Possibly the best steam generator iron in the world, the La Vaporella XT100C from Polti is our Best Buy for achieving professional results in literally minutes. Polti developed the very first steam generator iron for domestic use so they’re the true experts, and are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. This intelligent iron has 6 programs with optimum temperature and steam power automatically pre-set for different fabrics. The Universal program is ingenious, readying the iron for any kind of fabric from silk to wool to jeans without having to adjust the temperature – no more dividing your clothes before ironing, no more waiting for the iron to warm or cool. There are LED indicators on the iron handle, so you can continually know whether the system is heating up, ready to iron, cooling down or out of water. The multi-directional curved soleplate with anti-scratch coating allows 360° easy-glide ironing, easily navigating obstacles like buttons, collars and pockets, and the high-precision tip reaches difficult places, with a concentration of steam in this area to smooth out difficult creases. You can also goodbye to really stubborn creases with the Turbo program, which eliminates them in just one pass thanks to the powerful steam from the high-pressure boiler. Double-click the steam button to get regular pulsed steam without having to continuously press the button – great for vertical ironing of curtains, coats etc. Only with La Vaporella is the boiler guaranteed by Polti for 10 years against damage caused by limescale.
