Great steam iron
This DeLonghi can produce 4.5 bars/65.2psi. It's an iron with the most amount of bars you will be able to find at this price. It takes around 15 minutes to heat up. Unfortunately, you cannot see a water level gauge; however, I fill this up just before doing the ironing each time. I was amazed at what this steam iron can do. I can do napkins in about 30 seconds. A shirt takes a couple of minutes. I was able to bring this iron to the dining room and iron a table cloth with no problem.
Best iron I've every had!
This has more weight, heat, and steaminess than most irons, and I find it faster and more effective than any iron I've had. I almost didn't buy it because of the negative comments on the cord placement, but I don't find that to be a problem. My cord is plugged in directly in front of me and the flexible cord just stays to the right side of the iron when it's put on its heel. It is heavy, so I don't leave the iron unattended on the board.
A Different Beast!
Apparently, I am one of the few remaining individuals who feel the need for freshly ironed clothing. I've always used steam irons, Rowenta most recently, with consistently disappointing results. Over the years, I've increased my use of spray starch to make up for the power I've believed should have originated in the iron. But no more!
