Cheap and pretty, and does a perfect job
I just moved to CA from across the ocean, so I had to order a lot of basic household stuff, all at once, so I was going for something very cheap and basic - and this steam iron went far beyond my expectations. I thought it would be quite light weight and I think lighter irons don't do such a good job, but this one is heavier than you would expect.
Whoa! A Steam Iron that really Steams!
Still a great purchase. After reading some of the subsequent reviews about all the leaking and such, I'd have to say perhaps they got a bad version. Other than the occasion spitting, at very predictable circumstances as noted above, I've had nary an issue with this iron. I sincerely hope it continues to last.
Better than many higher priced irons
Over the years, I have spent top dollar for irons of various brand names thinking that they would be of higher quality and perform better. I have only had this iron for a short while, but so far, this fella stands up to the top name brands that cost $100 and above.
Note: The different colors have different options - thanks to several Amazon reviewers for pointing this out - I almost ordered based on my favorite color, and would not have received the iron with the retractable cord.
The T-fal is far superior than my old iron but it heats up quickly. The steam coming out is not as powerful as I would have liked. The price seems low for the features it has. I am unsure of the durability as I have only owned it for 2 months. I like that it has a wider base that it makes it easier to iron and it very stable.
I bought this iron to get my uniforms looking sharp. I didn't want to spend a ton on an iron because I plan on leaving it here for others to use when I do go back home. For the price you will not be disapointed. It fills up easy, hasn't leaked water on my clothes, heats up quick, and the cord is long enough so that I'm not ironing on the wall. There are enough fabric settings for most persons needs, it glides over the clothes smoothly. I can't think of any problems with it.
Does not leak, works fine
I bought this iron on sale at a craft store and then came here to read the reviews. I was especially concerned about the review that said the iron leaks water. This iron, or any iron, will likely leak water if you fill the iron past the fill mark for water on the iron. That would be easy to do with this iron because the plastic water pitcher that comes with the iron to use to fill it has water level markings that are beyond what the iron can accept.
