Which? steam iron testing

During our steam iron tests, we ask a professional ironer, a panel of people who regularly iron, who tackled their usual loads, and our lab experts to assess each iron on factors including ease of use, speed, ironing performance and safety. 

As well as awarding the top-rated irons with a Which? Best Buy stamp of approval, we've also highlighted the Don't Buy irons you shouldn't waste your money on.
