Rated 1 out of 5 by Ironing Bored from Great when it works. Bought this in January 2018 to replace similar Morphy Richards steam generator. Went for this as it was on offer on the Morphy Richards website for about £140 and although there were cheaper models of a similar specification, I thought the self-clean system would be worth paying for as my other iron had to be unbolted and rinsed out which was a bit of a performance but not the end of the world. All was well to start with, and the iron did it's self-clean ritual every few times I used it, but I noticed that the water it cleared out was nowhere near as cloudy as what I used to get from my old iron. After a few months the iron began spitting brown water out the sole plate at will, something I think is due to the fact I cannot unbolt this model and flush it out like I could with my last one. The self-clean cycle cannot be started manually, it will only do it when it decides it needs to and only then from stone cold. So if you start ironing and the descale lamp comes on, there is nothing you can do until the whole thing is stone cold, and that can take hours. Using the iron when the descale lamp is on will only make the problem worse. Sadly, the attitude of Morphy Richards customer service has plummeted in recent years. It used to be very good but when I enquired about a new rubber seal for the bolt on my old iron a couple of years ago, they told me I had voided my warranty by removing the bolt and only admitted they were wrong when I pointed out all of this was in the instructions and I had only done as it said. Consequently they were no help this time either and I got so fed up with this iron staining clothes and ironing board covers that I have bought yet another new iron and took great delight as I watched the scrap metal man drive off with this one earlier today. I never waste money like this but I have got nowhere fast. Never again will I buy direct from a manufacturer as there is only one point of contact - at least if I had gone through a retailer I could exercise my statutory rights for a repair which Morphy Richards have refused me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Amandajane from Great but don’t expect them to last I have been loyal to Morphy Richards steam generator irons over the last 5 or 6 years as I do love the product and they work extremely well - when they work. Ian a busy mother of 3 so I always have my iron handy but unfortunately for the price tag, which is Hugh, they always seem to fail me at between 1.5/2 years and I think they should have a longer lifespan than this, I’ve been through a number of them for various reasons and use the recommended water in the correct quantities religiously but even this model has started leaking, bleeping and randomly switching itself from the highest steam setting to the lowest. I’m so disappointed as I don’t think I can afford to switch to the next generation expensive model and it’s out of warranty. So these irons are great but sadly it’s only short term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reecyroo from Steam Elite Only used once so far but happy with results.I don't seem to disappear in a cloud of steam like my old one. Main attraction for me is the self clean feature as I found descaling my old one hard to do due to arthritis in my hands. Delivered super quick and for free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teddy14 from Converted! A much lighter weight steam generator, very quick to heat up, and push buttons to adjust steam levels, which are much better than the dial on other models. Love the removable water rank, and de-scaling is so simple! Having used a steam generator iron for many years, this is the first Morphy Richards one I have purchased. We bought direct from the Morphy Richards website and couldn't be more impressed with both the product and the service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drobcar from Great Iron Although very light and easy to use this is a powerful steam generstor iron which makes short work of anything thrown at it. Like the fact that it self cleans/ de scales on a regular basis
