The Original Laurastar Lift

This classic model gives you all the tricks and essential functions you want – ironing, steaming, and purifying – at the best value for money available from the brand. Using the power of its lab tested DMS engineering you will get pro-quality results. In fact, its 15x faster than your average ironing/steaming product, while providing a hygienic effect deep in the fibers of your textiles, this steam kills 99.9% of all bacteria, fungi, and dust mites.

Its on-the-go design makes it great if you are low on space, or if you work in the styling, sewing, or fashion industries and need a high-quality steamer/iron in your kit. All models come with a protective soleplate that allow you to easily and efficiently press delicate or screen-printed garments. In certain commercial circumstances you may need to up or lower the temperature and only this model and the plus allow you to do that, so that’s another plus; however, for the most part you can keep the heat dial centered.

This compact 3-in-1 powerhouse appliance comes in two original beauty colors: Pure White and Red. It has an easy-grab handle, which doubles as a place to wrap the hose around. The entire weight of the component is just over 12 pounds and when holding just the handheld iron it is just 2.2 pounds.

Notable Features

  • Iron on a traditional lath or steam vertically on a clothes hanger.
  • Purifies your garments, fabric furniture, blankets, and more with Dry Microfine Steam.
  • Portable, ergonomic design that’s easy to move around, take on the go, and store.
  • Includes an anti-scale cartridge, heat-resistant iron mat, and a soleplate for delicate fabric.

Drawbacks

  • Does not let you manually pulse steam.
  • Does not include Laurastar’s 3D soleplate design that straightens fabric as you glide.

The original is a great product. It has the same design and base features that the other upgraded models retain and for an excellent price. If you are looking for a pro-quality at-home results and you are just getting started building your set of appliances at home, this is a great option. It also makes the perfect edition for new on-the-go stylists, or even a luxury wedding gift for a loved one.


The Laurastar Lift Plus

The Plus offers the same wonderful compact design and all features included in the base model “plus” a new feature called Steam Pulse and a newly design 3D soleplate. This model even comes in a mesmerizing new color, “sky blue.”

One of the key features on this model is the ability to pulse the steam flow. The pulsing works by diffusing the steam into multiple intermittent bursts, so you have more control over your results and deliver the optimum amount of steam by color or style of fabric under your demand with pulse steam.

The second key point on the Plus is its active 3D soleplate. The surface of the soleplate is designed to hold your fabric in place as it dispenses steam over the entire surface for an effortless experience that thoroughly refreshes your fabric’s fibers.

The Plus even has a flexible cord holder accessory that comes stock in the box. The cord holder is a great convenience addition that keeps the cord out of your way while steaming.

Notable Features

  • Iron on a traditional surface or steam vertically on a hanger.
  • Purifies your garments, fabric furniture, blankets, and more with Dry Microfine Steam.
  • Portable, ergonomic design that’s easy to move around, take on the go, and store.
  • Use Steam Pulse to deliver your own desired amount of steam.
  • Active 3D soleplate straightens fabric as you glide over it.
  • Includes an anti-scale cartridge, heat-resistant iron mat, cord holder, and a soleplate for lighter fabrics.

If you are a more experienced ironer (an ironing champion if you will), plan to use one of the Lift models professionally, or are upgrading your on-the-go professional steamer, the Plus likely is your best pick.

It gives you the most control of all three models with the commercial-circumstance temperature dial for ultra-delicate or thick garments, plus the steam pulse technology. The active 3D soleplate enhances your horizontal experience too. You may also be drawn to this model for its exclusive sky-blue color.


The Laurastar Lift Xtra

This Laurastar Xtra comes in a lovely soft touch gray and gives you everything from the Lift Plus with one key added feature that makes it great for beginners. This feature is Laurastar’s “ideal temperature settings,” which removes the previous dial.

The dial would only be needed in certain commercial circumstances, so it is not a necessary upgrade in our opinion. Beyond that main feature, the 3D soleplate is now fully aluminum, so that looks a bit nicer. Another convenience they added is the retractable power cord. Like the Plus, you get the Laurastar steam cord holder in the box, which is another nice extra to have.

Notable Features

  • Iron on a traditional surface or steam vertically on a clothes hanger.
  • Purifies your garments, fabric furniture, blankets, and more with Laurastar dry microfine steam.
  • Portable, ergonomic design that’s easy to move around, take on the go, and store.
  • Use Steam Pulse to deliver your own desired amount of steam.
  • Active, fully aluminum 3D soleplate straightens fabric as you glide over it.
  • Singular temperature takes out any guesswork for beginners.

Includes an anti-scale cartridge, heat-resistant iron mat, steam iron cord holder, and a protective soleplate for thin fabrics.

Drawbacks

  • $100 more for a less-than impressive addition which takes away the commercial temperature control.

If you are looking for ultimate luxury and ease of use and have extra money to spend, you will be happy with the Lift Xtra. It has a lot of nice conveniences for beginners and advanced users alike. The fully aluminum 3D soleplate makes it a great choice for commercial use as well.


Laurastar “All-In-One” Professional Line

Laurastar’s “all-in-one” garment stations are designed to be a more permanent edition to your home or sewing/design studio. These ironing systems incorporate Laurastar’s award-winning active technology which can activate the board’s fan to act as a blower and vacuum depending on the situation for perfect fabric results every time.

These high temperature ironing stations create expert results, and they purify and refresh your fabrics, too. These convenient all-in-one stations fold up to save space when not in use and include stylish protective lath covers. They even adjust by height so you can iron comfortably standing or in your favorite chair.

We have selected two popular options and their accessories from this line to review, the Laurastar Go Plus and the Laurastar Smart I. The Go Plus is targeted for beginners wanting to purchase their first ironing station, while the Smart I is a more advanced option with higher capacities better suited for a professional ironing studio or large home and are prolific steam generators.
