Summary: Had this iron for about a year now and it still works unlike my last iron which had calcium deposits on the bottom and turned gray and stzrted making spots appear on white blouse. Now no more problems, its easy to clean, iron, and put away in linen closet.
Summary: I like this iron for the weight and ease of use. What I HATE about this iron is the automatic shut off. I like the safety feature, but I don't think it should shut off while in use and in motion. I spend more time unplugging and plugging the unit back in to get it working again.
Summary: I have been sewing my whole life and have never had an iron that works as great as this one. Of course it is not a professional steam iron (the ones alteration shops have) but for home use you will love it. You can not believe the amount of steam it produces.
Summary: Our iron was received as a gift this past Christmas and then stopped working only two months later - it wouldn't power up. It stopped working in the middle of a shirt I was ironing. They are made in China and look good but they just don't work.
Summary: This was a good iron for about 2 years. That's why the 2 stars. Then, today as I was ironing, I noticed the fabric in the pants was "wadding" up under the iron...and I realized it had burned the cotton khakis so bad that the fabric had gotten stiff.
Summary: I have a Shark vacuum that was quite good, so on the basis of the brand name I bought this item. Sorry, but it's a piece of junk. The heating controls are flimsy and will soon break off. The iron spits water instead of steam, and the shot of steam takes too long to emerge once you press the button.
Summary: I bought this iron (not on Amazon) to replace a cheapo, $15 Dollar General iron that I had been using previously. When I first started using the Shark, I thought it was the best iron ever. After a short time, I noticed scorched, gunky buildup on the ironing surface.
Summary: I bought this iron at Walmart when I was traveling and the iron in the hotel was filthy and sputtering. I was immediately impressed. The weight of the iron is just right; heavy... and the steam came out just right.
Summary: Just finished ironing white Capri jeans, along with a cotton shirt, and they came out like I just picked them up from the cleaners. I too hope that my new Shark iron continues to do the job. It's too expensive of an iron to last only a short time...fingers crossed, so far so good.
