Tefal Ultraglide Iron
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.
Purchased in February 2020 at The Good Guys.

Easy to use and heats up quickly
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.
Love this iron! Can't live without it
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!
Easy to use, durable, consistent
Fairly smooth iron, steam is consistent and so is the heat. Easy to hold and has some decent weight on it. Been using the product for 2 years and still happy with it as there hasn't been any issue. If you doesn't like heavy iron then this is not for you. Otherwise, it's recommended.

Handy Household Essential
This iron heats up so quickly that I don’t even have to walk away while it does! Once it heats up, it’s the perfect temperature!
The steam features are excellent and the iron in general is really safe and easy to use. Doesn’t leave any marks on my clothing either :)
Lives up to its name
I've been told by family that Ironing is my sport. I absolutely love to iron and I bought this Tefal Ultraglide after some research on a mid range reasonably priced iron that does the job. It ticks all the boxes for ease of use, doesn't stick to your clothes unlike some that I have used and produces sufficient steam to straighten most fabrics. I am very impressed by its performance and would buy another one as a spare! The water tank is large but because of the steam produced (I usually have it at its max heat and steam), you will need to refi...ll the water for the best performance. Initially I thought the iron was spitting water but realised after some use that the location of the spray button is just under the handle of the iron and that causes your hands to touch it resulting in water spitting on your clothes. I think Tefal should have located it above the handle rather than below. I've owned this for almost a year and its not given me any issues or stuck to anything I've ironed. Would totally recommend this!
Questions & Answers
Can anyone tell me the length of the power cord for this iron please?
My measurements make it 168cm plus the plug.
What is the capacity of the water tank?
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.
