Two Stars

  • Summary: Not only is this iron heavy, but the non-stick finish causes the iron to drag on the fabric.

just quits

Victoria N, Amazon

  • Summary: I (first) purchased this iron in December 2012 for about $25 and it seemed pretty good. It was easy to use and seemed to do a pretty good job. It's supposed to beep when the iron has reached temperature and is ready for use.

Light weight Iron

Simply Smart, Amazon

  • Summary: Light weight and I love the fact that the cord rolls-up inside of it for storage. Only used it once so far so good.

Reel is the only downside, but after all...

LaLa, Amazon

  • Summary: I really do like this iron, it does a great job. I don't think the reel for the cord is necessary. Mostly it just bothers me when it won't go all the way back in, but it's the iron we're worried about right?

Don't buy this iron!

pinkyfinger, Amazon
21 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this iron (albeit from Macy's and not Amazon) and I have the same complaint most of the other reviewers have - everything sticks to the bottom of this iron. And once it's there, it's there.

PIECE OF JUNK!

mdgraphix, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: This Iron SUCKS! The heating element broke so I bought a new one...that one broke too. This iron looks nice but don't waste your money...if you do you will be buying a new one in no time. F-

stops working after a few months of use

Trixiecat, Amazon
20 March 2012
  • Summary: This is the second iron of this model I've had in less than 12 months. The first one stopped heating up after only 6 months of use. I thought it might just be a fluke, so I replaced it with an identical model.

Different!

M. Baker, Amazon
30 April 2010
  • Summary: Well this iron works well, so far. It's a bit awkward getting used to the extra length due to the cord storage. Adding water is a trick since the port has a cover that you have to maneuver around. Easy for you to burn your finger tips while filling. Would I buy it again? Probably not. 2013...
