The Russell Hobbs - 24420 Power 90 Station makes a solid impression. The duration of steam creation, as well as the warm-up time, are much too long. But when the steam has been generated, the result is wrinkle-free.
The Russell Hobbs - 24420-56 Steam Power Steam Ironing Station consists of the station in plain white and a white shelf with rubber holder for the iron. The water tank at the front bottom is attached to the station and holds approx. 1.3 litres. A filter is installed in the water tank. On the sides, there is both a plug holder and a clamp for the steam connection hose. Furthermore, there is an ON/OFF switch and the steam indicator on the rear side. The iron itself remains on top. It is available in white and black. The iron also has an iron soleplate and the steam switch is located directly under the handle. In addition, the temperature control is within easy reach, ranging from MIN to MAX. The 1.67 m long supply hose is attached to the rear part of the iron. In addition, a mains cable with a length of 1.90 m was supplied.
The packaging is of very high quality, illustrated and informative. The enclosed instruction manual is detailed, comprehensible and extensively written.

At the beginning the water tank of the Russell Hobbs - 24420-56 Steam Power Steam Ironing Station is filled with water. The water tank must be completely filled to the stop. 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. It is also positive to note that this device has an ON/OFF switch. As soon as the switch is switched on, the longish lamp on the handle lights up in a bright blue and the indicator light also lights up on the rear part. Unfortunately, it does not go out again. Even after approx. 15 minutes the warm-up time does not seem to be over yet. Also negative is the fact that there is no signal tone so that the user is bound to the device during the warm-up.
On the positive side, the iron glides elegantly over the curtain to be ironed. With this appliance, the wrinkles cannot be ironed so smoothly. The heat is not sufficient. Nevertheless, the product shines with light guidance, manageability, and no discomfort during longer ironing due to its lightness.
The generation of water vapour is difficult with this product. Before steam can be produced without problems, the corresponding button must be held down for a very long time. Only after approx. 1 minute does the iron eject steam flawlessly. If the button is pressed once, a steam burst of approx. 8 seconds is ejected.
The result is almost wrinkle-free. When using only the heat, not all wrinkles are smoothed. Only with the use of steam no more wrinkles are visible.
If the ironing process has used up all the water in the tank, there is still residual water left. Then the water tank must dry from the inside.
