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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
