Rated 5 out of 5 by from sleek design, great performance It's a great steam iron, perfect for my hubby's work clothes, creates lots of steam and flattens the fabric nicely without having to go over it multiple times. I will recommend it to others. I recvd a sample of the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not at all happy with this iron I bought this iron a year or so ago, and haven't been happy with it. It has no on/off switch, and it's really hard to tell when there's water in the reservoir, because of the smoky color of the plastic. In addition, it shuts itself off constantly, and I have to wait for it to reheat. Since I use it when sewing, I don't want to wait for it to heat back up every time I need it. Now, however, after not using it for a couple of weeks, it won't heat up at all. Lights up, but doesn't heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Iron for Laundry and Sewing Overall, I am happy with this iron. I sew clothes and make quilts, so I put irons through the wringer.Pros:The spray and steam shot functions are robust.If you don't want steam, don't add water to the tank.The water door is a great feature! It eliminates a lot of spills.It has all kinds of auto-off safety features.It heats up quickly, which is important when I'm going back and forth between the sewing machine to the ironing board frequently and the iron has turned off between uses.The cord swivels nicely and very rarely gets in my way.The unit has a good sturdy feel, and the handle is comfortable.It's lightweight, but this means that I need to use more pressure if the water tank isn't full.Cons:My main gripe is the stainless steel soleplate. It looks like it's a thin sheet that's wrapped around a plastic form. This material scratched immediately, and it's very difficult to clean. It took three sessions with the hot iron cleaner to remove the starch accumulation. Because the soleplate is primarily plastic, it doesn't have much heft. I find that I need to press down much more. I'm taking off one star because the soleplate is one of the most important parts of the iron and really determines its functionality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped heating after a month! I've only used this iron maybe 15-20 times just to press seams while sewing and when I plugged it in this morning, the light goes on but it does not heat up. I expected a quality product since Black & Decker is a well known name, needless to say I'm very disappointed. I do not recommend this product, don't waste your money like I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped heating after extremely light usage Received as a gift in Dec. 2015, have used it maybe a total of 15 times since then. Am now starting to get into my sewing again and I plug it in and the power light turns on but no heat after plenty of time waiting to warm up. Highly disappointed and aggravated. Do not recommend for long term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick heat up This iron is quick and easy to use. It heats up quickly, steams great but leaks a little bit of water so do not overfill water basin.
