Roger,
There are three presets of 200/300/400 deg C. You can adjust temp in steps of 10C using the up and down buttons.
HTH

Two little rolls of 60/40 tin/lead(!) are included. These are non fluxed.
The sponge and sponge tray are comedy thin. Well done if you get the helping hands at the same time.
By no means Hakko quality, for 18 it still looks like it'll serve a purpose. I will certainly have a go at a brass kit with it.

My one had flux core solder in the box. Only small rolls though. Enough to get somebody started. John

Hakko quality......Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz............ not Hakko prices either is it. For a iron used for the hobby It is fine for the purpose needed. Not as if you want to use it on a production line is it.

Next up from Lidl is a small bench grinder - 50mm diameter stones and brushes.

Edit
Got mine this morning in Limassol for Eur29.99.
About half size of a 6" bench grinder.
It includes a wooden box of accessories and a flex shaft that fits on one end of the device.
On-Off switch and Variable speed as well.
Looks to be standard Parkside brand quality.

They also had the highlighter size battery powered soldering irons.
