MAIN FEATURES & BENEFITS of The GC7635/30 Model
If you are someone who just wants to get the ironing done as quickly as possible, then you should know that a steam generating iron is the way to go. This model is at the lower end of the price point and from a very good and well known brand.
This one is light and super simple to use. It is also easy to store away. Many other irons of this type are quite large and bulky and difficult to store, but this one is not. It will really speed up your ironing if you have only ever used an ordinary steam iron in the past.
It has a 1.5 litre tank which you can fill up and that should last you for around 2-2.5 hours of ironing (if you can manage that)
This iron only has one temperature and one steam setting so it delivers what the manufacturer describes as care free ironing. In real terms what that means is you don’t have to worry about the type of fabric or material that you are ironing. This iron will not burn it as it uses steam to do the work.
It also uses cartridges that help filter the water and removes all the impurities. That simply means scale will not build up in your iron and that in turn extends its life. It also means no risk of any water stains on your clothes. That is well worth considering.
- Really fast to get through the ironing
- Good value for money
- Very fast heat up time
- Compact and light
Cons & What Buyers Didn’t Like About The GC7635/30
- Some buyers just didn’t like the fact that they couldn’t control the heat of the iron
- Some thought the economy setting didn’t give enough steam
