Eurosteam Steam Iron w/Boiler Tank & Lint Brush Attachment
I purchased this iron a few months ago for my husband and he absolutely loooves this iron.he loves the fact it's heavier and the steam is amazing....so recommend you buy this iron.
BEST iron ever owned
Because it is so different, you must take the time to read instructions and view video.I've never had to do this in 50 years of ironing. WOW was it worth it. I will never use any other iron.
What a disappoitment!
I purchased this iron about five months ago. Loved the concept. Loved the idea of not having to set the temperature and not having to fear scorching my clothing. But my excitement was quickly thwarted. I only iron a few items at a time but still have to constantly refill it. It doesn't iron through several layers as demonstrated (I tried it!), and it leaks right through my ironing board onto my floors. Still, because I couldn't return it, I kept using it, getting more and more frustrated by the inconvenience of shutting it down to refill and waiting for it to reheat. Then it started spitting. Now there is a constant volcanic eruption of steam from the boiler chamber rendering it too unsafe to use. $150 dollars is excessive for an iron that lasts less than 5 months! I am shocked that this poorly designed iron got any good ratings at all, and disappointed in QVC for offering it to its trusting customers.
Ironing made easy
I do not understand the negative reviews. This iron is great as it effortlessly works on different fabrics with no scorching. Initially I was afraid to use on silk and other delicate fabrics, but this iron works great. I am not a fan of ironing this product has definitely made the chore much easier.
I took the iron out of the box turned on the video and knew I should not have purchased the iron. I had no idea you had to go through so much to iron. It's going back. I will continue using my regular old iron. I put water in it, plug it in and iron.
Great on thin, delicate materials
I bought this mainly to use on my dresses, most of which require special cleaning and have delicate trims. I also plan to use it on my work clothes and other dry clean or hand wash items. I've always preferred steamers to irons since they're much easier on clothes and can be used on practically all fabrics and trims. I've only been able to find long steamers with the hose attachment, but those aren't very portable and take up a lot of space.
I was hoping to use this with the dresses on hangers like they showed on the presentation. The silky dresses only took 1-2 passes. The heavier materials, however, took a lot more work. I'm going to try it with an ironing board bc I believe that will make it more effective.
I did the priming as listed in the directions, and had no water issues when I steamed my dresses. They were a little damp, but by the time I finished the next dress, the prior dress was dry. The steam didn't last long (2 thin dresses and 2 heavy dresses), but I think that mostly had to do with the heavier fabrics and not using an ironing board. If you iron a lot (I don't), it might not be your best option.
I will say, this iron is HEAVY if you're trying to use it while the clothes are hanging. I'm young and not at all a wimp when it comes to hard work, and my arm is still tired hours later. I scoffed at other reviews that mentioned this, but now I get it. Again, I think the ironing board is the way to go.
It does takes some time to heat up. I just turn it on while I'm still doing other chores, then come back to iron when it's ready. My 1 regret is ordering purple. The colored plastic looks very cheap and doesn't reflect what I paid. The item itself seems very durable, and the weight tells me it has a strong interior.
Best Iron Ever
This iron works exactly like the demo. Follow the instructions and prime the iron before your first use. I own a Rowenta and it is also a great product but the Eurosteam makes ironing quicker and easier to accomplish - now I enjoy ironing. Thank you Eurosteam for a very fine product.
Waste of money
water turns grey no matter how many times you drain & re-fill
I had to send back
This is a great concept but I sent it back. After 45 days the steam would escape and I had it tightened as hard as I could get it. Luckily it was the holiday gift return policy so I had more than 30 days to try it.
Felt I had been misled by the demonstration
My favorite household chore has always been ironing and I have enjoyed many compliments on how well I iron. But not with this iron. Every item I ironed looked like a beginner had been practicing. I bought it for myself for Christmas, so am returning it and ordering another Rowenta to replace my old one that was no longer giving good service. This Eurosteam iron simply does not steam enough to do a good job, runs out of steam too quickly and is difficult to refill due to having to wait for it to cool down. I want an iron that heats quickly and this one doesn't, one that I can refill easily and this one doesn't, and one that has enough holes for steam to be distributed over the entire garment as you iron it. This one has 3 holes, what a design flaw that is. The Teflon also pushed the starch off the collar of my husband's white shirt onto the cover of my ironing board in clumps. I have never seen that happen in all my years of ironing. I was looking forward to using the brush attachment for pressing trousers and jackets, but not enough to keep an iron that I dislike so much as this one.
I love ironing even more!
I've always enjoyed ironing, but this iron is awesome! Now I fly through everything effortlessly. It heats up lightning fast. I'm even able to steam things that are hanging up to freshen them. I like not having to figure out if I have it on the right setting or not. It comes down to just what steam level you want to use. You can't make a mistake or burn items by mistake. (I purposely left it on an older shirt to see, an not so much as a mark!) I love this iron!!!
Worst purchase ever from QVC!!!!
I bought this this summer and it came in while we were on vacation so it was a while before I tried it so was past the 30 days and I could not return it. It spits water no matter what I do. My clothes are soaking wet! I read all the instructions carefully before I used this iron and did everything exactly as it said. I don't normally write reviews but feel so strongly about this iron that I felt the need to tell everyone DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
