Short Description of the Morphy Richards 332012

This iron has an RRP of £199.99 but you should be able to find this much cheaper online. Prices change all of the time, so don't be afraid to shop around.

This model is exceptionally good at getting creases out of clothes like no ordinary steam iron can do. That is because it delivers a lot of very hot steam and makes ironing everything so easy

Anyone with a bad back will benefit from this as the iron really does do the work.

This model, because of the high steam helps makes clothes look like new, without getting that shiny look when certain fabrics are ironed.

Another big plus is that it can vertical steam which is very useful for curtains, jackets, dresses, bed linen etc.

The water tank is huge and avery buyer said it has helped cut the ironing time in half, and that is always a very good thing.

Our Favourite Features

Large Water Tank

The tank on this is huge at 2.2 litres. It is quickly removed by using a front handle and taking it directly to the sink.

if you prefer you can also fill up at the board using the filler cap at the top of the tank.

It also has a continuous fill function allows you to top up water at any stage of your ironing.

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.

Auto Cleaning

An iron that cleans itself is quite unique, and all you will have to do from time to time is pour any limescale build up away.

Safe Carrying Lock

When finished with your ironing the iron has to cool down. We liked that this iron locks on to the base, where it can cool down, and then be lifted safely and stored away

Overall, we believe that the steam power really does quickly get rid of creases. The auto-clean feature is unique and another real time saver.

This 332012 model has variable steam settings and a 190g steam output.

The 2.2 litre tank hold plenty of water to produce lots of steam, and the iron securely locks to the base so it's safe and easy to carry and store.
