Another Leaker !

published

First one lasted a month before it started leaking. Harvey Norman exchanged it without any hesitation. This second one has lasted less than two weeks! Same problem-leaking from the main body just above the power light. Surely I'm not the only one suffering these problems?

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $169.

I returned it to Harvey Norman. As we iron daily it's an essential item to us. Harvey Norman looked after us with knocking a few dollars off another model.

I didn't think the glide was very smooth. I ironed black pants with this a lot and I found that optimaltemp was always just off, especially for my black chinos and my wool coat it always left sheens

No more damaged ironing!

published

Couldn’t be happier, no scorched and burnt clothes. Eases out wrinkles. Great for delicate fabrics and woolly clothes. Easy to use, large water tank capacity, self cleaning and stores away neatly.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman.

Light and easy to use

published

This iron is very light. It works well to any type of fabric Ive ironed. The steam needs a bit of practice to get the perfect timing. I havent had any fabric burn so Im pretty satisfied. The steam iron when in use is a bit loud. The calc clean option is very useful. Ive been using this iron for 6 months now and I only cleaned it once using calc clean option. The only downside is there's no locking mechanism to hold the iron when not in use. But for its price, this iron is worth it.

Purchased in at Big W.

Poor Performance

published

I bought this product from BigW on July 28, 2019 and returned it on July 29, 2019.
First the Pros: well designed, easy to use, light weight
Now the cons: only one con actually, it’s pretty useless as an iron. I found that it did not iron well, the clothes were left looking as though they had not been ironed. I think the problem lies with their OptimaTEMP technology, to me the iron did not appear to get hot enough to iron properly. I tried using more steam but that only left the clothes damp particularly as the steam boost would continue after the button had been released and was not so much steam but water.

Yet apparently the product was not faulty.

Purchased in for $199.

Thanks for noticing.... I've always respected the quality of your brand based on my experience across many different product types. Under rated in the market place as I see it.
