For those who sew at home, this ironing table will be a great help. In my case, this is exactly what happens. Heating, an air cushion, a steam extractor are really necessary, convenient and useful bonuses.

De’Longhi ADS 3600

Our rating of the best Italian ironing board continues with the functions of blowing, heating the surface for ironing and vacuum technology for processing fabrics with steam. The ironing surface is covered with a special cotton fabric resistant to heat. There is a place (heat-resistant strip) for short-term «parking» of the iron without fear of burning. There is also a traditional metal panel for installing an iron or steam system when ironing. The board is equipped with a blower function, which forms an “air cushion” above the work surface, it lifts fabrics and knitwear and guarantees their gentle processing. For better penetration of steam into the fabric layers, the vacuum mode is used; when it is activated, light delicate fabrics “stick” to the board and do not form wrinkles when ironed. To dry clothes and linen during ironing, the heating of the working surface is turned on. The length of the cord is 1.8 m. The birthplace of the brand and the manufacturer is Italy, the warranty is 2 years.

Main advantages:

  • Large working field: 500×1600 mm.
  • The presence of an outlet on the device for connecting the ironing unit.
  • Convenient activation of modes by switches located directly on the ironing board.
  • Easy folding-unfolding, height adjustment (up to 95 cm).
  • The chrome-plated support legs have plastic wheels for easy movement of the device.
  • Compact stable vertical storage.
Minuses:
  • Big price.
  • Decent weight: 15 kg.
  • Sleeve board not included.
  • Supercharging, heating and vacuuming are not regulated.

I think the most versatile ironing device is not a steam generator, but a good iron. And in the company with such an active ironing board, it makes an impeccable tandem with an excellent process result.

Leifheit AirActive Express M

A good ironing board for use with steam generators and steam irons. But even with an ordinary iron, she will show herself from the best side. The blower function creates an air cushion between the fabric and the board, such ironing prevents the occurrence of creases, fairings, for example, in velvet, velor, velveteen. Vacuum is useful when processing thin, sliding fabrics, they “stick” to the board and do not reach for the iron. At the same time, moisture suction dries both the board and the fabric, removes excess moisture from the surface. Works from the mains. The size of the board is 118×38 cm. The country of manufacture is the Czech Republic.

Main advantages:

  • 6 height levels with switch lever, maximum board height 1 meter.
  • Supercharging, vacuum, controlled by one button on top of the table, convenient for left-handers and right-handers.
  • Vapor permeability of the board, effective for steam ironing.
  • Stand for steam station, with socket and holder for steam hose or iron cord.
  • Cotton cover on the work surface.
  • Anti-slip foot pads to keep the floor intact.
Minuses:
  • Undemocratic price.
  • Weighty item: 7.8 kg.
  • There is no small board for ironing sleeves and narrow places.

Comfortable and stable ironing board. Easy to disassemble and assemble. I rarely use supercharging, but I practically don’t turn off the suction (vacuum), the steam from the iron passes through the fabric and is discharged through the board — efficiently and simply.

This is the best ironing board in my opinion. It’s not that suddenly there was a desire to iron more often, but the former negative in the “anticipation” of unpleasant and difficult work is no more. Don’t regret the money spent.

Chayka IS-3600

This model has everything to get into the ranking of the best ironing boards: active blowing and suction of steam (vacuum), heating of the working surface. The design is foldable, has several height options (adjustable with a lever), but even at the top level — 1 meter — it remains stable, even with a heavy steam generator on a stand. Particularly pleased with the strength of this ironing board. The reverse side of the coin is a significant weight, so it is better to store the board near the installation site, or when moving, lean it on the wheels with which one of the supports is equipped. The ironing board has a socket (16 A) for connecting an iron or a steam generator. Ironing surface: 120×45 cm. Warranty — 2 years.

  • Pressurization, suction, heating of the ironing table.
  • Simple key and slider controls.
  • Large stand for the steam station.
  • Spectacular chrome-plated metal frame.
  • Compact when folded.
Minuses:
  • Heavy (15.5 kg).
  • There is no small board for ironing sleeves, but it can be purchased separately.

Large comfortable board: infrequently when ironing you move the bed linen, and the trousers, folded, can be placed completely on its surface. A single fan is used for blowing and exhausting, but it copes well. I always turn on the heating during ironing so that moisture does not stagnate under the cover.

The best built-in ironing boards

Shelf.on Iron Box XL

An ironing board hidden in a closet is convenient, comfortable and, above all, aesthetically pleasing. Especially when the cabinet is floating in the air, because it is suspended at the required height (75…79 cm), it is possible to “catch” the height thanks to the adjustable support leg of the board. But there is one “but”: you need to place this cabinet in a place that you don’t want to change often, the cabinets have very little mobility, and it requires a pair, or even a quartet of strong male hands, drills, drills and fasteners. But you can fit such furniture “with filling” into almost any interior: there are design options with a sliding door or a swing door, with or without a mirror, as well as with imitation of various types of wood for the body. In addition, one of the eight offered images or any one at the request of the buyer can be applied to the mirror. The board unfolds to form a large ironing surface, and folds just as easily. In the lower space of the cabinet, under the board, there are two small shelves for ironing supplies or an iron. Cabinet dimensions: 180×50.5×18.5 cm, weight 36 kg. Brand of a furniture factory in Moscow.

Main advantages:

The apartment is small, furnished in a minimalist style, and such a thing is very handy. It looks like a built-in closet. The ironing board is comfortable. It’s a pity there is no stand, you have to use an overhead platform for ironing.

Asko HI1153

This built-in module from the famous brand helps to save a lot of space. The price tag is quite high, which is quite understandable by the premium status, Swedish production and “sharpening” for use in combination with Pro Home branded washing and drying machines.

The size of the ironing table in working condition is 93×31 cm. The color of the box in our case is white, but there is a titanium version with the letter T in the marking. A sleeve platform can be used as an additional accessory. The transformation mechanism is strong and reliable. Installation instructions are detailed and clear.

  • Possibility to adjust the extension length;
  • Folding work surface;

The presence of a cable holder, a folding bracket for hangers, a pull-out section, and a linen shelf adds comfort. The working surface is by no means small — 126×45 cm.

I like. The board is wide, but does not take up much space. For sheets, duvet covers, a pull-out shelf is convenient. Everything is made firmly and thoroughly, and it is not difficult to transfer. For the money, this ironing board is a good choice.

Nika Valencia 2

In this case, it is not necessary to support a domestic manufacturer only out of a sense of patriotism. The Nika brand has long enjoyed well-deserved popularity, and the specific Valencia 2 ironing board in Russian retail is one of the leaders in terms of sales. The reason is high quality, not inferior to «foreign» counterparts, excellent equipment and quite a reasonable price.

The ironing table is made of metal sheet with holes. Dimensions — 123.5×46 cm. Cotton covers can be of different colors, therefore, when buying remotely, it is not a fact that they will bring the option, as in the picture. Here, either choose the place of shipment, or «get» the manager.

An important factor is the rich equipment. There is a portable armrest, a shelf for linen at the bottom, a foldable cord holder, an electrical outlet with an extension cord of 1.9 meters.

Main advantages:

  • Possibility of use with steam generators (due to perforation and a powerful stand, complemented by convenient hanger mounts);
  • Strong and stable steel supports with plastic protective tips, wheels for easy moving;
  • Smooth height adjustment within 1 m;
  • The ironing surface is designed for a load of up to 40 kg.

Gimi Pollicino

If there is little space in the house, and casual clothes and linen need constant care, a cute and very high-quality mini ironing board Gimi Pollicino will be just in place.

Leifheit AirBoard Compact Table

Even a seemingly simple thing like a miniature ironing surface for desktop placement becomes something technological, practical and convenient when a well-known manufacturer from Germany gets down to business.

According to the characteristics: the size of the canvas is 73×30 cm, the “board” in this case is not wood or even metal at all, but a unique plastic that can reflect thermal energy and steam, due to which ironing occurs with higher efficiency, in fact, from two sides. The cotton cover can be easily removed and washed and can be replaced if necessary.

The only thing for which, with a certain amount of cynicism, you can reproach the AirBoard Compact Table is its predisposition to work with small items of clothing such as T-shirts, blouses, men’s shirts. But that’s what compactness is all about. In addition, with a certain sleight of hand, more complex tasks can be solved.

Main advantages:

  • Quality workmanship and aesthetic design;
  • High strength at an ultra-low weight of 500 g;
  • Durability;
  • Compact feet with non-slip coating instead of the standard support system.
