Effortless ironing, every time

With back to school looming on the horizon all too soon, household chores, like ironing the school uniforms, are back at the top of the list. But which model will help you to make this thankless task a doddle? Clearly, the Morphy Richards Comfigrip, which has been awarded Best Buy Steam Iron for 2013.


Our products are great for helping get you ‘steam’ through for the never ending to-do list for helping get the kids ready for their return to school. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, check out these handy pointers:

1. Breakdown your to do list into categories: Stationary (all notebooks, pens and pencil cases), food (packed lunches and evening dinners for the first weeks) and clothing (new uniforms and cleaning old uniforms)


2. Find ways to make each task feel like less of a chore – you can get the little ones to draw pictures of their dream lunch box to inspire packed lunches; watch your favourite film as you do the back to school ironing or getting the kids to design their own clothes labels with a labelmaker.

We want to make your everyday life as stress-free as possible.

At Morphy Richards we are all about making your life easy with our smart ideas for your home, and our ionic soleplate helps with just that. Our new ion technology, featured as part of our new Comfigrip Iron, is designed to make your ironing effortless. If ‘ion’ means nothing to you, read on; all will be revealed!


Now for the science bit: The ion technology works by using an ionic soleplate which emits negatively charged ions, which cause static. This means you can iron without your clothes without shirts sleeves sticking to collars and without the hairs on your arms and head from sticking up on end.

The technology should take the ‘shock’ out of ironing, help you ‘steam’ through and leave all of your clothes with a pristine finish.


What’s more, the dual chamber technology, which gives you a quick steam boost for stubborn creases and pressing plate to remove any excess moisture from your clothes, ensuring they keep that ‘just ironed’ finish.

Ion technology is now available in both our Turbosteam and Comfigrip ranges, including the 301011 Comfigrip ionic steam iron. If you are interested in buying any of these irons or would like more information, then they are available now, right here on

Tackling the over-sized mountain of clothes which piles up while the kids are on school holidays never has to intimidate you again.

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.
