Makes ironing a breeze

published

I purchased this iron a year ago for my partner and used it for the first time today and was very impressed. The unit is lightweight and presses the clothes really well without the need to use the steam boost button even on several pairs of chinos. As it claims the iron just glides over clothes. Very impressed.

Purchased at The Good Guys for $89.

Good for a year.

published

Effective while it lasted. Worked well and had good steam, with a little bit of water dripping. Yet it died and wouldn't turn back on again after 14 months. Disappointing when with a 12 month warranty.

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $70.

This Iron is hopeless

published

I bought this Teflon ultraglide FV4042 on the 17/10/2020 from The Good Guys Cockburn WA.
Stopped working tonight. Water leaks and safety light appears. I have school uniforms and work clothes to iron. No bloody iron now.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS IRON. Staff at the good guys have no clues regarding products they sell. Totally opposite to what they described about this Iron

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $67.85.

Tefal Ultraglide Iron

published

I had no idea that this iron that was relatively inexpensive could be so good. I have been so used to inferior irons. It is light and easy to use on all fabrics I have tried it on. It is mind boggling the choices out there so it was handy that the salesman at the Good Guys was there to assist.

Terrible Design

published

Between the spray trigger on the inside of the handle and the cord coming up the middle of the back area of the handle, there is difficulty getting any grip on the handle at all. Also water constantly drips onto the clothes when the tank is filled during the steam operation, their solution is to wait a few seconds between iron swipes, as if anyone has time to do that. Took it back as soon as I could for a refund.

Great Iron

published

Overall I am happy with this iron. It is very steamy & gets the creases out easily.
The cord is 1.8 metres long which is a little shorter than my previous Russell & Hobbs iron. I do prefer the longer cord.
Still getting used to having the trigger on the handle and it is easily bumped.

Easy to use and heats up quickly

published

I love this iron. It's easy to use, does a great job, heats up quickly and produces a good amount of steam once you move up from the cool iron setting. On the high steam setting (cotton) it does go through water fairly quickly but that's to be expected for the amount of steam that it produces. I also love that I can add extra steam when needed with a well placed button.

Lovely iron to use

published

The surface of this iron is exceptional. It is the smoothest and easiest to use I have encountered. It it fairly sold and heats up to a good temperature and as such is highly suitable for thicker cotton. Steam works well and pumps out an effective volume. Have no complaints at all - its a good iron.

Love this iron! Can't live without it

published

This iron has saved the day many times. It is high quality, affordable, and will guarantee you a long life.

Thank you Tefal for helping me sort my business attire out, and for ensuring that my clothes are ironed well and to a high standard.

Only negatives would be that the water sometimes leaks a tiny bit, so watch out for this!

Sorry, I’m not sure - I threw the iron out as it was so awful. It was a bigger water tank than other irons I’ve had though.
