring the lid down. It doesn't hold a steady temperature. For example on cotton setting, it heats up to about 200 degrees, but when you use it it drops to to less than 170. The temperature drops even more quickly when you use the steam. It's hot to use. You have a very large metal plate heated to 200 degrees pumping out heat. That may be fine in winter but in some it's going to be unpleasant. The top plate only opens to about 45 degrees so when you are smoothing out a garment, your knuckles are only a few cm away from the hot plate. There's not a lot space at the back in front of the hinge so ironing large items can be tricky. I'm 6ft tall and find the stand a bit low. I might be able to adjust the height but haven't tried yet. If you sew, you can't press open seams on it so budget another 10-15 pounds on a basic dry iron. Despite the problems, I'm glad to have it though next time I might try a larger commercial model.

Halves my ironing time

This is a great machine, easy instructions, you can sit down to iron, fast to get through a large pile of ironing!

By Tricia Surridge on 02-Jan-2019


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


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.

Ironing? No problem

Delivered as promised. Easy to commission. A pleasure to use. Impressive results. The reviews were correct and fair for once!

By GM FIELD on 17-Sep-2018


Very good

So far the press has proved very good. I am pressing lots of large bedsheets once you have worked out the best way to fold them you can fly through them.

By Claire Jackson on 04-Mar-2018


Pros and Cons

Some great things about this press are the ironing surface and the stand. Sadly unless you are doing multiple layers there are 2 circles one at each side that crinkle. I now have an extra layer of foam (which came with the purchase which has helped a little)

By Helen Powell on 14-Feb-2018


Great iron press

Really pleased I've bought this iron and found out what I've been missing out on the last couple of years. All you neex to know is that its quick,speedy and excellent results.

By Mohammed jaber Ahmed on 12-Feb-2018


Excellent Product

Ordered this as it was taking me so long to iron my sheets. I had so many to iron after all my guests left after Christmas. Fantastic machine I pressed all of them in half the time it normally takes to iron them and with a better finish.

By Cherrilyn Ward on 08-Jan-2018


Brilliant!

Bought this to try and reduce my time ironing every week. Cant believe I have not looked at a press before. The Ultra XL Press is robust, well built, powerful and quick. Practice will make perfect. Great product, excellent Service from The Ironing Press Company, highly recommended.

By Gillian Butler on 09-Aug-2017


Great service and personal response- very impressed !

By Miranda Wharam on 23-Jun-2017


Delighted

We run a guest house and needed to replace a failed steam press. This was one of the least expensive options but we are delighted with it. It is robustly built and practical. We could easily has spent £100 more and got the same or less.

By F&T on 20-Apr-2017


Amazing

I wish I had bought it sooner. I wouldn't have wasted my life ironing with a traditional iron!

By Nokutula Gore on 15-Aug-2019


Our best purchasing

It makes us easier our duty. We have 2 turístic apartments. Lots of bed linen need to be prepare every week. This iron allows us to finish fast and comfortable. Thanks.

By Joaquin Rocamora Patiño on 15-Aug-2019


Practice, practice, practice

Certainly looked a lot easier to use in the video compared with the reality of using it yourself. You need to master the techniques for all the various garments and just practice, practice, practice. Probably worth five stars when I master it.

Great press

I love it!

By Mrs. Sally Pearce on 14-Aug-2019


Fantastic

Best thing I have ever bought. All my friends are getting one too!

By Sandy Buckley on 14-Aug-2019


Facile à utiliser

By Yves Lefay on 12-Aug-2019


Delighted

I purchased the Press for the purpose of ironing double size bed linen for my holiday cottage. I am pleased to say it has lived up to expectation, although it has take a few attempts to get the hang of it. But now I have mastered it, the product is excellent, and I would definitely recommend it. Although the press is rather cumbersome, is quite heavy, and takes up a fair amount of room in my cupboard, I would say it is well worth it! Thank you very much.

By Dee Bailey on 08-Aug-2019


Good, strong press

And I received it the next day after ordering!

By Angie Thorne on 08-Aug-2019


Best steam press I have used

This is now the third steam press that I have bought and so far, the best. Always much better than an iron & ironing board. I just love the mini iron too, so useful.

By Stuart Hynds on 08-Aug-2019


Good machine

This press was bought as a replacement for the same model which failed recently. On arrival there was a nasty rattle. When I tested the press I found that the reservoir leaked continuously. Having no time to return the goods we cannibalised the old press for its reservoir and whilst fitting it we found the source of the rattle to be a very loose screw "securing" a PCB. All is now working well and producing good results; although we have probably lost the guarantee. We have no comment on the supplier, except to say that the (faulty) press arrived very quickly and seemingly well packaged.

By Carole Denholm on 07-Aug-2019


Love my Mega press

Love the machine once you get used to feeding things through. Very easy for pillowcases which you can fold and place flat on the board and press. Sheets folded in 4 longways feed through well. Some clothing works well but shirts get a bit tricky once you get to the yoke parts. Anything that gets a bit tricky can lead to burns. I found quilt covers are no good on this, they are too bulky and maneuvering them meant I kept hitting my wrist on the top hot part and ended up with a second degree burn plus a few little ones. Caution is very important in using this machine as you can get burnt if you don't pay attention to keeping things away from the top hot part. I also have a magnetic piece on my watch strap so had to remove that before I start ironing. Great machine once you get used to it and can iron most but not all things on it.

By Christine Hawkes on 06-Aug-2019


Great product

I was not sure at first if I was going to get on with these, I wanted one to press my art quilts. I have to say the company were very helpful and I bought a larger model and have used it for the first time and it has given my quilt a very professional finish. Thank you.

By Moya Quick on 03-Aug-2019


Really a five star press

Highly recommend! Anything to cut ironing in half!

What a beauty

This machine is a beauty and brilliant value for money. It is very robust and has many features usually only available on much more expensive machines.

By Cazz on 24-Aug-2019


I shall not be using the twin needles until later in the year so cannot comment on their performance yet. I can comment though on your speedy dispatch and delivery of said needles, well done.

Just a small item, a twin needle for my sewing machine, but was as advertised, arrived when expected and did the job.

Machine needles for sewing leather

They are a good quality and reasonably priced too.

By Philippa Reeve on 13-Aug-2019


Great spare part!

My old cap for my Comel Snail 2 boiler was very leaky and full of limescale, and the washer was withered! Thought I’d treat myself to a complete new cap. My Snail 2 is like new now! And a competitive price compared to some. Many thanks, I’ll be back for spare washers!

By Carol A Shead on 10-Aug-2019


Brilliant needles

Exceptional needles for fine work. I thoroughly recommend.

By Sheila Peterson on 06-Aug-2019


Needle threader

Excellent service, quick delivery. Haven't mastered stopping the cotton coming out of the needle when sewing, but maybe that's my fault. Threads very easily. Thank you.

By James O'Reilly on 06-Aug-2019


Great machine

I'm very new to overlockers, it took me quite a while to get my head around it, it was pre-threaded but incorrectly it wouldn't work, the loopers seemed ok but the needles were the problem, I had to re-thread it which wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, then it worked, very happy with it, a good strong machine and a decent weight, would recommend.

By Marilyn Kemp on 05-Aug-2019


Fast next day delivery and helpful

Phoned for needle advice and they were really helpful + received needles next morning!
