Summary: This was a replacement iron for a different model, and after several weeks of use is serving nicely as a basic iron. Not too heavy, easy to use controls, reasonable price. Cons are, 1) it's easy to move the temperature dial when picking the iron up.
Summary: Not a great iron, but a very good iron. It is a little small as I was used to Rowenta. My biggest issue is that the water reservoir is almost opaque. That is idiotic and Panasonic's R and D dept need to be fired.
Summary: I researched for an iron for several weeks. I purchased this one. I love the retractable cord. It keeps it out of the way when I'm not using it. Great steam ironing. The feature buttons are easy to use. The sole plate is designed well.
Summary: Pros: 1. Lightweight. 2. Steam and water buttons easy to use 3. Retractable cord Cons: 1. Keep hitting the temperature knob when we grip the handle. We have turned the knob several times by mistake. The knob issue is enough to just rate this as OK.
Summary: The new panasonic iron is wonderful. It isn't too heavy, heats up rapidly and has a nice amount of steam. I am a quilter so I use my iron a lot. I love the rewind cord. I don't have a cord trailing around my quilting studio.
Summary: Bought this iron for my wife as the professional one I gave her 15 years ago failed. Read the reviews on this and several other medium priced irons and this one came up on top. She has been useing it for a few days and loves it. She sews quite a bit including quilting, garment construction.
