Best Buy - steam irons

LauraStar Evolution I-G5

We pick the best steam irons out there

Tefal GV8431 Pro Express Autoclean €329

Steam irons are useful for getting rid of creases. The two winners in our review are both bulky and expensive, but come highly recommended. The Tefal GV8431 Pro Express Autoclean is an enormous industrial-style iron that has won many best-buy awards in Europe. Which? magazine calls it "a powerful, top-spec steam generator iron", while Tefal highlights that it has a useful "quick-start" feature, which means it is ready to go in a speedy two minutes. The Tefal GV 7250 Express is another award-winner from the same stable.

LauraStar Evolution I-G5 €450

Another steam iron that is much bigger and more expensive than usual, but has received rave reviews around the globe. Fans say this powerful ironing system will significantly reduce ironing time, thanks to a powerful 3.5bar of steam pressure which releases steam automatically as you move the iron forward across your garments. Like the Tefal, it has a super-fast heating time of just three minutes.

Philips GC3335/02 €65

A simple, straightforward iron in bright colours that comes highly recommended and won't break the budget ahead of Christmas.
