    I would definitely say go for a steam generator type. It will reduce the amount of time you spend ironing and they are so easy to use.

    ive got the steam gen too. NEG side takes 2 mins or so for steam to kick in. POS it makes iron a hell of a lot easier!

    If you don't want a steam generator, my mum, daughter and I can highly recommed the Tefal ordinary steam irons. Best are the ones with a high steam output and anti-drip feature.

    I have a Philips normal iron, simialr to this:
    http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4100872/Trail/searchtext>PHILIPS+IRON.htm

    It's excellent, I only have to do one side of jeans and they're crease free.
    I must admit to not being a huge fan of Tefal irons, everyone I've had has had a poorly performing soleplate and has leaked.

    Check out the 'Which' reports, yu can sign up for a 1 trial for a month.Also, you can look on Amazon and read the reviews.

    Nothing wrong with the 1800 watt Onn own brand from Asda. I had mine delivered with my groceries a couple of months ago, cost 9.90 but appears unavailable on the webiste today. It has great boost of steam for jeans & upright steaming, if you wish to steam your curtains in situ lol. Save money AND minimise ones ego all in a purchase

    My Moulinex Optimate Cordless Duo is nearing retirement and I do not want to have to buy an iron with a cord but can't seem to find any like mine available. Anyone got any ideas for me please? Many thanks
