I purchased this iron from JTF but I am afraid this is the worst iron I have ever used, and at 64 years old and having worked in the hotel industry, I do believe I have some knowledge regarding laundry and the presentation of bedding and clothes. This iron does not glide over clothes but is cumbersome and heavy and drags rather than irons. The steam output is so excessively great that the clothes feel overly damp.
How this iron has passed tests and ended up on shop shelves is, quite frankly, beyond me and I was so looking forward to using it. I take no pleasure in writing this. This is the first review I have ever written, but sadly I thought it deserved to be said.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
