the best iron ever This steam iron is simply excellent. So far I have used it a few times and honestly, ironing has never been easier. it has been designed to perfection and its optimalTemp function is something that takes the whole idea of ironing to the next level as you can stop worry about potential burning and melting your garments. Generally speaking this steam generator is worth every single penny, the best choice ever. 05 September 2014
