Overpriced junk that falls to pieces - buy elsewhere instead and get value for money
I own a Sunbeam SB4400 Mode Ironing Board which I purchased at Bing Lee. The reason I chose this particular model of ironing board, which is quite expensive relative to other makes of ironing boards, was that it looked very strong and sturdy and carried a respectable, well-established brand name.
However, two spot welds which attach one of the two sliding legs of the ironing board to the (underside) body of the board have snapped, thereby causing the ironing board to collapse and, in the process, rendering it useless. This occurred when I was s...
Questions & Answers
We have a Sunbeam Ironing board that has broken at the welded lugs on one of the legs - at the board end. I think its about 2-3years old, maybe 4.

I would like to buy a new Sunbeam ironing board but I have two requirements - I would like wheels, and the over length of the board & legs, must fit into a 150cm cupboard. What do you recommend please?

Have just purchased this board.I noticed there is rubber on the section where the iron stands. Wouldn't it burn and stick to the hot iron, or am I supposed to remove the rubber pieces?
Hi Noel, you will find this totally fine, the pieces are meant to be there and you won't have any trouble using the board...
