Loved it - at first!

3/5
I purchased this to replace a previous tefal which had served me really well for a number of years. At first glance this iron is fab. Great steam output, no faffing with controls, easy to use and lightweight. However I am on my second one in a number of weeks and will be returning this one today as it has the same fault as the first. Even with steam switched off, it produces steam and every so often, shoots large bursts out, whether it is in use or resting back on its base. Probably not a huge problem for some but with children about I find it very worrying that it can do this. Going back to an older, more reliable model instead!
