Cord is too short

Seems to be designed to only be used on short ironing boards Show details

Designed by a bloke who has never ironed in his life

No temp control dial. Just super hot with no steam, med.steam or full steam. Poor position of lead. When you stand it on its end it overbalances.Lead is too short. Show details

Great reliable iron 18 months on

Bought this Braun iron after my great Aldi iron died and must say I have been very happy with it. It has never leaked which is something I will not tolerate in an iron. Has a very effective cleaning system and one other important feature is the sole plate which shows no scratches, obviously manufactured from a superior material. Also the plate seems to remain clean even with high temperature ironing. All in all very satisfied and would recommend. Show details

Excellent, easy glide, steam plus!

Excellent general purpose steam iron with a decent price tag.
I am very happy with this purchase.
Medium weight, glides smoothly along fabric.
Vertically steam clothing on hanger and curtains.
At 2000 Watts, if you want heavy duty iron for linen etc get the 2400 Watts Braun TexStyle 7 or 9.
I bought directly from Braun at a budget price.
Made in Hungary. Show details

Works well, although takes a long time to heat up

We like our iron.

It does drip a bit to begin with and takes a while to heat up which is a shame.

But apart from that, when it gets going it works efficiently.

It has a good sized water tank. The design is sleek a stylish and has a good weight to it.

Stores neatly and cools relatively quickly.

Brilliant Braun iron

Real quality iron from Braun. As soon as I unboxed it I could feel it was heavier and better quality than your average one. It's got a special anodized coating on the soleplate that's extremely slippery and makes the effort pretty easy ironing. Its also got other little touches that I appreciate such a s a swivelling cord and auto off. all

round good quality Typical Germans!

Too good for it's price

Love my new iron..heats up pretty fast ..steam function is very good as I've ironed many of my cotton shirts with great easy with this iron. Pretty light weight..easy to add water and to clean it. Temperature control is pretty accurate. Bought it from Amazon australia and costed just 19$

Light weight, Works Great

Got it as a temp replacement for our steam station that stopped working. Was a bargain from Amazon AU sale.

Heats quickly, steams ok, works well on cotton and silk, light weight. Cord is long enough. Temperature control is quick to respond.

Having used steam stations before, I would still go back to the larger Steam Stations and keep this as a backup. But for most people, this is an excellent iron. Highly recommended.

Excellent value

Purchased this iron during the mother's day promotion, and after the cashback it is extremely good value.

It heats up quickly, as a fair few functions available, and is quite easy to use which makes ironing clothes quick and simple, and it doesn't leak as compared to other cheap irons.

Good product. Can be better

I've been using the product for almost 6 months now. The iron heats up fast, steam release is good, no leakages and no dark marks on the hot plate (big plus). However, due to constant refill, takes ages to complete a pile of clothes. Will recommend for daily usage and top quality.

Bit Dissappointing

Yuk. Another water leak stain. Time to update the iron. After reviewing Choice we decided we'd give the Braun Texstyle a whirl, since it was considerably cheaper that the Sunbeam it was replacing.

It does everything really except remove the wrinkles. Compared to the old Sunbeam it had nothing.

Yes, heated up quickly, was light, sole plate glided well, but ironing cotton shirts or jeans, it's not up to the job. Shot of steam almost produced godd result, but who wants to shot all day when ironing? The tell tale is maybe that it using little water compared to others.

Yes, disappointing.

I need to make sure my new iron doesn't ruin my expensive silk skirt. How can I be sure that it will automatically adjust to the fabric with an appropriate temperature?

How do I adjust the temperature of the iron when ironing delicate fabrics?

There is no temp adjustment dial on this model. It pretends to be an iron. Really its just a steamy hot pointy brick with a handle. One of the other reviewers on here took it back for a refund/exchange.
