Comment:
I am a quilter and use my iron daily but this is the worst iron I have ever owned. I bought it after reviewing the ratings but have regretted it from the beginning. I finally am so sick of its constant spitting and leaking all over that I intend to replace it. I simply don't know how Consumers Report could have given it such a high rating.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Will not buy another. Before it started leaking, we loved it. Even my husband loved this iron when new. Loved the weight, the smoothness, the steam, the spray, the cord length, the easy water fill, the quick heat-up. We bought it special, distilled water and always used that. About 2 years later, we hate it due to random leaking of water, large & small amounts. We adjusted the temp high as fabric would allow: still leaked. We always allowed a complete warm-up: still leaked. Finally emptied the reservoir and was forced to do without steam. Reviews here & elsewhere confirm leaking.

Drips water constantly

Comment:
The box claims this is an anti-drip iron, but sadly this is untrue. I use this iron in sewing. Since water srips from the holes willy-nilly I can't use it with fabrics that could show water stains. The steam function is inconsistent, sometimes giving out entirely even though there is water in the reservoir.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
