Morphy Richards Steam Iron Reviews

Morphy Richards Steam Generator Iron Reviews

Without any doubt, Morphy Richards are one of the leading and best known brands for making all kinds of steam irons. That includes their normal steam irons, and these newer steam generating irons. They essentially do two lines in their generator product range which are, the Jet Stream and the Power Steam Elite.

The main difference in these two lines is that the "Elite" range is pressurised. They are both good types of steam generating irons but the Elite, as the name would suggest, is the better and more expensive of the two ranges.

Currently they have 5 irons in their Jet Stream range and 14 in their Elite range. In the Jet stream range, the prices will vary from around £80-110, so more affordable than their Elite range. The benefit of the Elite range is, that they offer a much higher pressure of steam. That makes ironing easier, and especially on stubborn wrinkles.

Below you will find a top 5 table of the Jet Stream range. Underneath that, you will find another table of the 14 Morphy Richards Power Steam Elite Range. These have been ranked in order of buyer ratings. The highest rating is at the top of the table.

Top 5 Morphy Richards Jet Stream Generator Irons

Underneath the tables, I have done a brief review of each iron. In there you will find links, if you want to read more detailed reviews on the individual iron. Underneath this table you will find the 5 summary reviews for the Jet Stream. Please scroll down past these, if you prefer to see the Power Elite range.

As I have mentioned the Jet Stream, are very popular with customers because they are good quality and at a sensible price that most households will be able to afford. These irons sell pretty well and are classed to be in the budget range.

  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Stainless steel soleplate

No 2 Choice - Morphy Richards 42244 Jet Steam Generator Iron, 2200 W - Purple

morphy richards 42244
  • Powered by 2,200 watts
  • Measures 30 x 18 x 36 cm
  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • 100 gram high level steam output
  • 1 Litre detachable water tank
  • Diamond Sole Plate
  • Removable anti-scale cartridges

This model gets cracking reviews so buyers love this product a lot. This one has vertical steam which makes it great for hanging garments like curtains, or for clothes like dresses and suits.This is an all singing and dancing iron, and the price point should suit most pockets. There are almost 1,000 buyer reviews at Amazon who give this a really impressive 4.4 out of 5 star rating.

When this was first introduced it had a price point of around £200. Since then and due to the competitive nature of the UK market place, prices in this range of irons has thankfully continued to drop. If you are in the market for using one of these newer irons, then in my opinion there is no better starting point than this one. It does make the dreaded task of ironing a great deal easier, and yes it will save you a lot of time. It is also one of the best sellers at Amazon.

No 3 Choice - Morphy Richards Jet Steam 42234 Steam Generator Diamond Soleplate - Blue

Morphy Richards Steam Generator Iron Reviews
  • Powered by 2,300 watts
  • Measures 36 x 30 x 17.5 cm
  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Premium diamond soleplate
  • 100 gram high level steam output
  • 1 Litre detachable water tank
  • Easy gliding ironing system

Another very popular iron from Morphy Richards is the Jet Stream 42234 which costs around £80. The reason this one is so popular is because it is high quality and really good value for money. Like the iron above this one is also a good balance for those who would like a steam generator but are on a tight enough budget.

I am not saying this is a cheap iron by any means. It is a good quality iron and compared to many other makes and models, truly does represent good value for your money. Personally I would prefer the one above as it is a newer model, slightly cheaper and will do anything that this one can do. However some people do prefer this model so I have included it here for your information.

  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Stainless steel soleplate
  • 100 gram high level steam output

No 5 Choice - Morphy Richards Jet Steam 42293 Steam Generator Stainless Steel Soleplate

Morphy Richards Jet Steam 42293 Steam Generator
  • Powered by 2,200 watts
  • Measures 42.2 x 30 x 25.2 cm
  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Stainless steel soleplate
  • 100 gram high level steam output
  • 1 Litre detachable water tank
  • Replaceable anti-scale cartridge to help prolong the life of the product

This one has a nice £80 price point and also gets nice consistent ratings by buyers over at Amazon of 4.1 out of 5 stars. This product has been out since 2013. It does not have a lot of reviews as the two I have already mentioned outsell this product rather easily.

The main difference in this product is that it has a stainless steel soleplate and some buyers prefer that material. This iron provides 90 grams of steam and that will quickly deal with normal creasing in clothes in a very short space of time.It is similar to the others in that it has a one litre tank and can handle vertical steaming of clothes which is useful.

Other than that there is not a great deal to say about this one. In my opinion with the other two getting more reviews I would tend to stick with one of those.

Top 14 Morphy Richards Power Elite Stream Generator Irons

I also mentioned earlier that the Morphy Richards  company has two ranges. We have already looked at the Jet Stream range and now we look at their more expensive Elite range. The main difference is the higher levels of pressure that you get with the Elite irons.

Simply because you have more pressure simply means you will be able to iron even faster. The higher pressurised steam will get rid of creases and wrinkles in the clothing even faster than the irons that I have already included. The truth is that in some cases they are more expensive, but always be on the look out for offers as that can make the prices pretty similar.

There are quite a few steam generator irons in this Elite range and I have completed a short review on each below. After the short review I have provided a link where I have reviewed each of these in more detail. To make things a little easier I have done a comparison table of them just below so as you can see them all in one place.

No 1 Choice - Morphy Richards 332006 Power Steam Elite Steam Generator Iron with Auto Clean - Red

Morphy Richards 332006 Power Steam Elite Steam Generator Iron with Auto Clean
  • Powered by 2,200 watts
  • Measures 36 x 17.5 x 30 cm
  • Weighs 3.8 Kg
  • Stainless steel soleplate
  • 100 gram high level steam output
  • 1 Litre detachable water tank
  • Water spray
  • Replaceable anti-scale cartridge to help prolong the life of the product

No 2 Choice - Morphy Richards 332001 Power Steam Elite Steam Generator Iron with Auto Clean - Grey

Morphy Richards Power Steam Elite 332001
  • Powered by 2,400 watts
  • Measures 38 x 21.4 x 29.5 cm
  • Weighs 7 Kg
  • Ionic soleplate
  • 170 gram high level steam output
  • 2.2 Litre detachable water tank
  • Automatic Cleaning

A great choice at number 2 in this range is the 332001 model. This has an average price of around £140-180. Once again we have the much larger 2.2 litre tank and the ceramic soleplate for easier ironing. The main difference with this iron is that it self cleans.

It comes in this dark matt black colour which I think looks really well.It has bar pressure of 5 bars and produces 170 g of steam. The iron locks to the base for safe and easy carrying. That is a great feature and makes it really safe when you are putting the iron away for storage.

  • Measures 38 x 30 x 20 cm
  • Weighs 6 Kg
  • Ceramic soleplate

This particular model costs just under the £115 mark. Overall buyers have rated this one as 4.5 out of 5 stars.As there are around 50+ reviews this rating is reliable. Most of them gave this one either 4 or 5 star ratings.

There is a 2 year guarantee on this product so I am sure the person who left the bad review got either a replacement or their money back. Overall this model looks to be well priced and is certainly one of the better ones out in the market place right now.

  • 6.5 Bar Pressure 170 gram of pressurised steam output, and 300 gram steam boost
  • 2.2 Litre detachable water tank

4.4 out of 5 stars should pretty much tell you all about the Elite 332000. This is an expensive iron at almost £170 and it is as you would expect also a top end quality product. This has the big 2.2 litre tank so trips to the kitchen tap will be kept to a minimum. There are not a ton of reviews with this one, but those that do exist, think this is an excellent product. Personally I just struggle with the high price point when I look at all of the irons that are out there. Like for like comparisons though will tell you that this is one of the very best.

This selection has a powerful 2,400 watt steam producer which can pump out 190 grams of steam and a steady 5 bar pressure. It comes equipped with a 2 litre removable tank. This one uses a ceramic soleplate which many people seem to prefer for using on their clothes.

There are only 4 buyer reviews but recently the price has dropped on this one significantly, so I would expect to see sales increasing as a result of that. It is certainly a nice looking iron and one of good sound quality.The ratings are good at 4.2 stars out of 5 and this one is particularly easy to use thanks to the simple controls.

This is one of their best selling iron in this Elite range. For a long time this one has been their best seller for quite a while. This one prices in just under the £125 mark, but is the best seller for a very good reason. People who trust this brand know that they are always going to get high quality, and if that means spending a little extra, then they are OK with doing just that.

There are over 400 buyer reviews at the UK Amazon website and they rate this one highly with an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars, which is a sound and consistent rating. This one has a huge 2 litre tank and a bunch of other great features which buyers really love.

Morphy Richards - The Company Backround

This company has been around for as long as I can remember. They do a whole range of products for the home such as irons, toasters, kettles, cooking and baking products, steam mops, electric blankets, coffee machines etc. They also carry all of the spares for your products if anything ever needs changing. You can register any of their products online and they have a good customer service and their phone number is 0344 871 0944 or you can contact them on their website, by emailing their customer engagement centre.

Brief History

The company formed way back in 1935 and two men formed the company. They were called Donal Morphy and Charles Richard. I guess you can figure out where the brand name comes from 🙂 They merged with a Scottish company called Astral and launched as a public company in 1947.

In 1954 the first heat controlled steam and dry iron was invented with its own boiler which could produce 25 minutes of steam. In 1960 Morphy sold his shares to EMI and the company started to produce larger domestic appliances. By 1972 BDA which included Hotpoint English Electric, GEC and Morphy Richards became the biggest manufacturer in the United Kingdom.

They sold 45 million products and had a turnover of £45 million and employed 10,700 people.In 1974 they merged with Schreiber Furniture and in 1975 BDA changed its name to Hotpoint. They were sold in 1982 to Capital for Industry and were marketed alongside a company called Carmen.

For those of us who remember radio cassettes this should bring back a few memories.Throughout the 90's and into the 21st Century Morphy Richards have been a regular player in the UK market and I think there is a Morphy Richard's product in almost every home.
