09 September 2009

Bosch has launched a new range of powerful steam irons able to iron horizontally or vertically - including one iron it claims is the most powerful on the market.

The TDA56 irons range replaces Bosch's TDA8 range, which we previously reviewed during our comprehensive test of 79 different steam irons. 

Bosch was crowned Best Domestic Appliance Brand in the 2009 Which? awards - find out how well Bosch irons fared during our testing, and if any Bosch irons were crowned a Which? Best Buy.

New Bosch irons range

The Bosch irons in the new collection are equipped with ceramic soleplates, anti-drip and anti-limescale functions. The new steam irons featured include:

Power II iron

According to Bosch, the Power II iron (pictured above) is the most powerful iron on the market because of its 2,750 watt element.

Eco iron

The Bosch Eco iron (pictured below) includes a setting that Bosch claims can cut energy consumption by up to 24% at higher steam settings.

Both irons can deliver up to 40 grams (g) of continuous steam per minute and a shot of steam equivalent to 120g per minute. Each has a suggested retail price of £59.99 and are available to buy now.

Which? steam iron testing

We'll be giving both steam irons an initial 'first look' test in the October issue of Which? magazine.

Also in the range is the All Rounder II, which matches the Power II and Eco irons on steam power, and the All Star II, which can only provide a 100g per minute steam shot but costs around ten pounds less, with an RRP of £49.99.

All come with the manufacturer’s two-year guarantee.
