I’m not a fan of ironing but I do like to see that clothes are rightly ironed. No half-baked job for me. I dislike seeing creases in pressed clothes and when I iron, I try to ensure that these are negligible. Obviously, I do like to try out new products especially ones that ‘redefine’ ironing. No surprise that I was whooping with joy at being sent an Atomist iron from Morphy Richards to review.
With a hefty price tag of £249, here’s how it added up –
It is very stylish almost futuristic in design. It is extremely lightweight and when I picked it up the first time, I did wonder how it would get the work done. I am used to ironing with heavier irons. The water tank area is also not huge so the entire product occupies much less space than the steam generator that I am used to. I love the glass sole plate.
I did find the thick cable from the tank to the iron a bit in the way but hopefully that’s only because it is so new.
It uses much less water than a steam generator so I’m not rushing back and forth to fill the tank. It is supposed to use 75% less energy because it does not need to form steam.
I will not lie – it did take some time getting it to perform the way I thought it would. At first, it just seemed to work like any other steam iron but then I worked it out and began to see results. Since it is light, you do need to apply slightly more pressure to iron out creases. The best way is to keep the mist flow pressed and iron quickly and sharply over creases.
It warms/heats up rather quickly and it managed to perfectly iron some rather difficult shirts belonging to Hubs.
I like that it is limescale free as even though I would descale my iron quite frequently, there have been marks left on the clothes on occasion.
Overall, I think the Atomist is an effective, quality product and I would have no trouble recommending it.
