Great Steam Iron
It's so lightweight that it's enjoyable to use and doesn't wear you out to iron a few shirts. The best thing about it is the steam. It steams so much and so well that I sail right through ironing and my laundry had never looked better.
If you're looking for an affordable, lightweight steam iron that does a great job then I think you would be pleased with this one too.
Safety Hazard - Leaks Out of the Box - Unacceptable
Nice looking, great features, stainless steel base, auto power shutoff ... great stuff except it leaks. Add water, plug it in, heat it up and press the steam button. You get one large drop of water inside the housing for each surge of steam from the iron when you press the steam button. (although the steam out of the iron is great). Set the iron up vertically after a horizontal steam pass on your shirt and it runs out of housing seams and out of the power cord penetration.
Piece of Crap!
This iron is a piece of crap and I can't believe it ever passed the Quality Control department. I've had it for 1 1/2 years and it has never worked right. It starts cooling off in the middle of ironing and then you have to go through the steps of turning it off, unplugging it, plugging it back in, and turning it on again and hoping it will heat up again... it's hit or miss. And then there's the light!!... that annoying constant red blinking light!!
Worst iron I have ever owned!!!
My title says it all. I have never been so tempted to hurl an appliance across the room as I am when using this iron! It has a shut-off feature which kicks in after 8 minutes of non-use. Sounds like a great idea, but it never knows when to turn itself back on! It's supposed to have an internal motion sensor so that when you pick it back up, it starts reheating again. That RARELY happens though.
Do not buy this iron!!!
This iron is an absolute waste of money! Do not purchase this iron! It is very, very lightweight and the water continues to squart out of it every time you try to iron with it, and continues to wet your clothing. I used this iron only once and had to go back to my old one! I will have to return this iron for a refund.
Ok, for the price
I read the reviews of several more expensive irons, but they all seemed to have one or more fatal flaws and/or be outrageously expensive. This isn't my main iron, just the one in my laundry room, so I wasn't looking to spend tons of money. There are three features that I really don't like, but can live with given the low, low price.
