Summary: For all it's goodness, it does iron really well, I cannot recommend this product. As others have noted the design of the base with its two prong-like extensions make it very vulnerable to tipping over. Who wants something tipping over and headed for the floor as dangerous as a hot iron? Luckily wthen it feel it didn't hit one of my dogs or me. And after it hit the floor the soleplate chipped making it unusable. I will not be replacing it with this model.
Summary: Wife writing - The best iron I've ever used. This iron cut my ironing time almost in half. I iron long sleeve uniform shirt with epaulets, being able to do sleeves without turning the iron around, or any corner/seam, simplifies ironing. The iron is hotter than any iron I've owned in the last 10 years, removing wrinkles in one to two passes. My other irons took 3 to 4 passes. It is ceramic, even at the hottest temp it did not stick.
Summary: I purchased this Iron when it was listed below $50. At that price, this would probably be the best in it's price range. PROS Multi Directional Ironing is great especially with ironing sleeves of formal shirts or removing wrinkles from pleated pants. However, the 25% reduction is a marketing thing. It's more of a convenience than a time saver. If someone is a complete novice at ironing, I could see how that would be a time saver.
Cheap feel, odd design of this iron leaves wrinkles in my brow

Summary: I bought this iron when I dropped my last one (a Black and Decker) one too many times and it finally stopped working. As other reviews have noted, this one is indeed quite top heavy, but is surprisingly more stable standing on the ironing board compared to my last, more traditionally shaped iron, probably because they had to take carefully design the legs to compensate for this.
Summary: I admit, I bought this iron mainly for how it looks. After using it a couple times though, I am thoroughly impressed. It heats well, stands upright securely ( I was a little concerned about this) and the controls are simple and easy. The shape takes a little getting used to in the way you iron but once you get the hang of it it is more convenient.
