Tackle that back-to-school ironing pile with the Power Steam Elite

By Janelle Hardacre | 19/09/2012 | Posted in Garment Care, Ironing, Steam Generator Iron, Back to School

It’s that time of year yet again. The summer holidays are over, which means the kids are heading back to school.

While you’ll probably be thrilled to have a bit of quiet time during the day, much less appealing is the back-to-school ironing pile that’ll be building up by the end of this week!

Here at Morphy Richards, we’ve got the perfect solution to the problem; our Power Steam Elite 2400KW Pressurised Steam Generator.

The Power Steam Elite makes ironing a breeze, as it helps you tackle the mammoth pile of clothing even quicker. It boasts 4.5 bar pressure and 145g steam, so you can get even the most stubborn of creases out of clothing – a real bonus when your little angels have been busy messing up their neatly ironed clothes all day!

There’s an extra-large water tank on the Power Steam Elite, which means you can iron for longer without needing to refill it, speeding up the task in hand. When you do need to refill, the control panel will alert you and you can do it straight away, without it needing to cool down first. These little time-saving quirks make ironing far quicker.

Another great thing about the steam generator is that you’ve got a choice of three variable steam settings to choose from. This means you can be efficient in your ironing, picking the level of steam depending  on how difficult you think the pile will be to tackle.

Steam generators are the most advanced irons on the market, designed to make sure your clothes are steamed constantly as you go. This means all the fabrics are softer and smoother than normal, and the creases disappear even quicker.

With this huge list of advantages, there’s no excuse not to get your hands on our Power Steam Elite to make tackling the back-to-school ironing pile feel far more achievable! You can purchase it direct from the Morphy Richards website for the reduced price of only £89.99.

By Chris Bennett | 22/06/2012 | Posted in Ironing, Steam Generator Iron

Looks like there’s some happy customers at Argos who have bought a Morphy Richards Intellidome. 100% of them say they would recommend the steam generator to a friend and one glowing reviewer says it’s ‘The best I ever had’.

Bev from Derbyshire said:

“Would recommend this iron, Cuts your ironing time in half. Has three steam settings so irons shirts quickly and easily,you can fill with water whilst still ironing so no time wasted. I had a non-pressurised steam generator iron before but this is far better”

Loretta from Hertfordshire was also impressed:

“I choose this item for the unique design. My old iron used to take roughly 4.5 hours to get through the weekly laundary, I could safely say it has now been cut down to 2 hours max!”

The colours are great red white and black, there is no other iron I have seen with the same design! It is in it’s own league and cannot be matched!

Lorraine thought:

“Sped through the ironing very easily, iron very lightweight”

Want to see if Intellidome can cut your ironing time in half? We are offering Home of the House proud readers a £60 discount until the end of March! Just type in HOTHP3660 at the check when you buy your Intellidome from our Morphy Richards online store.

Full steam ahead! What is a steam generator?

By Janelle Hardacre | 22/06/2012 | Posted in Ironing, Steam Generator Iron

For lots of us, ironing is one of those chores that we try to avoid as much as possible. So often we push the thought of an overflowing ironing basket to the back of our minds and pull out essential items for a last minute ironing session.

People are always on the lookout for ways to cut down on the amount of time spent on the most tedious chores like ironing and that’s why we’ve found that steam generators have been growing massively in popularity year on year. So often we keep hearing “Once you try a stream generator, you’ll never go back!” and that’s because steam generators can cut ironing time in half and make steaming through your ironing pile a breeze! If you usually set up your ironing board for a 2 hour stint on a Sunday afternoon, with a steam generator you could be packing away and hanging up your pristinely pressed garments within an hour. That could be a time saving of nearly two whole days over the course of a year!

But what exactly is a steam generator?

A steam generator looks a lot like a traditional steam iron but with a noticeable difference – it sits on top of a large water tank which can stay on your ironing board or sit on your worksurface depending on your own preference or where in the house you do your ironing.

Steam generators, as the name suggests, produce huge amounts of steam which relaxes fabric and makes tackling creases much easier. There will be no need to iron both sides of a garment with a steam generator.

Also, because the water is stored in a large tank, you won’t have to keep filling it up and that means that the iron itself is much lighter than regular steam irons.

Our innovative designers at Morphy Richards have been working on the next generation of steam generators – Intellidome. Lovingly nicknamed ‘The Starship Enterprise’ at Morphy HQ due to its futuristic design, Intellidome can power through creases with its powerful steam output, its intuitive LCD screen lets you know how to take care of your iron at all times and it can even be used vertically to steam garments and curtains.

If you want to know more about steam generators, one of our in house experts has kindly demonstrated all Intellidome’s design features in this video. Take a look.

If you’d to like to put Intellidome to the test yourself, we are offering Home of the House proud readers a £60 discount until the end of March! Just type in HOTHP3660 at the check when you buy your Intellidome from our Morphy Richards online store.

Intellidome review from professional ironer – Gill Knight

By Janelle Hardacre | 20/06/2012 | Posted in Ironing, Steam Generator Iron

Gill Knight

The lovely people from Morphy Richards sent me an Intellidome to try – why? Because I run The Smoothing Iron, an ironing service based in Stone Staffordshire, and as an expert in the field they wanted my opinion.

I was VERY impressed. The weight of the iron itself isn’t great so your arm isn’t tired from lifting the iron during use. But don’t be fooled! The weight doesn’t affect the quality of ironing produced.

The steam generator is easy to fill, holds a large amount of water for a long session. If you don’t use it all – the method to empty the reservoir is simple and efficient.

This is the beauty of the Intellidome. Once you use the steam facility then even the hardest, stiffest cottons can be smoothed into submission. The powerful jet of steam goes right through the fabric – and even out of the bottom of the ironing board!

There are a great deal of features on the Intellidome; they all work well and are intuitive to the user, so what may appear complicated at first sight really isn’t.

So we at The Smoothing Iron can highly recommend this product.

A first class result for our professional service.

Iron out your stresses

By Janelle Hardacre | 20/06/2012 | Posted in Ironing, Steam Generator Iron


For most people ‘housework’ would be pretty high up on the list of what gets us stressed out and frazzled. The mental list of household chores and admin jobs can often seem endless and leave us feeling like throwing in the towel. But believe it or not, a simple household task like ironing can actually help to relieve tension and stress. Don’t believe us? Keep reading for some top tips from ironing lovers.

Tidying or organising mess and clutter actually makes your mind feel less cluttered and it’s been said that the repetitive action of ironing garment after garment can actually be therapeutic!

We’ve spoken to a selection of ironing ‘lovers’ and asked them for their top tips on how to make ironing a relaxing and even enjoyable experience.

  • Sitting down to iron makes you subconsciously feel like you are taking a break. Keep everything at arms length so you don’t need to run around looking for spare coat hangers  for instance, and if you’ve got a steam generator you won’t even need to refill the tank.
  • Put on a favourite film or DVD boxset. Even if you are concentrating on achieving crisp collars and perfect creases (and not really watching the screen), you’ll feel like you are taking time out. Similarly, why not call an old friend for a catch up and put the phone on speakerphone. By the time you’ve hung up you’ll be surprised how much of your ironing pile (and the latest gossip) you will have got through!
  • Allow yourself a treat for every ten garments. Break up the pile with a cup of tea and choccy biccy and admire your handy-work.
  • For an even more relaxing experience, why not try using some scented reed oils for some added ‘aroma therapy’? Plus, you’ll have a bit of extra luxury when you crawl into your beautifully fresh, crisply ironed sheets.

Intellidome Steam Generator

Pros: Easy to set up, Good design, Robust, Simple to use
Best Uses: Blouses, Handkerchiefs, Pillowcases, Shirts, Trousers

Really easy to set it up and use, just pour in the water, switch it on and away you go. All the usual settings and temperatures. It has a handy steam switch under the handle which is very convenient. The finish that you get is really professional and so much better than is achieved with cheaper products. Very clear illuminated panel on base unit and easy to follow instruction manual.Yes it is a bit bulky, but aren’t all similar products too? The water level indicator when filling could be clearer, but a small gripe with what is an excellent product. Get one you will not be disappointed with your investment.
