Comment:
We were never really happy with its performance, but the heater stopped fully heating the water within a few months, and it got worse month to month even with self-cleaning. It is effectively dead. Since we were never really happy we won't return it for repairs. $50 wasted.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months

Comment:
I am very disappointed with this iron. It leaked a little at the beginning. I use spring water as some suggest but it still leaks. I did not over fill it. I have given it several months and it just keeps getting worse. Then last night I did some ironing and it continued to leak. I let it sit for awhile then all of a sudden ALL of the water drained from the iron right on the ironing board. I am returning it today. This should not happen.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
