Two years - still going strong
My wife picked this up in one of those"special buys" at Aldi and its still going great. Its debatable whether an iron actually needs and LCD read out but this one has one and it works well. More importantly the iron is a decent weight and glides through the clothes well. No sticky hot plate problems otr anything - would buy again - good product.
Good Iron Works Well
This is a good iron. It feels good in the hand to use and glides nicely over fabric. It heats up well and keeps a good control of the dialed up temperature on the LCD. Steam works well too - no leaks or spits and the cord length is more than I need. I am entirely happy with this and would buy the same one again if needed
Questions & Answers
Drops water when steaming.
What's wrong & how to fix
Didn't have that problem but used proper ironing distilled water so maybe that helped. If it is still in warranty I would return it due to the problem I did have of not being able to dock it on the recharge stand eventually.
Our Aldi sourced iron had the same problem which got progressively worse until the automatic cut-out circuit failed due to water ingress in the cut-out relay. Our problem was largely due to the shot-of-steam function, failure of the rubber seal around the shot-of-steam plunger in the hot plate was allowing steam to also penetrate back into the body of the iron condensing back to water and hence dripping, if you don't use the shot-of-steam it may not drip water but still the iron is not working as it should and is failing prematurely, it should work for at least ten (10) years. Distilled water may not overcome this problem, I have not looked at the seal to see why it is failing but at least distilled water will not cause deposits from dissolved calcium or other iron compounds that may be in your normal water supply. We have always used regular Melbourne tap water and have never had a clothes iron fail as quickly as this Aldi iron, ours usually last 12-15 years.
