Summary: I purchased this iron recently and I'm so pleased that I did. The secret to maintaining an iron like this for years, don't let water stay in it. Pour it out after each use and turn the iron off. Don't let it sit on for hours. Professional press, unbeatable price for quality and steam is phenom. Lahv it!!!
Summary: It is a little bit heavier than my old one but I like it. I like the way it handles, the idea of it turning off after 8 seconds if left down or falls down on side. You can control it from handle turning on and off. My old one turned off after 30 minutes and i always had to unplug and replug to start it again.
Summary: This is just like the irons back in the 60's.I like the feeling of the weight of this iron. I had thought this iron sprayed or had a burst of steam but it does not. But for the money it is a very good value.
Summary: I've only had it one week, but I like the weight - it's heavy and I like the push button steam function. I do wish that the water level indicator was more visible, but that's not really a big deal. The heat settings are nice, and they really do mean what they say - turn it down for cotton blends or you'll iron in more wrinkles than you iron out.
Summary: I really liked this iron and it worked well, then it just quit working. I plugged it in and it made the click noise, but wouldn't heat up. I had it for a little more than a year. I won't be buying another one.
Summary: My wife had an orginal for years. After it went out, she tried several other irons. I ordered her a new classis much like she had. She is very pleased with the new classic. It is durable and has simple controls and is well made and balanced..
Summary: This is a serious, get-the-job-done, ironing machine! This thing gets hot, uses plenty of steam and does the job better and in half the time of those lightweight, new-fangled irons. I will never go back to the 'newer models'. This is the KING of irons.
Summary: I needed a basic iron with no frills. I was hoping for a bit of steam for the wrinkles. What I got after 1 hour of pressing clothes was water bubbling out of the pour spout. I turned down the temperature...continued to bubble out water on the clothes. I tried it again a few days later, after 5 minutes the water started to bubble out again on the clothes. If you do not want steam then it does work. IF you want steam get another iron.
