The new professional steam generator from Bosch, TDS25 cuts ironing times by a huge margin over traditional irons. Steam generators are the choice of thousands of ironing professionals and those with large families. And if you rather be doing something other than ironing, then the TDS25 steam station is the product to buy. Bosch eliminated the main shortcoming of steam generators – the time you have to wait for the water to heat up. By making a smaller heated tank that is continuously fed with water from a larger reservoir, Bosch cut the heating time to mere two minutes. This professional steam generator also comes with superb Inox Glissee sole plate, one of the smoothest available, gliding effortlessly over clothes as the steam powers its way through creases in the heaviest fabrics. High-volume steam output, extra-long 2 meter hose and a removable iron pad, tank-empty and steam-ready indicators and overheat protection make this the ultimate ironing machine. The price is £180.
