By  Enda McLarnon

Thanks for taking the time to read our review of the highly rated Tefal GV8932. There are around 25 different steam generator models available from the Tefal brand in the UK market. This model came out as the highest rated of all the models available.

It is expensive though, with an average UK price of around £230-£250, depending on where you make your purchase. It is one of the most expensive in their entire range. That price will put many buyers off, but according to those who have bought it, the ratings speak highly of this high end model. This model is packed with features all aimed at making your ironing faster and easier.

Who Would Buy the Tefal GV8932?
