Lasted 15 months
The iron functioned well for 16 months, and then would not heat properly and tripped our RCD circuit protection. Very disappointed as I considered Braun to be a reliable brand.

The iron has a bad design fault. It is extremely difficult to hold the iron in a normal way without touching the spray button. This results in unwanted wet patches on items being ironed. A pity, because the iron works very well apart from that.

the ONLY reason I bought this Braun, is that my 20yo Braun iron, which was working perfectly & never had any problems fell off my washing machine onto tiled floor, through vibration, & I think cracked the tank started to spit a little but hey, after 20 years and still going strong. As Molly might say, " do yourself a favour & get a Braun" don't waste your money on el cheepos

Too heavy. Piece of Junk. Burns clothing
I’ve hated this iron from the moment my husband bought it for me. Too heavy. Inconsistent temperature. Has melted numerous items of clothing as it’s temperature fluctuates. Total piece of junk - I’ve struggled with it for years. Throwing it in the bin and going back to a Philips!!! Don’t waste your money

3 years and going strong
This is a very well built high quality iron because it effortlessly flattens creases without burning them. It’s reliable and it’s steaming capabilities are enough to do an entire load of clothing without refilling.

Ironing is a breeze !
FANTASTIC iron - about 18 months old now. Paid (approx.) $100 for it. I had one of those incredibly expensive $2,500 Ironing Systems, it broke down. Went to get a quote on fixing it, they said it was just the switch - quoted me $380 to fix it, with no warranty. I figured if I paid $100 for a completely new iron, and with a 1-year (or 2-year) Warranty, I'd be well ahead. Bought a BRAUN TEXSTYLE 7 PRO Series Steam Iron and it's FANTASTIC ! Much lighter and easier to manage than the large, very heavy 'other one' which I had. Plus th...e base it totally non-stick (not like the 'other one', which would have to be cleaned off on a regular basis). The steaming is wonderful and makes ironing really easy - even on creased cottons and linens. Sheets come up beautifully, as do denims ! I'm extremely happy with my iron, and would highly recommend it. Thanks, Braun !

Disappointed with maintenance
Purchased this iron because it got so many positive reviews 3 years ago. Lately, it has stopped working with my Robinhood ironing stations and appears to switch OFF unexpectedly, whilst 'flashing' the red heating bubble at the base of the iron. Tried to contact / email Braun in OZ -- after days got the information that these irons are now being maintained by DeLonghi. Directed my query there - no help whatsoever!! Just a requirement for model info, and other information not relevant to my QUESTION: is there a problem with the iron of with my Ro...binhood? It is expensive calling out an electrician -- would want to do this only if there is no other solution. -- So, used the iron happily for 3 years .... but now might look for an Australian Made one (if there is one).

Great iron which can be used to quickly iron shirts. The iron feels heavy at first, but the glide which is provided by the high quality sole plate makes the ironing quick and easy. Very happy with this product.

Stopped working & just over a year old!
Purchased this product based on quality & brand name, even if expensive. It’s just over a year old and no heat! It’s been used in a normal domestic environment, great whilst working but didn’t go the distance. I won’t be buying Braun again.

Good steam iron
I am satisfied with the amount of steam expelled. It is a bit bulky but it's heaps better than the Kambrook one I was using earlier. It is made in Europe so it's better quality build.

Worked great for a week
For the first week this iron was working great.
Previous iron was a philips azure and the steam was never good.
This Braun was ticking all the boxes with quick reheat, large water jacket and especially steam was plentiful and strong even on the level it was set at out of the box at level 3.
Only issue i had was the handle was a little loose and it was a bit hard to see the thermostat adjustment as its obscured by the handle and setting it was guess work.
So after a week the steam pretty much gave up. It would work ok straigt after ...the water tank was filled but within a few shots of steam it just wouldnt work as if the button was disconnected or something. Obviously the button was fine because once the water tank was refilled from say 3/4 tank to full the steam would be ok for a couple of shots again.

Braun SI7046VI TexStyle 7 Pro Iron Great Iron that does the job
Was tossing up between two irons and glad I went with this one as it handles all types of fabrics well. The other one did not handle delicate fabrics - but this one did!
Great amount of steam, very good.

Died at 2years old
Very disappointed to have to buy a new iron after only 2 years. It was great while it worked- heated up quickly, no water leakage once hot, auto shut off and textile protector was great on delicate and black fabric. But 2 years (almost to the day) it started smoking after about 1hr of ironing and now won't heat up when I turn it on. I won't be buying another Braun iron.

2yrs of everyday ironing and still working as new
This iron puts all previous irons including the last 4 top of the range Tefal irons to absolute shame.
The sapphire sole plate still looks brand new and glides exactly the same. The iron doesn't leak while ironing at all, although patience is needed till iron has fully heated otherwise it will leak.

Serviceable, but not much more
The Braun steam iron is adequate but not much more. It is well made and feels comfortable when in use with enough weight to it but is not overly heavy that it becomes tiring. Taking note of the advised heat settings it delivers a good flow of steam without drips. The steam flow gradations are a bit optimistic though with no steam evident from 1 to 2 but seems to come on vigorously from 3 onwards. It was not obvious if the flow of steam was greater at max (6) compared to 3. Similarly, it was hard to tell if the steam burst (Vario plus steam) del...ivers extra steam when using a steam setting, though if used with no steam and the burst was used, steam is produced but not much. A feature of the iron is Precision Shot which is meant to generate a strong burst of steam in the horizontal and vertical positions. It sort of works but is mostly rather feeble even at the max heat setting and priming it first. The manual shows steam being shot out of two nozzles at the front but this does not happen. In the vertical position it is useless and is unable to steam clothes hanging up, despite the claims made in the manual. Overall, it irons well enough but the extra steam settings are not particularly good.

Questions & Answers
Very happy with the product, unfortunately cable has frayed going into iron. It's just out of warranty and I just need a new cable. I have opened the unit and it's quite simple plug in arrangement once opened. I just can't see to order a cable or find on internet. I'm in Australia and postage from the US is unbelievable expensive
Steam is not stopping, what can I do?
I've never had that problem with mine - everything's so complicated these days, maybe you just need to turn off the iron completely at the powerpoint, pull the plug out of the socket, leave it for a minute or two and then re-connect. Also, when you turn off the iron, you need to turn the Steam dial which is on top of the iron, right back down to Zero - otherwise water will leak out. Hope this helps !
