Summary: I bought this iron because it had a stainless-steel soleplate and I heard that was best for ironing. I have ironed 3 different dress shirts and 3 different dresses and the clothes I ironed don't even look like I ironed them! The iron is getting hot but it's not getting the wrinkles out. I even tried my mom's trick of pressing it with a wet wash cloth and it was still wrinkled. I've never had an iron get hot and still not work.
Summary: Will get the job done if you have nothing else. It quicly gets some weird burn marks on the surface and i have been extra careful with it. Threw it out got a Shark. I never liked Black and Decker as a company and anything that i bought was pretty bad. Like most things, go with a company that only makes irons.
Summary: I do not do much ironing. This iron fits the bill. Heats up quickly which is very important to me since I always decide something needs to be ironed at the last minute. Kind of hard to fill with water as you have to hold iron at awkward angle but otherwise great!
Summary: We've had the Black and Decker F1060 for several months. Filling it with water is tricky, as the filler is on the front of the handle so you have to hold it at an angle to pour the water and if not careful or pouring too fast there's water all over. There is no 'On' or 'Off', it's either plugged in or not. It makes funny noises from time to time but nothing happens. Instinctively I do not expect it to last very long. So far, so good.
Summary: I got this on sale so the price was cheaper than mentioned here. The last iron I purchased had loose parts on the inside and leaked like a sieve, why it only cost $8. I never bothered to take it back. This iron performs well except for the steam burst button which is slow to burst steam, why it was on sale likely. Other than that it works great, heats well over the sole plate and steams consistently. No leaking. The best feature about this iron is its solid construction.
Summary: This iron should not advertise that it is a no leak because it has always leaked from day one. The only reason I did not take the iron back is because I threw the box and receipt away before I even tested it out good. Shame on me. I figured for $30 there would be no problems. I've never paid this much for an iron so I was feeling pretty confident. So I live with the leaking iron, wet clothes, and wet ironing board until it stops working or I purchase another iron.
Summary: It worked well for two weeks and then started shutting down while in use. Walmart was kind enough to give us a refund. I think some electrical problem was the cause. Otherwise it was good product worth the price.
