Comment:
I would agree with the other reviewers about leaving wet spots all over the clothes SOMETIMES, but not always, and I never could figure out why. Cord got an open in it within one year and it would turn on and off depending how you held the iron. I only used it once a week, so a 1 year lifespan is not acceptable. Poor fill spout design caused me to spill water almost every time I tried to fill it.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I am very disappointed with this iron. Every time I iron a shirt, the shirt ends up with wet spots all over and my hand and sleeve are wet from the drips. The cord gets in the way and the dial is inconveniently located. Can't wait to get rid of it and get another iron!

Comment:
Past models of this iron used to be light-weight and easy to use, but not any more. It constantly drips water from the water-fill opening when it is placed upright. This opening is very poorly designed, with the opening slanting toward the ironing hand when in use and when placed upright. Also, the cord is cumbersome where attached to the iron and the central usage dial (beneath the arch of the handle) is difficult to access and to use. The product is a perfect example of making a bad design out of a formerly good one. I am returning it to the store.
