Easy-Fill Water Tank

Light 'N Easy™ Compact Steam Iron is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Steam My older iron went pretty much dead. It was also a heavy one that I was not too fond of. This iron is light weight and does not hurt my hands after doing a good load of clothes that need to be ironed. The steam does come out easily and loading the water is easy too. I do like that the water container is on the front so it is easier to see how much water there is left unlike my older model that had it below my hand and you never truly knew how much was in it until you propped it upright. Overall, I am impressed with this iron. It has help up for two years now with iron sessions happening just about every week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best iron I’ve ever used This iron has been a hame changer for our household. I am so pleased with steam features on the iron. I use it several times a month to iron military uniforms and it gives me the best clean lines of any comparable product. I travel a lot and it is so light to carry with me that I ditched my travel iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little guy! Ok so I’ve thrown all I have at this Iron. Started out with iron in letters to make family stockings, and hubbys dress shirts, and my dresses. Then to make things a little more interesting I used it on my silk pajamas and it worked like a charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Lightweight Iron I received this iron and was excited to try it out. The main feature that I was interested in was that it was lightweight. Just removing it from the box let me see how light it actually was. I wanted to test the steam function out and I was very happy. This iron gives off a good amount of steam which makes it even easier to iron clothes. Another feature I really like is that it has an auto shut off. I don't have to worry if I get side-tracked while ironing; I just know that the iron will turn itself off. Overall, I really like this iron. It's lightweight, easy to use and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Non stick sole plate has a build up or is coming off. It doesn’t seem to be coming out of the holes, just on the smooth surface.  Can’t wipe it off but when its hot it seems to get on my clothes.

Asked by: Wanda

I am wondering what degree fahrenheit the hottest setting of this iron gets to? Or what the breakdown of each setting is in degrees

Asked by: Nc1902

I just purchased light n easy iron and took it out of box and read instructions. I turned it on.   The light keeps clicking on then offf.  Is this supposed to happen or is this a defective iron?
