If ironing isn’t your chore of choice then Russell Hobbs’ 2600W Steamglide Professional is the ideal tool to make light work of a tough job. With its ergonomic styling and sleek good looks, this is one iron that’s as easy on the eye as it is to use. Its soft touch comfort grip and ceramic soleplate, enable you to smooth even the most stubborn creases in hard-to-iron fabrics like linen and denim.
The 21370 Steamglide Professional features a ceramic soleplate which is durable, non-stick, and offers superior heat distribution for efficient heating and cooling. Ceramic soleplates give an excellent, smooth glide, for quick, effortless ironing.
If you’re looking for something that will tackle the tough stuff, then the secret’s in the steam. The Steamglide Professional produces 40g of continuous steam or you can give a quick blast with the 120g shot of steam – particularly handy for those washing line-dried jeans. As well as steam, it can be used as a dry iron and there is also a water spray built in for tackling creases in very dry fabrics.
The generous 300ml water tank giving you enough capacity to steam ahead with your ironing rather than spend your time filling up at the tap. The water tank is also easy to fill and transparent so that you can see when you need to refill.
Russell Hobbs knows that cord length is an important factor when buying an iron as it can either hinder or help when setting up. With the consumer always in mind the Steamglide Professional has an extra long 3m power cord to allow you to iron from wherever you so wish.
The super handy self-clean feature of the Steamglide Professional helps to prevent a build up of limescale inside the iron allowing you to purge left over water and scale from the iron. This function works by creating a concentrated burst of steam which forces limescale out through the steam holes.
For added practicality the 21370 Steamglide Professional features a vertical steam function allowing you to rid hanging garments or fabrics from creases. This is particularly useful for items such as curtains and suit jackets which can be notoriously difficult. An adjustable thermostatic control allows you to alter the temperature depending on the fabric you’re ironing and the anti-drip feature helps to prevent water dripping onto fabric, avoiding damage to garments from water drips that would otherwise mark clothes.
Ease of use & peace of mind
To offer comfort whilst ironing the Steamglide Professional features a soft grip handle and temperature dial. The iron also has a non-slip heel for extra stability. For added peace of mind, the auto shut off feature ensures the iron switches off if it is left for a period of time if you forgotten to switch it off at the plug.
