Unfortunately you do get what you pay for (and I was ripped off paying $45 at the beauty store for it.) After about 2 days of use, there was a short in the rotating cord and if the iron is held at an odd angle, it turned off. It was still usable, but I had to modify the way I curled my hair to avoid it turning off and losing heat. After about 6 months, you can see the ceramic coating chipping off a little - and I used the iron about 3-4x per month.
If you're in the market for a cheap curling iron - I would suggest this because compared to the Revlon, Remington and Conair brands I've had in the past, this is the closest to a high end curling iron among them - most likely you will have better luck with your iron than I did.
I bought a transformer to go along with my travel adapter for my next trip and discovered that the 110v curling irons just don't work well with the transformer in place. I don't know why, but for some reason, they just don't seem to heat up. I considered buying a European curling iron just for use in international travel, but when I saw this one, I realized that it was a better solution. I don't need to worry about different curling irons depending on which country I'm going to and don't need to carry around a clunky transformer that will render the tool useless anyhow.
Keep in mind, you'll still need a small adapter to use this outside of the US because the plug is intended for American outlets, but you won't need a transformer. This works equally well at home or abroad, so even if you don't have travel plans yet, you can safely buy it without any worry.
My only complaint was that there seemed to be a bit of industrial grease (or something from the factory) on the handle when it arrived. I briefly considered returning it, but was able to clean it off. I'm not mentioning this to complain because as you can see from the rating, I love the curling iron. I just am mentioning it in case anyone from the company sees it - I'm sure it was a one-time incident and it came off easily, but was a bit off-putting at first.

I like the adjustable heat setting and it heats up quickly. My only problem is that the little stand is too far away from the handle and it's difficult for my (medium sized) hand... Read morePublished 8 days ago by Ann R. Hipson
Bought this to take with me to a trip to China. From previous experiences with other hot tools I was afraid, I was going to plug it in and it would go shot but that did not happen. Read morePublished 10 days ago by mb2016

Very pleased with the product. Does the job perfectly for lose curls. Best of all it is dual voltage, a necessity for travelling abroad.Published 1 month ago by Mary
