In this guide we will explain which iron is best to choose based on your needs, ranging from domestic irons to those for professional and/or industrial use.
You will find out what are the differences between the various existing iron models, which features it is essential to take into consideration when choosing and how to choose the iron based on the use to which it is made.
Ironing systems are mainly distinguished between irons with an internal tank and irons with an external boiler.
Irons without a boiler, i.e. those with an integrated internal tank, consist of a single block. In this case the iron includes, inside it, the water tank and the steam chamber and the control buttons are positioned on the iron itself. This allows for smaller overall dimensions and greater ease of use but this is equivalent to less power, a smaller amount of steam produced and a smaller water capacity which results in a limited autonomy of use.
These are irons suitable for domestic use in the case of small quantities of items to be ironed.
The iron with boiler is larger, equipped with an external water tank and consequently has greater capacity and greater steam production at high power. These are irons with professional results. If you are looking for the best iron for large quantities of garments capable of perfectly removing creases and giving impeccable results then an iron with boiler is the right choice for you.
Thanks to the presence of an external boiler, once the water temperature is reached, it will remain the same for the entire duration of the work, maintaining the same correct pressure. Furthermore, since the water is located in the separate tank and not inside the iron, the weight is very low, requiring less effort.
This type of iron is equipped with a large separate tank that pumps water directly to the plate, transforming it immediately into steam thanks to contact with the high temperature of the plate itself. There is therefore no boiler but a vaporization chamber that uses cold water.
These are steam irons that allow the ironing of the garments while keeping them hanging on the hangers. This type of irons are ideal for those who don't particularly like ironing and who prefer speed and practicality to total crease removal. In fact, if it is true that on the one hand the results are inferior to ironing on a board, these irons are light and compact and allow you to iron simply and effortlessly.
Irons with external boilers can be divided into three categories:
The characteristics to analyze when choosing the most suitable iron for your use are:
