Hopefully everyone read our last Morphy Richards review which was for the Power Steam Elite if not why not? You will have read that we were impressed with that model so we was hopeful that we’d also like this one.
This second review is for the Morphy Richards Comfigrip with Ion Technology which on first impressions looks very pretty not like the usual lumps of plastic that they call irons.
You may well have seen the TV adverts if not here is a little peek for you.
So what makes this iron so different?
The soleplate is an Ionic finish with Trizone technology. It is 2400w meaning it has a quick heat up time, it has a variable steam and you can also use it as a vertical steam. It also has anti-drip, anti-scale and an auto shutoff which comes in very handy.
Now this all sounds very fancy but it’s no good if the actual iron is rubbish…well luckily it isn’t. Now as you may remember ironing is not my strong point so this was mostly words from my wife.
The way our house is set out we only seem to have plug sockets were we don’t need them so with our previous iron this meant using an extension lead but with this iron it comes with a long lead which is 3 metres long.
When it comes to actually ironing it cuts through the creases with ease and with the comfigrip even if you end up ironing for a couple of hours if doesn’t get uncomfortable. The iron is a little heavier than I’m used to but it’s not over heavy and but it’s not so heavy that it aches your arms.
It doesn’t seem to make a difference what item you’re ironing it copes with easy, jeans, shirts or bedding are handled without any problems.
This is now our iron of choice and our old iron has now been thrown away and this is our everyday iron from now on.
For more information about the Ion Ironing please take a look at the Morphy Richards website.
The Comfigrip Steam Iron Ionic TriZone Soleplate is available for £59.99.
We were given this iron for the purpose of this review, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
