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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
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.

I just HATE this iron...I didn't get this from Amazon. However, thats not problem. It just wont slide on any type of fabric Cotton or finer blends. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Debra KR
The plate is full of burned cotton that I can't seem to remove. The temperature shoots up unexpectedly while ironing and burns fabric. It's ruined several articles of clothing.Published 22 months ago by runneratheart
We have been using an ICR500 for probably more than 1 year. Everything is great except that dirty brown stuff stuck to bottom of the sole and fell on the shirts. Read morePublished on April 16, 2014 by Frugal Guy
I really like this iron. My daughter bought this iron for me a while back. It is light weight and I love the fact that I can sit it on any surface while it's on. Read morePublished on July 28, 2013 by sappleby
Takes 15+ minutes to heat up. Have had this iron for about a year. Once it's hot, I've had no troubles with it, but it sometimes sits for 25 minutes before heating up. Read morePublished on September 18, 2011 by Charlie's mom
I bought this iron because my old Black & Decker iron, which I had for over 20 years, just didn't get hot any more. I could NOT be MORE disappointed with this product. Read morePublished on September 17, 2011 by artdirector999
An absolute hunk of junk. The retractable cord does not work; the iron does not steam unless on the highest number; the iron sticks to most fabrics rather than sliding across. Read morePublished on May 31, 2011 by BCH
