Vitessa™ Advanced Steam Nonstick Green Iron is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the vertical steam option! Overall good iron! I love that I can hang an item and steam it on the hanger. It gets hot quickly and has an auto off. The only complaint I have is that the iron does drip a bit when using any steam function. I'm not sure if it's just not hot enough when I go to use it or what's going on. I also have a more expensive iron that does the same thing, so I just figure it's something irons do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Saver, Powerful, and Brilliant This has become my go to Iron, especially when I'm in a rush. Not only does it warm up fast, it does the job extremely well. Clean, crisp shirts. Sharp creases. I can press my entire suit (pants and jacket) and shirt in ten minutes and be out the door by fifteen minutes.My only suggestion to anyone looking to buy an iron - consider the version that can retract the power cord inside the unit. That little feature is a godsend after tripping over this cord a few times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I <3 this iron! I have been using the Vitessa Advanced Steam Iron for a while now and it is great! Between the spray and the shot of steam, ironing my grandchildren's cotton karate gis is no longer such a chore. Wrinkles are easily removed from my synthetic & blended clothing as well. I just recently discovered that the iron can be used vertically as a steamer & was able to remove wrinkles from a wool blend coat while it was still on the hanger. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome iron! This iron is great. Not too heavy, takes care of wrinkles well and the steamer feature is wonderful, though it's a bit awkward to hold the button on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic iron I was given this iron to product test for free, and I will say you cant go wrong. I liked the the non stick plate on it. Very smooth. The dial is east to read and doesnt move once you set it. The steam feature is excellent espcially the adjustability for the different types of clothing. Great iron well made you will love it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features! I got this Black and Decker-Vitessa Steam Iron a few weeks ago and I honestly love it. It works extremely well. It's super easy to use. It came with instructions on how to use it. The features are great. It has temperature control settings also with a pamplet to let you know which settings to use for certain clothing types like cotton and wool etc. It has a 3-way shutoff. I really like that if you leave the Iron on your shirt without moving it that it will go into Auto-Off mode so you don't have to worry about burning your clothes. Also it has a vertical steam so you can steam it right on the hanger which is really nice if you are in a hurry or just need to touch up. This Iron is honestly perfect for everyone. I'm extremely happy with this Black and Decker Vitessa Steam Iron!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I have had this iron for about a month now and so far I like it a lot. It glides smoothly and effortless over clothes and gets the wrinkles out without a lot of work.
