I bought one from a mall kiosk. Problems: (1) black water will get on your clothes if you are not careful to rinse it out each time. (2) You have to refill it 2 or 3 times for each shirt. (3) The unit gets very hot and if you are not careful to only touch the handle, you will get burned. (4) It takes more power the more salt you put in it. It would dim my lights and it can easily blow a fuse.

I bought my Italsteam at a mall in Florida about 8 months ago. I am a costume designer and wardrobe manager for theater companies and I do so without a car. It is small and portable and very easy to use if you follow the directions. I love it.
The only things you should really be aware of going in are that:

1. The steam only lasts 8 minutes and needs to be refilled. But for those 8 minutes it does an amazing job at getting out wrinkles in virtually any fabric I have tried it on. Yes you need to be careful after having used it for a while because the base does get hot but this is not exactly surprising considering there is no separate tank for the heating to happen in. I just keep a tea towel handy for use when when adding water. otherwise this does not do any harm to fabric.

2. You MUST use salt as per the instructions or the chemical reaction that produces the steam will not happen. (did it once out of necessity, it will not happen again).

3. DO NOT over fill the steamer, (that brown water other reviewers complain about spitting out of the steamer? well the spitting only happens when you put too much water in the steamer). Otherwise the brown water stays inside.

4. You need to rinse it out at the end of your usage in a day (I wouldn't want to leave salt water sitting around in a product with metal components for long periods anyway, think corrosion and rust).

5. It doesn't do crisp but that is not important to me since that is not what I bought it for.

Basically it does the job of a larger steamer in a very compact package It is meant as a travel steamer and as such is small and somewhat limited at 8 min a shot. if it had enough steam for 15 or 20min I would give it 5 stars but it does what it promises and that is really all you can ask of anything.

I just bought this iron from a mall vendor for $50.00. Before purchasing, the guy let me iron a few shirts and showed me how to clean it. Once home, I used it a few times on two shirts (one black and one white) and a pair of black pants. It did a good job overall. I did notice the brown water when emptying the iron but once I rinsed it clean, I have yet had a brown water stain on my clothes. I read the reviews for this product and it seems some people don't know how to follow instructions or didn't pay attention in science class.

First, don't overfill with water. Just fill the cup with water, pour into iron and once it starts to steam WAIT ABOUT 20 SECONDS. If water spits out with the steam then you have added too much water. Just pour some out.

Second, the brown water is created during the chemical reaction with the water. The sodium in the salt conducts electricity. This is NOT rust water. The water should be brown and the steam should be white.

Third, this product isn't like a regular iron. Leaving brown water in the iron until next use isn't a good idea in my opionion. I will continue to rinse it out after every use.

Overall, the product does work. I can iron my clothes in my closet while they still hang on the rack. But the product isn't too sturdy. Meaning, if you have young kids and they get a hold of it they will most likely break it...

I have used many steamers and this is hands down the best that I've ever used. I was surprised by the other reviews.....as all you have to do is follow the instructions and you will have a great experience. You must rinse it out in between each refill or brown water will get on your clothes, but just take the few seconds to rinse it out. It starts almost instantly. You can use it on your hotel bed like an iron and put creases in your pants. You can use it upright to do hanging items. It is powerful and emits a lot of steam. It does get hot. So when I refilled it I used a washcloth to hold onto the base. Also by turning it on its side you can pause the steam from coming out. After using mine on my most recent business trip - I highly recommend it.

I was in Vegas like another reviewer and bought this product thinking: 1. Quality must be good as it was made in Italy 2. Somehow, it worked in the kiosk and I even tried it myself.

I took it home (followed directions perfectly), and it just did not do a great job at all. In fact, it had a brown stuff coming out on the clothes. I will contact customer service and perhaps the credit card company.

I suppose, my only saving grace is that hopefully this review and others I will post online will prevent people from making the mistake that I did. A mistake that cost me 40 dollars.

Thanks

DO NOT BUY. Learn from my mistake.
I am a jerk for buying THREE at the mall. I was weary at first, but I tried it and it really seemed to work. I have been looking for a good steamer and I bought two more for presents. It doesn't work. Brown stuff has ruined my favorite shirt. I went back to the mall kiosk and he told me to bring it back and he will look at it, acting totally "surprised" about the brown stuff. Please, give me a break. The biggest tragedy is that I can't find my receipt to return them and now I am out $100 and my best shirt.
