Summary: Am an avid quilter and find it helpful to have this little gem right next to my sewing machine as I sew. Alternative is getting up and down to use a full-size iron and ironing board. Helpful to be able to use steam or not.
Pros: Clear Instructions, Easy To Use, Great Value For The Money, Performs Perfectly, Solid construction, Useful For Travel
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.
Summary: Been using for few months now. How easily this little iron gets the wrinkles out, especially with the steam function. A regular-sized steam iron is probably more cumbersome than using this small one. It heats up fast, too. I haven't traveled with it yet but look forward to it when I'll need to.
Summary: I bought this for patchwork and for that it is good. It heats up quickly and so it is very suitable for craft work or sewing. And if you sort of wrap the cord around your wrist it won't keep gathering (and wrinkling) the fabric you just may have ironed. But if you have a lot of ironing of any kind and not a lot of time, patience or are energy minded, this iron is too small to take that on at one time, because you would have to keep refilling the water container and...
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).
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.
