I am Iron man!
I'll be honest... I bought this because it looks like the sort of thing Darth Vader would use to iron his cloak! Unlike Darth Vader I cant use the force, so it's a good thing for me that this iron is easy to use, smooth and not too heavy. Lots of steam and makes short work of this boring job!
Verdict - What works well and what doesn't
I'm writing this review after using the iron a few times.. I find it’s best to capture first impressions with items like this as I tend to get used to odd quirks and start to work around them What works well # IRONING CAPABILITY - Seems very good - hot temp works well, glides well, notch for use around buttons is useful - initial finish on clothes is good. # WEIGHT - The iron is towards the heavy end of what's available - I like this! - It sounds as if the weight might require more effort to use, but I actually find having to apply more downward pressure using a light iron harder work than sliding a heavier one from side to side. # SPEED TO HEAT - the 3100W makes a difference - it's right up to top temp in a matter of seconds - this works well for me as the thing I iron most of are cotton shirts .. I actually iron very little on a low setting. # STEAM - This feature works well - but it's not a big one for me. As mentioned on the box when it arrives the iron will have a little water residue in it where the steam / spray function has been tested. I actually prefer to use a separate water spray bottle as in the past I've found water reservoirs eventually get a bit grubby and will occasionally leave a spot on a shirt (always at the end when you've ironed the whole thing!) I prefer to keep the iron clean and dry and apply water as I go using a simple garden spray bottle. What could be better # HANDLE - While this is ok I did find the steam buttons at the front of the handle got in the way a little - not to the point where it was a real problem, but it just made the handle a little less comfortable than it could have been # COILING CABLE - This is a little annoying - there is nowhere to coil the cable around the iron after use - having said that I often leave mine out in a spare room.. but not great if you need the space and want to keep it out the way - also think irons left out are extremely dangerous re small kids or pets .. so ability to coil the cable would be useful. OVERALL I like it so far - it feels substantial heats up quickly and irons well.
Extremely powerful, great buy!
Great product. I wanted a powerful iron to get rid off the diff creases (tumble dried clothes). This did an amazing job, wth it’s extremely powerful steam. I wanted to buy a big steam iron but could not because of space issue so settled for buying this. That turned out to be a great decision as this one did a pretty good job. I bough mine last year and after that have bought 2 more of the same - one for parents and another one for in laws. It has not given us any issue. Would recommend this product to everyone who wants a powerful heavy iron

No temp control works brilliantly on both cotton shirts and delicates
Irons may be a fairly mundane thing to most people, myself included, but this iron is an iron to get excited about. No temperature control, and it works brilliantly. Irons my white cotton shirts just as well as my wife's various outfits including the delicate ones that required lower temperatures on the old iron. Gone are the days of melted black bits from polyester clothing ruining white cotton shirts. This iron may well have saved our marriage. It heats up quickly too (like, less time than it takes to unbutton a shirt to get it ready to iron) It also has an auto-off. A previously life-changing purchase we made in the ironing department was a timer switch like the "Energenie 30 minute run down timer plug" so that you just push a little green button to get 30mins of ironing and never end up leaving the iron on all day. With the auto-off built into this iron we have two layers of protection to ensure the iron isn't left on by accident. And, it's cheap too.
Morphy Richards Intellitemp Iron.
I am still not sure if I actually like this iron! I do like the heavier weight. I do like the intellitemp feature, not having to stop and wait after changing the temperature like you do on other irons. I do like the 3 year guarantee with the manufacturer. However, when it comes to ironing heavy cotton duvet covers, or curtains, I feel it is just not quite hot enough. Doesn’t get them as crisp and smooth as I like. For that reason alone I give this iron 4 stars. For most day to day ironing it is fine. July 2019 - unfortunately I had to send this iron back due to the fact that it developed a fault with the thermostat and had started to ‘catch’ when ironing. As this iron is the intellitemp model I felt I did not dare continue to use the iron. I contacted Amazon and was speedily sent a replacement. I could of course had a full refund but when this iron is working it is an excellent iron. Amazing not having to switch between temperatures etc. This iron works it out for you. Hopefully the new one will be fine. Great iron when it is working!
Really good iron
Really pleased with this iron. Irons without problems transferring from cottons to temperature sensitive fabrics. One of the best irons I have used. There is a large water tank which lasts for the whole if my ironing and it is easily filled with the included plastic jug. Water level is not easy to see when the tank is full but the level is clearly visible when it starts to get low. The only negative I have found is that there is no plastic clip to fasten the cord securely around the base if the iron when not in use, but I solved this problem by taking the clip from my previous iron. Despite this negative, I have still awarded 5 stars for its ironing capabilities.

Good value and irons well.
This is a good steam iron and for the price I paid I’m well happy with it. It’s nice and light in weight not too heavy to lift and I found it very good for ironing jeans. Overall it’s a good iron at a good price.
