How does a Steam Iron work?
Steam irons work differently from dry irons. Steam irons apply steam to clothes when you use it to iron. Steam, which is superheated water, is highly effective in removing wrinkles and creases. Dry irons are not that effective in removing difficult wrinkles and creases.

The main components of a steam iron are the water tank that holds the water, the heating elements that turn water into steam and the soleplate at the underside of the steam iron through which the steam comes out. The soleplate has holes through which the steam comes out.

The steam moistens and loosens out individual fibres, thus making it easy for the pressing and heating action of the iron to smooth our creases and wrinkles.

Though all irons are basically designed to press clothes, there are a huge variety of them available. The range of designs include everything from cheap no-frills irons to advanced steam-pumping technology with hi-tech soleplates and digital displays. Though there are many fancy features and add-ons, the main thing is always quicker and more efficient ironing.

How much does a steam iron cost?
These days a steam iron can be purchased online at a pretty reasonable price. They range from anywhere near Rs. 500 to Rs. 2000.

What are the features that we need to keep in mind when buying a steam iron?

Scaling (Calc) Cleaning Feature
Steam Irons get scaling (limescaling) after using with normal water. Thus it is important to have some kind of a calc cleaning solution. Some steam irons have auto calc cleaning and some have a separate more effective calc sliding and cleaning feature. Have a look at the description to check out what feature your steam iron will provide.

A Handle that is comfortable
Even though this looks like a simple feature, sometimes the handles are not very soft and after spending a longer amount of time ironing, they may rub against your hands and make them sore. Take a look at the handle and ensure that it is soft, not too wide and will be comfortable to hold on for a longer time. The handles should not have anything rough or ridge like on them that can dig into your palm.

Water tank that is semi transparent and easy to fill
A good wide opening for the water is always helpful, and so is a semi transparent tank so that you can see the water level at all times. There should be clear fill level marks, and auto-shut off will be a great added feature for all those times when you forget whether you have switched it off or not.

Wattage and Easy Settings
If your steam iron has higher wattage, it will heat faster and steam will also be quicker, so if all other factors are the same go in for the one with higher wattage. Also important to consider is the ease of readability of the temperature controls. They should be clear and visible and there should be settings for different kinds of fabric.

Non-sticking superior soleplate
Since the soleplate is the heart of the steam iron and is where the steam comes out from, it is an important feature. Make sure that the soleplate is made of a material that is non-stick and scratch resistant. It should also have a scaling removal mechanism as mentioned before and be easy to clean, when required.

Wire length is also a consideration
Having a long enough cord will give you more room to maneuver the iron. Sometimes when ironing clothes you do need to move the iron around quite a bit, and little extra reach always helps.

What are some good brands and model of steam irons?
Phillips is a great choice and there are several models to choose from. The one we recommend is the Philips EasySpeed GC1028. Another good model to go for is the Philips GC1905.
Other brands that you can go for are Orpat, Bajaj and Morphy Richards.
