How does it work?

We begin by building a list of steam generator irons with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco. This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the steam generator irons with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion. We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars.

After sorting the list by ratings, we compile the following Top 5.

Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Our Notes on this Market

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.
