Tank capacity (ml)
Manufacturers claimed water capacity. If no capacity is claimed we list our measured capacity.
Cord length (m)
Cord length from plug to iron. For steam generators this is the length of the cord from the plug to the tank.
Weight of iron (kg)
For steam irons this is the weight of the iron with a full tank of water. For generators it's the weight of just the iron, not the water tank.
This is a safety feature that switches an iron off automatically if it's left unattended for a period of time.
Irons with a 'yes' have anti-calcium cartridges that will need to be replaced periodically.
Steaming time per fill (mins)
How long you can steam for continuously on the highest steam setting before needing to refill the tank. Time given in minutes.
Our professional ironer assessed the effort that was needed, the quality of finish and the time taken to get a good result ironing a skirt, shirt and pair of trousers.
We check how successfully the descaling function works to restore the iron to steaming at it's original steam rate and how easy the iron is to descale. For generators with replaceable anti-calcium cartridges this rating also takes into account the number of times a cartridge needs to be replaced.
How quickly the iron heats up from cold to be ready to iron on the three-dot heat setting.
