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

In Detail

THE 9000 series takes over from the extremely popular 8900 series and is Tefal's premium range, offering the best performance and all the extra features that you could possibly wish for in a steam generator iron.

HUGE POWER
This particular iron combines huge power with ease of use and even though this isn't quite the top of the range, it can deliver steam at a very high 7 bar pressure, which is just about as powerful as any other on the market.

There's a massive steam shot of 430g/minute on tap and is particularly suitable for really thick fabrics where the already impressive 120g of continuous steam isn't enough to crush those creases.

FUSS FREE IRONING
Like an increasing number of steam generators now, this one has fully automatic settings so there are no complicated controls, just 3 settings: Delicate, Normal and Jeans. The iron works out the required heat and steam for you!

PACKED WITH FEATURES
There are a number of other useful features to make ironing easier such as an auto-clean soleplate, safety auto-off and the ability to lock the iron to the base unit to make it easier to carry. The cable retract system, while handy, is only manual - what a wind-up!

Tefal's great and easy to use calc collector device is also present - just pull out the slider, empty, rinse and put back - it's that simple.

This steam generator is ideal if you're a power user who regularly needs to iron large amounts - the steam power and ease of use will be worth the price premium over a less powerful model.

Premium steam generator with powerful steam output and lots of useful additional features
