How to choose an iron? What do we pay attention to when buying?

Power. Most of the models on sale have a good capacity to handle tough, dense fabrics. In this case, the power must be at least 2,000 W.

The surface you are ironing. It is worth taking a closer look at irons with ceramic, Teflon soles. There are interesting options with a coating of steel and titanium, which are worth taking a closer look at, however, their cost will be much higher.

Sole shape. This is very important when ironing small parts. Collars, space between buttons, small pockets – all this can be well processed with a thin iron spout. Pay attention to the presence of steam holes on the tip of the iron, which should be pointed.

Weight and dimensions. If you are a fragile woman and you have a large family, then choosing a heavy device is not entirely wise. Your hands will get tired when ironing a pile of clothes every day. But a lightweight iron is also a dubious choice because it may not iron thick fabrics. Choose a model with an approximate weight of about 1.6-2 kg.
