Summary: This iron gets very hot and performs perfectly. Ii love the ironing feature on both ends of the iron. It's a little bit extra from your $20 iron but totally worth it. no spitting no water leakage it's great. The only thing I miss is a retractable cord.
Summary: I purchase this stem iron because had lot of good reviews. My old stem iron, a Sapphire Auto Off from Braun, after twenty years of amazing work start to dripping water, this company now make only irons who need a USA electrical transformation. I order this Panasonic and the first thing I notice it is quite light, I prefer a more heavy iron, because usually work better. This one don’t reach a high temperature, less of what need any kind of fabric.
Summary: First, the delivery was timely..earlier than I expected. This is the best iron I've ever purchased and I've purchased $100+ irons. The unique shape of the plate makes it easy to get into small corners easily and the iron gets very hot. No dripping water! I actually enjoy ironing now. I've already recommended it to a couple of people.
Summary: I bought this iron for $40 from an online merchant called Shoponlinemart, as a new "Buy it now" item. The iron did not heat up adequately even on the hottest setting. Unfortunately, the seller's warranty was for 30 days only, so when I asked for repairs or exchange, Shoponlinemart refused to do anything about it. The iron had a one-year Panasonic warranty, but Panasonic refused to honor it because I had purchased on Ebay. I think the product is junk at any price.
