Vitessa™ Advanced Steam Stainless Soleplate Cranberry Iron is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great iron This is a nice iron that is super easy to use. It heats up quickly and there is no problem with leaking water all over my clothes, like other steam irons. Using this iron speeds up my ironing jobs quite a bit, which is wonderful. The cord is long and the iron itself seems to be made very well. All in all, this is a great iron that works well and is convenient to use.

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.
