Summary: I originally purchased the smaller version of this and it was not wide enough for most applications. I invested in this larger 34" press and love love love it. From levi's to linens, it saves me time and is easy to use. I highly recommend!
Summary: This has a huge pressing area, for a home steam presser. I'm about to buy my second one. I unfortunately broke my first one by not locking it before moving, so ... my fault. Anyway, none of them open far, and this is typical. Deal with it. My first one was incredibly good at fusing two pieces of fabric or even one piece of leather and another piece of fabric with fusible web. Irons are terrible at doing this.
Summary: I must say, I iron everything. This product does not satisfy my expectations. It did not cut down any time, as stated by previous reviewers. Yes, I must say I do have a problem, eveything must be perfect, no wrinkles, and this steam press is just not the same as the old fashioned way of ironing. This product is being returned and I hope it works better for someone else!
Summary: This steam presser works exactly as stated - however after many burns I realized that if the lid opened all the way (to a 90 degree angle), I could arrange my clothing on the board without so many burns! I also purchased the stand for this presser, and it works just fine, but for me (I'm 5'7") it is way too low. I took it off the stand and placed it on my folding table - now I don't burn myself because I can see where I'm placing my hands.
Summary: I have been using my new press for a little over a month now. I have gotten a few burnt knuckle's trying to get used to it, but all in all it is a great time saver it has cut my ironing time in half if not more. This press works good so far the only compaint is that it seems like about 1 to 2 inches from each end of the press it does not press as well as in the center of the press, I don't know if this is because it is not as hot at each end or if it just doesn't put as...
Summary: At a cost of $329 my expectations were that it would last longer than 2 weeks. The roller on the arm mechanism broke off the second time i used it. It was returned and i have purchased another giving the machine the benifit of doubt because it pressed my clothes so well. I have not received the second one yet but hope that it last much much longer.
