Comment:
At first I thought this was the perfect iron, then I used it several times. The iron leaks from both the front and back. The steam works good for a while then stops without warning. The temp dial has to be almost at maximum temp for the steam to work at all. It is now dropping globs of water all over my clothes while ironing. This is undoubtedly the worst iron I have ever used. I have just ironed my last article of clothing using this iron, it is going in the garbage! It states that it has an extra long cord which is true but, it is not smooth and does not slide across the ironing board easily. This is such a terrible iron I will not give it to another person to use. Trash!

I iron clothes & items as I need them. Great heat & steam. Settings good. Starting leaking 6 months after purchase. That's why I rated it as a 3 star.
