This is the third Tefal Pro express I've owned, i can't recommend highly enough. Ironing is a pleasure with this iron. It's fast the setting are really good for delicates and also cotton.
Purchased in July 2019 at The Good Guys for $250.00.
Portable, effortless, professional results
Purchased for use in a 5 star hotel that offered a free 1-hour garment pressing as part of the executive lounge privileges. Most laundry was outsourced but with a 1 hour turnaround we had to do this inhouse by staff who were not laundry professionals.
The handle and cover made it portable and easy to secure safely to prevent damage or injury. The retractable power cord made it easy to set up/pack down - although it could have been longer - and the tank could be removed for filling (with tap water), or refilled in-situ, even while in use.
Purchased in February 2017 at Bing Lee Physical store for $399.00.
Tefal Steam Generator. GV 9080.
I used this steam station and I was very impressed with the way it ironed all my partners business shirts,pants,my work clothes no matter what materials they were made of.The iron has a flat base not like some other brands,so it can stand upright and because the cords are a reasonable length I put the base unit on the floor and you don’t need to buy a bigger ironing board.Also with large amount of shot of steam pressure I only have to iron over them once,saving time.The cover over the top keeps the iron in place and easy to carry.

Know better, choose better.
Unlike any other
I am a professional single man living in Sydney and I decided to buy this product as I was tired of not getting good results when ironing my business shirts and spending money by sending them to be ironed externally.
It is now very easy to iron my clothes, the iron is not heavy at all and I would seriously recommend spending a bit more on this product than getting another of poor quality and effectiveness.
Got the Tefal steam generator GV9080 as a wedding gift. I've got say, this was one of the best wedding gifts!!! I use to spend hours on Sundays ironing my working clothes and my hubby business shirts, but not anymore!
My first impression was at how big the whole unit was, but after having a go I was happy to rearrange things in my laundry area to find a spot for it. In summary here are my thoughts:
- Fast and powerful, you only need to go over things once and you are done
- Big water tank
- Auto shut off
- Retractable cord (like a vacuum cleaner)
- Built in hood, helps with carrying it around
Perfect Upgrade from Your Standard Iron
The Tefal Pro Express GV9080 is unlike any iron I have used before, going from a standard iron to this Steam Generator there is no comparison. For someone like me who is a working mum and hates the weekly ironing chore it has become faster and easier to get all the ironing done. Whilst the unit is bigger then your standard iron, it was still easy to find room in my larger laundry on a side bench to ensure full use of the ironing board whilst ironing, this may be a downfall for someone that has a smaller space to work with. It is easy to use, and has a removable water unit to easily fill it up at the sink. I recommend this product highly.
Ironing has never been so easy
The Tefal Pro Express GV9080 is fantastic. It has a removable water container to easily fill. It uses much less water then previous models also. It is so easy to set the temperature with LED lights and buttons instead of a wheel to turn. The iron is lightweight and the whole system very compact and easy to move around, with the auto cord function and plastic cover with handle. My only concern is the iron is not able to be locked in place, the cover and handle are great but allows for the iron to move around underneath. There is no rubber stoppers on the bottom of the unit. The water container is great that it is removable, but it is smaller then previous model but I still love it and how quickly I can do the ironing.
Very impressed with this steam generator
I have used other steam generators and even though this is a large unit I love using it. It is easy to carry (unlike other steam generators) and storing it is fabulous as the power cord is retractable (I have found this a pain with every other iron I have ever owned). As for the performance, I can't fault it and can honestly say it has cut my ironing time in half. The temperature settings are easy to use, I love the fact that you can detach the water unit and take it straight to the sink to fill it up (rather than making several trips betw...een the sink and the ironing board). I haven't found that I have needed to refill the tank during an ironing session even lasting up to 4 hours (so far). Auto switch off also means no chance of accidentally leaving it on. I highly recommend this product.
Questions & Answers
Anyone knows why there is only one button for steam? If i want a steam boost?
This is my second Tefal Steam station. I had my previous one for over 10 years and would still have it if I had not dropped the iron. This is the replacement and I am EXTREMELY disappointed with it. Firstly, I returned the original purchase because I thought it was faulty. The next one was exactly the same. It runs out of puff after about 20 minutes of continuous ironing on the highest setting. I have a lot of linen so I use the linen setting. Even though the tank is not empty, I refill it to max and there is only a clicking noise when I hit the steam button. I have to turn it off and then come back half an hour later and resume. This never happened with the previous model. The steam was constant as long as there was water in it. I hate this iron. Don't get me started on Tefal customer service. It does not exist. Cannot get anyone to answer the many many phone calls I have made despite waiting on the line for over 20 minutes in some cases. One day I hit the appropriate number as a supplier and got straight through to an Australian call centre who said this was not her area and I shouldn't have any trouble getting on to the BELGIUM call centre for customer service.Well, I could not get onto anyone by phone so I resorted to email and I finally got a reply email and all they said was return to the place of purchase if it was faulty. Well I did that but the next one is absolutely no better. This iron does not compare to my original Tefal. After using one for ten years, I am fully aware of how it performed and this new one does not compare
It has a 2 year warranty and you need to produce your receipt and take it back to place of purchase.
I have had mine over 2 years and dont have any problems with it .
I am looking at my 2nd receipt from February 2019. I know I can take it back to the place of purchase, and remember this has already been replaced. This makes me feel that this is as good as it gets, which is not as good as the original Tefal I used for over 10 years. I am just so annoyed that I dial the australian telephone number on the yellow sticker which is attached to the cord of the iron and I cannot speak to anyone. This time I take it back I will be getting a refund. I could not possibly be unlucky enough to have two faulty irons. I guess Tefal have changed something and I will get replacements from the purchase point till the cows come home, but they will continue to run out of steam. Tefal should provide some form of customer support so I can discuss this
What is the weight of the iron itself? I’ve found some steam station irons to be quite heavy. Normally I would check out an item pre purchase in store. Unfortunately no one in my area stocks this model. Also what are the dimensions of the unit?
i think is less than kg.
I 'll let you know soon as i am getting one at DJ ( on sale at $400)
very good, but not phenomenal.
it's less than 2kg. ( any lighter and the " hot plate " would be to thin, i think, hence loosing temperature).
You only feel the weight when lifting the iron. Otherwise it glides effortlessly ( feather weight) on clothes.
There is plenty of very dry steam and i don't need to refill it often.
Bought at DJ ($399) few days ago.
Thank you for taking the time to reply. Information is helpful and very much appreciated.
