I bought mine through QVC and it included a detangler paddle brush, a case, and it opened for a flat iron. I have had it since 2016 and have had absolutely NO trouble with it. I have just below shoulder length hair, baby fine, and as long as you don't roll your hair over 2 and 1/2 times, mine doesn't get caught.
The only complaint I have is while curling my hair I hit the temperature button and it changes the temperature, usually to a lower setting. QVC had a newer version where they have modified the barrel so you don't accidentally change the temperature while curling your hair. I have the large barrel. I just ordered a smaller version so I know I am very happy with it.
While visiting my sister, she tried it, and she has shorter hair and she loved it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
