Top-rated steam iron for less than CHF50

Steam irons must be everyone's favourite Christmas or birthday item to judge by the number of models on sale and the prices charged. But the German magazine Test gave its top ranking in December 2016 to a Bosch that cost only CHF47.50. The Sensixx'x DA 30 (you tell me how to pronounce it) beat six other models for its prize. The other two finalists were also reasonably priced: the Tefal Ultragliss for CHF71.90 and the Braun Texstyle for CHF49.95. At those prices, no need to wait for a special occasion to give one to your partner.
