Top 8 Best Steam Irons in India 2016

Philips GC1905 Steam Iron - I am using this one !
Ironing is an essential chore in every household. Most of us spend almost 3 hours per week on ironing. To make the process of ironing a breeze, you must have a good iron.

In this post, I will tell you about what is steam iron, how to select the best steam iron and which are the best steam irons you can buy in India.


What is Steam Iron?
Steam Iron is different from a dry iron in the sense that it applies steam to clothes while ironing. The steam is superheated water which eliminates wrinkles easily from clothes unlike dry iron.

The steam iron has a holding tank where distilled water is poured and heating elements convert the water into usable steam. The steam comes out through holes from the soleplate in the bottom.


The steam helps in the sense that it moistens and loosens out individual fibres and making it easy for the iron's pressing action to smooth out wrinkles.

How to Select the Best Steam Iron
1) Wattage : The higher the wattage of the iron, the quicker the ironing by the iron since higher wattage means high steam output. But a more hot iron demands more handling care.

2) Soleplate : You should look for a iron whose soleplate is non-sticky, easy to clean and scratch resistant. Soleplate is important since it comes in direct contact with the clothes.


3) Convenient Controls : The iron should have a temperature control for different types of fabrics and it should be easy to see and effective.


4) Steam Control Button : The iron should have a button to control the flow of steam. It should have settings to turn the steam off, low or high. Also make sure that there are enough number of vents spread evenly on the soleplate to distribute the steam and making de-wrinkling your clothes easier.


5) Cord Length : A longer cord length will give you more maneuverability, making ironing more comfortable and flexible.


6) Comfortable Handle : The iron should have a comfortable handle since it acts as the interface between you and iron. It must be smooth to grip and not wide for you to hold comfortably.


7) Water Tank Capacity : If you tend to do a lot of ironing at the same time, choose an iron with a super-size tank so you would not have to refill the iron in-between the ironing.


8) Swivel Cord :  Higher the swivel cord degree, better the flexibility you get while ironing.
