Tefal Pro Express Total GV8930 Steam Generator Iron

Product information

Created for fast ironing, the Tefal GV8930 steam generator iron is ready to tackle your pile of clothes. Thanks to its one touch setting and smart technology auto control; this steam generator combines the optimum combination of temperature and steam for each fabric. 3 settings, including, normal, delicates and jeans provide quick results.

A 6 bar pressure gives maximum heat as well as a 2-minute heat up time and up to 310g/min of powerful steam. A generous 120g/min of continuous steam comes as standard from its 1.8L removable tank, so you can soon make light work of even difficult fabrics.

The GV8930’s unique Autoclean soleplate with precision shaped tip glides effortlessly over fabrics, so even the smallest or most difficult areas will soon look well pressed. Water can be added anytime to the easy-fill tank - before, during or after an ironing session - without having to wait for the iron to cool down.

An upgraded anti-calc collector prevents the formation of scale build up ensuring better protection for your iron. With power cord and steam hose storage compartments you can keep the cord away from your clothes, providing hassle-free ironing at all times. An eco setting, auto off function and an iron safety lock tops off this model.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great iron My old iron died on me it was also a steam generator iron but not as good as this one it really blasts the steam. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great iron great iron, irons well ,good steam would recommend better than the polti 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never thought that I'd love an iron! I bought this iron after using one belonging to my mother and being extremely impressed. I have always loathed ironing, but I have to say that this iron reduces the time spent by at least half. No constantly changing the setting, filling it up, using a water spray on linen and jeans. Highly recommended. 18 November 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Heavy & Uncomfortable If you've never had a steam generator iron before then no doubt you will like this product. It offers great value for money. Its robust and irons well. The lock design is good and strong. However, I found this iron heavy and also the handle to be very uncomfortable (its not long enough) - the end of it impresses into the palm of the hand after a while. If you do many hours of ironing then this is not ideal. This product was not well packaged either. 17 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Neat and Tidy Although heavy, this is a very good iron. It irons well and as a large water tank. The leads tuck neatly away into the slots at the side of the iron and there is a leaver that locks the iron onto the base, making it easier to carry. 15 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like a hot knife through butter from the fridge! We had bought a Bosch Steam Gen a couple of years ago and reverted back to our normal iron after a couple of weeks. Took a punt that getting the right Steam gen was better than an iron and did more research this time round - this one didn't come up as the best (3rd in lots of reviews) but was definitely the best value out of the top 5 by far. My wife woke up early today just to get some shirts out the tumble dryer to iron... Would recommend! 05 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Speedy and accurate This is my third steam generator iron and so far it's great. I like its power and great steam delivery, along with three temperature settings - suitable for most fabrics. The Jeans setting is great for stubborn cottons, Normal does superb job with everything else. One smooth wave of the iron and no repeats - speedy. One tank of water lasted for 3 king size changes of sheets, 12 shirts, 5 trousers and few smalls - efficient. I like the secure lock to keep the iron in place - great for storage. Also, the secure 'foot' makes it easy to stand it on the board. The soleplate glides easily on the fabric and its pointy tip gets into creases and pleats with no trouble. The iron is much quieter than I expected. Apart from occasional boiling and sucking noise, it is quiet enough to watch TV while doing the ironing. Issue 1 - when the water ended, steam wasn't delivered but the Water Tank Light DIDNOT flash. Not sure if it's faulty iron or that I have missed something - I will have to monitor it. Also, I found the removal of the water tank for filling a little cumbersome. It was just a pull. I was worried that all the little plastic parts might break. Issue 2- the whole generator is very heavy, especially when the tank is full. I found it difficult to move it, so positioning it in the right place is essential (to me anyway). Issue 3 - the power cable storage is naff. It's easy enough to take it out, but very hard to bend it back in its little storage compartment. I would much more prefer to wind it up around the bottom of the iron (like in a tradional irons) or have a button to retract it (like in a vacuum). But this does not effect the iron's performance in any way. This iron is solid, powerful, easy to use, efficient and really, really good. I am happy with my choice 15 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Appalling Can't believe I have to give this product one star. First iron bought online from john lewis was perfectly packaged but upon opening had gaping jagged hole in base plate that iron sole plate sits on. Had to return to store at cribbs causeway, who were brilliant and exchanged plus refunded £10 for fuel costs. Took the replacement home only to find that the iron never stayed at operating temperature causing water to literally pour out of sole plate using up entire tank of water and soaking everything put near it. Spoke to Tefal who told me it was a clear fault and return it to john lewis. Again, brilliant service from JS, and a third unit was taken home. Week two of using 3rd iron which had been working perfectly up to now, iron reaches temperature but hot water starts to pour from base of unit flooding table and carpet. Having lost total faith in the brand it had to go back...... I'm really disappointed as this product has great reviews and I bought it on a price match which was a great deal. Tefal customer service a waste of time with phone line ringing out and being cut off today. Have used Philips for several years previously and will revert to brand now. What a shame. Only positive thing about the whole experience was dealing with John Lewis who can not be faulted. 31 July 2014
