What Comes in the Box
- 1 X Sunbeam Steam Master GCSBSP-201-FFP Iron
Product Features & Technical Details
The Sunbeam measures 12 inches by 4.9 inches by 5.5 inches. It weighs just three pounds, which makes it lighter than its rivals.
Here are the top features of the product:
High Quality Soleplate. It has a stainless steel soleplate with steam holes of macro size. The design of the components enables more precise pressing.
Shot of Steam. If you want to get rid of the tough wrinkles and creases on fabric, the Sunbeam has this feature that works in just a single button press. It will generate powerful burst of steam that will make ironing quicker and easier.
Vertical Functionality. If you need to iron clothes or any fabric that is hanging up, this iron will still work, as its shot of steam also works vertically. This gives you the option of not setting up the ironing board. Nice!
Variable Steam. The Steam Master is designed with a lever that lets you control the output of steam depending on the fabric type you are working on. It has a Dry/ Steam selector, enabling you to iron without the aid of the steamer.
Automatic Shut-Off. It has a three-way Motion Smart technology that lets the equipment shut off by itself when left in three positions. For instance, if it is left vertically, it will shut down after 15 minutes. Alternatively, it will turn off after half a minute when left horizontally or tipped over.
Easy Cord Management. The cord has a length of eight feet, and being retractable allows more convenient storage of the cable.
This is much better than using a normal iron and it works on a variety of fabrics with ease. The water tank lasts fairly long so it's not too much of a hassle refilling it.
Downsides include some slight design flaws. For example, it's quite hard to remove the water fill hole cover. And some people have complained about it leaving stains, though we didn't experience that in our testing.
Pros of Product

- Has large water tank
- Heats up quickly

Cons of Product

Who Should Buy This Product
Sunbeam's Steam Master GCSBSP-201-FFP Iron is a good choice if you want to work on different types of clothing and fabric. Furthermore, it is a top pick for someone who has a limited budget.
Conclusion and Recommendation
This is a real value-for-money steam iron. There are better, more powerful models with more features, but they come with a hefty price tag to match. We give this two thumbs up, though if you can afford to pay more, there are some really interesting other products out there.
