Enjoy the benefits of advanced technology functions such as Anti Drip, which helps you avoid water leaks on your clothes; and Auto Shut-off ? a great safety feature if you forget to turn your iron off or you are called away from the ironing for a moment, if for example the phone rings. Another useful feature is an automatic temperature adjust mode; you simply need to select the fabric type on your iron and it will work out everything else for you.
If you are looking for a smooth iron with good stain resistance, then look for an iron with a ceramic or stainless steel soleplate, rather than aluminium. To make ironing easier, why not invest in an iron with a button notch so you can get round awkward shirt buttons and other fastenings; or a vertical steam feature so you can steam your curtains. Practical features to look out for include a cable tidy ? make storage easy even if you have a three metre cord, and a dry tank warning ? useful to keep your level of steam sufficient.
