Clothes iron...'Digital'...Does not compute.

What the hell does that thing do, anyway? In addition to getting the creases out of your clothes, does it do your taxes and fly the space shuttle as well? That is one seriously tricked-out beast.
I'd only like it to plug itself in and get to work! Most of the new ones are digital. Since the last time I saw a new iron must have been 20 years ago, I was caught by surprise myself. The new ones do feel flimsy and plastic-y compared to the older types though. Nothing special really:
  • 2400 watts.
  • Steam output 40g/min.
  • Shot of steam 100g/min.
  • Capacity of water tank 250ml.
  • Anti-scale.
  • Anti-drip.
  • 3m power cord.
  • Weight 1.15kg.
  • Ceramic soleplate with button groove.
  • 4 pre-set programmes.
  • Pre-set programmes include: silk, wool, cotton and linen.
  • Uses tap water.
  • Front fill.
  • Water level indicator.
  • Water spray.
  • Variable steam.
  • Vertical steam.
  • Self-clean.
  • Auto shut-off.
