Vax ICC1V1EP Power Shot 200 Steam Iron


As a long term user of a variety of Vax products I was leased to find that this entry level iron was up to their usual standard. The iron is very well made of medium weight with a small to medium sized water reservoir. It has simple and easy to use buttons for steam Off/On, temperature selection, steam jet and water spray. It has an anti limescale self cleaning feature.

The hardwired power cable is placed at the rear and to the top and gets in the way a bit sometimes and a better siting of this would have been good. That said, it is easy and simple to use and the ceramic soleplate makes for s smooth gliding operation over most fabrics. The latency between turning the steam on and steam being available is between 30 and sixty seconds which is not too bad although slower than with premium products.

This is an excellent quality basic steam iron fine for most home uses.
