Q & As

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing - Wish I'd never bought it I bought this iron because I needed a 3m cable (which it has) and I must admit I was probably also taken in by the cool black and red colours (well, it's cool for an iron anyway). But there are a number of issues when using it when compared to Morphy Richards and Philips irons I've had in the past. If you are looking for a new iron, I would recommend Morphy Richards well above this Bosch model. So, here are the reasons why I don't like this Bosch iron. 1) It doesn't glide as easily as irons I've owned in the past. The plate simply has more resistance than you would expect, and a good glide is probably the main thing you want in an iron after a good head of steam. 2) It makes lots of loud clicking noises as the heat relay switches on and off then it gets up to temperature. It's a bit disconcerting. My old Morphy Richards was much quieter. 3) The water filling spout is too small so you have to pour water in as a slow trickle. Go too fast and the water will overflow and flood over the sides. Very annoying. 4) It is almost impossible to see the level of water in the tank. The glass is too dark so I end up overflying it every time and then having to pour a bit out again or else the steam shoots out continuously until the water level goes down to the proper level. 5) For the money, I expected this one to have a safety cut-off. It doesn't, so it stays on if left standing for too long. I don't generally walk away from it anyway and I know I should have read the spec more carefully before buying, but I thought this would be a standard safety feature at this price. I have given it 2 stars as it does do the job of ironing clothes ok. It's just not a great iron for the reasons above and I no longer look forward to doing the ironing as much as I used to. So, overall, I feel let down and will probably bin this soon if I can't return it. Either way, I'll definitely be going back to Morphy Richards or Philips next time. 23 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Drippy Bosch Iron Leaks water over the ironing board when stood up right, not what I would expect from an iron that cost that amount, is this not a safety fault water running down onto the cable 21 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Steamy! very useful and more buttons than i need. but good steamy iron, lead is particularly long which is useful. 19 April 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not good enough (in my opinion) I was looking forward to using this iron after having read it was one of the best buys with Which? and I wanted to upgrade from my old Russell Hobbs steamglide 2000. I was disappointed when I started using it. Firstly: It wasn't able to get all the creases out of already dry cotton bed linen. I had to constantly press the steam booster for it to iron properly and even then I had to resort to soaking the garment with water with the spray button on many occasions. I had presumed that this steam iron would work well on dry cotton, but sadly no. Secondly: The sole plate wasn't as smooth or as good at gliding as my old Russell Hobbs and the iron didn't have the same ease or satisfaction of use, especially as it is fairly heavy and unwieldy. Thirdly: Like other users have complained about, it is extremely hard to see the level in the water tank. My guess is, in the quest to make the iron look cool and expensive, Bosch wanted to make the see-through plastic dark - bad idea. Despite having fairly good close-up eyesight, I often had to hold the iron up to a light whenever I wanted to see the water level! After less than 2 weeks I am returning the item as it is not up to the standard I am looking for. Despite all this the customer service from John Lewis has been first class, as expected, so the experience has not been all bad. 18 April 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bosch Steam Iron Absolutely fantastic iron, the best I've ever had! Doesn't stick to anything and the steam from it is really great! I liked it so much I bought one for my mum and my three sisters have bought one each too. Highly recommended. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets through the ironing quickly! Really hot and powerful so uses a lot of water. Took me a while to get used to the handle but now that I am it makes ironing quick and easy. 05 April 2016
