Market Insight

The UK steam generator market is of medium size and quite complicated to navigate. There are many products with similar model names and numbers. They had some subtle differences in features – and some not so subtle price differences. As with many reports we compile, the models varied across the websites we use to collect rating data.

We made a shortlist of 30 or so steam generator irons, which tells us this is generally a quality marketplace with many satisfied owners. It was only after we calculated the scores across the four sites we use, that we created the above top 5.

This is our first product report where all the best models score 4.7 or higher.
