Defective and unpredictable from day one, broken in one year
on October 5, 2009
I thought I'd write a review since I am back at Amazon looking for a new clothing iron after my Black & Decker died this week. I had this item for just over a year and it was always an awful iron. For starters, it has a really awkward water spout that must be filled by means of a narrow plastic cup. If you lose the cup while you own the iron it will be nearly impossible to fill. Secondly, my iron started malfunctioning almost immediately. For the year that I had the iron, the digital display would fluctuate between heat settings on its own. Every time it would change settings, sometimes 7 times in a minute, you would hear a high-pitched beep, which as you can imagine went from funny to obnoxious really quickly. As if that wasn't enough, it was sometimes too hot or not hot enough at the highest setting, which lead to me burning a few things. Now, as another reviewer has also experienced, the display on the iron died and after that (within two days) the iron would no longer heat up. Just buy something else and save yourself the trouble.
