Iron lasted less than three months.

William Mackmin, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: This iron worked for just over two months. When the company (Panasonic) was called, they told us to send it to the repair center in Texas, at a cost of $15.96. They waited three weeks and sent a iron with a cord. We called three times and we're told someone would call us back each time. On the fourth call we were told the reason we were sent a iron with a cord was " because the cordless iron was out of stock".

I wanted to like this iron, but...

John Doe, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: ...I can't. I spend more time ironing using this iron than any other I have used before. The iron cools down so fast that I'm going over the same part of the shirt over and over and over again trying to get the wrinkles out, but they won't. I have to wonder if I bought a refurbished model because I only paid $59.99 for the same exact model, but I see it being sold for $120 from the same seller.

Wastes too much of my time, take a long time to reheat. Also drips.

Erica M., Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I waste a lot of time waiting for the iron to reheat on the base plate. I liked the idea of the cord not getting in the way but it is not worth all the time standing around waiting for the iron to reheat. I've had it 11 months and it just started dripping also.

Disappointing Purchase - Cools Off Way Too Fast!

Heather Rowe "Heather", Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I really dislike this iron and I'm not sure why I thought it was a good idea. I guess I didn't read the description thoroughly. I thought it would be rechargeable and didn't realize it cools down almost immediately after removing it from the base. I sell sewn items online and this iron has really slowed down my work. I am constantly ironing as I sew and I have to put this iron back on the base every few seconds to keep it hot enough to do any good.

Yeah, no cord

Elisabeth Reed, Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: As a sewer and Quilter I have owned many irons and have always found that the cord gets in my way or restricts where I take it. I have also tripped over the cord a number of times, resulting in the iron falling on the floor. I really like this iron, it gets hot enough for anything I need to do and I don't have to worry about ironing the cord. My only criticism is that it shuts itself off too quickly for me.

I should have read closer

David B. Kirk "Dr. Dave", Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: This isn't a bad product, but I probably should have read it closer to realize that is only heats up when it is in the base. I thought the base was just a 'charging station', but it's actually where the iron gets its heat from. That makes it a little less attractive for what I wanted. However, I still gave it 3 stars because it does warm up pretty quickly.

Had high hopes, but this iron is terrible!

C. Chauntel, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: I really don't understand all of the positive reviews... Unless you are ironing Barbie clothes, this thing simply will not get the job done! What a nuisance! The auto shutoff feature sounds great, until you realize the iron shuts off every time you pick it up and instantly starts cooling down. This thing will not stay hot unless you leave it on the base, which obviously precludes you from doing any actual ironing with it! You get about a minute...

Thumbs down

B. PICHANY, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: I do a lot of ironing because my husband has to wear cotton to work and this iron causes me to spend MORE TIME doing what I hate to do. Although cordless is a nice feature, it just does not get hot enough to be a good steam iron, and isn't that what it's all about?! It cools down very quickly on being removed from the base and I find myself rushing to return it to the base to avoid a re-heat. I must say it's lovely, but lousy for it's intended purpose.

Great and then not great!

Buff Crone, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I haven't seen any other reviews commenting on this problem so it may be that I have a defective iron and need to return it. The first day, I was in love. It got hot quickly, the steam was steady and amazing and I adored the "shot of steam" feature, which worked well. *Yes, you do have to replace it in the cradle EVERY TIME you shift your fabric, but that wasn't a problem for me.
