The Best Steam Irons 2016

Our ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if owner ratings suggest poor performance.

Ratings in this report start at 4.7 stars

Prices range from £40 to £85

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of steam 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 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.
