Summary: This iron feels and looks old school (in a good way) and solid. The heft of it is perfect, no too light to press out wrinkles, not too heavy to tire out your arm when ironing a few pieces. It heats quickly and steams well. The only thing it seems to be missing is a spritz function to enable one to spray a mist of water onto especially tough wrinkles while ironing.

Summary: I had high hopes for this iron because I liked the look of it and I also figured that it would work well like the older irons. However it did not. As other reviewers had stated, but clothing got bunched up underneath the iron and it did not seem to iron any wrinkles out. AS a matter of fact, the clothes did look any better after I had ironed it. It's going back and I will resume using the 'newfangled' irons!
Summary: I purchased this iron because I remembered having one when I was younger! The only setback to that is "back in the day" we used starch! The newer irons come with the water squirt feature that helps you get the wrinkles out of your clothes...and this one doesn't :( Also, the newer irons come with a see through feature so you can know how much water is in the iron..
Summary: I am a quilter and thought this would be an inexpensive replacement. It is the worst iron I have ever used!!! The steam holes are so large and rough that it catches on the fabric and makes terrible wrinkles. I have never seen an iron that the sole plate was so poorly made. It is going back to the store today. I can't say enough about how poorly this is made.
