Summary: This iron is heavy and well-made. My old Proctor-Silex broke and started leaking after a year of use. I like the 'extra steam' button. Copious amounts of steam come out of this thing, and the water reservoir is huge. The safety-turn-off timers do work, I tested them. Nice, sturdy base to rest it upright. A great product, glad I waited for this to ship because the value justifies the wait.
Summary: I don't undersstand the good ratings this iron has received, I bought this iron based on them and I'm very disappointed. In a few weeks the teflon coating is scuffed, there are some stains on the soleplate that I don't know where they came from. I have always used distilled water on the iron, and have cleaned it as suggested, however this hasn't help to keep it in good working condition. No wonder the warranty is only one month!
Summary: This iron with the technology of 'nonstick' soleplate is saving me everyday. I do laundry and ironing most of the time on a daily basis, even I iron my silk shirts or my cotton suit shirts (which are really sensitive) Tefal providing me the best. The steam and the plate of the iron is really beneficial especially people who are really obsesive about wrinkles on the clothes and at the same time it does not damage the fabrics.
Summary: This iron met all my expectations. I love the fact that where the cord goes into the iron, it swivels which makes itm easy to use. The fact that this iron is very narow at one point it is great for ironing buttons on my husbands dress shirts!
Summary: I'm a guy...bought this iron because I needed one that was easy to operate and also turned off automatically. Easy to fill with water and steams nicely. Most of my clothes are denim and cotton or a blend. Works well on these as I rarely adjust the knob settings. No brainer for someone wanting a good iron without having to figure out how to work it. Heats up very quickly as well.
Summary: For the extra money this iron really gives extra bang for your buck. It steams well and the extra burst of steam button is exceptional. It gets wrinkles out of things that would seem hopelessly wrinkled and since it holds a lot of water, it doesn't run out quickly. It heats fast and the nonstick surface is wonderful. I haven't had it long enough to give durability a five star rating, but I am very very pleased with this purchase.
Summary: It steams, irons well & doesn't leak so I would purchase this iron again. It shuts off when it isn't moved for 8 minutes and the plate is big so it isn't a good iron for sewing; however, that's not a problem as the small $10 irons are better for sewing, but are lousy for clothes ironing.
