Ironing is less of a chore with the Breville VIN209 steam iron. With a very powerful 2400 watts (W), it produces more steam and has a reduced heat-up time compared to lesser watt models helping you plough through your pile of laundry very quickly and efficiently.
The job is made even easier thanks to the VIN209's ceramic soleplate which provides a smooth glide through the creased and crumpled clothes so there's no need to work up a sweat when tackling the chore.
A fundamental principle of ironing is the more steam, the better and so the higher the steam ratings of the iron, the better it will be to use. An iron's steam ratings determine how easy it will be to use, how effective and efficient it is and therefore how much time you can save to do other, more exciting things with your time.
The VIN209 has an impressive 40 grams (g) of constant steam, also known as steam per minute, which is the amount of steam generated by the iron when in normal use. In addition to this, there is also a shot of steam, specifically 100g for the VIN209. This works as an extra boost to help remove those stubborn creases that refuse to budge or give that added crispness when creating creases on trousers. Completing the trio of essential steam features is the vertical steam function. This allows the iron to be used vertically to steam hanging clothes such as dresses or suits or household fabrics such as curtains, so however difficult, delicate or unwieldy the item, it can be thoroughly and properly ironed with ease.
The Breville VIN209 boasts other handy design features to help you breeze through the work. These include:Anti-scale: This function helps prevent the build-up of limescale in both the iron and on the soleplate to keep it performing at its best for as long as possible.
Anti-drip Iron at low temperatures without any unwanted drips from the soleplate that can cause ugly, nuisance marks on your clothing and affect performance.
Self-clean: A cycle that flushes out impurities from the water via the holes in the soleplate.
The iron features a 250 millilitre (ml) water tank so you can store a fair amount of water without having to constantly worry about re-filling it and is fitted with a 2 metre (m) cord making it easy to move and handle when in use.
The handle has up-to-temperature illumination giving a quick and easy indication of when the selected temperature has been achieved so it's not too hot or too cool for your needs and in a striking and sophisticated fashion.
