The Tefal FV5235 is fitted with a spring assisted cord, which will not get in the way when ironing, and a stabilised heel with anti slip material, meaning there is less chance of the iron falling onto the plate side accidentally. The water tank is fitted with anti-limescale technology, to keep the iron running reliably, and the base is anti-drip, so there will be no annoying puddles of water when steaming on a low setting.
With being quite a powerful steam iron, the water does get used up quickly, especially as the tank is only 300ml in size, which is fairly small compared to similar models. This also causes problems with the amount of steam produced, which could be better. The water inlet is easy to use though, so refilling periodically alleviates some of these problems.
Overall, this is a very versatile, very easy-to-use iron, which promises to be a reliable appliance for your household.
