Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built well and nice and light! To be honest, I like my clothes to look great but am not a huge fan of ironing. Therefore, I was delighted to try this Light ’N Easy Compact Steam Iron which lived up to the name. Ironing was easy, and the light weight was much appreciated. It has a nice long cord so one can move the iron around the garment without issue. I tried this iron both dry and with steam, on a variety of fabrics from lightweight to heavier/denser, and manmade to natural fibers. It performed well on all.The water reservoir is easy to fill and empty, and because it is clear you can see how much water you have left at all times. The sole plate is coated and glides over fabric with ease. The handle felt very comfortable in my hand. I was surprised how quickly the iron heated up after it was plugged in; it seemed like seconds! I left the room to get more clothes to iron, I was gone probably longer than I thought I would be, and the auto-shutoff came into play. While I was coming back to iron, I think this is a good feature because it’s easy to become distracted with other things and just plain forget you left the iron on. I was surprised to find that it came back up to temperature quickly, so I was able to get on with my task. The spray mist feature is wonderful; it directs a mist of water for those stubborn wrinkles that need a bit more oomph. I found that it worked very well.I would recommend this iron. I have owned and used far heavier and less responsive irons in the past. This Light ’N Easy has the features I need, is easy to use, and the light weight doesn’t leave my hand fatigued when I am done ironing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of Steam to go around! Love this new iron, it is extremely sturdy and a great build. This iron delivers the steam in all the right places and one swipe and you are done. No need to iron the same spots over and over to get a smooth finish. Black and Decker has built a great product once again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great iron, but I still don't enjoy ironing. I received my Light 'N Easy Compact Steam Iron this past weekend, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. It has great auto shutoff features so it is less likely to cause a fire I think. I also love how it says right on the iron, which materials use what settings, so I don't have to refer to the manual, which I may have already lost. Another great Black and Decker product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great Iron I have been using this Light 'N Easy™ Compact Steam Iron for a few weeks now. I love that it has a steam function. It also has a sprayer to use. I like how smooth it glides across the clothing when I iron. It seems to heat up fairly quick and is definitely light in weight. The cord is nice and long which makes it easier to use as well. Overall I happy with this item and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Light Smart Steam Iron This Iron is super, I mean it - if you are like me and have tons of ironing you will appreciate how light and easy to maneuver this iron is. My old iron was very heavy and after about hour of ironing I was sweating my arm was hurting and I was not very happy. This is game changer ! Smart steam technology is right on point as well just enough steam to press my husbands Military Uniforms do they look like from dry cleaners. Double plus is happy yellow color - no more boring white - nice to look at makes chore more fun ! Would recommend in heart beat !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black and Decker Light 'N Easy Steam Iron I like my clothes to look good but I really hate ironing, so I was really happy to try this Light ’N Easy Compact Steam Iron. Ironing my clothes was so easy, and the light weight of the iron was great I have arthritis in my hands and its hard to hold on to things but this iron was light and not hard to lift and hold onto. The iron is well built and has a really nice long cord so you can move the iron around without any issues. I was surprised how quickly the iron heated up after I plugged it in The sole plate is coated and glides over fabrics easily. .The water reservoir was easy to fill and empty, and easy to see how much water you have left because it is clear. The spray mist feature also worked well it directed a mist of water for the more stubborn wrinkles that needed a little bit of steam to get them out. I purposely left the iron sit without using it for 30 minutes to test and see if the auto shut off worked which it did. I think this is a great feature because sometimes with how hectic life can be you can get distracted and forget to turn the iron off.. I would highly recommend the Light ’N Easy Compact Steam Iron. I have owned and used far more expensive.larger and heavier irons that did not work as well as this iron does. The Light ’N Easy Compact Steam Iron has the features I like, was very comfortable to use and did an extremely well job at ironing my clothes which were made of several different types of fabrics. Disclosure I received this Light ’N Easy Compact Steam Iron to test and use at no cost for me in exchange for my honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best iron I've ever had!! I love the nonstick coating on this iron. It does a good, fast job. Very easy to fill and empty the water. You can use regular tap water. It clearly show which setting for which fabric you are ironing. It has a nice big indention in bottom to hold the cord easily. I love the 360 degree cord that bends easily. I absolutely recommend this iron!!
