What Sizes of Boards do Minky Make?

They produce 4 sizes:

  1. 110 x 35 cm
  2. 114 x 38 cm
  3. 122 x 38 cm (This is the most popular size)
  4. 122 x 43 cm

What is the Average Price?

They price range anything between £30 -50 at the lower end and from £50-70 at the higher end. That price depends on the size and what features the ironing board actually has.

What is Different About the Boards?

We have explained the price variations above. The natural question is why is there such a difference in the price points. That comes down to the features of each board. We have explained those below:

  • Reflector Covers - This type of cover is made from a heat reflective metallic coating. Rather than the heat going into the board, it is bounced back up into the garment, and makes the removal of creases easier.
  • Flex Guides - These help prevent the cord from the iron getting tangled and snagging.
  • Steam Generator Iron Rest - This type of board features a low level steam generator rest, and because it has that, you can make better use of the space on the board, as your iron can be safely positioned on the unique double sided rest. Great for the larger irons but can be used for ordinary steam irons as well.
  • Compact - As the name would suggest these are overall slightly smaller boards for anyone pushed for space.
  • Extra Wide - Again these are the wider style of board with a breadth of 43 cm for those who like a larger ironing surface.
  • Extra High - These are designed for taller people as the height can be set higher than a standard board.

The price will vary depending on what features that you want to have. Below we have listed the full range of Minky Ironing boards, so as you can see which one is best designed for your needs.

On the top line of each review we have included an average online buyer satisfaction score. That score is out of 100% and the higher that score is the better.

A high score means that there are not a lot of complaints about the ironing boards and that is always a good thing. Ideally you want this score to be 80% or higher.
