Resumee

The Speed Iron - Steam Iron Station by Klarstein is one of the worst devices in the test and the ironing result looks accordingly. It is also too heavy. Nevertheless, the steam is very strong and the device has a drip stop.

Pro

  • Non-slip feet
  • Warm-up time very short
  • Strong steam boost

Cons

  • No ON/OFF switch
  • Iron somewhat heavy
  • No wrinkle-free result

Ironing results only satisfactory but good handling and safety.

The device

The Speed Iron - Steam Iron Station by Klarstein consists of the station in turquoise and white as well as the handle, also in white, and a turquoise shelf for the iron. The water tank at the bottom of the front is attached to the station and holds approx. 1.7 litres. A filter is installed in the water tank. The carrying handle has a snap-in function so that the device does not rock back and forth when carried. On top is the iron itself, which is white with a shiny turquoise bottom. The iron also has an iron soleplate, a status lamp for the heating element and the steam switch is located directly under the handle. In addition, the temperature control is within easy reach, ranging from MIN to MAX. At the back of the iron, there is a 1.60 m long supply hose. In addition, a mains cable with a length of 1.70 m was supplied.

The packaging has a nice appearance, is illustrated and informative. The enclosed instruction manual is detailed, understandable and structured. Unfortunately, it is only available in German and English.

  • Station

The application

Klarstein steam ironing station
Thermal image of the Klarstein steam ironing station - The heat distribution of the iron is relatively even

In the beginning, the water tank of the Klarstein - Steam Iron Station is filled with water. The water tank should be completely filled. This counts as a negative point because otherwise no water vapour can be generated, so the user cannot decide for himself how much water he needs. Then the mains cable of the station is connected to the socket. Here it is to be noticed negatively that this equipment has no ON/OFF switch. As soon as the plug is plugged in, the indicator light lights up. This light also goes out again when the appliance is completely heated. However, the heating process was already finished after approx. 1 minute. This is also reflected in the test. Negative is also to be noted that, unfortunately, no signal tone sounds so that the user is bound to the device during the heating up.

The iron glides pleasantly over the curtain to be ironed. With this device, the wrinkles are rather difficult to smooth. The heat is not sufficient for this. Nevertheless, it is positive that the product is easy to handle. In terms of weight, it does not perform so well: for longer ironing, the product is somewhat heavy.

The subject of the steam, unfortunately, poses a problem. The appliance took a whole 10 seconds to generate steam. But then it was very strong and very suitable for vertical steam.

The result, however, is not wrinkle-free. When using the heat alone, the wrinkles are not properly smoothed. Even with the use of water vapour there are still a few wrinkles to be seen.

If the ironing has used up all the water in the tank, there is still residual water left. Then the water tank must dry from the inside.
