If you would like to see some more steam irons, then I recommend reading top steam irons in India.
The heating power of a steam iron decides how easily the clothes get ironed. An iron should support a wide range of temperature so that garments can be ironed at required temperature. Some materials such as Nylon need low heat otherwise they get charred and stick to the iron and some materials such as cotton or linen require a high heat. In general, the heating guide for all garment types are as shown.
- Linen: High
- Cotton: Medium – High
- Wool: Low – Medium
- Polyester: Low – Medium
- Silk: Low
- Nylon: Low
The GC 1905 has a power rating of 1440 Watts. This is a high enough setting for all homely ironing requirements and should suffice for the whole range from Nylon to Linen.
There are 2 steam related factors that decide a steam iron’s goodness.
- The amount of steam produced. This will help remove stubborn creases by the press of a button. Those fold marks which sometimes behave like they were created by a road roller can be removed easily with a lot of steam.
The GC1905 can produce 17g of steam per minute. Also, has facility to reduce steam flow if required. This steam capacity is great for almost all creases.
The length of steam produced. This feature directly depends on the water tank capacity. Bigger the tank, longer the iron can produce steam. But, bigger the tank, heavier and bulkier the iron becomes.
The GC1905 has a water tank with a capacity of 180 ml. So, doing some math, it should be able to produce continuous steam for atleast 10.58 minutes. This is definitely a large number as we will not be using steam all the time. So, the steam will definitely last until all the clothes have been ironed.
- 1440 W
- 17g steam per minute
- 180ml water capacity
- Water spray capability – Spray small amount of water before ironing out stubborn creases and wrinkles
- 1.8m, 180° swiveling cord which should stay out of the way during ironing
- 2 Years warranty
