Summary: I have had this iron for at least 6 years and have never had any trouble with it. Works well on tap water, easy to refill, produces heavy steam, and doesn't take long to reheat on the base. I use it 5 days a week. Love that there's no cord to mess up what I'm ironing.
Pros: Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, reasonably priced, great quality, light weight
Summary: I bought this product in a store. It was really great at first- cordless ironing would make anyone like me with a huge collection of shirts very happy. Unfortunately, the "battery" life after detaching from the charging base is very limited, like two shirts and you are done limited. So if you are like me and have 5-7 shirts you want to iron, you need to wait and re-charge a lot. I decided to buy a steamer now to avoid anymore wasting money.
Summary: What a waste of my money. What non-ironing idiot engineer decided it would be wise to put the on/off and temperature controls right where your hand grips the iron? They are forever changing! Squeeze just a tiny bit and your settings go nuts. In spite of this, I tried working with this iron for many months because I liked the cordless feature. Unfortunately, the iron also shuts off too frequently for my needs.
Summary: Maybe it's because I'm a fast ironer, but this iron drives me crazy. With a corded iron, I would often readjust the clothing with one hand, holding the iron in the other. It's faster and more efficient that way. You cannot do that with this iron or it will lose heat. It takes me much longer to iron this way, and if I happen to keep it off the base too long, then I have to wait an extended period for it to heat up again.
Summary: I bought this because I liked the idea of a cordless iron. First let me share that this iron is NOT a rechargeable unit. ONLY plug in the base when in use. This iron heats up quickly, has a fantastic steam option, and presses wrinkles out quickly. The only drawback may be that you don't set the iron on the board or counter,as it will lose heat. You need to set it in the base. I love cordless.
Summary: The iron is nice and worked well while it worked. Mine only lasted 1 year and 3 months. Up until it died it worked very well. But I would never buy another cordless because the base and case are large and make it cumbersome to use. If you have a work room where you can leave the iron out it's ok but I live in an apartment and need to store the iron after each use. I was very disappointed that the iron failed after a little more than a year (just past the warranty).
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, failed a little after a year.
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...
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.
