If you have a large family, then one of the things that you will definitely be inundated with is laundry. Washing and drying it is one thing, but once you have done this, you are going to need to iron it before you can fold it and put it away.

This can be a very time consuming chore indeed. More often than not, standard irons are simply not adequate enough and can really add a lot of time to the process. However, there is a solution in the form of the steamer iron.

These types of irons are far more effective and offer much more power too. If you don’t know what you are looking for because you have never used one then you are probably going to find it difficult to find the best. This is why we have tested and reviewed what we think are some of the best steamer irons on the market right now. Please read on below.

3. Morphy Richards Steam Generator Iron

Features: 2.2L Tank – 190g Steam Output – 2400w – 4.94kg – Auto Clean Feature

Pros:

  • Very good tank capacity.
  • Powerful 190g steam output.
  • Good energy rating.

Cons:

  • The steam iron is quite heavy at 4.94kg.

The Review

The first model that we have decided to add to our list of the best steam generator irons is this one from Morphy Richards. Knowing how reputable this brand is when it comes to home appliances, we were expecting very good things from this steamer iron and we were not disappointed.

The first thing that we were quite impressed with is the capacity of the water tank. At 1.9L it is one of the biggest on the market at the moment. This means that you get a longer output of steam which is perfect for larger families.

Another thing that really impressed us with this Morphy Richards steam iron is the steam output. At 190g we found that it was very powerful indeed and cut the time that we had to spend ironing almost in half. It also has an energy rating of A which is great.

The only issue that we really had with this steam iron is that it is a little heavy. At 4.94kg, you can definitely feel the weight after using the iron for some time. This isn’t really an issue but could prove difficult for someone with mobility issues.

Overall, we were really pleased with this model and would definitely recommend it.

Cons:

  • The iron is quite heavy.
  • The water tank is quite small at only 1.6L.

The Review

Next on our list of the best steamer irons is this model from Tefal. This is another well-known brand of home appliances, usually associated with the kitchen, so we were intrigued by this Tefal steamer iron. After using this one, we were very impressed with the results. There are a couple of features that really impressed us which is why this takes number 2 on our list.

First of all, we’d like to talk about the steam boost feature. With the steam boost, you are able to maximise the steam output to 500g. This, in combination with a wattage of 2400 makes the steam iron very powerful indeed. We were able to get through piles of laundry in no time at all.

Another thing that we really liked with this steam iron is the removable scale collector. This allows you to make sure that the iron is kept as clean as possible and that it doesn’t collect lime scale and dirt. We found this feature to be highly effective and really impressive.

Overall, this is a great choice for those who have large amounts of laundry to get through on a weekly basis.

The Review

Number one on our list of the best steamer irons goes to this one from Philips. We already expected very good things from this model because we have reviewed a lot of Philips appliances in the past and always been very pleased with the results. Thankfully, we were equally as impressed with the results that we got from this steam iron.

The value for money that you get with this model is fantastic, especially when compared to some of the other steam irons that we have tested. First of all, we really liked how easy this steam iron was to use. We had no trouble setting it up or using the steam boost feature.

The steam boost feature is perhaps one of the most impressive features of this steam iron. We were actually really surprised by the amount of power that it puts out. Another thing that we liked was the Calc Clean feature. This made cleaning the iron so much easier.

Overall, we were highly impressed with both the design and the features of this Philips steamer iron and that is why it takes the top spot on our list of the best steamer irons today.
