I purchased a Laurastar Magic iron 4 years ago and it cost me over £400. After just over two years it stopped working. They charged me £92.15 saying that it was an electrical fault. 18 months went by and the same thing happened. They cannot tell me what is wrong with it this time around and said that it needs a new boiler and a new iron is recommended which would cost me a total of £215. Apparently they said that a brand new iron and board costs £499.99. This means that if the new boiler +new iron cost £215 the table alone costs £285. What do you think? If I have the boiler and the iron replaced this ironing system would have cost me £715 in four years. Note that when I bought it I was told that it would Last me over 10 years and that unlike others on the market it does not require any cartridges to take care of scales. Having said that we also have a scale clarifying system through our pipes. Also our iron is purely for domestic use for just two adults. Has anyone had any problems of this nature? Please help. I don't know what to do. This seems to be a VERY VERY EXPENSIVE ironing system.
