Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked Well Until It Didn't Can't get the iron to come back on!!!!! Worked for about six months. Maybe there's a reset feature but I can't find it. The manual says to check and make sure it's plugged into a working outlet. Really, I wouldn't have thought of that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from With upgraded feature This one is no exception. They have made some improvements, like the auto-clean option that is GREAT. It gives a steady stream of steam, glides effortlessly across all different fabrics, can be used as an upright garment steamer, but the BEST part is the retractable cord!! I will never again buy an iron without it (hopefully won't have to buy another iron). Definitely recommend this iron!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Iron and cute!! I received this product for review and I have to say, it is very easy to use and I love the fact that I can steam a shirt without laying it flat. It's easy to use and makes ironing a uniform shirt easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Iron I like this iron and its easy settings, it works great. However the upright steam leaves something to be desired. It's intended use is just for touch ups, but I have not had success with this function, so would not recommend it for this feature. Based on just the iron itself I would recommend it for it's ease of use and job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminate Unnecessary Trips to the Dry Cleaner! Every week I would have to take a trip to the dry cleaners to pick up and drop off my business clothes. What a waste of time and money. I received the Black and Decker Vitessa Advanced Steam Iron and my clothes' aggravations are gone! I was able to quickly and efficiently iron my work shirts without wasting time and money going to the dry cleaners. The iron was so easy to use and provided a perfectly iron free shirt. I could iron 15 shirts in the time it would take me to drive to the dry cleaners. I have told everyone about the Black and Decker Vitessa Advanced Steam Iron as it makes my life so much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Iron I really love this iron and this is coming from someone who does not like to iron too much. It was easy to use. I especially love the fact that I can have my clothes hanging up and can steam the wrinkles out. No need to constantly bring out the bulky and cumbersome ironing board. I recommend this iron for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not too "in love" with it I received this in exchange for an honest review. I have to say after a really bad start (on my end. I forgot to remove the plastic before turning on) which resulted in some major freaking out and fixing. I don't love this iron very much. It took a very long time to adjust settings just right and iron on some patches to my sons craft apron. Like over an hour. The steam setting made it too wet and then the dry setting (around 4) just didn't get hot enough to adhere the patch. It was frustrating. I hope as it gets used more we figure out all the quirks. I wanted to love this iron but I give it 3 stars. Needs a stronger more intense heat.Also PS don't be an airhead like me and not REMOVE EVERY PIECE OF PACKAGING. I forgot and didn't see the plastic film on the iron part and plugged it right in. Pretty lucky I caught this in time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this iron!! I was happy to get the opportunity to review this iron. My family is very hard on irons and they normally last a couple weeks since they either drop it or use it wrong and melt stuff on the plate. This was sturdy enough that they had to really hold onto it and it is perfect for all the clothing we have tried whether it is all cotton, a blend, poly whatever.
