Product Description

Product Description

This Ultraglide iron gets the job done and makes ironing a little less tedious than most irons. The scratch-resistant, non-stick Ultraglide Diffusion soleplate glides smoothly over clothes so ironing goes faster and requires less pressure. Tiny holes in the soleplate disperse steam evenly, making it easier to remove wrinkles. A sliding lever in front of the iron’s handle lets you adjust the amount of steam. For tough wrinkles, a burst of steam button delivers a steady spray of water. A spray nozzle on the front of the iron sends a cool mist directly in front of the area being ironed for further help with wrinkle removal. The 250-milliliter water reservoir is a transparent blue plastic, allowing you to view how much water is left. A slide-out drawer on the iron’s handle speeds up refilling and ensures that water won’t leak out. The iron has a self-cleaning system to help flush out mineral build-up and prolong its life. For safety, the Ultraglide Diffusion iron automatically shuts off if left face down or on its side for 30 seconds, or if left propped up on its end for 8 minutes. A 9-foot cord provides plenty of maneuverability without concern about tangles. The soleplate on this iron is covered under a 10-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

It actually does make ironing easier and faster.

I would have purchased another Rowenta, however, it costs too much for an iron that doesn't last.

It heats up quickly, and has nice pressing action.

The cons: (or "It's an ergonomic disaster!")

1. Hold you hand like your holding an iron and are ironing clothes.

Your hand is very likely at an angle where your knuckles form a slight angle slanting down to the heel of your closed hand.

If you grip the handle on the T-Fal 1759 the way its designed, your hand will be slanting thumb-downward, either putting your wrist at a sharp, uncomfortable angle, or forcing you to point your elbow at the ceiling.

I ended up with my palm on spot where the cord enters the iron body, well back on the iron. This tended to make for uneven pressure on the ironing surface.

2. Reaching the steam, steam shooter, and mister controls required me to change my grip slightly - many times I brushed the temperature slider, changing the setting. It should be a rotary control.

3. The cord is made of some extremely flexible material, but it is very, very, soft - enough to seem tacky. It was always catching on the clothes as I ironed, pulling them out of shape or coiling up - getting in the way. The cord material should be a bit stiffer and much slicker -- enough to slide across the clothes as you iron.

4. The water mister shoots a line of water about 2 feet long, and never where you think it should -- usually, it lands on some spot you've already ironed and not the spot you're about to iron.

The Pros:

1. It gets very hot, very quickly. The termostat light is a nice touch.

2. The steam pattern is perfect and the more/less steam control works well.

3. The burst-of-steam is great. On the higher temps, it is enough to almost lift the iron off the board!

I iron every morning and my "Type A" personality requires that I have perfect creases when I go to work. I am a married male that does all of the ironing in my family. Yes, an ironing man. Why do you have such a shocked look on your face? It all started 22 years ago in the military... ...that's another story.
I just purchased the T-Fal Ultraglide Diffussion Model 1759 Iron at Bed, Bath & Beyond. This iron has all the features that I was looking for. After owning a Rowenta Powerglide 2 for about 2 years it started leaking and spitting (I was extremely pleased with it while it lasted). The cord also wore out. So, I checked online reviews, compared prices and features and the T-Fal 1759 seemed the way to go. I also found a $5.00 store coupon so I only paid $34.99 for it. Quite a bargain.
Pros - I am pleased with the soleplate. It glides smoothly across the fabric. The iron is also easy to fill with its slide-out fill "drawer". It has plenty of steam holes. It has all of the features that I was looking for in a modern iron including auto shut-off, self-cleaning, long cord, anti-mineral build up and burst of steam.
Cons - I prefer a higher wattage iron (It's a guy thing... more power, errr). The T-Fal is 1400 watts. I also discovered that while using the burst of steam function it spits causing water to flow out of the holes. This created spots of water on my clothing. Not a lot, but enough to aggravate me. I like lots of steam!! This iron does not produce as much steam as my Rowenta. I would have purchased another Rowenta, however, it costs too much for an iron that doesn't last.
Bottom Line - I will probably be returning this iron today and continue the search for the perfect balance of function, features and price.
UPDATE: I kept the iron because I just couldn't beat the price.

This iron bears up to the T-Fal name. I've used this for a few months now and it works splendid! It's a great deal and well worth your money. There is no spillage like some of the Rowenta irons. The auto-off feature is very helpful and its long cord is a plus. Highly recommended!

This is my second T-Fal iron (I dropped the first one). I am happy with the performance of this iron. It heats up quickly, and has nice pressing action. It's hot at the tip to get into the creases and heavy enough to iron easily. My only complaint is the temperature control slide. It's hard to see where exactly it's at to get it at the right fabric/temperature, and it's also not real firm in its positioning. I liked the dial on my first T-Fal iron better. But for $35, it's high quality and definately on par with a more expensive iron.

The "Ultraglide" sole plate is not gliding very well anymore. After getting a little starch on the sole plate a brown charred film started to form over a small area. I cleaned it with a nylon pad but now the area constantly forms this film, always the same area, and the once smooth surface is rough and irregular. Ironing dress shirts is frustrating now because the iron doesn't glide at all anymore.

I never had this problem with other manufacturer's irons and I am disgusted with this iron's poor quality.

I recently purchased this iron because my 2 year old Rowenta Professional, suddenly, without warning, passed away (cold - wouldn't heat up). I am very impressed (pardon the pun) with this T-fal. It glides like greased lightning, making ironing fast and easy. I figure I can get 2 and half dress shirts done in the time my Rowenta took to do one. No joke! It's hard for me to believe, too. I'll admit I've only had it a month and who knows what lies ahead. But so far it's been smooth sailing. My old Rowenta dripped and left water spots everywhere. This one maybe leaves one or two tiny little drips a shirt. And I love the way the water chamber works compared to the Rowenta (could not fill it without a water bubble developing and blocking the flow - thus spilling water all over the ironing board). The T-fal water chamber works like it should. I also love the fact that this iron is light weight. I used to think that in order to get a good crease on a shirt you need to have a lot of weight. Not true - this light weight iron definitely leaves a better crease than my heavy Rowenta!

This iron is also very well balanced and sits on the ironing board better than the wobbley Rowenta.

One more major attribute: the price!!! The Rowenta was two and half times more expensive! Excellent product for the $$$$.
