Great for class

Karen Graves, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this iron to take to classes. I am a hand applique quilter and teach and take classes in applique. This is so handy not only to pack in my cart, but small and compact while in class. It worked very well for me at the last quilt show I attended and I got a lot of comment on it. I really like it and the price too.

Very very DISAPPOINTED

  • Summary: It works no better than a heavy book being dragged over a cloth - in addition to all its crappiness it spills water all over the place.

Very good, with a few minor caveats

RMD, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: I got this for travel and crafts, and tested it out on my handkerchiefs, which are 100% cotton, very wrinkle-prone, and annoying to iron. This worked fine on them, and also for pressing out a top with a pintuck decoration on the bodice. The size is very nice for packing, and it's comfortable for my hand (I'm a petite person, so it may be less comfortable for a man or a woman with larger hands, not sure).

Great iron

  • Summary: Just another quality iron-miniaturized and super cute! This little iron has a nice weight to it and doesn't feel cheap. I couldn't resist the price and would work great for ironing my kids little clothes.

Don't waste your money

Frances I Pizzulo, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this iron to press seams open while sewing. The thing that attracted me to this iron is the compact size and shape of the handle. I have arthritis and the handle makes it easy to hold. I am very disappointed with the product, it is a steam iron but does not produce any steam. I have read and re-read the instructions many times to assure I was using it properly but, alas no steam.

AWESOME IRON!!!!

Amy L Mayo "Working Mom who loves quilting, a..., Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Love this little workhorse!!!! I bought it back before Christmas when it was on sale and I've been using it ever since. I keep it on a little table beside my sewing machine and use it when I'm doing a lot of foundation/paper peicing, or just for little pressing jobs. It doesn't seem like it holds much water, but it steams better than my regular (expensive) professional iron. Fits great in my hand and takes a licking.

The good and the bad

MissPammy, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a small iron just like this, so I was delighted to find one at twenty-two dollars and change--until I got charged almost twenty-seven dollars for this one. That should have clued me in. When the iron arrived, I opened the box and thought "How cute!" But as other reviewers have mentioned, this "nonstick" iron has worse drag than one with no nonstick coating at all. It's like ironing with a brick.

Small & Feature Rich--Lacking Quality

W. Barnes "W. Barnes", Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchasesed this Steamfast Home and Away Iron because of the apparent bonus features: convenient cord storage, "heat resistant" storage pouch, measuring cup, and reportedly ergonomic handle. What I found was disappointing. The convenient cord storage is a pain in the neck. It takes a significant amount of time to wrap the cord correctly Around the handle because of its length (albeit a positive feature) and the small circumference of the iron handle.
