Summary: I was looking for an iron that was lightweight, yet would have the features I was looking for and provided good steam. So far so good. It is close to the lightest iron I have found (I have tendonditis in both elbows). I like that the water reservoir has a lid over it. My other iron used to spit water out of the reservoir. Hope this hold up well over time.
Summary: Lightweight and easy to use. I am carefully following the instructions to not leave the dial in the "spray" category when not in use, understanding this may lead to water staying or collecting in the soleplate. This explains some of the water spotting I had with other irons. This iron does a great job and I would highly recommend it.
Summary: She has a Rowenta retailing for over 100 dollars and a Delonghi retailing for close to 200 dollars. So why would she want another iron? The aforementioned irons are somewhat heavy and are high wattage, so to cut back on the electric bill I researched to find a light, low wattage iron and came up with this Panasonic. With two Panasonic cameras, I have been happy with the Panasonic brand. So how does the mad quilter like her new, inexpensive iron?
Summary: Decided to get an iron in order to stop taking my khakis to the dry cleaners and satisfied on how the iron works so far. Full disclosure though, after a day of ironing I remembered why I started taking my pants to the dry cleaners. For four pants, had put in only half the amount of water in the reservoir, however, didn't notice right away when that water was gone. Not a complaint.
Summary: Perhaps I should wait a few more months before I boast but this is a great iron! I am one of those guys who is obsessed with ironing my own clothing. I do not have any other "neat" hang-ups but my Mother thought that her four sons should all know how to sew a button and iron a shirt. It stuck. I wanted an iron that provided a LOT of steam and did not leak water. I also have a Shark which I love but was priced much higher and drips water constantly.
Terrible experience..major flaw.. I wouldn't pay $5 for this iron.

Summary: Pros: Looks good, heats up quickly, cheap price. Cons: I had to learn the hard way, that If you adjust the heat setting while it's in use....it spits out Scalding Hot Water all over the place and ruins your clothes!! I ironed shirt #1 and hung it up. I was about to iron shirt #2 and had a brand new $65 silk tie lying next to the shirt. I turned the setting down since shirt #2 wasn't 100% cotton.
