Summary: Received my Electrolux iron today. it certainly has alot of steam. A good heavy iron. The only thing is you cannot register this online as the Web site doesn't work when you try to register your iron. Hopefully this will be fixed.
Summary: After spending years struggling with a no-frills, hand-me-down, mineral-deposit-plagued Black & Decker 1200W iron (circa 1992) complete with a scratched up, tiny soleplate, I decided to treat myself to a new steam iron.
Summary: I am not an expert at ironing I dont use it often It just works and works great So, if you are looking for just basic features you will probably find something cheaper. But I really liked design, the handle, the surface and steam :-)
Summary: Why is it so difficult to find an iron that works as you would want and expect? I've tried a number of irons to replace a 10+ year old Rowenta - this one was as disappointing as the others It drips water, does not stay hot, and the nanny-state, auto-off "feature" is only annoying - not helpful at...
Summary: The plate is large and the tip is pointed enough for ironing details. I like the way it sits for filling. The water seems to last a long time for the steam. My only itsy bitsy complaint is that I cannot read the dial or turn it as easily as my old not as high quality iron.
Summary: I had a Braun Freestyle with textile protector iron which died after many years of use. I can't seem to find a newer model in 120v so I debated over this iron and the Rowenta. Both were highly rated by Good Housekeepig, but they also have their issues based on the reviews I have read on Amazon.
Summary: Started as a terrific iron. Held its temp, unlike so many other irons, and emitted a ton of steam. Perfect! Then, after a couple of months use, I noticed a burning smell as I was ironing. Thought I had imagined it, then noticed smoking coming from the iron, between the soleplate and body.
Summary: I have been using this iron for a couple of months with good results. Initially it felt heavy, but now I do not notice the weight. I use it for sewing as well as ironing clothes. It has not leaked once and the ironing surface has remained clean!
Summary: I got this iron because I have to iron a lot of dress shirts. And this is what I have to say to it. First it is extremely heavy, you can skip your workout session after ironing three or four shirts. It doesn’t glide as easy as they claim and, the steam is not as high as I expected.
