Drips and Steam Button is Stuck
7/8/2010
Pros
Cons
Best Uses
Comment:
This iron drips water when you iron because it is simply poorly designed. There is no cover to prevent the water from dripping out as you iron. Also, after only about 2 months the button for steam remains stuck on the down position and is unusable.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
