Shuts off when should be on

becky.m., Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: The product description says it should shut off after 30 seconds of not being in use. When I place it in the vertical position, it shuts off after FIVE seconds. It will not turn back on by simply picking it up to iron again. It has to be unplugged and plugged back in to turn on again. It takes a while to heat back up, this happens every time I set the iron down to turn the garment.

Save your money

  • Summary: I have had this iron less then a year. It was a waste of my money. The temp dial is way to small and difficult to change. The steam button is always stuck in the down mode making it difficult to produce steam. Because no steam is being produced it leaks from the bottom. It turns off when it should be on. The only thing I do like about this iron is the stainless steel soleplate. It glides easy over garments when iron is working correctly.

Awful

  • Summary: This iron should be a textbook example in bad design. The knob for turning it on and setting the temperature is VERY difficult to use. The only indication of what the numbers on the dial mean is on the other side of the iron (the hot side) down at the very bottom. When you tilt the iron to read this, the water pours out. It is very hard to tell when you've filled the water to the proper level the translucent water compartment isn't translucent enough.

not a good model

  • Summary: Yes, I am an ironer and no, I do not iron my underwear, hurrr. Knock it off you haters with your wrinkly-ass clothes. Anyway, I had this iron for less than a year before I gave up on it. For starters, the control dial on the front is small and very hard to turn. Design-wise, the red plastic trim is very attractive looking, but it is way too dark to see the water level easily, which is a real pain.

Not So Great

  • Summary: I had this iron for about a year or so. The electrical completely failed last week. Black & Decker won't help because of the age. I didn't know irons ever died.
