If you still don’t have a mod­ern iron that saves you work and speeds up the iron­ing process, it’s time to get a new one. Such a gift will delight any house­wife and will def­i­nite­ly come in handy in every­day life.

Hoover TIF 2800 is not a sim­ple iron, but a unique mod­el with a cool­ing sys­tem. And the first thing that catch­es your eye is the unusu­al design of the device. Stand­ing on four legs, the iron even looks a bit like a rock­et at the start.

Hoover is an Amer­i­can home appli­ance brand and a sub­sidiary of Can­dy. It was Hoover who first released a vac­u­um clean­er and has been doing this for many years. Today, the man­u­fac­tur­er is not lim­it­ed to vac­u­um clean­ers, but does not for­get about its roots: even the Hoover iron has a small motor.

This is what makes the Hoover TIF 2800 spe­cial: the built-in fan sucks in air that escapes through the side vents and cre­ates a cool cloud around the han­dle. When work­ing with steam, this becomes a real sal­va­tion, because in the con­di­tion­ing zone the hand does not feel the increase in ambi­ent tem­per­a­ture, and the whole iron­ing process is much more com­fort­able.

The fan is locat­ed at the back of the iron and is hid­den behind the grate. It does not always work, but is turned on by a sep­a­rate but­ton locat­ed above the pro­peller. So you can eas­i­ly turn it off if you are not going to iron for a long time.

Hoover TIF 2800 reviewOf course, the Hoover TIF 2800 is not as loud as the aver­age vac­u­um clean­er, but in a qui­et room you will def­i­nite­ly hear how its motor works. How­ev­er, if you turn on some music or open a win­dow with the street hum­ming behind you, you won’t notice the uni­form noise of the pro­peller.

As for the rest of the func­tions, every­thing is pret­ty stan­dard here: sev­er­al tem­per­a­ture set­tings for iron­ing, steam release and sprin­kler, self-clean­ing func­tion and pro­tec­tion against the for­ma­tion of drops and scale. And if you get dis­tract­ed and leave the iron on your clothes, they won’t burn. After 30 sec­onds with­out mov­ing, the Hoover TIF 2800 stops heat­ing up and auto­mat­i­cal­ly turns off (dur­ing test­ing, this fea­ture saved us from ter­ri­ble con­se­quences a cou­ple of times).

The world's first propeller iron!  Hoover TIF 2800 reviewTo use steam, water must be poured into the iron. Inter­est­ing­ly, the vol­ume of the Hoover TIF 2800 tank is 300 ml, and the device comes with a mea­sur­ing cup of only 200 ml. So if you want to fill the iron to the max­i­mum, you won’t be able to do it the first time: you have to find anoth­er glass or run twice to the tap. As with many devices, only tap water can be used.

Fill­ing the iron with liq­uid, we found a small draw­back of the mod­el — the tank is not trans­par­ent enough, and it is very dif­fi­cult to see the water lev­el.

The world's first propeller iron!  Hoover TIF 2800 reviewHoover IRONFLOW heats up in just 30 sec­onds: when the sole­plate tem­per­a­ture reach­es the required lev­el, the indi­ca­tor on the iron han­dle goes out.

All func­tion­al but­tons are locat­ed so that even small female fin­gers can reach any of them. What is espe­cial­ly con­ve­nient is the steam adjust­ment slid­er, the posi­tion of which can be changed depend­ing on the type of fab­ric.

The world's first propeller iron!  Hoover TIF 2800 reviewWith cot­ton and linen Hoover TIF 2800 copes “with a bang”, smooth­ing out even dense folds with ease. The nose of the iron is nar­row enough to iron cuffs and shirt col­lars. In extreme cas­es, a spray bot­tle can be used. Just keep in mind that the jet will be strong and will fly much fur­ther than the area in front of the nose. There­fore, we advise you to slight­ly raise the iron and direct it your­self in the right direc­tion before spray­ing water.

The world's first propeller iron!  Hoover TIF 2800 reviewThis mod­el also sup­ports ver­ti­cal steam release — this can be use­ful when remov­ing wrin­kles from cur­tains or hang­ing clothes. We test­ed the func­tion and imme­di­ate­ly aban­doned it — the iron is too heavy to hold it up. Still, with a full tank of water, the mod­el weighs as much as 2.1 kg.

A full-fledged Hoover TIF steam­er will not replace: the release of steam in a ver­ti­cal posi­tion is not con­stant, but from the but­ton — no more than three strokes in 5 sec­onds. To steam one blouse, you will not only have to pump up your mus­cles hold­ing a heavy iron, but also spend a lot of time.

The world's first propeller iron!  Hoover TIF 2800 reviewBut for clas­sic hor­i­zon­tal iron­ing, the large weight of the iron is only a plus. The ceram­ic sole­plate glides eas­i­ly over clothes and does­n’t require any extra effort on your part to smooth out wrin­kles.

The wire of the Hoover TIF 2800 is long (about 2 meters), and it is con­ve­nient to store it by wrap­ping it around the legs of the iron. For this pur­pose, there is a spe­cial clothes­pin on the cord, which holds the entire struc­ture and pre­vents the wires from twist­ing.
