The Tefal steam generator irons are some of the most popular, leading models available. Let’s take an in-depth look at what the Tefal Pro Express Turbo GV8360 steam generator irons have to offer…
- Do you dread ironing so much that you put off doing it for as long as possible?
- Have you ever found that your ironing piles up and, when you eventually get round to doing it, you find a skirt/trousers/shirt that you’ve hardly worn, but the weather has changed and it’s now too hot/cold to wear it?
- Have you ever bought an item of clothing for your children but they’ve only worn it once or twice and now that you’ve found it at the bottom of the ironing mountain they’ve grown out of it?
My friends and I admit to all three of these scenarios (and more besides!) before we started using steam generating irons. I currently use my favourite Tefal GV8330 steam generator iron but have looked at the Tefal Pro Express steam generator irons and couldn’t resist the opportunity to do some extensive research and write a review so I could compare them both.
Firstly, I have to say that I used to think an iron was simply an electrical appliance to remove creases from clothes but now realise I was mistaken! Steam generator irons actually have a whole host of features and benefits which, not only allow you to achieve the same quality finish as you would expect from using a professional service but also make the chore of ironing much quicker and easier.
Reduce your ironing time by up to 50%
The great thing about steam generator irons is that they really can reduce your ironing time by up to 50%!
As a bit of a sceptic, I didn’t really believe this until I started using one for myself. But, having used one for some time now, I have to admit that it really is true. In case you’re wondering how this is possible, it’s all to do with both the amount of steam that is produced and the pressure at which the steam is forced from the iron onto your fabrics.
The Tefal 8360 Pro Express Turbo can produce up to 120 grams per minute (120 g/min) of continuous steam. This is at the higher end of what you would expect from a high-quality steam generating iron and is more than adequate to get your ironing done quickly.
Furthermore, the Tefal Pro Express Turbo GV8360 steam iron has an extra steam boost feature. This gives you 200 grams per minute (200 g/min) for those extra difficult fabrics and stubborn creases.
As I mentioned, the pressure which forces the steam from your iron is also important in making sure you’re able to reduce your ironing time. A 5 bar pressure measurement, like this Tefal GV8360 has, should be considered an excellent rating. This pressure will ensure that the steam is able to penetrate both sides of your garment at the same time and you should no longer have to spend your time ironing the front and back of each item of clothing.
In case you’re wondering what happens if you’re ironing delicate fabrics and don’t need all that powerful steam, you can control the amount of steam, according to your fabric requirements and it can also be switched off, for fabrics that need to be ironed without steam.
