Differences Between a Standard Iron and a Steam Generator
Steam generators are more powerful than standard irons, meaning they are generally quicker than normal hand held irons and can reduce ironing time by up to 50%
Added power in steam generators means increased steam shots, helping reduce the effort required to get rid of stubborn creases
Steam generators can hold more water than a conventional iron therefore allow for longer ironing time before refills
Steam generator irons are lighter to hold as the water is held in a separate tank
Steam generators generally have better anti-scale devices which means they stay cleaner and at higher, consistent working performance levels for longer
