We bought this in September 2018 and used regularly. Today (March 2020) after turning on after 2 minutes what I thought was steam was actually smoke. I immediately took it outside by which time the plate had disintegrated, see photos. I can not see a reason why this would have happened as we'd not dropped the iron and there was no damage to it. Amazon kindly gave me a partial refund when I reported my concerns. Hence just one staranantpat
It’s BIG, it’s heavy, the steam button sticks in the gap yet no steam comes out and if it’s not set on high it won’t iron even delicate items as the plate doesn’t get hot enough. My last iron was just a cheap £15 small one and it was 150% better than this.Lou Lou
arrived in great time. Ordered it September 1st.Today I’ve plugged it in and it is stone cold. Not working.I expect more from this brand.randomdee
I am finding this iron much heavier to use therefore would not enjoy using it for a large amount of ironing.Dianne Trueman
It irons really well and fast. The tiny quibble I have relates to its spray and "jet" water buttons on top. The spray one is on the right and a little difficult for me to manouevre to with my thumb as I am holding the iron. But those with bigger hands might not have the same problem.CS
Bought as recommended as a light ironTeresa Hunter
This iron is very light and comfortable to use. It has a reasonably generous water tank and generates steam very well. Good iron good buy.C H O'Shaughnessy
Bought this iron as it was a Which? recommended buy. Very pleased with it, although disappointed that it doesn’t actually do the ironing for me! It is lightweight and has a very smooth soleplate which glides overbthe clothes.Heather
Cord way too short- it won’t reach to the end of my ironing board and I’ve had to turn my board around and iron as tight to the wall as possible. Iron itself is lightweight and easy to use. Looks very smart and has performed well on wrinkles. Would not buy again personally because of the short cord though.Jester
After a month and a half the steam button stopped working it dropped in and not coming up again. Tried to contact the seller but as of yet no luck. Defected product and no exchange or refund.Yelena
Great product. Even enjoy using it!!!Dodie Hunt
Which Best Buy and I agreeMr Peter Green
Insulation failure between element and earthed sole-plate: takes out house rcd's. This is the kind of product which is contributing to global warming by driving unecessary comsumption of raw materials thro such a short life. Surely a simple iron should last 5 years or more?June Sykes
I have had countless irons over the last 50 years but the sole plate of this one is the best of them all. I live in a hard water area which has caused problems with every other iron. This one performs perfectly.Gigi G
Great iron would certainly recommendAmazon Customer
It was great while it lasted. Just stopped producing steam when ironing. Cleaned it all out etc still nothing. I suppose there must be a warranty but I dont think I'll buy this product again.F.C.
Which Magazine review rating it as a Best Buy was what made me to choose the iron and I have not been disappointed.One of the cons mentioned was the length of the plug but I actually find it very adequate and long enough. In fact the length is ideal so it’s even fair to say it has less cons.The steam is so powerful and there is need for caution not to burn your fingers when adjusting garments at the same time as ironing especially from the tip of the iron.Jnanas
2nd time buying this. It is a great iron. Steam is effective and glides nicely over the clothesAngie Davina
had this iron barely a month and steam button stuck and brown liquid leaked aver white shirt. Do not buy!Eileen Kelly
Brilliant green almost toy-like but extremely light to use for lightly built, small-handed people. Water reserve is small and steam rate could be faster, but overall a good and effective iron to use.T. S. Dawson

Let's be honest - most of us aren't fans of ironing. The Breville team are no different, so VIN393 Aero Ceramic 2400 W Iron has been designed with you in mind. High performance and easy-to-use features make ironing quicker and easier to give you more time to do the things you actually enjoy. The 130 g steam shot gets deep into fabrics - powering through tough creases with ease. With a ceramic finish, you will enjoy the benefits of the Aero Ceramic’s superior glidability, ensuring smooth performance and fast results by reducing the friction and static between the garment and the sole plate. Ceramic offers more durability with a better resistance to scratches and because they generate less static, ceramic soleplates are ideal for ironing synthetics and delicate garments. The easy-fill inlet makes filling quicker and spill-free, making your ironing experience that bit easier.
The Aero Ceramic features the Breville Safe-Store heat indicator, for safer handling and storage of your iron. As the iron heats, the indicator changes colour, to tell you the iron is hot. When you have finished your ironing and the iron cools, the indicator colour changes back. No more placing your hand close to the soleplate to check if it’s still warm. Read the indicator and be confident that your iron is cool enough to store, even in a cupboard full of other things.
