Tefal GV9563 Pro Express - The Features Buyers Like
All irons basically do the same thing and that is of course iron the wrinkles and creases out of clothes. They work simply by heating an element, which in turn heats the sole plate. Irons then have a water chamber, and this also gets heated up to produce steam.
Steam generator irons then take this basic model to the next level. With these you get a large water tank that sits as a separate unit. The iron sits on top of that and uses the water from the tank to turn that into highly pressurised steam.
It is this steam that quickly cuts through creases and wrinkles. There are different types of steam generator irons, some are very basic and cheap, and the better ones have other key features. This GV9563 is at the high end of the feature range.
Large Water Tank
Most water tanks on steam generator irons are anything between 1-1.5 litres in size. That is enough water to be able to iron for anything between 1-2 hours. This model has 1.7 litres and that is enough for about 3 -3.5 hours of ironing, before it needs to be refilled.
That of course saves you having to walk back and forwards to the sink to fill it up. In addition to that, this tank is removable and that means you only have to take the tank to the sink, and not the whole iron.
The one thing that wrecks most irons is limescale. That is the white corrosive powder that you find at the bottom of irons and other kitchen appliances like kettles. This happens when minerals in the water react with the metal in the appliance.
Many steam generator irons will use cartridges or filters to help prevent limescale build up. That means they will need changing over time. Some other irons simply have nothing at all to help with limescale.
The good news about this one is that it has automatic descaling which keeps your iron clean, and also saves you the work.
Our Verdict on the Tefal GV9563 Pro Express
Hopefully we have provided you with enough information to decide if the Tefal GV9563 model is the right one for your needs.
Buyers clearly like it as the high satisfaction rating shows. It is at the higher end of the price point for sure, but it is very high quality.
This is an efficient iron that heats up quickly and also glides quickly over the clothes. Buyers did like the large tank as it saved them doing trips to the water tap.
