Good Product; could use some tweaking
on December 14, 2011
Love using this product; but a few kinks.
First, you have to remove the batteries when not in use so that it doesn't suck them dead while sitting on the shelf. I used it once to try it out when I got it and it was nice; but I let it sit with the batteries in and the next time I pulled it out to use it (about 2 weeks later), the batteries were not working well.
Second, the flip out stand is great, but I wish it had some kind of spring or sensor to fold back because it gets in the way if you don't push it back when in use. It's hard using this quickly & one-handedly because of that stand. It gets a little frustrating when you need it for heating it up and when not in use, but it has to be out of the way when you use it, then you need it again -quick- to put it back down on the table.
Last, it would be nice if you could turn off the light if you don't need it so that you can save battery life, too. The light is Wonderful, but I don't always need it.
Like I said, though, it's a great product and it sure beats the corded ones. I'm very glad I bought this... I just deal with the small issues because I'm happier using this one than the old corded one I had prior. :)
