Our verdict

The Russell Hobbs 20630 Powersteam Ultra tackles the most stubborn creases with ease. It can take your best jeans or favourite linen trousers from your heated clothes airer to a freshly ironed washing pile in mere minutes and it'll vertically steam your soft furnishings too.

Updated with an improved glide, it has a powerful spray function, large 350ml water tank, button grooves and a 210g burst of steam that experienced ironers will appreciate. You won't have to worry about accidentally leaving it idle either as it will automatically shut off - ideal for busy households.

When is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday 2023 is officially 24 November, but as we've seen in recent years, retailers tend to kick off their sales a few days or even weeks beforehand so it's well worth keeping an eye out for bargains throughout the whole month. During the sales event, MNHQ's deal hunters will be beavering away to source savings on products that we know Mumsnetters love and recommend.
