A higher wattage allows the iron to heat up quicker and maintain that heat during your ironing session
Continuous steam output in grams per minute. Higher output = quicker ironing
A short, powerful burst of steam to penetrate deep into creased or thick fabric
Weight of the hand iron without water. Heavier irons can be more stressful on your wrist over long ironing sessions
A ceramic soleplate will give the smoothest gliding and best scratch resistance. More expensive models might also have a special coating for even better performance
Higher water capacities will mean faster ironing with less time to stop and fill up, but can also increase the weight of hand irons
A longer cord gives greater flexibility, particularly when ironing large items. (For steam generators this figure is the cord length from the hand iron to base unit)
A safety feature that turns the iron off after a period of inactivity
Reduces limescale build-up in your iron to help prevent spitting and clogging of the steam holes
Standard manufacturers warranty period from time of purchase
Here's another Comfigrip model from Morphy Richards that features their soft grip handle - designed to be easier on the wrist and ideal for long ironing sessions. It does make the iron look somewhat hump-backed and less sleek than rivals, not that aerodynamics plays much of a part in ironing.
Power > Features
This is a fairly stripped down model in that it lacks things like an auto-off safety feature and only comes with 2 metres of power cable. It does however keep the large 400ml water tank of its more powerful cousins. Where it excels is steam output. 55g of continuous steam and a mega shot of 190g is really good for a cheapy like this.
This is a bargain basement power steamer, though if you are looking for auto-off and a longer cable but with the same power, consider the 303124 which has both. Like all of Morphy's irons, it comes with a one year standard warranty, but you can extend this to three years by registering with Morphy.
High wattage gives shorter heat up times, mega steam shot of 190g/minute!”
