Laurastar Lift Portable Steam Generator Iron, Red

Product information

Introducing a new way of ironing with the Laurastar Lift portable steam generator.

Compact and light, Laurastar Lift is the first steam generator with a handle that lets you take it everywhere, from the ironing board to the clothes hanger. It is as effective for a final touch on a hanging garment as for ironing a shirt on the board itself.

Laurastar Lift is ready to use in just 3 minutes so you can wear your beautifully ironed shirt in no time at all. It automatically turns off after ten minutes of non-use for peace of mind.

Laurastar’s exclusive professional soleplate diffuses an ultra-fine yet powerful steam that adapts to all fabrics and enables vertical steaming. Steam pressure is constant which allows you to take on the most challenging creases. Its rounded shape also helps to prevent unwanted creases.

Smart features of the Laurastar Lift include:

  • Easy to carry handle
  • Secure compartment for the iron
  • Steam cord storage
  • Removable 1.1L water tank
  • Easy to place on the floor with its feet
  • Insulating mat for warm iron


The Laurastar comes complete with an Anti-scale filter and a protective soleplate for delicate fabrics.

Q & As

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Iron & Great JL Service I've had a previous Laurastar steam generator iron (the "SteamUp" model) for over 10 years without any faults or problems, and it's been a marvellous iron. So, I ordered this new Laurastar Lift (Red) iron as a replacement at midday last Friday and it was delivered by 09:15hrs on Saturday morning on John Lewis's next/named day delivery service. Excellent service JL, thanks. This new model performs much like my previous one, though it does seem to have a slightly greater steam output despite the specifications being the same. I did read the other reviews, and decided to proceed with my purchase based on my own experience. I just hope that the new Laurastar Lift model is as reliable as my old SteamUp. 13 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product but... I too bought this iron a year ago from JL. I found it really fantastic, but almost 12 months later I encountered the same problem with the handle falling apart, so it is clearly some design flaw. As I am not resident in UK I contacted Laurastar directly and they picked up and repaired the iron and returned it for free. During its absence I used a conventional iron and there is really no comparison when it comes to it's effectiveness. I'd still stand by it despite the problems and there was very good customer service provided by Laurastar. 27 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Handle falling apart Having read the reviews on John decided to look at the iron in store. Upon close inspection it was obvious the front part of the handle was coming apart even on the display model. Very disappointing for such an expensive item. 17 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Powerful iron but Really liked the look of this but not for very long. It is very powerful iron but the construction of the handle is bad. After owning it for just over two months the handle disintegrated exposing wires. Returned it to JL and purchased a different brand which is superb. 22 April 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by very disappointed in a potentially great product by far the best ironing equipment we have ever used domestically and we are in the garment manufacturing business! BUT unfortunately the unit we purchased earlier this year was returned to JL after approx 6 ironing sessions due to the boiler overheating and causing violent steam jets & scalding water running out of the iron, exchanged for a new unit because we still believed in the product, tonight after one month's use the same thing happened, boiler overheated, buzzing, steam & scalding water everywhere... then it just popped and blew a fuse, will take it back to JL this week and pick up a more conventional product and brand. btw we have not seen this issue in any uk reviews but noted some laurastar boiler issues with international reviews. 18 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Iron Ever! This is the best iron I have ever used! I will never purchase another brand. It is powerful, easy to use, cuts my normal ironing time in half, and I love the design. I have had this iron for months and have not had any issues thus far. 12 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Technical fault After only 6 weeks of use the handle on the iron fell apart. The handle became jammed in a constant steam mode and so it was necessary to switch the iron off at the base for safety. There were wires exposed in the handle which I considered to be dangerous in light of the steam generated. I would not recommend this iron. I took the iron back to John Lewis who, after some persuasion, agreed to refund my money so I could buy a replacement. Good service from John Lewis. 10 November 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Faulty Design Fantastic iron, light and very powerful. But..... have using the iron for a couple of hours the handle became loose and shortly after came apart,. Put it back together but it continuing to come apart. Returned to Peter Jones,no quibble and was offered an exchange of money back. As the item was out of stock, opted for a different product. Having read some of the other reviews, it is obvious this is a faulty design!!! 10 September 2013
