Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed to provide professional ironing results, Euro-Pro's steam generator iron saves time and money on dry cleaner's fees. More powerful than a regular iron, this iron sits on a 13-by-9-1/2-inch base that generates the perfect balance of steam. This steam generator can be adjusted to produce more humidity for cottons or drier steam for pressing dry-clean-only items.

To add water, unscrew the knob on top of the generator and pour in the desired amount using the included funnel. Able to hold enough water for two hours of continuous ironing, the stainless-steel generator heats up the water and sends it through the industrial-strength hose to the iron's soleplate. The power and penetration of the steam means that no arm pressure is needed to smooth out wrinkles. In addition, the steam shortens ironing time significantly and presses clothes as well as a drycleaner. The iron works at any angle so it can double as a garment steamer to eliminate wrinkles in curtains or hanging garments.

The iron has a durable, professional-quality soleplate for longevity, which rests on the steam generator's non-burn pad when not in use. Its steam button can be locked for continuous steam or pressed to send short blasts of steam for hanging clothes. The unit features separate power switches and ready lights for the iron and steam generator. Because of the large size of the steam generator base, this appliance is bulky to store and is more practical for homes with a designated laundry center. The EP8001 steam generator iron is covered by a one-year limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

Customer service is extremely poor.

To solve the problem of not being able to purchase a replacement 2" hose, I clamped the sturdy hose from the cord directly to the port on the iron.

The Euro-Pro people have a great product here, but they need to figure out why this happens to the handle.

I bought this iron despite some of the negative results, and after about a year of weekly use - wouldn't you know it - it happened to me too!

First, let me say that when this iron works, its works AWESOME. There is no better way to effortlessly iron clothes than with low-heat and steam. This iron is by far the best iron I have ever owned.

Now the flaw: Yes, I can confirm what others have complained about - the iron breaks. Steam stops coming out of the bottom of the iron and the handle gets VERY hot. I am a bit of a tinkerer, so I took mine apart. Here is what I discovered:

The steam transfer tube between the primary hose and the iron's internals is completely inadequate, and deteriorates under prolonged high-heat.

This tube, about 2 inches long, will form small holes and may sheer off completely (mine did both), although the rubber "feels" like it should be fine. When this happens, there will be less and less (if no) steam coming out of the irons steam holes on the bottom plate. Instead, the pressure leaks into the plastic handle. If it builds up enough, you could severely burn yourself, if not also cause an injury due to dropping the iron on yourself.

This is a serious defect in the manufacturing of this device, that they did not use more adequate tubing throughout the entire unit. There is an obvious tube quality difference between this 2-inch piece, from the tube that feeds in from the handle. Why they would choose to use inferior rubber for a 2-inch piece of tubing is beyond me.

I went to the hardware store and replaced the tubing with quality materials, and my unit is working fine again. This can be an easy fix for anyone inclined to dissemble their iron - but I would strongly caution against anyone buying this unit new if they are still shipping with this problem, as you could sustain serious injury because of it.

The iron was great at first, did a wonderful job, and saved alot of time. But then it broke, steam wouldn't come out and the handle became too hot to hold. We repaired it ourselves and found that the internal steam hose had broken. It worked for a short while but quickly broke again after about 3 uses. Reaching ANYONE at the Euro-pro company for help was frustratingly impossible, and their available parts and services were not sufficient to help with my problem. I would never buy ANY product from Euro-pro ever again. Customer service is extremely poor.

Just received this product and if you want to shorten your time at the ironing board this is the item you want. Linen blouse pressed out in 2 minutes. I hate ironing but based upon my trial of this item last night recommend this to anyone. The iron does not have the water so there is less weight. The steam shoots out about 18 inches. Highly recommend.

I have owned this iron for about 18 months and I tell everyone not to buy any other iron. I have used regular steam irons, probably 30 or more in the last 40 years, and this one is hands-down the only one that truly works. It is light since the water is not in the iron you are handling, the steam is plentiful and wrinkles just melt away. I can iron for about 2 hours on one fill-up of the water tank. My only suggestion for improvement is there needs to be a gauge on the water tank since it is easy to overfill the reservoir. But that is a minor inconvenience for the superb ironing that you can produce with this product. It's worth the money.

This iron can only be used up to three continuous hours a day and no more than a total of 15 hours a week.
This was purchased for my wife who sews many hours daily and
constantly uses an iron. These limitations should be spelled
out in the product description prior to purchase. We will be returning this iron because of its severe restrictions. We never bothered to take anything out of the box except the the directions. I hope Euro-Pro doesn't manufacture automobiles!

I was so impressed with this iron for the first six months. Then the handle started getting as hot as the bottom of the iron. You literally could not hold onto the handle to use it. Nothing I did made any differance. One day it was fine, and out of the blue sky, for no reason at all, it just stopped working right. The Euro-Pro people have a great product here, but they need to figure out why this happens to the handle. I would definately buy another one if this problem was solved.

I found that the intructions are alittle unclear. It doesn't tell you how much water to add at first, and there is no guage. Kind of hard to tell, and if you fill too much you have to pick it up and dump out the water. I think it would be helpful to have a way to know if you are overfilling. The iron itself is fantastic. Makes ironing fun. Takes out alot of ironing time. I love it! I ironed my entire wardrobe the first week!

I was euphoric over my iron before it started to leak fom the base and the handle got too hot to hold. I thought maybe the problem with my 18-month old iron was just a fluke until I heard from my daughter today and she described the same problem with her Euro Pro Steam Generator Iron...the only difference was that hers is less that 4 months old!! It's a wonderful iron, if you don't mind replacing it every year or less...much less!!!! I have never spent THAT much money on an iron to have it fail so soon!!
