Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro You can get through a big load of laundry without getting tired
At three pounds, this iron is heavy enough to smooth out the wrinkles without requiring too much effort on your part. It also helps that the soleplate has a stainless steel surface that easily glides on all fabrics.
Pro It's easy to store
This iron has a retractable cord that makes it very convenient to store since it takes much less space.
Pro It doubles as a steamer for getting rid of creases fast
If you're in a hurry, or only need to iron a shirt, for example, and don't want to take out the ironing table, you can just hang the wrinkled garment and quickly blast it with steam from your iron.
Pro It's very safe
You don't have to worry about leaving this iron unattended: To prevent accidents, it has a safety switch that will shut it off after 30 seconds if it's laid on the soleplate or tipped over, and after 15 seconds if you put it on the heel.
Pro The temperature controller is placed conveniently
The heat controller is in the front of the handle to make it easier to check the current setting and change the temperature while you're ironing.
Con No indicator that the heat up is complete
There's no LED indicator that would show that the iron has reached the required temperature. It takes about two minutes to heat up, so you'll have to keep an eye on the watch.
Con There's some dripping from the base plate
Sometimes you can notice drops of water collecting at the steam holes of the iron which creates a risk that it will start leaking water on your clothes.
