Excellent steam iron
I purchased this steam station today as a replacement for a Russell Hobbs steam station from Harris Scarfe that dripped water on the clothes every time I used it. Harris Scarfe were excellent at supplying a refund so I purchased this iron as a replacement for $150. This iron provides plenty of steam, even on eco mode. While the iron is a little heavy it is no problem to use. There is a minor delay between pressing the steam button the first time and steam production, but once it is producing steam each press of the button pretty much provides instant steam. It is only day one but I am very happy with this purchase.

Don`t bother. Save your money.
I have had many tefal steam irons, and needed to replace my old iron. I thought I would stay with tefal as all the other irons I've had have been great. This Liberty is a Lemon. The machine shudders before you get any steam if you even get any steam at all. Really do your self a favour and don`t bother. I will be returning this to tefal.

Best iron I’ve ever used... ignore the negative comments!
I’m surprised at so many negative reviews! I’ve got this iron in a few houses I clean, where there’s lots of linen to iron. I’ll never go back to a regular steam iron. Cuts work in less than half the time it used to take, and really gets out ALL the wrinkles FAST. Totally worth the price, around $160. I bought the last (demo) model from shelf at local shop for $130. None of these comments have been my experience once I got used to how to use the steam trigger. It’s light weight, and the handle design is excellent, ergonomically. The on/off ligh...t flashes when you haven’t used it for a few minutes, to let you know it’s about to shut down. Just press the flashing button and it will go back to normal. It also flashes when the setting is changed... it’s telling you to wait while it heats to correct temp. That’s the only thing I don’t really like... it’s too easy to accidentally change the setting when grabbing the iron. So it starts flashing... I just pop it back to the setting I want. Anyway, a couple seconds of flashing doesn’t bother me. And everything I needed to know is in the manual.

Hard to use this iron as it is very heavy, steam is not right, the steam is delayed... strange... our other Tefal iron was very good.
Would like to return it but don't have packaging

worst iron EVER
Terrible iron, it bursts the steam out looooong after you press the steam button. Very short cord to plug into the power. Buying a Tefal I thought I would be buying a quality product. This is without a doubt the worst iron I have ever owned. Should have read the reviews here first.

Shocking not impressed at all
Bought this one to replace my previous Tefal one that I've had for 5 years - it was excellent! Replacing only because the plate is now scratched and marks the fabrics. So disappointed with this new one. When pressing the steam button it pulsates which is annoying, it takes ages when varying the temperature to come to temp. The shot of steam is so delayed. By the time the steam comes through the iron is upright and you've finished, very dangerous and unexpected. Rang customer Tefal service she told me I needed to clean out the cal piece and us...e distilled water! It's brand new for goodness sake! Customer service just skirt about the problem offering useless solutions - no help at all which all the reviews say. Also doesn't appear to be as hot as my previous one. So disappointed! I did read lots of the reviews which most state all I've stated here but thought I'd give it a try... so sorry I did now, I've got to go to the trouble to return it. I purchased it on special they are an expensive item to buy.

I would not recommend this product
It doesn't work and I would not recommend!! I will be taking back for a refund!! I'm very disappointed with this iron. The last Tefel steam station I had was amazing, but with this one I think they have cut corners and it isn't a good product!

Love this iron
I really like this iron. It is easy to use and light. Irons all fabrics and makes ironing easy as the creases come out with no effort.
It steams well and irons all fabrics.

Disappointed in how this iron operates.
Iron on off button flicks and there is no trouble shooting to explain why it flicks or how to fix it during the operation of the iron
Can’t get steam function going when I try to iron silk.
The steam function is delayed.
The anti cal device is supposed to click in according to the instructions but doesn’t do so. The anti calcium function does not remove much calcium
The instructions and trouble shooting guide is not helpful.
Very disappointed because the iron has to be “managed”. Bought Tegel steam irons before and have been very happy.

I wouldn't buy this again and don't recommend it
Before purchasing this I emailed Tefal asking how much the hand piece weighed but was not favoured with the courtesy of a response. I wouldn't buy this product again.
The handpiece (iron) is heavy and has poor glide. This is making it literally painful to use. I will only be able to iron in small doses as it is too hard on me.
The steam setting is selected automatically according to the temperature setting the user manually selects. This is at odds with the claims made on Tefal's on website.
The fitting to click the handpiece back onto...the unit is fiddly, and in my opinion, dangerous. If you don't concentrate on fitting it correctly, it might fall off. So, if you don't rest the iron on the ironing board in between items, but want to put it back on the unit, as I do, it's a lot of mucking around and time consuming. There is a weird delay in between ironing and when the steam is released, meaning that I've finished ironing one part and return the iron to the upright position to move the garment, and the steam shoots uselessly into the air instead of doing what it's supposed to do. Again, time consuming as I have to leave the iron on the garment after I've finished ironing that part to allow the steam to do its job.

Questions & Answers
This iron is beyond ineffective. It is excruciating to try and get simple jobs done, which previously took no time at all with my previous brand of steam iron... are there better instructions than those provided in the box?
no answer here, it is just a terrible iron!
how often should i change the antical cartridge
I would like to speak to somebody. I purchased a Tefal Liberty steam iron on 8 February 2020 at Myer Macquarie, which is now closed. I cannot find where to put the water in the iron. I am 78 and live in Turramurra. My daughter drove over from Ermington and she too could not find where to put the water in. I paid $299 for this iron and would like to speak to somebody to see if they can help me with this problem. Sandra - 94400263.
The large tank under where the iron sits pulls out and you fill it up to where the indicator is on the tank. There is a place at the front to put your hand in and just pull it out enough to put the water in. There should have been instructions how to do this. When you iron you hold the button in under the iron and it steams. Love this iron.
