330001 Features We Like

Our Favourite Features

Large Water Tank

The tank is massive at at 2 litre. This iron also has a water spray function which you don't find on many models of this type of iron.

A one litre tank lasts about 2-3 hours

Vertical Steaming

This iron produces a lot of continuous steam which is perfect for vertical steaming.

Great for hanging curtains, freshening up bedding and even mattresses.

Buyers say this is very good for removing odours as well.

Easy Maintenance

This model uses a replaceable antiscale cartridge. This helps to maintain the life and performance of your steam generator by filtering the water you use, providing a longer lasting performance.

Ceramic Steel Soleplate

The soleplate is made from Ceramic and is one of the most durable and long lasting on the UK market.

Overall, we believe that the steam power really does quickly get rid of creases. The soleplate is one of the best types so no need to worry about snagging.

This 333031 model has a soft grip handle for comfort, is not all that quick to heat up, a useful water spray and a 160 grams of constant steam output. It can also generate a steam shot of 300g, one of the highest we have seen.

Morphy Richards Brand

Morphy Richards is an extremely well known brand in the UK. They make a range of household apliances such as toasters, kettles, steam irons and steam generator irons.

They have a UK customer care team (0344 871 0944) and they stock a wide range of parts for their products. They formed back in 1930 and were bought over in 1980 by the CFI Group.

More homes in the UK have some type of small appliance from Morphy Richards than any other brand.

The 330001 model is for certain priced for the first time buyer. It doesn't have a lot of features and really not a great deal can go wrong with it. It has the same UK price point as a higher end steam iron, and it is certainly an upgrade from those.
