This is not the best iron, but it was useful in a pinch.

Excerpt: We just bought this iron. I was sent out of town on a business trip last minute and had little time to get here. I was called and asked to make a four hour drive in six hours which only gave me minimal time to pack, clean up, lock up, and be prepared for a weeks worth of audit reporting.
Excerpt: I have been using this iron for quite some time now & am really impressed with it. The steam feature works well & gets the wrinkles out effectively. I bought the iron because I like Black and Decker products. This is another of their products that lives up to my expectations.
Summary: I really have to wonder how a product like this ever got out the door. Nothing seems to work correctly on it. For one thing, the iron just turns on and off at will...very strange. The other is that the water tank leaks! Are you kidding me!?! Sadly, complete garbage. Look elsewhere and good luck!
Excerpt: This is a great basic iron for any normal household. Holds up well use after use, I have used it for crafting, and every day ironing. Gets the job done and does it well. I do not have to worry about it damaging my clothing.PerformanceNo complaints, works well on all types of fabric, gentle enough...
Excerpt: I don't iron too much but when I do I iron my husbands uniforms and does a good job. Easy to use and gets rid of crinkles and creases. No complaints about it and I've had it for over a year. Recommend it to anyone.
Excerpt: I have had no problems with this iron. The only thing to watch for is having the heat up enough otherwise instead of being steam, the water will drip out everywhere. No outstanding features, but a great iron for everyday use.
Excerpt: I have to admit that I don't expect much out of my iron. I don't iron my clothes on a regular basis, so I figured that I should buy one that was very inexensive. This is just that. Inexpensive without being too cheaply made, but gets the job done. I enjoy the steam option.
Excerpt: We have had so many irons over the 30 plus years of marriage. This is the one appliance that we have had to replace the most. Sometimes we bought what we thought were very good irons given the cost and other times we went cheap. This was one the irons where we went cheap.
Summary: Consumers Reports' number one pick was the similar F-1060/IR1070 with shiny stainless soleplate. Turns off in 30 seconds if left face down or on its side, 10 minutes in the vertical position. Can also be used to steam hanging clothes.
