Summary: I bought this iron a while ago to replace another that died prematurely (seems to be the trend these days for everything coming out of china). I was drawn to this this one because of all the positive reviews, so I thought it would be a safe bet. Wrong. The steam on this iron does not work. Never has.
Summary: This iron worked fine for the first 6-7 months that I owned it. I used it about once every two weeks to iron 10-15 shirts. This past July when I went to iron a few shirts the iron started spewing a brown colored liquid onto all shirts. I have no idea where this came from but it didn't stop and ruined my shirt! I would thus rate it at 1 star. I guess you do get what you pay for...
Definitely buy if you enjoy frustration. In fact, buy two.

Summary: Wife bought this iron after careful internet research and reading reviews on Amazon. She has regretted ever since, for two reasons: She hates the device, and she's tired of hearing me bitch about the device. Buy this iron if you are the type of person who enjoys hearing the incessant chime when your car door is open. If you get a thrill out of waving your hand in front of a faucet and towel dispenser in a public restroom.
Summary: I purchased this iron because of all the good reviews it got. I couldn't wait to use it. What a disappointment! I like to use steam when I iron but with this piece of junk I can't use the steam without water coming out of the steam jets and messing up my clothes.
Summary: This iron worked fine for me for a couple uses then began LEAKING OILY BROWN WATER leaving spots. I happened to be ironing silk at the time and it did not come out. I had read this problem in one of the other reviews but there were so many positive ones I figured it was just a fluke and maybe it is, but I'm pretty sure there are better options out there, so don't risk it.
Summary: Very happy with this purchase and would recommend the iron to others. First off, the price is very impressive on this product and actaully had me worried initially about not paying much for an iron (i.e. can it be any good when most others are $20 more? Yes, yes it can.) I swear this iron does a better job than the last one we had, which cost twice as much. - Very good weight, which is important in an iron. - Warms up quickly.
Summary: I purchased this iron because of it's low price and customer rating. And I must say, WHAT A DELIGHT! This little fellow here is the perfect iron for me. I am a student and I iron a bunch of clothes on a weekly basis just after washing them. It's reasonable amount of use and it's regular. This iron never fails to satisfy me! The weight is just perfect! It's not too light, requiring you to press down on it, while it's also not too heavy, making it a pain to move it around!
Summary: For the price, this iron is a steal. Works great, steam function is nice and the retractable cord reel is awesome. To be fair, I do not iron that frequently, so the other comments regarding the small water chamber and weak steam function did not bother me. For a general, all-purpose iron, this is great. If you're looking for something heavy-duty that can handle a lot of ironing and steaming at once, this is probably not for you.
Summary: This is my second iron in 2 months. After a couple of good days with this iron it started to leak a brown sticky substance which stained a pair of good pants. I couldn't understand why this substance was coming out so I figured I'll try another one, maybe this one just malfuctioned. Well after Amazon sent me a new at no cost I decided to go ahead and try it again. To my suprise the second one started to leak the same brown subtance that stain another pair of pants.
