Discover how the Black + Decker Allure Iron can transform your garment care. It adds a fresh, clean look to your clothes to keep you at your best in work attire and weekend wear.

You can even leave clothes on the hanger while you blast away wrinkles with the vertical steam feature.
Use the iron as a steamer for quick touch-ups right on the hanger or for curtains and drapes.
Controls for Variable Temperature
Five different pre-programmed temperature settings allow for a range of heat to fit all fabric types. The easy to use digital display clearly shows selected temperature and also indicates the optimal level of steam needed for each setting; taking the guesswork out of ironing.
Stainless Steel Soleplate
The stainless steel soleplate smoothly glides over all fabrics and resists minor scratches for lasting durability.
Comfort Grip Handle
Designed with ergonomic features and a special attention to comfort, the iron handle fits nicely in your hand.
Auto Clean System
This feature allows you to keep your iron in optimal condition by cleaning the internal area of the soleplate; removing any debris picked up over time or light water residue.

Where it really falls down seems minor but is continually frustrating. The markings on the heat dial are nearly invisible. The designers chose a color for the number settings, that are so close to the color of the dial, that you can't read them. Even under a light the settings are difficult to make out. And you can't just wing it since the heat settings are non-linear around the dial. You have to turn the dial half way around just to get to the #1 setting, but then #2 is right next to #1. #3 Is like another eighth of the way further, but #4 is a quarter turn more. To get to #5 from there is about the same distance as #2 from #3. Why on earth would it be designed like that, and further, why are the controls are VIRTUALLY UNREADABLE?!?
Finally, gauging how much water is in the tank is also an exercise in futility. The tank is colored so you can barely make out the water level without jostling the water around (next to a light) to vaguely see where it's at, and putting water in up to the fill line is equally a wild guess.
The excellence of the ironing performance is just marred by the frustrating controls and the difficulty in discerning the water level.
So, time for a new one. I considered buying another Rowenta, but frankly didn't want to spend more than $45 and the good Rowenta irons cost almost double that. Off I went to look at reviews. Came across the reviews for this Black+Decker iron and was intrigued. I don't need digital anything, just need good heat, great steam, the ability to clean out any calcium buildup, ease in adding water. This met all the criteria. I was concerned at the negative reviews about how difficult it is to see either the dial to select temperature or how much water was in the tank. I personally haven't had those issues since buying the iron. I hold the iron up and the light is coming in through the window and I can see how much water is in the tank. And I also haven't had any problems with the dial or seeing exactly what number I'm on. I keep the iron dialed-in to my most often used temperature, which is 4 (cotton).
Now, for the complaints about no 'off' function on the iron, this is how many irons are made, even my 15+ year old Rowenta. I use an extension cord that has its own 'power off' switch so I can control on/off without having to unplug my iron. I did this for years with my Rowenta iron. Of course the iron also has an auto-off feature that stops the heat to the iron after 8 minutes if the iron is sitting up and 30 seconds if the iron is resting on the sole plate.
As far as the steam, it's pretty good! My old Rowenta has a more powerful steam function, but this iron is half the price and it certainly gets the job done, and the steam function is good. I use my iron mostly for clothes ironing. Actually I try to avoid ironing as much as I can (hey I'm only human). The weight of this Black+Decker D3030 is not that heavy at all. It's not a 'light' iron, but my old Rowenta is heavier. The Black+Decker is comfortable to use. It gets super hot. Heat-up time is not fast but I'd say it's about average--maybe 4 to 4.5min to get to the level needed for cotton. The stainless steel sole plate is good quality. Emptying the reservoir is actually very easy and quick! This motivates me to dump out the water into a measuring cup I keep near the iron right when I'm done ironing. And that is the trick to keeping the build-up of calcium in control. I also now use distilled water to avoid calcium deposits as I do have hard water in my area. But one still needs to empty out the iron to keep the iron running well. So far so good on this iron. I will update this review if I run into any issues.
UPDATE 3/24/16: I'm downgrading my rating from 4 to 3 for now. Why? Take a look at the picture I just uploaded of tan slacks. See those 2 little brown spots? That came from my iron this morning, after pressing the "burst of steam" button. I use distilled water in my new iron AND empty the iron out after every use AND let the iron get hot. This is maybe the 3rd time I used my iron since getting it. I cleaned the iron out when I first got it by filling with water, letting the iron get really hot, and ironing things and using the burst of steam a bunch of times and finally fully emptying the water reservoir. I hoped to avoid this exact staining problem. I was aghast when I was ironing these pants this morning and literally saw these 2 spots be created from the burst of steam. Gahhhhhh. The wet spot surrounding it is from a Shout Wipe & Go cloth,to try and get the stains out. I'm also using a brand new plain ironing cover/pad, so that's not the problem. I'm annoyed.
Update: I added a video to this review (twice) showing water flowing out of the temperature indicator but I guess amazon is not going to show you all this. I guess they don't want to completely discourage people from buying the iron for some reason.
Those Rowenta were three times the price of this Black and Decker. The features of this iron are very competitive with my recently-failed Rowenta Pro - identical sole plate size, stainless steel, adjustable steam, nice heft (I prefer a heavier iron), good water capacity, well designed cord strain relief. The Rowenta was 1700 watts. This one is 1600 watts. I just got through my first Shirt Ironing Marathon and the B&D did a super job. Smooth glide, good steam (even on the low setting). The Rowenta has hundreds of steam holes and this has relatively few, but even so this did a great job on my shirts.
So now we'll have to see how this one lasts. My last Rowenta is now 5 years old, use it about twice a month, for 12 or 15 shirts at a time. So basically one person.
