I am very happy with this great iron. I sew for a living, so this gets daily use in my house, and it is holding up great. I had gone through many irons before this one, and my biggest complaint was always with leaking, spitting, and sputtering. This iron doesn't have any of that! It has a great steam level - not too much, not too little. I love the retractable cord - it makes it easy to store and easy to keep out of reach of my young daughters. My only complaint (and it's a minor one) is that the auto shut-off is a little too enthusiastic ... I would prefer if it didn't shut off so quickly when I really want to press a wrinkle out. Durability It has lasted me years!
