Summary: Before I bought this iron, I had bought a cheap iron and i got what I paid for. When that iron stopped working I bought the Shark. I was very happy with it until, after only 3 months, the water spray button stopped working. When you pay 40.00 for an iron, you expect it to work longer than 3 months.
Summary: The title says it all! I own a small boutique business and am extremely picky about the irons that I purchase. This iron is lightweight considering all of the functions, and works very well. I actually went through ALL of our fabric and ironed everything just to be able to use it! I would absolutely recommend this. It's held up well even with daily ironing. It's the first iron yet that has been able to keep up with me!
Summary: I bought this iron two months ago and only used it four times. The last time I used it, I was ironing cream colored linens when I see this greenish blue stuff on it. I looked at the iron and it was all over. I tried everything to clean it, even hot water and vinegar as they recommended and it didn't come off; it's permanent. You must make sure you are using bottled water in the iron (do not use tap water), and be sure to self clean it after every other use.
Summary: Bought this iron less than a year ago, and it eventually just stopped working. Has an auto shutoff which would be nice if it worked correctly. Would shut off while ironing and it can't be turned back on without unplugging it for 5-10 seconds and the plugging back in. What a pain!
4 Months of use before heat decreased and steam started spitting water

Summary: '4 Months of use before heat decreased and steam started spitting water' Like another reviewer I was 4 months into the use of this iron when I pulled the box out of the closet to inquire about my product registration and warranty. It has a one year warranty that requires me to send the defective iron to Euro Pro, the maker of Shark--I pay to ship and send a check for 9.95 for them to send me a replacement.
Summary: We bought this at one of the big box stores and liked it so well that we immediately bought another for backup. It seems to perform as well as the high-priced brands, but at a much more reasonable price. Lightweight and well-balanced. We especially liked how quickly it heats up. The first one lasted about five years with fairly heavy use. For the price, I consider that good service. We'll buy another.
