ABOUT THIS IRON
Just about the most powerful hand iron produced by Tefal, it really does offer all the steam you could possibly need and is backed up by some great features to keeps it in perfect condition. Part of their premium range, made in France.
The inclusion of auto-off, anti-drip and fully automatic controls make ironing as easy as possible.
The MicroScale filter technology filters out even the smallest limescale particles ensuring that only 100% pure steam is emitted onto your fabrics, hence the 'Pure' branding.
Of course, as you'd expect from Tefal there is also a clever anti-calc system that collects all that nasty limescale for easy removal which is really useful in hard water areas that cover a large part of the UK.
While quite a heavy iron - tipping the scales at just under 1.5kg - it is not as heavy as some of its main rivals.
It is expensive too at well over £100, but do shop around as prices vary considerably. It is well made though just across the Channel in France so it certainly has a more premium feel to justify the extra expense. Hopefully this translates into long-term reliability (worth noting there is a 2 year warranty instead of the usual 1 year).

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, but generally have better crease-crushing performance
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 power cord gives greater flexibility, particularly when ironing large items. (For steam generators this figure is the steam cord length from the hand iron to base unit)
A safety feature that turns the iron off after a period of inactivity
Instead of the usual heat and steam selector dials, the iron will control steam and heat automatically based on fabric type. Some irons even have both traditional manual controls and an automatic mode so you get the best of both worlds
Standard warranty period from time of purchase (includes any extension manufacturers may give for registering with them)
