I like the fact that the dial is on the top of the iron and not under the handle. Also great, is the rewinding feature and no tangling or dangling wire.

I've used the iron several times, and find that unless I have it turned on to a high number for steam ironing, it irons, but doesn't steam. When it does, it does an excellent job. The dry iron is very good.

I haven't tried the self-clean feature; I will do so after a month or so. I've always used GE/Black and Decker irons and have been satisfied with them. My last iron which was not a Black and Decker, clogged up and though I set the iron for steam, it did not steam. And, what made me buy a new iron was that the dial (which was under the handle and difficult to turn) wound completely around and I could not tell whether it was ON or OFF.

In all, I am happy with my new B&D iron.

It is now January 2010, and for the past few months had excellent results ironing. When rewinding the cord would stop, I would have to pull it out a little, then press the button to rewind. This is a minor inconvenience.

My problem now is that the sole plate is scorching, and I am not using any spray starch since the steam setting does an excellent job. During the winter months, I don't iron more than 30 minutes at a time. During the summer months, I have an hour or more or ironing at a time. A few weeks ago, I had flannel shirts and PJs, and when I finished ironing and turned it off, the sole plate was all BLUE. It could be from the flannel shirts I ironed. I had one hard time trying to clean it off as the manual instructs. Finally I resorted to a Rescue soap pad. Again, tonight, I ironed several men's cotton shirts and a few cotton dish towels -- and the sole plate scorched.

I NEVER GIVE REVIEWS FOR ITEMS, BUT THIS IS A MAJOR EXCEPTION. I'M A SEAMSTRESS AND SEW FOR OTHERS, AND IRONING OR PRESSING IS A NIGHTMARE. YOU CANNOT CLEAN THE SOLEPLATE OF THIS IRON. EVEN WITH THE COMMERCIAL FAULTLESS CLEANER. I AM GOING TO CONTACT BLACK AND DECKER, THEY NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR STEALING MONEY FROM GOOD INTENDED BUYERS.
I BEG YOU DO NOT BUY THIS IRON. YOU WILL BE MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE. This is less than a 1 star. It's a minus 100 star.

This iron treated all of my clothes nicely - the soleplate still looked brand new after three years of use, the steam was plentiful, and it slid on my clothes very gracefully. For three years, I haven't had any problems.

A few weeks ago, however, the signs of a dying iron started to appear. The beep that it makes whenever I plug it in started sounding strange, but it still functioned normally. The LED light that was supposed to change from red to green only stayed on red, but it still functioned normally. Then the electrical cord started getting unusually warm and sparked occasionally, after which the iron stopped working altogether. I don't know whether to say to stay away from Black & Decker irons or not, because it's so hard to find a long-lasting iron from any company now.

I've owned a similar iron a year or so. I iron rarely, only when sewing. My fella does more -- his shirts, still occasionally. I've begun using it on a quilt and noticed that the rubber on the top gray portion is peeling away. Alas, I like to keep stuff running a long time (I drive a '92 in great condition.) so am not happy to see the eminent demise of the iron. I'd be glad to send B&D a pic, but there is no 'customer service' on their web site, so B&D, you invited this posting. It has begun sounding its alarm at inappropriate times (when it's resting and off), which may mean that something's bakin' inside as well. Finally, there is no linen setting on mine. I wouldn't choose this iron. Ideas for another, anyone?

I've been ironing for more than 25 years and *never* had a problem with residue on a sole plate until we bought this model. Fabric sticking to the iron is a constant problem. If you're going to buy this, order some Faultless Hot Iron Cleaner at the same time. You will need it often.

Although we had the iron for only a short time before replacing it, the retractable cord also did not work well. We had our previous iron for many years and never had so much trouble getting the retraction mechanism to work completely.

I really like this iron. I love green so it was the perfect color and it does its job. It heats up quickly and is nice and heavy so it will knock out any wrinkles in its path. The only thing I really don't like about the iron is the retractable cord. As stated before, sometimes it gets stuck right smack in the middle. It also can't fit on the shelf in my hallway closet because it is slightly too large standing up.

Despite those minor setbacks it is very easy to handle. Doesn't have the list of materials like most other irons to guide you (cotton, nylon, etc.) but like I said if you have been ironing long enough then you will have no problem using this one.
