All In One, No Humdrum.
No one likes ironing, let's face facts. This machine however, actually makes it less of a chore in my view.
I actually hadn't ironed anything for many years prior to being invited to review & receiving the Tefal IXEO QT1020, although my house partner irons things more regularly and has stated how the lightweight design of the copper/ceramic surfaced handpiece is beneficial for her tendonitis and carpels tunnel despite the need to maintain pressure on a trigger to activate/ control the steam.
Can't comment on fully arthritic hands, ...

A good and central - all-in-one ironing system
If my perception is correct, no-one really likes or wants to do ironing - and thankfully many modern fabrics now don't require it. No-one needs to iron socks, jocks and etc.
If you care about appearance though, there are exceptions. So, we cannot escape this task! What I often find annoying with ironing, is that you must go to where the ironing board is stored, unfold it, set the iron on top, check the water level (using only distilled or demin water) and then wait for it to heat.
The Tefal IXEO All in One system places the integral iron and ...board in a system - all in one spot. It's an attractive looking tidy and modern system that won't look out of place if left conveniently. One assumes that this is the intention i.e. an attractive system, that doesn't need to be hidden away? Being a guy, (and ironing as little as possible) - I must say that I feel that the RRP around $370 for something to iron clothes - is a bit rich? We received our rather large carton and later began assembly. You do really need to read the instructions to assemble everything since some components don't immediately show their purpose. In fact, we have two metal rods left over, that don't appear in the instructions - and to this day we don't know what they are for?

An interesting solution to "Iron-man arm"
Disclaimer: I've been asked to review one of these products and give my unbiased opinion. The Tefal IXEO All-in-One is a development on a couple of iron technologies I've been watching over the past couple of years as our old iron slid past its use-by date.
First, it uses the temperature dial-less (often misnamed "auto-temperature" or "fabric-sensing") technology that means you can iron denim and silks without touching a knob. While it sounds like magic it's really not. The soleplate stays at a constant (cooler) temperature to ensure that no...thing burns, while a separate element heats the steam to a higher temperature and this does most of the work to remove creases. Second, I've been interested in garment steamers and the steam station irons that are essentially an iron connected to an oversized water reservoir: great for marathon ironing sessions or heavy duty jobs where you need a ton of steam. The IXEO is a fairly good balance of both, with a few marks docked for certain design elements (see what I did there?) The IXEO has an interesting wand handle that sets it apart from anything else I've seen on the market. It truly is a hybrid iron and steamer. The soleplate is smaller than a regular iron, but the whole wand is lighter than either a normal iron or steam station iron - much easier to use for long periods (with one caveat, discussed below). This also makes it easier to use with the stand-up board that's provided. In terms of performance, it does a great job with a range of fabrics from delicates to heavier cotton garments. It glides easily and is lightweight to hold. I particularly like the fact it doubles as a steam cleaner for other jobs around the home.

Comfortable light simple compact Bad Design & Construction
Standing and moving is said to be healthier than sitting. This angle-and-height-adjustable household gadget works delightfully and is more comfortable than sitting or standing hunched over a horizontal table.
The IXEO is the first ironing table I’ve seen with adjustable height. The angle, also, can be easily set to horizontal, somewhat vertical or about 45°. The ironing/steaming part is light and ergonomic, easy to use; no aches; no soreness.
I can understand the heavy weight of ancient iron irons, to squash clothes and to hold enough heat long...

Questions & Answers
Just turn my new Tefal IXEO for the first time done what was said in the book and nothing happened (no steam coming after pressing the trigger for over 1 min30 sec
What Im doing wrong?
Ours did the same thing, long story short, the guy at the service centre had no idea what was wrong. My partner picked the whole unit up, gave it a little shake tipped it forward then back to level and now it works fine. Must have been something in the CALC Filter that was blocking water flow.
