Pro It's one of the most powerful budget irons
The 1500-watt Maytag M400 is a powerful iron: it will heat up quickly (it competes with many $100+ irons in this regard), produce a lot of steam, and easily get you through a big heap of laundry. A significant advantage is that its price is very competitive - under $50.
Pro It heats up very quickly
You don't have to wait long before starting to iron: the M400 is ready to use in under 55 seconds with a full tank of water. Most steam irons take about 2-3 minutes.
Pro It doubles as a steamer
You can use this iron as a clothes steamer to get rid of wrinkles very quickly. This is handy if you're in a hurry and suddenly realize that you forgot to iron your shirt, for example.
Pro Ironing goes smoothly and with little effort
The sole plate is made out of stainless steel that glides easily on the clothes. The iron itself weighs 3.3 pounds, which is heavy enough to smooth out the wrinkles but not to make you tired.
Con The temperature controller is placed somewhat awkwardly
The temperature controller is right under the handle, so it's hard to see what setting it is currently on. You also have to use both hands to change it while ironing.
