Summary: Design is poor with temp setting selection on the top where your hand sits while using the iron. Consequently temp setting changes unexpectedly. Also doesn't hold temp well even when on high. Iron is very heavy. I need a consistent temperature iron since I sew and quilt. My old iron was a Black & Decker. It was cheaper and worked much better but after years of use no just quite working. I am taking the Sharp back! I'll get another B & D!
Summary: I just started using my iron, today it burnt my sweater and left mark on the iron. I unplugged it and 40 minutes later it was still hot to the touch. The first time I used the power burst button a white powder substance sprayed out, of course all over my black pants.
Summary: I've had this model of iron for a couple of years now and use it occasionally. I've never liked this iron, the steam has never worked consistently and upon my most recent trial, I find that water leaks from the bottom. Not what I expected from this iron.
