If you have stacks of shirts to iron each week, a steam generator iron could help you spend less time at the ironing board.
This week, we’ve spotted a great deal on a Tefal steam generator iron at online retailers Electrical 123 and The Co-operative Electrical.
Steam generator irons
Steam generator irons are more powerful than standard steam irons and good at getting through lots of ironing quickly.
But they do take up more room and tend to cost more than standard steam irons.
Cheap Tefal iron
The Tefal GV8460 Turbo Pro Express steam generator iron is on sale for £174.99 at Electrical 123 and £179.99 at Co-operative Electrical.
The same iron costs £239.99 at Comet and £279.99 at Currys.
As well as a handy turbo boost button, which gives a powerful short burst of steam to help with tougher creases, this iron has an easily removable water tank.
