Tefal Gv8461 Pro Express

This one is the best selling iron currently available in the UK market. It is one of the highest rated on the UK market as well, with consistent ratings of 90%. There are also several hundred reviews on this model from very satisfied buyers.

With a huge 1.8 litre tank, it also has a very smooth sole plate which delivers a great ironing experience. This one truly ticks all the boxes. The big downside is that it has an average RRP of around £160.

That clearly is not a cheap option.

If you are willing to pay that though, you will own one of the best selling steam generating iron, currently available on the UK market.

Tefal Steam Generator Iron Limescale Systems

Limescale is a huge problem in the UK. This is the scale that builds up in the bottom of kettle and irons. It is caused by the way water is treated and the quality of water varies quite a bit throughout the United Kingdom.

Many areas in the UK have what is called "hard water." That needs to be treated, but in turn that can also cause a lot of limescale to be created.

It can cause a lot of problems if not dealt with. Tefal have developed a good system and this brand will either use filters to help prevent problems, or collectors in the higher end irons.
