Summary: Just opened the package and tried. Like the design of the Push-Button cord reel, I think it's a very cool and convenient design. Very smooth when use! And I do mention that this iron surge has the cool feature which prevents water spotting, because my old iron surge drip water every time I use it..
Summary: I've had this iron only three months and will be replacing it. Even if you're buying on a budget, this one is wrong, wrong, wrong. The plate on the bottom looks the part of a nonstick iron, but it scorched in the first use and intermittently since.
Waste of money! Terrible quality soleplate, leaks water... awful.

Summary: By far the worst iron I've ever had. 7 months of infrequent use, and the soleplate started to "peel" thus creating a discoloration on my clothes. Finally the last time I used it, the green light came on right away after plugging it in - ?? It never heated up. A total waste of money.
Summary: We've had this iron perhaps a year with VERY limited use and it has stopped working. The green light comes on, but it doesn't heat up. I've scoured the internet looking for a fix and have come across volumes of other consumers who have had this same issue.
Summary: Bought this iron at Kohls or Target about 6 months ago. It has never ever worked correctly. It turns off and on randomly, gets hotter than the setting randomly, sticks to everything and its totally annoying. Now it has quit working completely. Its demon possessed.
Summary: This has by far been the worst purchase I could have made. Apart from other issues that users have complained about, my iron regularly accumulates black sticky stuff. I've tried scraping it off, but there it is back again every time.
